  • Building a pipeline to solicit expert knowledge from the community to aid
           gene summary curation

    • Authors: Antonazzo G; Urbano J, Marygold S, et al.
      Abstract: AbstractBrief summaries describing the function of each gene’s product(s) are of great value to the research community, especially when interpreting genome-wide studies that reveal changes to hundreds of genes. However, manually writing such summaries, even for a single species, is a daunting task; for example, the Drosophila melanogaster genome contains almost 14 000 protein-coding genes. One solution is to use computational methods to generate summaries, but this often fails to capture the key functions or express them eloquently. Here, we describe how we solicited help from the research community to generate manually written summaries of D. melanogaster gene function. Based on the data within the FlyBase database, we developed a computational pipeline to identify researchers who have worked extensively on each gene. We e-mailed these researchers to ask them to draft a brief summary of the main function(s) of the gene’s product, which we edited for consistency to produce a ‘gene snapshot’. This approach yielded 1800 gene snapshot submissions within a 3-month period. We discuss the general utility of this strategy for other databases that capture data from the research literature.Database URL: https://flybase.org/

  • PCaLiStDB: a lifestyle database for precision prevention of prostate
           cancer

    • Authors: Chen Y; Liu X, Yu Y, et al.
      Abstract: AbstractThe interaction between genes, lifestyles and environmental factors makes the genesis and progress of prostate cancer (PCa) very heterogeneous. Positive lifestyle is important to the prevention and controlling of PCa. To investigate the relationship between PCa and lifestyle at systems level, we established a PCa related lifestyle database (PCaLiStDB) and collected the PCa-related lifestyles including foods, nutrients, life habits and social and environmental factors as well as associated genes and physiological and biochemical indexes together with the disease phenotypes and drugs. Data format standardization was implemented for the future Lifestyle-Wide Association Studies of PCa (PCa_LWAS). Currently, 2290 single-factor lifestyles and 856 joint effects of two or more lifestyles were collected. Among these, 394 are protective factors, 556 are risk factors, 45 are no-influencing factors, 52 are factors with contradictory views and 1977 factors are lacking effective literatures support. PCaLiStDB is expected to facilitate the prevention and control of PCa, as well as the promotion of mechanistic study of lifestyles on PCa.Database URL: http://www.sysbio.org.cn/pcalistdb/

  • RNA CoSSMos 2.0: an improved searchable database of secondary structure
           motifs in RNA three-dimensional structures

    • Authors: Richardson K; Kirkpatrick C, Znosko B.
      Abstract: AbstractThe RNA Characterization of Secondary Structure Motifs, RNA CoSSMos, database is a freely accessible online database that allows users to identify secondary structure motifs among RNA 3D structures and explore their structural features. RNA CoSSMos 2.0 now requires two closing base pairs for all RNA loop motifs to create a less redundant database of secondary structures. Furthermore, RNA CoSSMos 2.0 represents an upgraded database with new features that summarize search findings and aid in the search for 3D structural patterns among RNA secondary structure motifs. Previously, users were limited to viewing search results individually, with no built-in tools to compare search results. RNA CoSSMos 2.0 provides two new features, allowing users to summarize, analyze and compare their search result findings. A function has been added to the website that calculates the average and representative structures of the search results. Additionally, users can now view a summary page of their search results that reports percentages of each structural feature found, including sugar pucker, glycosidic linkage, hydrogen bonding patterns and stacking interactions. Other upgrades include a newly embedded NGL structural viewer, the option to download the clipped structure coordinates in *.pdb format and improved NMR structure results. RNA CoSSMos 2.0 is no longer simply a search engine for a structure database; it now has the capability of analyzing, comparing and summarizing search results.Database URL: http://rnacossmos.com

  • miR-TV: an interactive microRNA Target Viewer for microRNA and target gene
           expression interrogation for human cancer studies

    • Authors: Pan C; Lin W.
      Abstract: AbstractMicroRNAs (miRNAs) have been identified in many organisms, and they are essential for gene expression regulation in many critical cellular processes. The expression levels of these genes and miRNAs are closely associated with the progression of diseases such as cancers. Furthermore, survival analysis is a significant indicator for evaluating the criticality of these cellular processes in cancer progression. We established a web tool, miRNA Target Viewer (miR-TV), which integrates 5p-arm and 3p-arm miRNA expression profiles, mRNA target gene expression levels in healthy and cancer populations, and clinical data of cancer patients and their survival information. The developed miR-TV obtained miRNA-seq, mRNA-seq and clinical data from the Cancer Genome Atlas and potential miRNA target gene predictions from miRDB, targetScan and miRanda. The data presentation was implemented using the D3 javascript toolkit. The D3 toolkit is frequently used to provide an easy-to-use interactive interface. Our miR-TV provides a user-friendly and interactive interface, which can be beneficial for biomedical researchers to freely interrogate miRNA expression information and their potential target genes. We believe that such a data visualization bioinformatics tool is excellent for obtaining information from massive biological data.Database URL: http://mirtv.ibms.sinica.edu.tw

  • Phenotype–genotype network construction and characterization: a case
           study of cardiovascular diseases and associated non-coding RNAs

    • Authors: Wu R; Lin Y, Liu X, et al.
      Abstract: AbstractThe phenotype–genotype relationship is a key for personalized and precision medicine for complex diseases. To unravel the complexity of the clinical phenotype–genotype network, we used cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) and associated non-coding RNAs (ncRNAs) (i.e. miRNAs, long ncRNAs, etc.) as the case for the study of CVDs at a systems or network level. We first integrated a database of CVDs and ncRNAs (CVDncR, http://sysbio.org.cn/cvdncr/) to construct CVD–ncRNA networks and annotate their clinical associations. To characterize the networks, we then separated the miRNAs into two groups, i.e. universal miRNAs associated with at least two types of CVDs and specific miRNAs related only to one type of CVD. Our analyses indicated two interesting patterns in these CVD–ncRNA networks. First, scale-free features were present within both CVD–miRNA and CVD–lncRNA networks; second, universal miRNAs were more likely to be CVDs biomarkers. These results were confirmed by computational functional analyses. The findings offer theoretical guidance for decoding CVD–ncRNA associations and will facilitate the screening of CVD ncRNA biomarkers.Database URL: http://sysbio.org.cn/cvdncr/

  • Annotation and curation of the causality information in LncRNADisease

    • Authors: Jia K; Gao Y, Shi J, et al.
      Abstract: AbstractDisease causative non-coding RNAs (ncRNAs) are of great importance in understanding a disease, for they directly contribute to the development or progress of a disease. Identifying the causative ncRNAs can provide vital implications for biomedical researches. In this work, we updated the long non-coding RNA disease database (LncRNADisease) with long non-coding RNA (lncRNA) causality information with manual annotations of the causal associations between lncRNAs/circular RNAs (circRNAs) and diseases by reviewing related publications. Of the total 11 568 experimental associations, 2297 out of 10 564 lncRNA-disease associations and 198 out of 1004 circRNA-disease associations were identified to be causal, whereas 635 lncRNAs and 126 circRNAs were identified to be causative for the development or progress of at least one disease. The updated information and functions of the database can offer great help to future researches involving lncRNA/circRNA-disease relationship. The latest LncRNADisease database is available at http://www.rnanut.net/lncrnadisease.

  • ChIPSummitDB: a ChIP-seq-based database of human transcription factor
           binding sites and the topological arrangements of the proteins bound to
           them

    • Authors: Czipa E; Schiller M, Nagy T, et al.
      Abstract: AbstractChIP-seq reveals genomic regions where proteins, e.g. transcription factors (TFs) interact with DNA. A substantial fraction of these regions, however, do not contain the cognate binding site for the TF of interest. This phenomenon might be explained by protein–protein interactions and co-precipitation of interacting gene regulatory elements. We uniformly processed 3727 human ChIP-seq data sets and determined the cistrome of 292 TFs, as well as the distances between the TF binding motif centers and the ChIP-seq peak summits. ChIPSummitDB enables the analysis of ChIP-seq data using multiple approaches. The 292 cistromes and corresponding ChIP-seq peak sets can be browsed in GenomeView. Overlapping SNPs can be inspected in dbSNPView. Most importantly, the MotifView and PairShiftView pages show the average distance between motif centers and overlapping ChIP-seq peak summits and distance distributions thereof, respectively. In addition to providing a comprehensive human TF binding site collection, the ChIPSummitDB database and web interface allows for the examination of the topological arrangement of TF complexes genome-wide. ChIPSummitDB is freely accessible at http://summit.med.unideb.hu/summitdb/. The database will be regularly updated and extended with the newly available human and mouse ChIP-seq data sets.

  • Bio-AnswerFinder: a system to find answers to questions from biomedical
           texts

    • Authors: Ozyurt I; Bandrowski A, Grethe J.
      Abstract: The ever accelerating pace of biomedical research results in corresponding acceleration in the volume of biomedical literature created. Since new research builds upon existing knowledge, the rate of increase in the available knowledge encoded in biomedical literature makes the easy access to that implicit knowledge more vital over time. Toward the goal of making implicit knowledge in the biomedical literature easily accessible to biomedical researchers, we introduce a question answering system called Bio-AnswerFinder. Bio-AnswerFinder uses a weighted-relaxed word mover's distance based similarity on word/phrase embeddings learned from PubMed abstracts to rank answers after question focus entity type filtering. Our approach retrieves relevant documents iteratively via enhanced keyword queries from a traditional search engine. To improve document retrieval performance, we introduced a supervised long short term memory neural network to select keywords from the question to facilitate iterative keyword search. Our unsupervised baseline system achieves a mean reciprocal rank score of 0.46 and Precision@1 of 0.32 on 936 questions from BioASQ. The answer sentences are further ranked by a fine-tuned bidirectional encoder representation from transformers (BERT) classifier trained using 100 answer candidate sentences per question for 492 BioASQ questions. To test ranking performance, we report a blind test on 100 questions that three independent annotators scored. These experts preferred BERT based reranking with 7% improvement on MRR and 13% improvement on Precision@1 scores on average.
