The IFSB is an international standard-setting organisation that promotes and enhances the soundness and stability of the Islamic financial services industry by issuing global prudential standards and guiding principles for the industry, broadly defined to include banking, capital markets and insurance sectors. The standards prepared by the IFSB follow a(More)
Instance reduction methods are popular methods that reduce the size of the datasets to possibly improve the classification accuracy. We present a method that reduces the size of the dataset based on the percentile of the dataset partitions which we call IPRed. We evaluate our and other popular instance reduction methods from a classification perspective by(More)
Predicting drug response to cancer disease is an important problem in modern clinical oncology that attracted increasing recent attention from various domains such as computational biology, machine learning, and data mining. Cancer patients respond differently to each cancer therapy owing to disease diversity, genetic factors, and environmental causes.(More)
Programs based on hash tables and Burrows-Wheeler are very fast for mapping short reads to genomes but have low accuracy in the presence of mismatches and gaps. Such reads can be aligned accurately with the Smith-Waterman algorithm but it can take hours and days to map millions of reads even for bacteria genomes. We introduce a GPU program called MaxSSmap(More)
Gene regulation is a series of processes that control gene expression and its extent. The connections among genes and their regulatory molecules, usually transcription factors, and a descriptive model of such connections are known as gene regulatory networks (GRNs). Elucidating GRNs is crucial to understand the inner workings of the cell and the complexity(More)
Supervised methods for inferring gene regulatory networks (GRNs) perform well with good training data. However, when training data is absent, these methods are not applicable. Unsupervised methods do not need training data but their accuracy is low. In this paper, we combine supervised and unsupervised methods to infer GRNs using time-series gene expression(More)
