    It is well known that protein secondary-structure information can help the process of performing multiple alignment, in particular when the amount of similarity among the involved sequences moves toward the "twilight zone" (less than 30% of pairwise similarity). In this paper, a multiple alignment algorithm is presented, explicitly designed for exploiting any available secondary-structure informat... View full abstract»

    Many tools have been developed for visualization of RNA secondary structures using a variety of techniques and output formats. However, each tool is typically limited to one or two of the visualization models discussed in this paper, supports only a single file format, and is tied to a specific platform. In order for structure prediction researchers to better understand the results of their algori... View full abstract»

    This paper presents a fully parallel version of RnaPredict, a genetic algorithm (GA) for RNA secondary structure prediction. The research presented here builds on previous work and examines the impact of three different pseudorandom number generators (PRNGs) on the GA's performance. The three generators tested are the C standard library PRNG RAND, a parallelized multiplicative congruential generat... View full abstract»

    This paper proposes a new feature selection method that uses a backward elimination procedure similar to that implemented in support vector machine recursive feature elimination (SVM-RFE). Unlike the SVM-RFE method, at each step, the proposed approach computes the feature ranking score from a statistical analysis of weight vectors of multiple linear SVMs trained on subsamples of the original train...

    Cytolytic toxin Cyt1A from Bacillus thuringiensis var. israelensis is used as an environmentally friendly insecticide, but its mode of action has not been clearly established. One main obstacle seems to be the lack of the experimentally determined structure of the toxin. As a first step in computer simulations of Cyt1A, in this paper, a three-dimensional molecular structure of Cyt1A in solution wa... View full abstract»

    Peptides in the skin secretion of frogs have been studied for some time now because they frequently possess important biological activity such as antibiotic, antimicrobial, or anticancer properties. In this paper, we present a computational approach for measuring the degree of similarity between the entire peptide complement of the skin secretion of specimens from the same or different species. Th... View full abstract»

    A stochastic model of the DNA microarray image pixels is presented. The model includes spot pixel intensity distribution, interpixel correlations and the intensity distribution of background noise. The data is indicative of a small exponential additive noise process and a larger Gaussian fluctuation that scales with spot intensity. Correlations are observed among pixels in the spot and between tes... View full abstract»

  • Improved K-means clustering algorithm for exploring local protein sequence motifs representing common structural property

    Information about local protein sequence motifs is very important to the analysis of biologically significant conserved regions of protein sequences. These conserved regions can potentially determine the diverse conformation and activities of proteins. In this work, recurring sequence motifs of proteins are explored with an improved K-means clustering algorithm on a new dataset. The structural sim... View full abstract»
