BACKGROUND Acetabularia acetabulum is a giant unicellular green alga whose size and complex life cycle make it an attractive model for understanding morphogenesis and subcellular compartmentalization. The life cycle of this marine unicell is composed of several developmental phases. Juvenile and adult phases are temporally sequential but physiologically and(More)
BACKGROUND Changes in host tumor genome DNA methylation patterns are among the molecular alterations associated with HPV-related carcinogenesis. However, there is little known about the epigenetic changes associated specifically with the development of anal squamous cell cancer (SCC). We sought to characterize broad methylation profiles across the spectrum(More)
Analysis of gene expression microarray datasets presents the high risk of over-fitting (spurious patterns) because of their feature-rich but case-poor nature. This paper describes our ongoing efforts to develop a method to combat over-fitting and determine the strongest signal in the dataset. A GA-SVM hybrid along with Gaussian noise (manual noise gain) is(More)
