A new method for homology search of DNA sequences is suggested. This method may be used to find extensive and not strong homologies with point mutations and deletions. The running program time for comparing sequences is less then the dynamic program algorithms at least at two orders of magnitude. It makes possible to use the method for homology searching(More)
A new approach has been proposed for predicting the kinetic ensemble of the RNA secondary structures during chain growth. It is based on an analysis of time intervals in structural reconstruction. The Markov chain employed for describing structural reconstruction was modelled on the Monte Carlo method. A calculation was made of possible secondary structures(More)
An algorithm from the pattern recognition theory 'generalized portrait' was used to find a distinguishing vector (scoring matrix) for E. coli promoters. We have attempted to solve three closely linked problems: (i) the selection of significant features of the signal; (ii) subsequent multiple alignment and (iii) calculation of the vector coordinates.(More)
A new approach to the prediction of secondary RNA structures based on the analysis of the kinetics of molecular self-organisation is proposed herein. The Markov process is used to describe structural reconstructions during secondary structure formation. This process is modelled by a Monte-Carlo method. Examples of the calculation by this method of the(More)
Production of d S-threo-isocitric acid (ICA) by yeast meets serious difficulties since it is accompanied by a simultaneous production of citric acid (CA) in significant amounts that reduces the yield of desired product. In order to develop an effective process of ICA production, 60 yeast strains of different genera (Candida, Pichia, Saccharomyces,(More)
The process of succinic acid (SA) production represents the combination of microbial synthesis of α-ketoglutaric acid from rapeseed oil by yeast Yarrowia lipolytica VKM Y-2412 and subsequent decarboxylation of α-ketoglutaric acid by hydrogen peroxide to SA that leads to the production of 69.0 g l−1 of SA and 1.36 g l−1 of acetic acid. SA was isolated from(More)
Identification of groups of co-regulated genes (regulons) is an important part of studying transcriptional regulation. One possible approach is to cluster regulatory sites that were found using experimental or computational techniques, such as phylogenetic footprinting. This strategy doesn't require a priori knowledge about co-regulation and allows finding(More)
Prediction of membrane segments in sequences of membrane proteins is well known and important problem. Accuracy of the solution of this problem by methods that don't use homology search in additional data bank can be improved. There is a lack of testing data in this area because of small amount of real structures of membrane proteins. In this work, we(More)
The origin of orphan genes and the function they perform remain an enigmatic problem that modern molecular biology has to solve. The recently developed PHOG database helped to shed light on some aspects of the evolution of these genes. Fast evolution is probably the main factor that shapes this evolutionary process. The speed of molecular evolution reflects(More)
The analysis of the various cooling schedules for the simulated annealing algorithm is made towards the restriction map construction. Algorithm behaviour under control of three different cost functions is considered and the discrete cost function is found to handle successfully experimental data with realistic error sizes. A program using this function has(More)
