    Score regularization for peptide identification

    Peptide identification from tandem mass spectrometry (MS/MS) data is one of the most important problems in computational proteomics. This technique relies heavily on the accurate assessment of the quality of p...

    The G protein-coupled receptors in the pufferfish Takifugu rubripes

    Guanine protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) constitute a eukaryotic transmembrane protein family and function as “molecular switches” in the second messenger cascades and are found in all organisms between yeast...

    On the PATHGROUPS approach to rapid small phylogeny

    We present a data structure enabling rapid heuristic solution to the ancestral genome reconstruction problem for given phylogenies under genomic rearrangement metrics. The efficiency of the greedy algorithm is...

    A minimal descriptor of an ancestral recombinations graph

    Ancestral Recombinations Graph (ARG) is a phylogenetic structure that encodes both duplication events, such as mutations, as well as genetic exchange events, such as recombinations: this captures the (genetic)...

    UMARS: Un-MAppable Reads Solution

    Un-MAppable Reads Solution (UMARS) is a user-friendly web service focusing on retrieving valuable information from sequence reads that cannot be mapped back to reference genomes. Recently, next-generation sequ...

    Gene-gene interaction filtering with ensemble of filters

    Complex diseases are commonly caused by multiple genes and their interactions with each other. Genome-wide association (GWA) studies provide us the opportunity to capture those disease associated genes and gen...

    A clique-based method for the edit distance between unordered trees and its application to analysis of glycan structures

    Measuring similarities between tree structured data is important for analysis of RNA secondary structures, phylogenetic trees, glycan structures, and vascular trees. The edit distance is one of the most widely...

    An ILP solution for the gene duplication problem

    The gene duplication (GD) problem seeks a species tree that implies the fewest gene duplication events across a given collection of gene trees. Solving this problem makes it possible to use large gene families...

    A genetic algorithm-based boolean delay model of intracellular signal transduction in inflammation

    Signal transduction is the major mechanism through which cells transmit external stimuli to evoke intracellular biochemical responses. Understanding relationship between external stimuli and corresponding cell...
