CELLO: A subCELlular LOcalization predictor
CELLO is a multi-class SVM classification system. CELLO uses 4 types of sequence coding schemes: the amino acid composition, the di-peptide composition, the partitioned amino acid composition and the sequence composition based on the physico-chemical properties of amino acids. We combine votes from these classifiers and use the jury votes to determine the final assignment. The general architecture of our predictive system is shown below.
