Although considerable progress has been made in dissecting the signaling pathways involved in the innate immune response, it is now apparent that this response can no longer be productively thought of in terms of simple linear pathways. InnateDB (www.innatedb.ca) has been developed to facilitate systems-level analyses that will provide better insight into(More)
A number of microarray analysis software packages exist already; however, none combines the user-friendly features of a web-based interface with potential ability to analyse multiple arrays at once using flexible analysis steps. The ArrayPipe web server (freely available at www.pathogenomics.ca/arraypipe) allows the automated application of complex analyses(More)
Genomic approaches can be exploited to expose the complexities and conservation of biological systems such as the immune network across various mammalian species. In this study, temporal transcriptional expression profiles were analyzed in human and bovine monocytic cells in response to the TLR-4 agonist, LPS, in the presence or absence of their respective(More)
The excitotoxic hypothesis suggests that cerebral ischemic damage results in part from the accumulation of the excitatory and potentially toxic neurotransmitters glutamate and aspartate. Adenosine, which also increases during cerebral ischemia, is proposed to inhibit neurotransmitter release. The purpose of this study was to determine if adenosine receptor(More)
BACKGROUND Orthologs (genes that have diverged after a speciation event) tend to have similar function, and so their prediction has become an important component of comparative genomics and genome annotation. The gold standard phylogenetic analysis approach of comparing available organismal phylogeny to gene phylogeny is not easily automated for genome-wide(More)
As genome sequence data and gene prediction improve, probes developed for a given microarray experiment should be continuously re-evaluated for their specificity for given genes. ProbeLynx(www.pathogenomics.ca/probelynx) is a new web service which uses current genomic sequence information to re-examine microarray probe specificity and provide annotation(More)
The severity of bovine respiratory infections has been linked to a variety of factors, including environmental and nutritional changes, transportation, and social reorganization of weaned calves. Fatal respiratory infections, however, usually occur when a primary viral infection compromises host defences and enhances the severity of a secondary bacterial(More)
