Sajeev Batra asks:
I noticed that in the 2nd Albany Conf on Computational Biology David Waltz is
giving a talk on protein secondary structure prediction using hybrid
representations. Does anyone know more about this? I am relatively new in
this area. What exactly is a hybrid representation?
I think they call it a "Hybrid System," rather than representation. Zhang,
Mesirov & Waltz use a collection of different representations and inference
methods, and then combine all of their outputs with a neural network, something
like GRAIL does for gene finding. There is an article in a recent Journal of
Molecular Biology: JMB (1992) 225: 1049-1063.
