The so-called receiver operating characteristic technique is used as a tool in an optimization procedure for the improvement and assessment of a filter-based methodology for the location of hot spots in protein sequences and exons in DNA sequences. By optimizing the characteristic values of the nucleotides, high efficiency as well as improved accuracy can(More)
A technique for the identification of hot-spot locations in proteins using digital filters is described. In this technique, the characteristic frequency of the protein sequence of interest is first determined from the consensus spectrum of the corresponding functional group. The sequence is then filtered by using a specialized narrowband bandpass digital(More)
—An improved technique for the location of hot spots in proteins based on the use of a bandpass notch (BPN) filter is described. The BPN filter is designed by specifying a stability margin and then minimizing the area under the amplitude response so as to achieve maximum selectivity for the chosen stability margin. Preliminary results indicate that the use(More)
MOTIVATION Reliable estimation of the mean fragment length for next-generation short-read sequencing data is an important step in next-generation sequencing analysis pipelines, most notably because of its impact on the accuracy of the enriched regions identified by peak-calling algorithms. Although many peak-calling algorithms include a fragment-length(More)
—A filtering technique for the location of hot spots in proteins proposed recently is applied for the location of exons in DNA sequences. The technique involves conversion of a DNA character sequence into a numerical sequence using the electron-ion interaction potential values and then filtering the numerical sequence using a narrowband bandpass digital(More)
A tuning technique is proposed for the location of hot spots in proteins using a bandpass notch (BPN) digital filter. The technique involves tuning the notch frequency of the filter over a small frequency range. To facilitate tuning, a user-friendly graphical interface has been implemented using MATLAB. Simulations have shown that the use of the tuning(More)
—An optimized numerical mapping scheme for achieving improved location of exons in DNA sequences using digital filters is proposed. Characteristic numerical values for the four nucleotides, referred to as pseudo-EIIP values, are obtained using a training procedure where the location accuracy is maximized using a quasi-Newton algorithm based on the(More)
BACKGROUND High-throughput sequencing experiments can be viewed as measuring some sort of a "genomic signal" that may represent a biological event such as the binding of a transcription factor to the genome, locations of chromatin modifications, or even a background or control condition. Numerous algorithms have been developed to extract different kinds of(More)
Evaluating the similarity of different measured variables is a fundamental task of statistics, and a key part of many bioinformatics algorithms. Here we propose a Bayesian scheme for estimating the correlation between different entities' measurements based on high-throughput sequencing data. These entities could be different genes or miRNAs whose expression(More)
