  1. Research

    A scalable method for discovering significant subnetworks

    Study of biological networks is an essential first step to understand the complex functions they govern in different organisms. The topology of interactions that define how biological networks operate is often...

    A novel two-layer SVM model in miRNA Drosha processing site detection

    MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are a large class of non-coding RNAs with important functions wide spread in animals, plants and viruses. Studies showed that an RNase III family member called Drosha recognizes most miRNAs,...

    An improved sparse representation model with structural information for Multicolour Fluorescence In-Situ Hybridization (M-FISH) image classification

    Multicolour Fluorescence In-Situ Hybridization (M-FISH) images are employed for detecting chromosomal abnormalities such as chromosomal translocations, deletions, duplication and inversions. This technique uses m...

  4. Research

    A framework for biomedical figure segmentation towards image-based document retrieval

    The figures included in many of the biomedical publications play an important role in understanding the biological experiments and facts described within. Recent studies have shown that it is possible to integ...

    On an ensemble algorithm for clustering cancer patient data

    The TNM staging system is based on three anatomic prognostic factors: Tumor, Lymph Node and Metastasis. However, cancer is no longer considered an anatomic disease. Therefore, the TNM should be expanded to acc...

    Weighted set enrichment of gene expression data

    Sets of genes that are known to be associated with each other can be used to interpret microarray data. This gene set approach to microarray data analysis can illustrate patterns of gene expression which may b...

    Two accurate sequence, structure, and phylogenetic template-based RNA alignment systems

    The analysis of RNA sequences, once a small niche field for a small collection of scientists whose primary emphasis was the structure and function of a few RNA molecules, has grown most significantly with the ...
