  • BALCONY: an R package for MSA and functional compartments of protein
           variability analysis

    • Authors: Alicja Płuciennik; Michał Stolarczyk, Maria Bzówka, Agata Raczyńska, Tomasz Magdziarz Artur Góra
      Abstract: Here, we present an R package for entropy/variability analysis that facilitates prompt and convenient data extraction, manipulation and visualization of protein features from multiple sequence alignments. BALC...

  • REHUNT: a reliable and open source package for restriction enzyme hunting

    • Authors: Yu-Huei Cheng; Jiun-Jian Liaw Che-Nan Kuo
      Abstract: Restriction enzymes are used frequently in biotechnology. However, manual mining of restriction enzymes is challenging. Furthermore, integrating available restriction enzymes into different bioinformatics syst...

  • miREM: an expectation-maximization approach for prioritizing miRNAs
           associated with gene-set

    • Authors: Luqman Hakim Abdul Hadi; Quy Xiao Xuan Lin, Tri Tran Minh, Marie Loh, Hong Kiat Ng, Agus Salim, Richie Soong Touati Benoukraf
      Abstract: The knowledge of miRNAs regulating the expression of sets of mRNAs has led to novel insights into numerous and diverse cellular mechanisms. While a single miRNA may regulate many genes, one gene can be regulat...

  • Multi-class segmentation of neuronal structures in electron microscopy

    • Authors: Kendrick Cetina; José M. Buenaposada Luis Baumela
      Abstract: Serial block face scanning electron microscopy (SBFEM) is becoming a popular technology in neuroscience. We have seen in the last years an increasing number of works addressing the problem of segmenting cellul...

  • PRS-on-Spark (PRSoS): a novel, efficient and flexible approach for
           generating polygenic risk scores

    • Authors: Lawrence M. Chen; Nelson Yao, Elika Garg, Yuecai Zhu, Thao T. T. Nguyen, Irina Pokhvisneva, Shantala A. Hari Dass, Eva Unternaehrer, Hélène Gaudreau, Marie Forest, Lisa M. McEwen, Julia L. MacIsaac, Michael S. Kobor, Celia M. T. Greenwood, Patricia P. Silveira, Michael J. Meaney…
      Abstract: Polygenic risk scores (PRS) describe the genomic contribution to complex phenotypes and consistently account for a larger proportion of variance in outcome than single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) alone. Ho...
