Prof. Predrag Radivojac, Indiana University will deliver a talk titled State-of-the-art in protein function prediction. His summary of the talk: In this talk I will first provide the significance and computational problem formulation of protein function prediction. I will then present details of the first Critical Assessment of Functional Annotation (CAFA) experiment, where we evaluated state-of-the-art in the field. We provided evidence that modern methods significantly outperform simple BLAST alignments but that there is significant need and room for improvement. I will lay out possible avenues for improvements and accuracy assessment of function prediction proposed by my research group. Finally, I will briefly discuss the CAFA 2013-2014 challenge whose start is anticipated for Summer 2013.
