The use of supervised Machine Learning (ML) to enhance Intrusion Detection Systems (IDS) has been the subject of significant research. Supervised ML is based upon learning by example, demanding significant volumes of representative instances for effective training and the need to retrain the model for every unseen cyber-attack class. However, retra...

Protein is considered the backbone of any human being. Protein is responsible for many functionalities in the human body, these functionalities differ according to the way protein amino acids (amino acids are the raw elements of protein) bond together. Then the protein forms its secondary,tertiary and quaternary structures from the amino acid struc...
