Discovery of widespread transcription initiation at microsatellites predictable by sequence-based deep neural network
The results extend the repertoire of non-coding transcription associated with DNA tandem repeats and complexify STR polymorphism, and predicted that genetic variants linked to human diseases affect STR-associated transcription and correspond precisely to the key positions identified by the models to predict transcription.
Is it time to stop sweeping data cleaning under the carpet? A novel algorithm for outlier management in growth data
- Medicine, Computer SciencePloS one
A decision-making algorithm that modified or deleted growth measurements based on a combination of pre-defined cut-offs and logic rules was designed, which improved the performance of all data cleaning methods and increased the average sensitivity and specificity of the non-linear mixed effects model method by 7.68% and 0.42% respectively.
