Drought resistant gene plays important role in molecular breeding while little is known for its genetic mechanism. By extracting the clustered amino acids features, crucial numerical features are inferred for the resistance property of the given gene. Support vector machine algorithm is used to testify the reliability of feature extraction method. After carefully parameters choosing, the accuracy of the predictor achieves 79.36% in Jack-knife test, and the Mathews correlation coefficient achieves 0.5636.
