    Wei Li
    Department of Computer Science and Engineering, University of California, Riverside, Riverside CA 92507, USA
    Bioinformatics 28:2914-21. 2012
    ..Much effort has been made in the literature to calibrate the expression level estimation from biased RNA-Seq data, but the effect of biases on transcriptome assembly remains largely unexplored...
  2. pmc IsoLasso: a LASSO regression approach to RNA-Seq based transcriptome assembly
    Wei Li
    Department of Computer Science and Engineering, University of California, Riverside, Riverside, CA 92507, USA
    J Comput Biol 18:1693-707. 2011
    ..Experiments on simulated and real RNA-Seq datasets show that IsoLasso achieves, simultaneously, higher sensitivity and precision than the state-of-art transcript assembly tools...
  3. pmc Experimental verification of the identity of variant-specific surface proteins in Giardia lamblia trophozoites
    Wei Li
    Department of Pharmaceutical Chemistry, University of California, San Francisco, CA, USA
    MBio 4:e00321-13. 2013
    ..By these criteria, 73 genes are identified in the Giardia WB strain genome database as the putative repertoire of VSPs...

    Liguo Wang
    Division of Biomedical Statistics and Informatics, Mayo Clinic College of Medicine, Rochester, MN 55905, USA
    Nucleic Acids Res 41:e74. 2013
    ..The software accepts input sequences in either FASTA- or BED-formatted data files. We also developed a web interface for CPAT that allows users to submit sequences and receive the prediction results almost instantly...

    Wei Li
    Department of Pharmaceutical Chemistry, University of California, San Francisco, CA 94158 2280, USA
    Cell Microbiol 14:1455-73. 2012
    ..Of the total 220 vsp genes in Giardia, we have now found 178 of them carrying putative binding sites for all the miRNAs that have been currently identified, suggesting that miRNAs are likely the regulators of VSP expression in Giardia...
