Conclusions In this paper, we presented a comparative study of six hierarchical classification algorithms for different kinds of protein signatures - Prosite, Pfam and Prints. 5, RIPPER, SVMs, KNN and BayesNet. The results from these algorithms were compared with the results of an algorithm based on a variation of the Top-Down approach named Top-Down Ensembles approach, which combines results from classifiers induced by the five ML techniques previously mentioned. In order to evaluate the performance of these algorithms, experiments were performed using three bioinformatics datasets, which are related with G-ProteinCoupled Receptors (GPCRs).

Discrete models are particulary fit to perform high level structure search, since the search space is greatly reduced and very similar structures can be more easily avoided. The applicability of the discrete models relies on the solution of three difficulties, since discrete models: – Require a scoring function that can ignore the atomic details giving high scores to physically inexact, near native structures. – Need a search technique that can efficiently search the structure space without enumerating all the structures, since the space size is still exponential on the size of the protein.
