Semi-Supervised Multi-Task Learning for Predicting Interactions between HIV-1 and Human Proteins
Contact Author: Yanjun Qi (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Validation of Predictions:
á The top ranked predicted HIV-Human interaction pairs (cutoff score -1.5) from model EMBO.
á We compared the top ranked predicted HIV-Human PPI pairs with the partial positive pairs from GROUP1+GROUP2
á We also compared those human genes in the top ranked predicted HIV-Human PPI pairs to two extra human gene list
á 282 human genes that have been reported in the siRNA screen to have an effect on HIV-1 infection upon silencing 
á 316 human proteins highjacked by HIV-1 in its virion 
á 1049 human genes that have been reported by one of the siRNA functional screens published recently [1,2,3,4].
á All these three human gene lists used in validations could be downloaded here !
