Use of computational methods to predict gene regulatory networks (GRNs) from gene expression data is a challenging task. Many studies have been conducted using unsupervised methods to fulfill the task; however, such methods usually yield low prediction accuracies due to the lack of training data. In this article, we propose semi-supervised methods for GRN(More)
Congenital heart disease (CHD), a prevalent birth defect occurring in 1% of newborns, likely results from aberrant expression of cardiac developmental genes. Mutations in a variety of cardiac transcription factors, developmental signalling molecules and molecules that modify chromatin cause at least 20% of disease, but most CHD remains unexplained.

The era of genomics brings the potential of better DNA based risk prediction and treatment. While genome-wide association studies are extensively studied for risk prediction, the potential of using whole exome data for this purpose is unclear. We explore this problem for chronic lymphocytic leukemia that is one of the largest whole exome dataset of 186 case(More)
