  1. Kinase over-expression and activation as a consequence of gene amplification or gene fusion events is a well-known mechanism of tumorigenesis. The search for novel rearrangements of kinases or other druggable ...

    Authors: Angelo Nuzzo, Giovanni Carapezza, Sebastiano Di Bella, Alfredo Pulvirenti, Antonella Isacchi and Roberta Bosotti
    Citation: BMC Bioinformatics 2016 17(Suppl 12):340
  2. Amplicon-based targeted resequencing is a commonly adopted solution for next-generation sequencing applications focused on specific genomic regions. The reliability of such approaches rests on the high specifi...

    Authors: Susanna Zucca, Margherita Villaraggia, Stella Gagliardi, Gaetano Salvatore Grieco, Marialuisa Valente, Cristina Cereda and Paolo Magni
    Citation: BMC Bioinformatics 2016 17(Suppl 12):339
  3. Detecting somatic mutations in whole exome sequencing data of cancer samples has become a popular approach for profiling cancer development, progression and chemotherapy resistance. Several studies have propos...

    Authors: Ítalo Faria do Valle, Enrico Giampieri, Giorgia Simonetti, Antonella Padella, Marco Manfrini, Anna Ferrari, Cristina Papayannidis, Isabella Zironi, Marianna Garonzi, Simona Bernardi, Massimo Delledonne, Giovanni Martinelli, Daniel Remondini and Gastone Castellani
    Citation: BMC Bioinformatics 2016 17(Suppl 12):341
  4. Biological networks play an increasingly important role in the exploration of functional modularity and cellular organization at a systemic level. Quite often the first tools used to analyze these networks are cl...

    Authors: Marco Pellegrini, Miriam Baglioni and Filippo Geraci
    Citation: BMC Bioinformatics 2016 17(Suppl 12):372
  5. During library construction polymerase chain reaction is used to enrich the DNA before sequencing. Typically, this process generates duplicate read sequences. Removal of these artifacts is mandatory, as they c...

    Authors: Andrea Manconi, Marco Moscatelli, Giuliano Armano, Matteo Gnocchi, Alessandro Orro and Luciano Milanesi
    Citation: BMC Bioinformatics 2016 17(Suppl 12):346
  6. The abundance of biological data characterizing the genomics era is contributing to a comprehensive understanding of human mitochondrial genetics. Nevertheless, many aspects are still unclear, specifically abo...

    Authors: Maria Angela Diroma, Paolo Lubisco and Marcella Attimonelli
    Citation: BMC Bioinformatics 2016 17(Suppl 12):338
  7. More than fifty percent of neuroblastoma (NB) patients with adverse prognosis do not benefit from treatment making the identification of new potential targets mandatory. Hypoxia is a condition of low oxygen te...

    Authors: Davide Cangelosi, Simone Pelassa, Martina Morini, Massimo Conte, Maria Carla Bosco, Alessandra Eva, Angela Rita Sementa and Luigi Varesio
    Citation: BMC Bioinformatics 2016 17(Suppl 12):347
  8. When the reads obtained from high-throughput RNA sequencing are mapped against a reference database, a significant proportion of them - known as multireads - can map to more than one reference sequence. These ...

    Authors: Arianna Consiglio, Corrado Mencar, Giorgio Grillo, Flaviana Marzano, Mariano Francesco Caratozzolo and Sabino Liuni
    Citation: BMC Bioinformatics 2016 17(Suppl 12):345
  9. An important challenge in cancer biology is to understand the complex aspects of the disease. It is increasingly evident that genes are not isolated from each other and the comprehension of how different genes...

    Authors: Claudia Cava, Antonio Colaprico, Gloria Bertoli, Gianluca Bontempi, Giancarlo Mauri and Isabella Castiglioni
    Citation: BMC Bioinformatics 2016 17(Suppl 12):348
  10. One of the most challenging issue in the variant calling process is handling the resulting data, and filtering the genes retaining only the ones strictly related to the topic of interest. Several tools permit ...
