This article summarizes the motivation for, and the proceedings of, the first ISA-TAB workshop held December 6-8, 2007, at the EBI, Cambridge, UK. This exploratory workshop, organized by members of the Microarray Gene Expression Data (MGED) Society's Reporting Structure for Biological Investigations (RSBI) working group, brought together a group of(More)
Beta-barrel transmembrane (bbtm) proteins are a functionally important and diverse group of proteins expressed in the outer membranes of bacteria (both gram negative and acid fast gram positive), mitochondria and chloroplasts. Despite recent publications describing reasonable levels of accuracy for discriminating between bbtm proteins and other proteins,(More)
TMB-Hunt is a program that uses a modified k-nearest neighbour (k-NN) algorithm to classify protein sequences as transmembrane beta-barrel (TMB) or non-TMB on the basis of whole sequence amino acid composition. By including differentially weighted amino acids, evolutionary information and by calibrating the scoring, a discrimination accuracy of 92.5% was(More)
The ability to search sequence datasets for membrane spanning proteins is an important requirement for genome annotation. However, the development of algorithms to identify novel types of transmembrane beta-barrel (TMB) protein has proven substantially harder than for transmembrane helical proteins, owing to a shorter TM domain in which only alternate(More)
When a drug that is sold exhibits side effects, a well functioning ecosystem of pharmaceutical drug suppliers includes responsive regulators and pharmaceutical companies. Existing systems for monitoring adverse drug events, such as the Federal Adverse Events Reporting System (FAERS) in the US, have shown limited effectiveness due to the lack of incentives(More)
