Encoded by the genome of most eukaryotes examined so far, microRNAs (miRNAs) are small approximately 21-nucleotide (nt) noncoding RNAs (ncRNAs) derived from a biosynthetic cascade involving sequential processing steps executed by the ribonucleases (RNases) III Drosha and Dicer. Following their recent identification, miRNAs have rapidly taken the center(More)
OBJECTIVE Testis cancer is the most common cancer in young men, and its incidence continues to rise. Even if prognosis is considered as good, a group with bad prognosis still remains.

An automatic indexing method based on syntactical text analysis combined with statistical analysis is proposed and evaluated. Many combinations for the choice of term categories and weighting methods are tested. The experiment conducted on a software engineering corpus shows systematic improvement in the use of syntactic term phrases compared to using only(More)

APLEC will associate automatically to any text descriptive grammar (TDG-Grammaire descriptive de texte) a ques-tion/answer module where the questions are asked in a given natural(More)
