    Citation: BMC Bioinformatics 2006 7(Suppl 4):S1
  2. Haplotype analysis has gained increasing attention in the context of association studies of disease genes and drug responsivities over the last years. The potential use of haplotypes has led to the initiation ...

    Authors: Qiangfeng Zhang, Yuzhong Zhao, Guoliang Chen and Yun Xu
    Citation: BMC Bioinformatics 2006 7(Suppl 4):S5
  3. Structure matching plays an important part in understanding the functional role of biological structures. Bioinformatics assists in this effort by reformulating this process into a problem of finding a maximum...

    Authors: Xiuzhen Huang, Jing Lai and Steven F Jennings
    Citation: BMC Bioinformatics 2006 7(Suppl 4):S6
  4. Microarray techniques have revolutionized genomic research by making it possible to monitor the expression of thousands of genes in parallel. As the amount of microarray data being produced is increasing at an...
