  1. Proceedings

    Systematic classification of non-coding RNAs by epigenomic similarity

    Even though only 1.5% of the human genome is translated into proteins, recent reports indicate that most of it is transcribed into non-coding RNAs (ncRNAs), which are becoming the subject of increased scientif...

  2. Proceedings

    Differential reconstructed gene interaction networks for deriving toxicity threshold in chemical risk assessment

    Pathway alterations reflected as changes in gene expression regulation and gene interaction can result from cellular exposure to toxicants. Such information is often used to elucidate toxicological modes of ac...

  3. Proceedings

    Towards the integration, annotation and association of historical microarray experiments with RNA-seq

    Transcriptome analysis by microarrays has produced important advances in biomedicine. For instance in multiple myeloma (MM), microarray approaches led to the development of an effective disease subtyping via c...

  4. Proceedings

    Homology modeling, molecular docking, and molecular dynamics simulations elucidated α-fetoprotein binding modes

    An important mechanism of endocrine activity is chemicals entering target cells via transport proteins and then interacting with hormone receptors such as the estrogen receptor (ER). α-Fetoprotein (AFP) is a m...

    Drug activity prediction using multiple-instance learning via joint instance and feature selection

    In drug discovery and development, it is crucial to determine which conformers (instances) of a given molecule are responsible for its observed biological activity and at the same time to recognize the most re...
