  • Yakovchuk, Peter; Protozanova, Ekaterina; Frank-Kamenetskii, Maxim D. (Oxford University Press, 2006-01-31)
    Two factors are mainly responsible for the stability of the DNA double helix: base pairing between complementary strands and stacking between adjacent bases. By studying DNA molecules with solitary nicks and gaps we measure ...
  • Reddy, Timothy E; DeLisi, Charles; Shakhnovich, Boris E (Public Library of Science, 2007-5-11)
    Computational prediction of nucleotide binding specificity for transcription factors remains a fundamental and largely unsolved problem. Determination of binding positions is a prerequisite for research in gene regulation, ...
  • Rachlin, John; Cohen, Dikla Dotan; Cantor, Charles; Kasif, Simon (2006-11-28)
    Network models are a fundamental tool for the visualization and analysis of molecular interactions occurring in biological systems. While broadly illuminating the molecular machinery of the cell, graphical representations ...
  • Dotan-Cohen, Dikla; Letovsky, Stan; Melkman, Avraham A.; Kasif, Simon (Public Library of Science, 2009-4-23)
    BACKGROUND. The traditional approach to studying complex biological networks is based on the identification of interactions between internal components of signaling or metabolic pathways. By comparison, little is known ...
  • Lun, Desmond S; Sherrid, Ashley; Weiner, Brian; Sherman, David R; Galagan, James E (BioMed Central, 2009-12-22)
    CSdeconv is a novel method for determining the location of transcription factor binding from ChIP-seq data that discriminates closely-spaced sites. We present CSDeconv, a computational method that determines locations of ...
  • Lehár, Joseph; Zimmermann, Grant R; Krueger, Andrew S; Molnar, Raymond A; Ledell, Jebediah T; Heilbut, Adrian M; Short, Glenn F; Giusti, Leanne C; Nolan, Garry P; Magid, Omar A; Lee, Margaret S; Borisy, Alexis A; Stockwell, Brent R; Keith, Curtis T (2007-02-27)
    Efforts to construct therapeutically useful models of biological systems require large and diverse sets of data on functional connections between their components. Here we show that cellular responses to combinations of ...
  • Owens, Christopher M; Mawhinney, Christina; Grenier, Jill M; Altmeyer, Ralf; Lee, Margaret S; Borisy, Alexis A; Lehár, Joseph; Johansen, Lisa M (Nature Publishing Group, 2010-06-08)
    The search for effective Hepatitis C antiviral therapies has recently focused on host sterol metabolism and protein prenylation pathways that indirectly affect viral replication. However, inhibition of the sterol pathway ...
  • Roberts, Richard J.; Chang, Yi-Chien; Hu, Zhenjun; Rachlin, John N.; Anton, Brian P.; Pokrzywa, Revonda M.; Choi, Han-Pil; Faller, Lina L.; Guleria, Jyotsna; Housman, Genevieve; Klitgord, Niels; Mazumdar, Varun; McGettrick, Mark G.; Osmani, Lais; Swaminathan, Rajeswari; Tao, Kevin R.; Letovsky, Stan; Vitkup, Dennis; Segrè, Daniel; Salzberg, Steven L.; Delisi, Charles; Steffen, Martin; Kasif, Simon (2010-11-20)
    COMBREX (http://combrex.bu.edu) is a project to increase the speed of the functional annotation of new bacterial and archaeal genomes. It consists of a database of functional predictions produced by computational biologists ...
  • Snitkin, Evan S; Gustafson, Adam M; Mellor, Joseph; Wu, Jie; DeLisi, Charles (BioMed Central, 2006-9-27)
    BACKGROUND. The rapidly increasing speed with which genome sequence data can be generated will be accompanied by an exponential increase in the number of sequenced eukaryotes. With the increasing number of sequenced ...
  • Champion, Mia D.; Zeng, Qiandong; Nix, Eli B.; Nano, Francis E.; Keim, Paul; Kodira, Chinnappa D.; Borowsky, Mark; Young, Sarah; Koehrsen, Michael; Engels, Reinhard; Pearson, Matthew; Howarth, Clint; Larson, Lisa; White, Jared; Alvarado, Lucia; Forsman, Mats; Bearden, Scott W.; Sjöstedt, Anders; Titball, Richard; Michell, Stephen L.; Birren, Bruce; Galagan, James (Public Library of Science Pathogens, 2009-5-29)
    Tularemia is a geographically widespread, severely debilitating, and occasionally lethal disease in humans. It is caused by infection by a gram-negative bacterium, Francisella tularensis. In order to better understand its ...
  • Wu, Jie; Xie, Xiaohui (BioMed Central, 2006-09-26)
    Using comparative sequence analysis, a network among REST, CREB and brain-related miRNAs is propsed to mediate neuronal gene expression. BACKGROUND. Two distinct classes of regulators have been implicated in regulating ...
  • Spencer, Jean L.; Bernanke, Joel A.; Buczek-Thomas, Jo Ann; Nugent, Matthew A. (Public Library of Science, 2010-2-23)
    BACKGROUND. Increasing evidence has revealed important roles for complex glycans as mediators of normal and pathological processes. Glycosaminoglycans are a class of glycans that bind and regulate the function of a wide ...
  • Rachlin, John; Ding, Chunming; Cantor, Charles; Kasif, Simon (BioMed Central, 2005-7-25)
    BACKGROUND: Multiplex PCR is a key technology for detecting infectious microorganisms, whole-genome sequencing, forensic analysis, and for enabling flexible yet low-cost genotyping. However, the design of a multiplex PCR ...
  • Lee, Shane; Sen, Kamal; Kopell, Nancy (Public Library of Science, 2009-12-11)
    Spike timing dependent plasticity (STDP) has been observed experimentally in vitro and is a widely studied neural algorithm for synaptic modification. While the functional role of STDP has been investigated extensively, ...
  • Alexe, G.; Dalgin, G.S.; Ramaswamy, R.; DeLisi, C.; Bhanot, G. (Libertas Academica, 2007-2-19)
    Molecular stratification of disease based on expression levels of sets of genes can help guide therapeutic decisions if such classifications can be shown to be stable against variations in sample source and data perturbation. ...
