Abstract: It is a hot research field to design an effective method for protein function prediction by integrating heterogeneous biological data. In this work, we proposed a novel non-Negative Matrix Factorisation-based method, namely PONMF-S to learn protein and GO features from different biological networks for protein function prediction. Additionally, we extend PONMF-S to other versions by considering the function influence of proteins' neighbours and GO terms' neighbours. We apply our methods and two state-of-the-art methods (UBiRW and NMFGO) to predict functions for proteins of Saccharomyces cerevisiae and Homo sapiens. The prediction results show that PONMF-S outperforms the other two existing methods when randomly removing a part of known function information. When predicting functions for the proteins that have not any known ahead functional information, PONMF-S improves the prediction performance of NMFGO significantly and is comparable with UBiRW. Besides, the extended version of PONMF-S can even outperform UBiRW in most function categories.
