    KCF-S: KEGG Chemical Function and Substructure for improved interpretability and prediction in chemical bioinformatics

    In order to develop hypothesis on unknown metabolic pathways, biochemists frequently rely on literature that uses a free-text format to describe functional groups or substructures. In computational chemistry o...

    Shrinkage regression-based methods for microarray missing value imputation

    Missing values commonly occur in the microarray data, which usually contain more than 5% missing values with up to 90% of genes affected. Inaccurate missing value estimation results in reducing the power of do...
