Zebrafish (Danio rerio) is a well-recognized model for the study of vertebrate developmental genetics, yet at the same time little is known about the transcriptional events that underlie zebrafish embryogenesis. Here we have employed microarray analysis to study the temporal activity of developmentally regulated genes during zebrafish embryogenesis.(More)
Cell-cycle regulated gene prediction using microarray time-course measurements of the mRNA expression levels of genes has been used by several researchers. The popularly employed approach is Fourier transform (FT) method in conjunction with the set of known cell-cycle regulated genes. In the absence of training data, Fourier transform method is sensitive to(More)
The zebrafish (Danio rerio) has been long advocated as a model for cancer research, but little is known about the real molecular similarities between zebrafish and human tumors. Comparative analysis of microarray data from zebrafish liver tumors with those from four human tumor types revealed molecular conservation at various levels between fish and human(More)
MOTIVATION The false discovery rate (FDR) provides a key statistical assessment for microarray studies. Its value depends on the proportion pi(0) of non-differentially expressed (non-DE) genes. In most microarray studies, many genes have small effects not easily separable from non-DE genes. As a result, current methods often overestimate pi(0) and FDR,(More)
Biclustering is an important analysis procedure to understand the biological mechanisms from microarray gene expression data. Several algorithms have been proposed to identify biclusters, but very little effort was made to compare the performance of different algorithms on real datasets and combine the resultant biclusters into one unified ranking. In this(More)
DNA replication is a fundamental biological process during S phase of cell division. It is initiated from several hundreds of origins along whole chromosome with different firing efficiencies (or frequency of usage). Direct measurement of origin firing efficiency by techniques such as DNA combing are time-consuming and lack the ability to measure all(More)
BACKGROUND The binding events of DNA-interacting proteins and their patterns can be extensively characterized by high density ChIP-chip tiling array data. The characteristics of the binding events could be different for different transcription factors. They may even vary for a given transcription factor among different interaction loci. The knowledge of(More)
