  1. Proceedings

    IP6K gene identification in plant genomes by tag searching

    Plants have played a special role in inositol polyphosphate (IP) research since in plant seeds was discovered the first IP, the fully phosphorylated inositol ring of phytic acid (IP6). It is now known that phy...

    Local structural alignment of RNA with affine gap model

    Predicting new non-coding RNAs (ncRNAs) of a family can be done by aligning the potential candidate with a member of the family with known sequence and secondary structure. Existing tools either only consider ...

    Nonlinear gene cluster analysis with labeling for microarray gene expression data in organ development

    The gene networks underlying closure of the optic fissure during vertebrate eye development are not well-understood. We use a novel clustering method based on nonlinear dimension reduction with data labeling t...

    Mining the TRAF6/p62 interactome for a selective ubiquitination motif

    A new approach is described here to predict ubiquitinated substrates of the E3 ubiquitin ligase, TRAF6, which takes into account its interaction with the scaffold protein SQSTM1/p62. A novel TRAF6 ubiquitinati...

    Haplotype inference in general pedigrees with two sites

    Genetic disease studies investigate relationships between changes in chromosomes and genetic diseases. Single haplotypes provide useful information for these studies but extracting single haplotypes directly b...

    Enhancing genome assemblies by integrating non-sequence based data

    Many genome projects were underway before the advent of high-throughput sequencing and have thus been supported by a wealth of genome information from other technologies. Such information frequently takes the ...

    Managing and querying gene expression data using Curray

    In principle, gene expression data can be viewed as providing just the three-valued expression profiles of target biological elements relative to an experiment at hand. Although complicated, gathering expressi...

    Inferring ethnicity from mitochondrial DNA sequence

    The assignment of DNA samples to coarse population groups can be a useful but difficult task. One such example is the inference of coarse ethnic groupings for forensic applications. Ethnicity plays an importan...
