—In January, 2014, the outbreak of H5N8 in South
Korea started in one duck farm. The representative outbreak of
H5N8 is to turkey 1983 Ireland and to duck 2010 China.
Obviously, people were concerned about whether this Influenza
A virus is highly pathogenic or human transmissible. In this
research to identify the probability of H5N8’s pathogenic rate,
we will investigate its chance to have Cytokine Storm, a deadly
attribute of Influenza A virus, by seeking similarity in
glycoprotein amino acid sequence with H5N1, which has the
same hemagglutinin subtype, using Support Vector Machine. In
addition, to identify H5N8’s human transmissible possibility, we
will compare the its year-on-year glycoprotein amino acid
mutating trend with H7N9, which was previously known not to
be transmissible to human but mutated to infect human, using
—Apriori algorithm, H5N8, H5N1, H7N9,
influenza A Virus, support vector machine.
