Development and validation of ferroptosis-related lncRNAs signature for hepatocellular carcinoma
Jesús Campos-García –– The manuscript shows important findings for hepatocarcinoma monitoring and treatment.
An optimized transfer learning-based approach for automatic diagnosis of COVID-19 from chest x-ray images
Ketan Kotecha –– useful in recent covid times
Bioinformatics analysis for the identification of differentially expressed genes and related signaling pathways in H. pylori-CagA transfected gastric cancer cells
Alexander Bolshoy –– H. pylori is a very important interesting organism and all new knowledge is valuable.
ZebraShare: a new venue for rapid dissemination of zebrafish mutant data
Mason Posner –– Zebrashare will be a valuable resource for the large and growing zebrafish research community to share gene edited mutants and collaborate on follow up studies. This crowdsourcing of mutants, built right into ZFIN, will help prevent redundant work and facilitate sharing of data.
Characterization of the GRAS gene family reveals their contribution to the high adaptability of wheat
Alexander Bolshoy –– GRAS gene family is very important in plants. This study promotes research in the field.
Syncmers are more sensitive than minimizers for selecting conserved k‑mers in biological sequences
Joseph Gillespie –– In this novel work, Dr. Edgar makes a significant advance on using k-mer selection for sequence analysis: selected k-mers act as seeds for sequence matching, with generated "syncmers" having attractive properties of minimizers without having to depend on neighboring sequence.
MKL-GRNI: A parallel multiple kernel learning approach for supervised inference of large-scale gene regulatory networks
Othman Soufan –– This work highlighted a novel approach to infer the gene regulatory network in a scalable manner and while addressing heterogeneous sources of information.
Gene signatures with predictive and prognostic survival values in human osteosarcoma
Zekiye Altun –– This manuscript has contain new data about osteosaacoma according to bioinformatic data. It suggests 20 genes signature for diagnostic and prognostic purposes for OS. This data can be useful for clinicans and basic researchers in this area.
Digital Cell Sorter (DCS): a cell type identification, anomaly detection, and Hopfield landscapes toolkit for single-cell transcriptomics
Zhaohui Qin –– A software of potential wide adoption.
Dnajb8, a target gene of SOX30, is dispensable for male fertility in mice
Gary Wessel –– This work clarifies an important and conserved gene function
