    CoNVEX: copy number variation estimation in exome sequencing data using HMM

    One of the main types of genetic variations in cancer is Copy Number Variations (CNV). Whole exome sequenicng (WES) is a popular alternative to whole genome sequencing (WGS) to study disease specific genomic v...

    Widespread evidence of viral miRNAs targeting host pathways

    MicroRNAs (miRNA) are regulatory genes that target and repress other RNA molecules via sequence-specific binding. Several biological processes are regulated across many organisms by evolutionarily conserved mi...

    An enhanced computational platform for investigating the roles of regulatory RNA and for identifying functional RNA motifs

    Functional RNA molecules participate in numerous biological processes, ranging from gene regulation to protein synthesis. Analysis of functional RNA motifs and elements in RNA sequences can obtain useful infor...

    Discovery and analysis of consistent active sub-networks in cancers

    Gene expression profiles can show significant changes when genetically diseased cells are compared with non-diseased cells. Biological networks are often used to identify active subnetworks (ASNs) of the diseases...

    Building Markov state models with solvent dynamics

    Markov state models have been widely used to study conformational changes of biological macromolecules. These models are built from short timescale simulations and then propagated to extract long timescale dyn...

    A multispecies polyadenylation site model

    Polyadenylation is present in all three domains of life, making it the most conserved post-transcriptional process compared with splicing and 5'-capping. Even though most mammalian poly(A) sites contain a high...
