Proteins are fundamental components of all living cells and the protein-protein interaction plays an important role in vital movement. This paper briefly introduced the original Resonant Recognition Model (RRM), and then modified it by using the wavelet transform to acquire the Modified Resonant Recognition Model (MRRM). The key characteristic of the new model is that it can predict directly the protein-protein interaction from the primary sequence, and the MRRM is more suitable than the RRM for this prediction. The results of numerical experiments show that the MRRM is effective for predicting the protein-protein interaction.
