Human cells contain five canonical, replication-dependent somatic histone H1 subtypes (H1.1, H1.2, H1.3, H1.4, and H1.5). Although they are key chromatin components, the genomic distribution of the H1 subtypes is still unknown, and their role in chromatin processes has thus far remained elusive. Here, we map the genomic localization of all somatic(More)
Cancer is a serious and life-eliminating disease. Majority of anticancer agents are non-selective. Along with the cancerous cells they also target the normal ones. An important aspect is to hit the developing mechanism of the tumor, which is highlighted by in silico drug designing. On the basis of novel molecular targets, in silico (computational approach)(More)
Histone deacetylase inhibitors (HDACIs) have emerged as efficient chemotherapeutic agents. Molecular docking studies of hydroxamtes, biphenyl and benzamide derivatives using Human HDAC8 with pdb id: 1T69 have been carried out in order to find the most active anticancer HDACI. AutoDock 4.0 has been used for docking. The most active lead compound has been(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine antibiotic resistance patterns and virulence potential of Campylobacter jejuni (C. jejuni) isolates from clinical human diarrheal infections, cattle and healthy broilers. METHODS Antibiotic sensitivity patterns of C. jejuni isolates were determined by Kirby Bauer Disc Diffusion assay. These isolates were then subjected to virulence(More)
Analysis of gene expression data includes classification of the data into groups and subgroups based on similar expression patterns. Standard clustering methods for the analysis of gene expression data only identifies the global models while missing the local expression patterns. In order to identify the missed patterns biclustering approach has been(More)
Mining patterns of histone modifications interplay from epigenomic profiles are one of the leading research areas these days. Various methods based on clustering approaches and hidden Markov models have been presented so far with some limitations. Here we present ChromClust, a semi-supervised clustering tool for mining commonly occurring histone(More)
Combinatorial patterns of histone modifications sketch the epigenomic locale. Specific positions of these modifications in the genome are marked by the presence of such signals. Various methods highlight such patterns on global scale hence missing the local patterns which are the actual hidden combinatorics. We present ChromBiSim, an interactive tool for(More)
The enteropathogen Campylobacter jejuni is a global health disaster, being one of the leading causes of bacterial gastroenteritis. Here, we present the draft genome sequence of C. jejuni strain cj255, isolated from a chicken source in Islamabad, Pakistan. The draft genome sequence will aid in epidemiological studies and quarantine of this broad-host-range(More)
Human body is the home for a large number of microbes. The complexity of enterotype depends on the body site. Microbial communities in various samples from different regions are being classified on the basis of 16S rRNA gene sequences. With the improvement in sequencing technologies various computational methods have been used for the analysis of microbiome(More)
