Prediction of Secondary Structures of Hemoglobin Using Clonal Selection Algorithm
Abstract— Protein structure prediction is one of the most important research areas in bioinformatics.
Knowing the structure of the protein provides significant information about the function of protein. However,
it is a challenging process to identify the 3-dimensional structure of a protein. Methods such as X-ray
crystallography or nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy require long duration and high costs,
furthermore, these methods are not appropriate for every protein. Artificial intelligence and heuristic methods
are preferred in the prediction of 3-dimensional structures of proteins recently because of their significant
contribution. In this paper, the use of the Clonal Selection Algorithm (CSA) method for protein secondary
structure prediction is studied and the results are compared to other artificial intelligence and heuristic
methods. Artificial immune system (AIS) based CSA predicted hemoglobin secondary structure with a high
prediction accuracy of 88.38 %.
