The performances of PFP, ESG, and PSI-BLAST in predicting the functional diversity of moonlighting proteins were analyzed. PFP shows overall better performance in predicting diverse moonlighting functions as compared with PSI-BLAST and ESG. Recall by PSI-B...
BACKGROUND: A new paradigm of biological investigation takes advantage of technologies that produce large high throughput datasets, including genome sequences, interactions of proteins, and gene expression. The ability of biologists to analyze and interpre...
Optimizing weighting factors for a linear combination of terms in a scoring function is a crucial step for success in developing a threading algorithm. Usually weighting factors are optimized to yield the highest success rate on a training dataset, and the...
Aligning distantly related protein sequences is a long-standing problem in bioinformatics, and a key for successful protein structure prediction. Its importance is increasing recently in the context of structural genomics projects because more and more exp...
In recent years, various families of small non-coding RNAs (sRNAs) have been discovered by experimental and computational approaches, both in bacterial and eukaryotic genomes. Although most of them await elucidation of their function, it has been reported...
Experimentally determined protein tertiary structures are rapidly accumulating in a database, partly due to the structural genomics projects. Included are proteins of unknown function, whose function has not been investigated by experiments and was not abl...

The Information Seeking, Evaluation, Application, and Documentation (InfoSEAD) protocol was developed to assess four areas of student information skills. '''Seeking:''' measuring the quantity and variety of information sources used...
We investigate experimentally the functional relationship between capillary pressure, Pc, wetting phase saturation, Sw, and interfacial area per volume between the wetting and nonwetting phases, awn, for drainage and imbibition processes in micromodels of...
Experiments were performed on transparent two-dimensional microfluidic porous systems to investigate the relationships among capillary pressure and the interfacial areas per volume between two fluid phases and one solid phase. Capillary pressures were calc...
