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 sequencing results, the quality score is reported for each base, representing the probability that the base is called incorrectly. The notion of quality scores was initially developed for conventional Sanger sequencing, but is widely used for next-generation sequencing techniques, including Illumina. In this paper, we carry out in-depth analysis of(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)
Although T cells are known to be involved in the pathogenesis of coronary artery disease, it is unclear which subpopulation of T cells contributes to pathogenesis in acute myocardial infarction (MI). We studied the immunological characteristics and clinical impact of CD8(+)CD57(+) T cells in acute MI patients. The frequency of CD57(+) cells among CD8(+) T(More)
To assess the genetic diversity of an environmental sample in metagenomics studies, the amplicon sequences of 16s rRNA genes need to be clustered into operational taxonomic units (OTUs). Many existing tools for OTU clustering trade off between accuracy and computational efficiency. We propose a novel OTU clustering algorithm, hc-OTU, which achieves high(More)
