Protein-protein interactions (PPIs) play a critical role in many cellular functions. A number of experimental techniques have been applied to discover PPIs; however, these techniques are expensive in terms of time, money, and expertise. There are also large discrepancies between the PPI data collected by the same or different techniques in the same(More)
A goal of the post-genomics era has been to elucidate a detailed global map of protein-protein interactions (PPIs) within a cell. Here, we show that the presence of co-occurring short polypeptide sequences between interacting protein partners appears to be conserved across different organisms. We present an algorithm to automatically generate PPI prediction(More)
BACKGROUND Since the function of a protein is largely dictated by its three dimensional configuration, determining a protein's structure is of fundamental importance to biology. Here we report on a novel approach to determining the one dimensional secondary structure of proteins (distinguishing alpha-helices, beta-strands, and non-regular structures) from(More)
Thyroid hormones play an essential role in early vertebrate development as well as other key processes. One of its modes of action is to bind to the thyroid hormone receptor (TR) which, in turn, binds to thyroid response elements (TREs) in promoter regions of target genes. The sequence motif for TREs remains largely undefined as does the precise chromosomal(More)
Our knowledge of global protein-protein interaction (PPI) networks in complex organisms such as humans is hindered by technical limitations of current methods. On the basis of short co-occurring polypeptide regions, we developed a tool called MP-PIPE capable of predicting a global human PPI network within 3 months. With a recall of 23% at a precision of(More)
Interactions among proteins are essential to many biological functions in living cells but experimentally detected interactions represent only a small fraction of the real interaction network. Computational protein interaction prediction methods have become important to augment the experimental methods; in particular sequence based prediction methods that(More)
BACKGROUND While there are many methods for predicting protein-protein interaction, very few can determine the specific site of interaction on each protein. Characterization of the specific sequence regions mediating interaction (binding sites) is crucial for an understanding of cellular pathways. Experimental methods often report false binding sites due to(More)
The prediction of novel pre-microRNA (miRNA) from genomic sequence has received considerable attention recently. However, the majority of studies have focused on the human genome. Previous studies have demonstrated that sensitivity (correctly detecting true miRNA) is sustained when human-trained methods are applied to other species, however they have failed(More)
This paper introduces the importance of biosignal quality assessment and presents a pattern classification approach to differentiate clean from contaminated electromyography (EMG) signals. Alternatively to traditional bottom-up approaches, which examine specific contaminants only, we present a top-down approach using a one-class support vector machine (SVM)(More)
