Predicting membrane protein type is a meaningful task because this kind of information is very useful to explain the function of membrane proteins. Due to the explosion of new protein sequences discovered, it is highly desired to develop efficient computation tools for quickly and accurately predicting the membrane type for a given protein sequence. Even though several membrane predictors have been developed, they can only deal with the membrane proteins which belong to the single membrane type. The fact is that there are membrane proteins belonging to two or more than two types. To solve this problem, a system for predicting membrane protein sequences with single or multiple types is proposed. Pseudo–amino acid composition, which has proven to be a very efficient tool in representing protein sequences, and a multilabel KNN algorithm are used to compose this prediction engine. The results of this initial study are encouraging.
