  1. Research

    Evolutionary conservation of DNA-contact residues in DNA-binding domains

    DNA-binding proteins are of utmost importance to gene regulation. The identification of DNA-binding domains is useful for understanding the regulation mechanisms of DNA-binding proteins. In this study, we prop...

    Comparative analyses of bidirectional promoters in vertebrates

    Orthologous genes with deep phylogenetic histories are likely to retain similar regulatory features. In this report we utilize orthology assignments for pairs of genes co-regulated by bidirectional promoters t...

    An improved string composition method for sequence comparison

    Historically, two categories of computational algorithms (alignment-based and alignment-free) have been applied to sequence comparison–one of the most fundamental issues in bioinformatics. Multiple sequence al...
