The optimal selection of a natural reserve (OSRN) is an optimisation problem with a binary domain. To solve this problem the metaheuristic algorithm Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO) has been chosen. The PSO algorithm has been designed to solve problems in real...

The process of inferring a full haplotype of a cell is known as haplotyping, which consists in assigning all heterozygous Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms (SNPs) to exactly one of the two chromosomes. In this work, we propose a novel computational method for haplotype...

Data mining is one of the main activities in bioinformatics, specifically to extract knowledge from massive data sets related with gene expression measurement, CNV, DNA strings, and others. A long array of methods are used to perform such task, ranging from the...

The man-machine integration era (MMIE) is marked by sensor ubiquity, whose readings map human beings to finite numbers. These numbers processed by continuously changing, optimizing/learning, finite precision, closed loop, distributed systems are used to drive decisions...

Time-series are an important aspect of environmental modelling, and are becoming more available through the requirements of the water framework directive as well as more important with the advancement of numerical simulation techniques and increased model complexity....

We consider the problem of detecting and quantifying the periodic component of a function given noise-corrupted observations of a limited number of input/output tuples. Our approach is based on Gaussian process regression which provides a flexible non-parametric...

An object-oriented computational framework for the transformation of colour data and colour metric tensors is presented. The main idea of the design is to represent the transforms between spaces as compositions of objects from a class hierarchy providing the methods...

The set \(S\) of \(\left(\frac{N}{2^i}\right)\)-distance graphs of order \(N\) cycle graphs \(\mathbb{C}_N\) is defined here as \[S = \left\{ s_i= \bigcup_1^{\frac{N}{2^i}} \mathbb{C}_{2^i} \quad\Bigg\vert\quad i=1,2, \dots, \log N\right\},\] where w.o.l.o.g. \(N=2^k\),...

Whole genome bisulfite sequencing (WGBS) is the current method of choice to obtain the methylation status of each single CpG dinucleotide in a genome. The typical analysis asks for regions that are differentially methylated (DMRs) between samples of two classes,...

The biggest cost of computing with large matrices in any modern computer is related to memory latency and bandwidth. The average latency of modern RAM reads is 150 times greater than a clock step of the processor (Alted, 2010). Throughput is a little better but...

I told my colleagues that PeerJ is a journal where they need to publish if they want their paper to be published quickly and with the strict peer review expected from a good journal.
