  1. Proceedings

    Locating tandem repeats in weighted sequences in proteins

    A weighted biological sequence is a string in which a set of characters may appear at each position with respective probabilities of occurrence. We attempt to locate all the tandem repeats in a weighted sequen...

    Robust PCA based method for discovering differentially expressed genes

    How to identify a set of genes that are relevant to a key biological process is an important issue in current molecular biology. In this paper, we propose a novel method to discover differentially expressed ge...

    Protein localization prediction using random walks on graphs

    Understanding the localization of proteins in cells is vital to characterizing their functions and possible interactions. As a result, identifying the (sub)cellular compartment within which a protein is locate...

    Distinct position-specific sequence features of hexa-peptides that form amyloid-fibrils: application to discriminate between amyloid fibril and amorphous β-aggregate forming peptide sequences

    Comparison of short peptides which form amyloid-fibrils with their homologues that may form amorphous β-aggregates but not fibrils, can aid development of novel amyloid-containing nanomaterials with well defin...

    Biomimicry of quorum sensing using bacterial lifecycle model

    Recent microbiologic studies have shown that quorum sensing mechanisms, which serve as one of the fundamental requirements for bacterial survival, exist widely in bacterial intra- and inter-species cell-cell c...

    Prediction of protein-protein interactions from amino acid sequences with ensemble extreme learning machines and principal component analysis

    Protein-protein interactions (PPIs) play crucial roles in the execution of various cellular processes and form the basis of biological mechanisms. Although large amount of PPIs data for different species has b...
