In this paper, a method is presented for classifying snake toxins into neurotoxins, cytotoxins or cardiotoxins, using a four-stage neural network. A training phase was used to teach the network to recognize the type of toxin based on the number of amino acid residues between the disulphide bridges, on a sample set of 139 snake toxins. When the trained network was used to classify a set of 239 toxins, the system achieved an accuracy of 74%.
