Bioinformatics: a knowledge engineering approach
MetadataShow full metadata
The paper introduces the knowledge engineering (KE) approach for the modeling and the discovery of new knowledge in bioinformatics. This approach extends the machine learning approach with various rule extraction and other knowledge representation procedures. Examples of the KE approach, and especially of one of the recently developed techniques - evolving connectionist systems (ECOS), to challenging problems in bioinformatics are given, that include: DNA sequence analysis, microarray gene expression profiling, protein structure prediction, finding gene regulatory networks, medical prognostic systems, computational neurogenetic modeling.
