    Citation: BMC Bioinformatics 2007 8(Suppl 7):S8
  7. Nanopore detection is based on observations of the ionic current threading a single, highly stable, nanometer-scale channel. The dimensions are such that small biomolecules and biopolymers (like DNA and peptid...

    Citation: BMC Bioinformatics 2007 8(Suppl 7):S9
  8. Synthetic transcription factors (STFs) promise to offer a powerful new therapeutic against Cancer, AIDS, and genetic disease. Currently, 10% of drugs are of this type, including salicylate and tamoxifen. STFs ...

    Citation: BMC Bioinformatics 2007 8(Suppl 7):S10
  9. Aptamers are nucleic acids selected for their ability to bind to molecules of interest and may provide the basis for a whole new class of medicines. If the aptamer is simply a dsDNA molecule with a ssDNA overh...

    Citation: BMC Bioinformatics 2007 8(Suppl 7):S11
  10. A nanopore detector has a nanometer-scale trans-membrane channel across which a potential difference is established, resulting in an ionic current through the channel in the pA-nA range. A distinctive channel ...

    Authors: Matthew Landry and Stephen Winters-Hilt
    Citation: BMC Bioinformatics 2007 8(Suppl 7):S12
  11. The regulation of gene expression is achieved through gene regulatory networks (GRNs) in which collections of genes interact with one another and other substances in a cell. In order to understand the underlyi...

    Citation: BMC Bioinformatics 2007 8(Suppl 7):S16
  14. Support Vector Machines (SVMs) provide a powerful method for classification (supervised learning). Use of SVMs for clustering (unsupervised learning) is now being considered in a number of different ways.

    Authors: Stephen Winters-Hilt and Sam Merat
    Citation: BMC Bioinformatics 2007 8(Suppl 7):S18
  15. Hidden Markov Models (HMMs) provide an excellent means for structure identification and feature extraction on stochastic sequential data. An HMM-with-Duration (HMMwD) is an HMM that can also exactly model the ...
