    Efficient motif finding algorithms for large-alphabet inputs

    We consider the problem of identifying motifs, recurring or conserved patterns, in the biological sequence data sets. To solve this task, we present a new deterministic algorithm for finding patterns that are ...

    Graphical models for inferring single molecule dynamics

    The recent explosion of experimental techniques in single molecule biophysics has generated a variety of novel time series data requiring equally novel computational tools for analysis and inference. This arti...

    Exploiting physico-chemical properties in string kernels

    String kernels are commonly used for the classification of biological sequences, nucleotide as well as amino acid sequences. Although string kernels are already very powerful, when it comes to amino acids they...
