Term Definition
SVM

Support Vector Machine, high performance machine learning technique that has been used to improve classification accuracy in biological applications such as gene prediction, detection of protein family members, RNA and DNA binding proteins and the functional classification of gene expression data. SVMs can solve non-linear classification problems by learning an optimally separating hyperplane in a higher-dimensional feature space. By use of non-linear kernel functions such as a Gaussian kernel, complex and non-linear decision functions can be realised.
