The phytohormone ethylene is involved in a wide range of developmental processes and in mediating plant responses to biotic and abiotic stresses. Ethylene signalling acts via a linear transduction pathway leading to the activation of Ethylene Response Factor genes (ERF) which represent one of the largest gene families of plant transcription factors. How an(More)
BACKGROUND The identification of genes responsible for human inherited diseases is one of the most challenging tasks in human genetics. Recent studies based on phenotype similarity and gene proximity have demonstrated great success in prioritizing candidate genes for human diseases. However, most of these methods rely on a single protein-protein interaction(More)
— Recent advances in highly parallel, multithreaded, manycore Graphics Processing Units (GPUs) have been enabling massive parallel implementations of many applications in bioinformatics. In this paper, we describe a parallel implementation of genome-wide association studies (GWAS) using Compute Unified Device Architecture (CUDA). Using a single NVIDIA GTX(More)
BACKGROUND Domains are basic units of proteins, and thus exploring associations between protein domains and human inherited diseases will greatly improve our understanding of the pathogenesis of human complex diseases and further benefit the medical prevention, diagnosis and treatment of these diseases. Within a given domain-domain interaction network, we(More)
—The combined use of gene expression profiles and protein-protein interaction (PPI) networks has recently shed light on breast cancer research by selecting a small number of subnetworks as disease markers and then using them for the classification of metastasis. Based on previously identified subnetwork markers, we compare three ensemble learning approaches(More)
Chinese medicinal herbs have a similar appearance and are easily confused, complicating identification via traditional methods. This study provided a scientific approach, based on DNA barcoding, to accurately and rapidly identify Anoectochilus roxburghii and its adulterants. This technology complements traditional methods of identification of medicinal(More)
Protein domains can be viewed as portable units of biological function that defines the functional properties of proteins. Therefore, if a protein is associated with a disease, protein domains might also be associated and define disease endophenotypes. However, knowledge about such domain-disease relationships is rarely available. Thus, identification of(More)
OATAO is an open access repository that collects the work of Toulouse researchers and makes it freely available over the web where possible. Functional analysis and binding affinity of tomato ethylene response factors provide insight on the molecular bases of plant differential responses to ethylene. Abstract Background
