    Citation: BMC Bioinformatics 2008 9(Suppl 9):S10
  8. Relationships between entities such as genes, chemicals, metabolites, phenotypes and diseases in MEDLINE are often directional. That is, one may affect the other in a positive or negative manner. Detection of ...

    Authors: Cory B Giles and Jonathan D Wren
    Citation: BMC Bioinformatics 2008 9(Suppl 9):S11
  9. In this paper we present preliminary results stemming from a novel application of Markov Models and Support Vector Machines to splice site classification of Intron-Exon and Exon-Intron (5' and 3') splice sites...

    Citation: BMC Bioinformatics 2008 9(Suppl 9):S12
  10. Ionic current blockade signal processing, for use in nanopore detection, offers a promising new way to analyze single molecule properties with potential implications for DNA sequencing. The α-Hemolysin transmembr...

    Authors: Alexander Churbanov and Stephen Winters-Hilt
    Citation: BMC Bioinformatics 2008 9(Suppl 9):S13
  11. Over the past decade, many investigators have used sophisticated time series tools for the analysis of genomic sequences. Specifically, the correlation of the nucleotide chain has been studied by examining the...

    Citation: BMC Bioinformatics 2008 9(Suppl 9):S14
  12. Metabolomics, petroleum and biodiesel chemistry, biomarker discovery, and other fields which rely on high-resolution profiling of complex chemical mixtures generate datasets which contain millions of detector ...

    Authors: Minho Chae, Robert J Shmookler Reis and John J Thaden
    Citation: BMC Bioinformatics 2008 9(Suppl 9):S15
  13. Biological chemistry is very stereospecific. Nonetheless, the diastereotopic oxygen atoms of diphosphate-containing molecules in the Protein Data Bank (PDB) are often given names that do not uniquely distingui...

    Authors: Christopher A Bottoms and Dong Xu
    Citation: BMC Bioinformatics 2008 9(Suppl 9):S16
  14. Genome-wide association studies (GWAS) aim to identify genetic variants (usually single nucleotide polymorphisms [SNPs]) across the entire human genome that are associated with phenotypic traits such as diseas...
