Table 2 The workflow of window size selection and parameter optimization.

From: Predicting RNA-binding sites of proteins using support vector machines and evolutionary information

  Sliding window size (w) C and γ Smoothing window size (ws) Weight parameter (w1 and w-1)
Step 1 3 ≤ w ≤ 41 (step = 2) Default - Default ratio
Step 2 Optimized w from step 1 -3 ≤ log2C ≤ 12 (step = 1)   Default ratio
   -3 ≤ log2γ ≤ -15 (step = -1)   
Step 3 Optimized w from step 1 Optimized C and γ from step 2 3 ≤ ws ≤ 11 (step = 2) Default ratio
Step 4 Optimized w from step 1 Optimized C and γ from step 2 Optimized ws from step 3 1 ≤ w1 ≤ 8# (step = 1), w-1 = 1
Final Optimized w from step 1 Optimized C and γ from step 2 Optimized ws from step 3 Optimized w1 and w-1 from step4
