In this work, we introduce a new method for fold recognition using composite secondary structures assembled from different secondary structure prediction servers for a given target sequence. An automatic, complete, and robust way of finding all possible combinations of predicted secondary structure segments (SSS) for the target sequence and clustering them(More)
S U M M A R Y This study applies high-resolution Radon transform to a large set of SS precursors and explores the mantle reflectivity structure beneath 17 potentially ‘deep-rooted’ hotspots. The combined reduced time (τ ) and ray parameter (p) information effectively constrains the depth, spatial distribution and sharpness of upper-/mid-mantle reflectors.(More)
We present a novel approach to protein structure prediction in which fold recognition techniques are combined with ab initio folding methods. Based on the predicted secondary structure, one of two different protocols is followed. For mostly alpha proteins, global optimization and sampling of a statistical energy function is used to generate many low-energy(More)
Numerous regression-based and machine learning techniques are available for the development of linear and nonlinear QSAR models that can accurately predict biological endpoints. Such tools can be quite powerful in the hands of an experienced modeler, but too frequently a disconnect remains between the modeler and project chemist because the resulting QSAR(More)
Dissecting the genetic basis for the traits of northern-style Chinese steamed bread (NCSB) is of great significance for wheat quality breeding. Quantitative trait loci (QTLs) for the processing quality of NCSB were studied using a recombinant inbred line (RIL) consisting of 173 lines derived from a “Shannong01–35 × Gaocheng9411” cross. Twenty-four putative(More)
Compound libraries comprise an integral component of drug discovery in the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries. While in-house libraries often contain millions of molecules, this number pales in comparison to the accessible space of drug-like molecules. Therefore, care must be taken when adding new compounds to an existing library in order to ensure(More)
