The 3D chromatin structure modeling by chromatin interactions derived from Hi-C experiments is significantly challenged by the intrinsic sequencing biases in these experiments. Conventional modeling methods only focus on the bias among different chromatin regions within the same experiment but neglect the bias arising from different experimental sequencing(More)
Both recent studies and our calculation suggest that the physicochemical properties of launched drugs changed continuously over the past decades. Besides shifting of commonly used properties, the average biological relevance (BR) and similarity to natural products (NPs) of launched drugs decreased, reflecting the fact that current drug discovery deviated(More)
Computational prediction of RNA-binding residues is helpful in uncovering the mechanisms underlying protein-RNA interactions. Traditional algorithms individually applied feature- or template-based prediction strategy to recognize these crucial residues, which could restrict their predictive power. To improve RNA-binding residue prediction, herein we propose(More)
The complex microbiome of the gut has an enormous impact on human health. Analysis of the transcriptional activity of microorganisms through mRNA sequencing (metatranscriptomics) opens a completely new window into their activity in vivo, but it is highly challenging due to numerous technical and bioinformatical obstacles. Here we present an optimized(More)
We determined the taxonomic composition of the bacterioplankton of the epipelagic zone of the Atlantic Ocean along a latitudinal transect (51°S-47°N) using Illumina sequencing of the V5-V6 region of the 16S rRNA gene and inferred co-occurrence networks. Bacterioplankon community composition was distinct for Longhurstian provinces and water depth.(More)
In order to determine the influence of geographical distance, depth, and Longhurstian province on bacterial community composition and compare it with the composition of photosynthetic micro-eukaryote communities, 382 samples from a depth-resolved latitudinal transect (51°S-47°N) from the epipelagic zone of the Atlantic ocean were analyzed by Illumina(More)
