    Improving ChIP-seq peak-calling for functional co-regulator binding by integrating multiple sources of biological information

    Chromatin immunoprecipitation coupled with massively parallel sequencing (ChIP-seq) is increasingly being applied to study genome-wide binding sites of transcription factors. There is an increasing interest in...

    Quantification and clustering of phenotypic screening data using time-series analysis for chemotherapy of schistosomiasis

    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...

    Learning generative models of molecular dynamics

    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-...

    Identifying regulational alterations in gene regulatory networks by state space representation of vector autoregressive models and variational annealing

    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...

    A mixture framework for inferring ancestral gene orders

    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...

    A model for biased fractionation after whole genome duplication

    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...

    Construction and analysis of a plant non-specific lipid transfer protein database (nsLTPDB)

    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...

    miRNA arm selection and isomiR distribution in gastric cancer

    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...
