Validation of double digest selective label database for sequenced prokaryotic genomes

Validation of double digest selective label database for sequenced prokaryotic genomes - Summary: A database for simulation of double digest selective label (DDSL) typing technique has been created and validated against a sequenced strain (Salmonella enterica serovar Typhimurium strain LT2).

DR-Integrator: a new analytic tool for integrating DNA copy number and gene expression data

DR-Integrator: a new analytic tool for integrating DNA copy number and gene expression data - Summary: DNA copy number alterations (CNA) frequently underlie gene expression changes by increasing or decreasing gene dosage.

PCIT: an R package for weighted gene co-expression networks based on partial correlation and information theory approaches

Fortunately, R package developers finally got to the problem of parallel computations. An excerpt (below) from a recent Bioinformatics article is a good illustration.

webMGR: an online tool for the multiple genome rearrangement problem

webMGR: an online tool for the multiple genome rearrangement problem - Summary: The algorithm MGR enables the reconstruction of rearrangement phylogenies based on gene or synteny block order in multiple genomes.

Tmod: toolbox of motif discovery

Tmod: toolbox of motif discovery - Summary: Motif discovery is an important topic in computational transcriptional regulation studies.

Accurate recognition of cis-regulatory motifs with the correct lengths in prokaryotic genomes

Accurate recognition of cis-regulatory motifs with the correct lengths in prokaryotic genomes - We present a new computational method for solving a classical problem, the identification problem of cis-regulatory motifs in a given set of promoter sequences, based on one key new idea.
