  1. Proceedings

    Relationship between amino acid properties and functional parameters in olfactory receptors and discrimination of mutants with enhanced specificity

    Olfactory receptors are key components in signal transduction. Mutations in olfactory receptors alter the odor response, which is a fundamental response of organisms to their immediate environment. Understandi...

  6. Proceedings

    Pattern-driven neighborhood search for biclustering of microarray data

    Biclustering aims at finding subgroups of genes that show highly correlated behaviors across a subgroup of conditions. Biclustering is a very useful tool for mining microarray data and has various practical ap...
