As the pace of genome sequencing has accelerated, the need for highly accurate gene prediction systems has grown. Computational systems for identifying genes in prokaryotic genomes have sensitivities of 98-99% or higher (Delcher et al., Nucleic Acids Res., 27, 4636-4641, 1999). These accuracy figures are calculated by comparing the locations of verified(More)
MOTIVATION Calculation of the information content of motifs in genomes highly biased in nucleotide composition is likely to lead to overestimates of the amount of useful information in the motif. Calculating relative information can compensate for biases, however the resulting information content is the amount seen by an observer and not by a macromolecule(More)
BACKGROUND While dengue-elicited early and transient host responses preceding defervescence could shape the disease outcome and reveal mechanisms of the disease pathogenesis, assessment of these responses are difficult as patients rarely seek healthcare during the first days of benign fever and thus data are lacking. METHODS In this study, focusing on(More)
Transterm facilitates studies of messenger RNAs and translational control signals. Each messenger RNA (mRNA) from GenBank is extracted and broken into its functional components, its coding sequence, initiation context, termination context, flanking sequence representing its 5' UTR (untranslated region), 3' UTR and translational signals. In addition,(More)
Web services have become a key technology for bioinformatics, since life science databases are globally decentralized and the exponential increase in the amount of available data demands for efficient systems without the need to transfer entire databases for every step of an analysis. However, various incompatibilities among database resources and analysis(More)
Uninhibited access to the unstructured information distributed across the web and in scientific literature databases continues to be beyond the reach of scientists and health professionals. To address this challenge we have developed a literature driven, ontology-centric navigation infrastructure consisting of a content acquisition engine, a domain-specific(More)
Signals in the mRNA influence how efficiently it is translated into protein. . Previous studies have indicated that important signals are located around the initiation codon. In this study we describe a new approach to discovering these signals. This approach has been applied to 53 complete genomes or chromosomes. For the region flanking initiation codons(More)
