The RNAKinetics server ( is a web interface for the newly developed RNAKinetics software. The software models the dynamics of RNA secondary structure by the means of kinetic analysis of folding transitions of a growing RNA molecule. The result of the modeling is a kinetic ensemble, i.e. a collection of RNA structures that(More)
Modeling of signal driven transcriptional reprogramming is critical for understanding of organism development, human disease, and cell biology. Many current modeling techniques discount key features of the biological sub-systems when modeling multiscale, organism-level processes. We present a mechanistic hybrid model, GESSA, which integrates a novel pooled(More)

Development of head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC) is characterized by accumulation of mutations in several oncogenes and tumor suppressor genes. We have formerly described the mutation pattern of HNSCC and described NOTCH signaling pathway alterations. Given the complexity of the HNSCC, here we extend the previous study to understand the overall(More)
Head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC) is largely divided into two groups based on their etiology, human papillomavirus (HPV)-positive and -negative. Global DNA methylation changes are known to drive oncogene and tumor suppressor expression in primary HNSCC of both types. However, significant heterogeneity in DNA methylation within the groups results(More)
We describe an algorithm (IRSA) for identification of common regulatory signals in samples of unaligned DNA sequences. The algorithm was tested on randomly generated sequences of fixed length with implanted signal of length 15 with 4 mutations, and on natural upstream regions of bacterial genes regulated by PurR, ArgR and CRP. Then it was applied to(More)
It remains unclear whether causal, rather than merely correlational, relationships in molecular networks can be inferred in complex biological settings. Here we describe the HPN-DREAM network inference challenge, which focused on learning causal influences in signaling networks. We used phosphoprotein data from cancer cell lines as well as in silico data(More)
Cancer is a complex and heterogeneous disease, not only at a genetic and biochemical level, but also at a tissue, organism, and population level. Multiple data streams, from reductionist biochemistry in vitro to high-throughput "-omics" from clinical material, have been generated with the hope that they encode useful information about phenotype and,(More)
