In the last 10 years, Inference of Gene Regulatory Networks from Microarray data has become an important research area in Bioinformatics. Several algorithms have been proposed and Regulatory networks have been inferred with good accuracy for Saccromycin cervisea, Escherichia coli, Hela cells etc. A large amount of knowledge on various biological systems,(More)
The (l,d)-motif challenge problem, as introduced by Pevzner and Sze, is a mathematical abstraction of the DNA functional site discovery task. Here we expand the (l,d)-motif problem to more accurately model this task and present a novel algorithm to solve this extended problem. This algorithm is guaranteed to find all (l,d)-motifs in a set of input sequences(More)
MOTIVATION Motif discovery in sequential data is a problem of great interest and with many applications. However, previous methods have been unable to combine exhaustive search with complex motif representations and are each typically only applicable to a certain class of problems. RESULTS Here we present a generic motif discovery algorithm (Gemoda) for(More)
Biologists pioneering the new field of comparative functional genomics attempt to infer the mechanisms of gene regulation by looking for similarities and differences of gene activity over time across multiple species. They use three kinds of data: functional data such as gene activity measurements, pathway data that represent a series of reactions within a(More)
The goals of metabolic engineering are well-served by the biological information provided by metabolomics: information on how the cell is currently using its biochemical resources is perhaps one of the best ways to inform strategies to engineer a cell to produce a target compound. Using the analysis of extracellular or intracellular levels of the target(More)
The first discovery of metabolic changes in cancer occurred almost a century ago. While the genetic underpinnings of cancer have dominated its study since then, altered metabolism has recently been acknowledged as a key hallmark of cancer and metabolism-focused research has received renewed attention. The emerging field of metabolomics - which attempts to(More)
We describe a multi-omic approach to understanding the effects that the anti-malarial drug pyrimethamine has on immune physiology in rhesus macaques (Macaca mulatta). Whole blood and bone marrow (BM) RNA-Seq and plasma metabolome profiles (each with over 15,000 features) have been generated for five naïve individuals at up to seven timepoints before, during(More)
INTRODUCTION Recently, multicellular spheroids were isolated from a well-established epithelial ovarian cancer cell line, OVCAR-3, and were propagated in vitro. These spheroid-derived cells displayed numerous hallmarks of cancer stem cells, which are chemo- and radioresistant cells thought to be a significant cause of cancer recurrence and resultant(More)
There are increasing efforts to bring high-throughput systems biology techniques to bear on complex animal model systems, often with a goal of learning about underlying regulatory network structures (e.g., gene regulatory networks). However, complex animal model systems typically have significant limitations on cohort sizes, number of samples, and the(More)
