Extended and Robust Protein Sequence Annotation over Conservative Nonhierarchical Clusters: The Case Study of the ABC Transporters
Damiano Piovesan, Giuseppe Profiti, Pier Luigi Martelli, Piero Fariselli, Rita Casadio
Article No.: 27
DOI: 10.1145/2504729

Genome annotation is one of the most important issues in the genomic era. The exponential growth rate of newly sequenced genomes and proteomes urges the development of fast and reliable annotation methods, suited to exploit all the information...

Integration of Literature with Heterogeneous Information for Genes Correlation Scoring
Francesco Abate, Andrea Acquaviva, Elisa Ficarra, Enrico Macii
Article No.: 28
DOI: 10.1145/2504728

Determining the correlation between biomedical terms is a powerful instrument to help scientist research activity, both to understand experimental results and to design new ones. In particular, a great potential comes from the integration of the...

A Hardware Viewpoint on Biosequence Analysis: What’s Next?
Mariagrazia Graziano, Stefano Frache, Maurizio Zamboni
Article No.: 29
DOI: 10.1145/2504774

Biosequence alignment recently received an increasing support from both commodity and dedicated hardware platforms. Processing capabilities are constantly rising, but still not satisfying the limitless requirements of this application. We give an...

Synthetic Biology and Microdevices: A Powerful Combination
Lyn Venken, Kathleen Marchal, Jos Vanderleyden
Article No.: 30
DOI: 10.1145/2504775

Recent developments demonstrate that the combination of microbiology with micro- and nanoelectronics is a successful approach to develop new miniaturized sensing devices and other technologies. In the last decade, there has been a shift from the...
