Protein Function Prediction
Eamon Byrne, Dustin Nguyen, Ness Mayker, Salma Abdelbaky
Predict the biological function of proteins based upon their amino acid sequence and other publicly available data.
This project would double as a team submission to the Fifth Critical Assessment of Functional Annotation (CAFA 5) competition - similar to the Critical Assessment of Structure Prediction (CASP 14) competition in which AlphaFold2 gained prominence (in 2021).
Here is the Kaggle competition (submissions are open for the next 3 months): https://www.kaggle.com/competitions/cafa-5-protein-function-prediction/
(1st prize is $15,000... lol)
