Conservation of the sequence and temporal expression of let-7 heterochronic regulatory RNA
Two small RNAs regulate the timing of Caenorhabditis elegans development. Transition from the first to the second larval stage fates requires the 22-nucleotide lin-4 RNA, and transition from lateExpand

Estimating mixture of dirichlet process models
Abstract Current Gibbs sampling schemes in mixture of Dirichlet process (MDP) models are restricted to using “conjugate” base measures that allow analytic evaluation of the transition probabilitiesExpand

Model-Based Clustering for Expression Data via a Dirichlet Process Mixture Model
This chapter describes a clustering procedure for microarray expression data based on a well-defined statistical model, specifically, a conjugate Dirichlet process mixture model. The clusteringExpand

Bayesian Nonparametric Inference - Why and How.
We review inference under models with nonparametric Bayesian (BNP) priors. The discussion follows a set of examples for some common inference problems. The examples are chosen to highlight problemsExpand

A Bayesian mixture model for differential gene expression
We propose model-based inference for differential gene expression, using a nonparametric Bayesian probability model for the distribution of gene intensities under various conditions. The probabilityExpand

A shot in the dark: the silent quest of a free-flying phonotactic fly.
To reproduce, females of the parasitoid fly Ormia ochracea detect and localise a calling male cricket upon which they deposit their endoparasitic larvae. Calling male crickets are therefore subjectExpand

Evolutionary aspects of developmentally regulated helix-loop-helix transcription factors in striated muscle of jellyfish.
The function of basic helix-loop-helix (bHLH) proteins in cell differentiation was shown to be conserved from Drosophila to vertebrates, exemplified by the function of MyoD in striated muscleExpand

The homeobox gene Otx of the jellyfish Podocoryne carnea: role of a head gene in striated muscle and evolution.
In many bilaterian animals members of the Otx gene family are expressed in head or brain structures. Cnidarians, however, have no clearly homologous head and no distinct brain; but an Otx homologExpand
