  1. Proceedings

    A computational approach for identifying microRNA-target interactions using high-throughput CLIP and PAR-CLIP sequencing

    MicroRNAs (miRNAs) play a critical role in down-regulating gene expression. By coupling with Argonaute family proteins, miRNAs bind to target sites on mRNAs and employ translational repression. A large amount ...

  2. Proceedings

    Expanding the boundaries of local similarity analysis

    Pairwise comparison of time series data for both local and time-lagged relationships is a computationally challenging problem relevant to many fields of inquiry. The Local Similarity Analysis (LSA) statistic i...
