  1. Proceedings

    Learning pair-wise gene functional similarity by multiplex gene expression maps

    The relationships between the gene functional similarity and gene expression profile, and between gene function annotation and gene sequence have been studied extensively. However, not much work has considered...

  2. Proceedings

    Metabolic network alignment in large scale by network compression

    Metabolic network alignment is a system scale comparative analysis that discovers important similarities and differences across different metabolisms and organisms. Although the problem of aligning metabolic n...

  3. Proceedings

    Algorithms for optimizing cross-overs in DNA shuffling

    DNA shuffling generates combinatorial libraries of chimeric genes by stochastically recombining parent genes. The resulting libraries are subjected to large-scale genetic selection or screening to identify tho...

  4. Proceedings

    Ab initio detection of fuzzy amino acid tandem repeats in protein sequences

    Tandem repetitions within protein amino acid sequences often correspond to regular secondary structures and form multi-repeat 3D assemblies of varied size and function. Developing internal repetitions is one o...
