- Promzea: a pipeline for discovery of co-regulatory motifs in maize and other plant species and its application to the anthocyanin and phlobaphene biosynthetic pathways and the Maize Development AtlasChristophe Liseron-Monfils
Department of Plant Agriculture, University of Guelph, Guelph, Ontario, Canada
BMC Plant Biol 13:42. 2013..The recent release of the maize genome (Zea mays L.) has facilitated in silico searches for regulatory motifs. Several algorithms exist to predict cis-acting elements, but none have been adapted for maize...
- On the synthesis of DNA error correcting codesDaniel Ashlock
Department of Mathematics and Statistics, University of Guelph, Guelph, Ontario, Canada
Biosystems 110:1-8. 2012..Mathematical background results for the problem from multiple sources are summarized. A discussion of practical details that arise in application, including biological design and decoding, is also given in this study...
- Evolution and instability in ring species complexes: an in silico approach to the study of speciationDaniel Ashlock
Department of Mathematics and Statistics, MacNaughton Building, University of Guelph, 50 Stone Road East, Guelph, Ontario, Canada N1G 2W1
J Theor Biol 264:1202-13. 2010..Using a problem with a simple fitness landscape, the K-max problem, ring species do not form. Instead, speciation around the ring occurs before ring closure as good genotypes become locally dominant...
- MULTI-K: accurate classification of microarray subtypes using ensemble k-means clusteringEun Youn Kim
National Institute for Mathematical Sciences NIMS, Yuseong, Daejeon 305 340, Republic of Korea
BMC Bioinformatics 10:260. 2009..However, most existing methods focus on clusters with compact shapes and do not reflect the geometric complexity of the high dimensional microarray clusters, which limits their performance...
