  • DIFFERENT FINGERPRINTS FEATURES COMBINATION FOR PRIVACY AND PROTECTION
    Swapnali V Mandle*, S S Bidwai    Download Full Text

    In recent days, biometrics technologies are showing huge importance in various applications. Biometric fingerprint recognition is considered as one of the most reliable technologies and has been extensively used in personal identification. Finger prints have wide variation since no two people have identical fingerprints. Fingerprints are unique because of their features. By extracting features fro...

  • NETWORK COMPLETION FOR STATIC GENE EXPRESSION DATA
    Natsu Nakajima, Tatsuya Akutsu    Download Full Text

    We tackle the problem of completing and inferring genetic networks under stationary conditions from static data, where network completion is to make the minimum amount of modifications to an initial network so that the completed network is most consistent with the expression data in which addition of edges and deletion of edges are basic modification operations. For this problem, we present a new ...

  • OBJECTIVE AND COMPREHENSIVE EVALUATION OF BISULFITE SHORT READ MAPPING TOOLS
    Hong Tran, Jacob Porter, Ming-an Sun, Hehuang Xie, Liqing Zhang    Download Full Text

    Background. Large-scale bisulfite treatment and short reads sequencing technology allow comprehensive estimation of methylation states of Cs in the genomes of different tissues, cell types, and developmental stages. Accurate characterization of DNA methylation is essential for understanding genotype phenotype association, gene and environment interaction, diseases, and cancer. Aligning bisulfite s...

  • SECONDARY STRUCTURE PREFERENCES OF MN2+ BINDING SITES IN BACTERIAL PROTEINS
    Tatyana Aleksandrovna Khrustaleva    Download Full Text

    3D structures of proteins with coordinated Mn2+ ions from bacteria with low, average, and high genomic GC-content have been analyzed (149 PDB files were used).MajorMn2+ binders are aspartic acid (6.82% ofAsp residues), histidine (14.76% ofHis residues), and glutamic acid (3.51% of Glu residues).We found out that the motif of secondary structure “beta strand-major binder-random coil” is overrep...

  • PREDICTION OF B-CELL EPITOPES IN LISTERIOLYSIN O, A CHOLESTEROL DEPENDENT CYTOLYSIN SECRETED BY LISTERIA MONOCYTOGENES
    Morris S Jones, J Mark Carter    Download Full Text

    Listeria monocytogenes is a gram-positive, foodborne bacterium responsible for disease in humans and animals. Listeriolysin O (LLO) is a required virulence factor for the pathogenic effects of L. monocytogenes. Bioinformatics revealed conserved putative epitopes of LLO that could be used to develop monoclonal antibodies against LLO. Continuous and discontinuous epitopes were located by using four ...

  • A PARALLEL FRAMEWORK FOR MULTIPOINT SPIRAL SEARCH IN AB INITIO PROTEIN STRUCTURE PREDICTION
    Mahmood A Rashid, Swakkhar Shatabda, M A Hakim Newton, Md Tamjidul Hoque, Abdul Sattar    Download Full Text

    Protein structure prediction is computationally a very challenging problem. A large number of existing search algorithms attempt to solve the problem by exploring possible structures and finding the one with the minimum free energy.However, these algorithms perform poorly on large sized proteins due to an astronomically wide search space. In this paper, we present a multipoint spiral search framew...
