  1. Research

    Genome-wide structural modelling of TCR-pMHC interactions

    The adaptive immune response is antigen-specific and triggered by pathogen recognition through T cells. Although the interactions and mechanisms of TCR-peptide-MHC (TCR-pMHC) have been studied over three decad...

    Coffee component hydroxyl hydroquinone (HHQ) as a putative ligand for PPAR gamma and implications in breast cancer

    Coffee contains several compounds that have the potential to influence breast cancer risk and survival. However, epidemiologic data on the relation between coffee compounds and breast cancer survival are spars...

    Analysis of schizophrenia and hepatocellular carcinoma genetic network with corresponding modularity and pathways: novel insights to the immune system

    Schizophrenic patients show lower incidences of cancer, implicating schizophrenia may be a protective factor against cancer. To study the genetic correlation between the two diseases, a specific PPI network wa...

    Co-modulated behavior and effects of differentially expressed miRNA in colorectal cancer

    MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are short noncoding RNAs (approximately 22 nucleotides in length) that play important roles in colorectal cancer (CRC) progression through silencing gene expression. Numerous dysregulated miRNA...

  5. Research

    Simple re-instantiation of small databases using cloud computing

    Small bioinformatics databases, unlike institutionally funded large databases, are vulnerable to discontinuation and many reported in publications are no longer accessible. This leads to irreproducible scienti...
