    A Markov blanket-based method for detecting causal SNPs in GWAS

    Detecting epistatic interactions associated with complex and common diseases can help to improve prevention, diagnosis and treatment of these diseases. With the development of genome-wide association studies (...

    Towards reliable isoform quantification using RNA-SEQ data

    In eukaryotes, alternative splicing often generates multiple splice variants from a single gene. Here weexplore the use of RNA sequencing (RNA-Seq) datasets to address the isoform quantification problem. Given...

  3. Proceedings

    Detection of gene orthology from gene co-expression and protein interaction networks

    Ortholog detection methods present a powerful approach for finding genes that participate in similar biological processes across different organisms, extending our understanding of interactions between genes a...

  4. Proceedings

    Bacillus anthracis genome organization in light of whole transcriptome sequencing

    Emerging knowledge of whole prokaryotic transcriptomes could validate a number of theoretical concepts introduced in the early days of genomics. What are the rules connecting gene expression levels with sequen...
