  2. Super-enhancers or stretch enhancers are clusters of active enhancers that often coordinate cell-type specific gene regulation during development and differentiation. In addition, the enrichment of disease-ass...

    Authors: Jayoung Ryu, Hyunwoong Kim, Dongchan Yang, Andrew J. Lee and Inkyung Jung
    Citation: BMC Bioinformatics 2019 20(Suppl 3):127
  3. The inference of splicing orthology relationships between gene transcripts is a basic step for the prediction of transcripts and the annotation of gene structures in genomes. The splicing structure of a sequen...
