Machine Learning-Based Protein Annotation Tool Predicts Protein Function

Thursday, June 1, 2023 - 09:33 in Biology & Nature

Microbes drive key processes of life on Earth. Research constantly expands the database of microbial DNA sequences but does not provide full biological information about proteins. To engineer microbes, scientists need a fuller understanding of protein function. Scientists currently infer protein function by comparing it with reference databases, but this process is slow. To address this challenge, scientists developed Snekmer, a machine learning-based tool for modeling protein function.
