    Towards structured output prediction of enzyme function

    In this paper we describe work in progress in developing kernel methods for enzyme function prediction. Our focus is in developing so called structured output prediction methods, where the enzymatic reaction i...

    Towards a semi-automatic functional annotation tool based on decision-tree techniques

    Due to the continuous improvements of high throughput technologies and experimental procedures, the number of sequenced genomes is increasing exponentially. Ultimately, the task of annotating these data relies...

    Machine learning techniques to identify putative genes involved in nitrogen catabolite repression in the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae

    Nitrogen is an essential nutrient for all life forms. Like most unicellular organisms, the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae transports and catabolizes good nitrogen sources in preference to poor ones. Nitrogen cata...

    Gene-based bin analysis of genome-wide association studies

    With the improvement of genotyping technologies and the exponentially growing number of available markers, case-control genome-wide association studies promise to be a key tool for investigation of complex dis...
