    Functional redundancy of transcription factors explains why most binding targets of a transcription factor are not affected when the transcription factor is knocked out

    Biologists are puzzled by the extremely low percentage (3%) of the binding targets of a yeast transcription factor (TF) affected when the TF is knocked out, a phenomenon observed by comparing the TF binding da...

    Disentangling the multigenic and pleiotropic nature of molecular function

    Biological processes at the molecular level are usually represented by molecular interaction networks. Function is organised and modularity identified based on network topology, however, this approach often fa...

    A model for gene deregulation detection using expression data

    In tumoral cells, gene regulation mechanisms are severely altered. Genes that do not react normally to their regulators' activity can provide explanations for the tumoral behavior, and be characteristic of can...
