- The prediction of bacterial transcription start sites using SVMsMichael W Towsey
Faculty of Information Technology, Queensland University of Technology, GPO Box 2434, Brisbane, Queensland 4001, Australia
Int J Neural Syst 16:363-70. 2006..We also describe a more broadly applicable peak scoring technique which reduces the number of false positive predictions, greatly enhancing the utility of our results...
- The in silico prediction of promoters in bacterial genomesMichael Towsey
Institute for Health and Biomedical Innovation, Queensland University of Technology, Queensland, Australia
Genome Inform 19:178-89. 2007..We also demonstrate for the first time, that sigma-54 promoters have a stronger association with SIDD than do other promoter types...
- The cross-species prediction of bacterial promoters using a support vector machineMichael Towsey
School of Life Sciences, Faculty of Science, Queensland University of Queensland, Brisbane, Queensland, Australia
Comput Biol Chem 32:359-66. 2008..We found a strong -35 hexamer and TGN/-10 associated with a set of early expressed genes. Our analysis highlights the advantage of using TSS-PREDICT as a starting point for predicting promoters in species where few are known...
