Volume 9 Supplement 1

Quantitative inference of gene function from diverse large-scale datasets


Edited by Timothy R Hughes and Frederick P Roth

  1. Content type: Research

    Several years after sequencing the human genome and the mouse genome, much remains to be discovered about the functions of most human and mouse genes. Computational prediction of gene function promises to help...

  4. Content type: Method

    The complete set of mouse genes, as with the set of human genes, is still largely uncharacterized, with many pieces of experimental evidence accumulating regarding the activities and expression of the genes, b...

  5. Content type: Method

    In predicting hierarchical protein function annotations, such as terms in the Gene Ontology (GO), the simplest approach makes predictions for each term independently. However, this approach has the unfortunate...

  6. Content type: Method

    Learning the function of genes is a major goal of computational genomics. Methods for inferring gene function have typically fallen into two categories: 'guilt-by-profiling', which exploits correlation between...
