ProteinDescriptors: Generates Various Protein Descriptors for Machine Learning Algorithms

An implementation of protein descriptors in R. These descriptors combine the advantages of being fixed length and including partial sequential effect: Various length of protein sequences are described with fixed length vectors that are suitable for machine learning algorithms, and still includes partial sequential effect.
