    Citation: BMC Genomics 2012 13(Suppl 1):S3
  3. Neglected tropical diseases, especially those caused by helminths, constitute some of the most common infections of the world's poorest people. Development of techniques for automated, high-throughput drug scr...

    Authors: Hyokyeong Lee, Asher Moody-Davis, Utsab Saha, Brian M Suzuki, Daniel Asarnow, Steven Chen, Michelle Arkin, Conor R Caffrey and Rahul Singh
    Citation: BMC Genomics 2012 13(Suppl 1):S4
  4. We introduce three algorithms for learning generative models of molecular structures from molecular dynamics simulations. The first algorithm learns a Bayesian-optimal undirected probabilistic model over user-...

    Authors: Narges Sharif Razavian, Hetunandan Kamisetty and Christopher J Langmead
    Citation: BMC Genomics 2012 13(Suppl 1):S5
  5. In the analysis of effects by cell treatment such as drug dosing, identifying changes on gene network structures between normal and treated cells is a key task. A possible way for identifying the changes is to...

    Citation: BMC Genomics 2012 13(Suppl 1):S6
  6. Inferring gene orders of ancestral genomes has the potential to provide detailed information about the recent evolution of species descended from them. Current popular tools to infer ancestral genome data (suc...

    Authors: Yiwei Zhang, Fei Hu and Jijun Tang
    Citation: BMC Genomics 2012 13(Suppl 1):S7
  7. Paralog reduction, the loss of duplicate genes after whole genome duplication (WGD) is a pervasive process. Whether this loss proceeds gene by gene or through deletion of multi-gene DNA segments is controversi...

    Authors: David Sankoff, Chunfang Zheng and Baoyong Wang
    Citation: BMC Genomics 2012 13(Suppl 1):S8
  8. Plant n on-s pecific l ipid t ransfer p roteins (nsLTPs) are small and basic proteins. Recently, nsLTPs have been reported involved in many physiological functions such as mediating phospholipid transfer, partici...

    Citation: BMC Genomics 2012 13(Suppl 1):S9
  9. Bayesian networks (BNs) have been widely used to estimate gene regulatory networks. Many BN methods have been developed to estimate networks from microarray data. However, two serious problems reduce the effec...

    Authors: Yukito Watanabe, Shigeto Seno, Yoichi Takenaka and Hideo Matsuda
    Citation: BMC Genomics 2012 13(Suppl 1):S12
  10. MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are small non-protein-coding RNAs. miRNA genes need several biogenesis steps to form function miRNAs. However, the precise mechanism and biology involved in the mature miRNA molecules are no...
