  1. Research

    Association of tissue lineage and gene expression: conservatively and differentially expressed genes define common and special functions of tissues

    Embryogenesis is the process by which the embryo is formed, develops, and establishes developmental hierarchies of tissues. The recent advance in microarray technology made it possible to investigate the tissu...

    TF-centered downstream gene set enrichment analysis: Inference of causal regulators by integrating TF-DNA interactions and protein post-translational modifications information

    Inference of causal regulators responsible for gene expression changes under different conditions is of great importance but remains rather challenging. To date, most approaches use direct binding targets of t...

    RecMotif: a novel fast algorithm for weak motif discovery

    Weak motif discovery in DNA sequences is an important but unresolved problem in computational biology. Previous algorithms that aimed to solve the problem usually require a large amount of memory or execution ...

    Accurate HLA type inference using a weighted similarity graph

    The human leukocyte antigen system (HLA) contains many highly variable genes. HLA genes play an important role in the human immune system, and HLA gene matching is crucial for the success of human organ transp...

    The utility of mass spectrometry-based proteomic data for validation of novel alternative splice forms reconstructed from RNA-Seq data: a preliminary assessment

    Most mass spectrometry (MS) based proteomic studies depend on searching acquired tandem mass (MS/MS) spectra against databases of known protein sequences. In these experiments, however, a large number of high ...
