MOTIVATION Capillary electrophoresis (CE) of nucleic acids is a workhorse technology underlying high-throughput genome analysis and large-scale chemical mapping for nucleic acid structural inference. Despite the wide availability of CE-based instruments, there remain challenges in leveraging their full power for quantitative analysis of RNA and DNA… (More)
Some viruses have been reported to transcribe microRNAs, implying complex relationships between the host and the pathogen at the post-transcriptional level through microRNAs in virus-infected cells. Although many computational algorithms have been developed for microRNA target prediction, few have been designed exclusively to find cellular or viral mRNA… (More)
In millimeter Wave wireless personal area networks (mmWave WPANs), the design of efficient concurrent transmission considered high modulations up to a few Gbps is one of the most challenging issues. Even for the concurrent transmission over mmWave networks, the use of directional antenna is highly recommended to guarantee high modulations and to overcome… (More)
MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are short sequences of ribonucleic acids that control the expression of target messenger RNAs (mRNAs) by binding them. Robust prediction of miRNA-mRNA pairs is of utmost importance in deciphering gene regulation but has been challenging because of high false positive rates, despite a deluge of computational tools that normally require… (More)
Since microRNAs (miRNAs) play a crucial role in post-transcriptional gene regulation, miRNA identification is one of the most essential problems in computational biology. miRNAs are usually short in length ranging between 20 and 23 base pairs. It is thus often difficult to distinguish miRNA-encoding sequences from other non-coding RNAs and pseudo miRNAs… (More)

PURPOSE Genetic variations among prostate cancer (PCa) patients who underwent radical prostatectomy (RP) and pelvic lymph node dissection were evaluated to predict lymph node invasion (LNI). Exome arrays were used to develop a clinicogenetic model that combined clinical data related to PCa and individual genetic variations. MATERIALS AND METHODS We… (More)
