    Dotan-Cohen, Dikla; Kasif, Simon; Melkman, Avraham A. (Oxford University Press, 2009-6-3)
    Motivation: There is a growing interest in improving the cluster analysis of expression data by incorporating into it prior knowledge, such as the Gene Ontology (GO) annotations of genes, in order to improve the biological ...
  • Biological Context Networks: A Mosaic View of the Interactome 

    Rachlin, John; Cohen, Dikla Dotan; Cantor, Charles; Kasif, Simon (2006-11-28)
    Network models are a fundamental tool for the visualization and analysis of molecular interactions occurring in biological systems. While broadly illuminating the molecular machinery of the cell, graphical representations ...
  • MuPlex: Multi-Objective Multiplex PCR Assay Design 

    Rachlin, John; Ding, Chunming; Cantor, Charles; Kasif, Simon (Oxford University Press, 2005-06-27)
    We have developed a web-enabled system called MuPlex that aids researchers in the design of multiplex PCR assays. Multiplex PCR is a key technology for an endless list of applications, including detecting infectious ...
  • VisANT 3.5: Multi-Scale Network Visualization, Analysis and Inference Based on the Gene Ontology 

    Hu, Zhenjun; Hung, Jui-Hung; Wang, Yan; Chang, Yi-Chien; Huang, Chia-Ling; Huyck, Matt; DeLisi, Charles (2009-7-1)
    Despite its wide usage in biological databases and applications, the role of the gene ontology (GO) in network analysis is usually limited to functional annotation of genes or gene sets with auxiliary information on ...
  • Phylogenetic Detection of Conserved Gene Clusters in Microbial Genomes 

    Zheng, Yu; Anton, Brian P.; Roberts, Richard J.; Kasif, Simon (BioMed Central, 2005-10-3)
    BACKGROUND. Microbial genomes contain an abundance of genes with conserved proximity forming clusters on the chromosome. However, the conservation can be a result of many factors such as vertical inheritance, or functional ...
  • Portraits of Breast Cancer Progression 

    Dalgin, Gul S.; Alexe, Gabriela; Scanfeld, Daniel; Tamayo, Pablo; Mesirov, Jill P.; Ganesan, Shridar; DeLisi, Charles; Bhanot, Gyan (BioMed Central, 2007-8-6)
    BACKGROUND. Clustering analysis of microarray data is often criticized for giving ambiguous results because of sensitivity to data perturbation or clustering techniques used. In this paper, we describe a new method based ...
  • Network-Based Analysis of Affected Biological Processes in Type 2 Diabetes Models 

    Liu, Manway; Liberzon, Arthur; Kong, Sek Won; Lai, Weil R.; Park, Peter J.; Kohane, Isaac S.; Kasif, Simon (Public Library of SCience, 2007-6-15)
    Type 2 diabetes mellitus is a complex disorder associated with multiple genetic, epigenetic, developmental, and environmental factors. Animal models of type 2 diabetes differ based on diet, drug treatment, and gene knockouts, ...
