At UniProt, ProtNLM is already assisting scientists by connecting protein sequences with descriptions of protein traits in the English language
Figure by the author. Note PRTEIN SEQVENCE is not a typo but just reflects the real possible names of the amino acids (O and U don’t exist).
In a nutshell:- ProtNLM is a protein natural language model that is used by UniProt’s Automatic Annotation pipeline for protein annotation.- The model is trained to predict a protein’s name from its amino acid sequence and is based on a sequence-to-sequence model.- ProtNLM can accurately predict descriptions of protein function directly from a protein’s amino acid sequence.- Part of the model was trained to correlate between amino acid sequences obtained from the UniProt database… Read the full blog for free on Medium.
