propythia - automated platform for the classification of peptides/proteins using machine learning

Project description

|License| |PyPI version| |RTD version|


ProPythia (platform for the classification of peptides/proteins using machine and deep learning) is a Python generic modular semi-automated platform containing functions for the classification of proteins based on their physicochemical properties using ML and DL. ProPythia facilitates the major tasks of ML and includes modules to read and alter sequences, calculate several types of protein descriptors, pre-process datasets, execute feature selection and dimensionality reduction, visualization of t-SNE and UMAP, perform clustering, train and optimize ML and DL models and make predictions with different algorithms. ProPythia has an adaptable modular architecture being a versatile and easy-to-use tool to apply ML/DL analysis over protein sequences.

It was tested on the classification of membrane active antimicrobial peptides and enzymes, available in folder examples.
