  1. Finding the smallest sequence of operations to transform one genome into another is an important problem in comparative genomics. The breakpoint graph is a discrete structure that has proven to be effective in...

    Authors: Pedro Feijão, Fábio Viduani Martinez and Annelyse Thévenin
    Citation: BMC Bioinformatics 2015 16(Suppl 19):S1
  2. Dynamic programming algorithms provide exact solutions to many problems in computational biology, such as sequence alignment, RNA folding, hidden Markov models (HMMs), and scoring of phylogenetic trees. Struct...

    Authors: Christian Höner zu Siederdissen, Sonja J Prohaska and Peter F Stadler
    Citation: BMC Bioinformatics 2015 16(Suppl 19):S2
  3. Large-scale mutational events that occur when stretches of DNA sequence move throughout genomes are called genome rearrangements. In bacteria, inversions are one of the most frequently observed rearrangements....

    Authors: Christian Baudet, Ulisses Dias and Zanoni Dias
    Citation: BMC Bioinformatics 2015 16(Suppl 19):S3
  4. There exists a large number of rare and complex diseases that are neglected due to the difficulty in diagnosis and treatment. Being rare, they normally do not justify the costs of developing an especialized El...

    Authors: Alessandra C Faria-Campos, Lucas A Hanke, Paulo HS Batista, Vinicius Garcia and Sérgio VA Campos
    Citation: BMC Bioinformatics 2015 16(Suppl 19):S4
  5. The advent of rapid evolution on sequencing capacity of new genomes has evidenced the need for data analysis automation aiming at speeding up the genomic annotation process and reducing its cost. Given that on...

    Authors: Sávio G Carvalho, Renata Guerra-Sá and Luiz H de C Merschmann
    Citation: BMC Bioinformatics 2015 16(Suppl 19):S5
  6. The humoral immune system response is based on the interaction between antibodies and antigens for the clearance of pathogens and foreign molecules. The interaction between these proteins occurs at specific po...

    Authors: Edgar Ernesto Gonzalez Kozlova, Benjamin Thomas Viart, Ricardo Andrez Machado de Avila, Liza Figueredo Felicori and Carlos Chavez-Olortegui
    Citation: BMC Bioinformatics 2015 16(Suppl 19):S7
  7. Cytotoxicity assays have been used by researchers to screen for cytotoxicity in compound libraries. Researchers can either look for cytotoxic compounds or screen "hits" from initial high-throughput drug screen...

    Authors: Alessandra C Faria-Campos, Luciene B Balottin, Gianlucca Zuin, Vinicius Garcia, Paulo HS Batista, José M Granjeiro and Sérgio VA Campos
    Citation: BMC Bioinformatics 2015 16(Suppl 19):S8
  8. Complex diseases are characterized as being polygenic and multifactorial, so this poses a challenge regarding the search for genes related to them. With the advent of high-throughput technologies for genome se...

    Authors: Sérgio N Simões, David C Martins Jr, Carlos AB Pereira, Ronaldo F Hashimoto and Helena Brentani
    Citation: BMC Bioinformatics 2015 16(Suppl 19):S9
  9. The human immunodeficiency virus (HIV-1) is a retrovirus causing acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS), which has become a serious problem across the world and has no cure reported to date. Human immunodef...
