Vol. 15, No. 7TargetM6A: Identifying N6-Methyladenosine Sites From RNA Sequences via Position-Specific Nucleotide Propensities and a Support Vector Machine
As one of the most ubiquitous post-transcriptional modifications of RNA, N6-methyladenosine ( m 6 A ) plays an essential role in many vital biological processes. The identification of m 6 A sites in RNAs is significantly important for…
Vol. 15, No. 7Comprehensive Reactive Receiver Modeling for Diffusive Molecular Communication Systems: Reversible Binding, Molecule Degradation, and Finite Number of Receptors
This paper studies the problem of receiver modeling in molecular communication systems. We consider the diffusive molecular communication channel between a transmitter nano-machine and a receiver nano-machine in a fluid environment.
Vol. 15, No. 6Analysis of Current Pulses in HeLa-Cell Permeabilization Due to High Voltage DC Corona Discharge
Corona discharges are commonly utilized for numerous practical applications, including bio-technological ones. The corona induced transfer of normally impermeant molecules into the interior of biological cells…
Vol. 15, No. 6Concentration-Encoded Subdiffusive Molecular Communication: Theory, Channel Characteristics, and Optimum Signal Detection
Unlike normal diffusion, in anomalous diffusion, the movement of a molecule is described by the correlated random walk model where the mean square displacement of a molecule depends on the power law of time.
Vol. 15, No. 6Block-Constraint Robust Principal Component Analysis and its Application to Integrated Analysis of TCGA Data
The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA) dataset provides us more opportunities to systematically and comprehensively learn some biological mechanism of cancers formation, growth and metastasis.
Vol. 15, No. 5Implementing Nonlinear Feedback Controllers Using DNA Strand Displacement Reactions
We show how an important class of nonlinear feedback controllers can be designed using idealized abstract chemical reactions and implemented via DNA strand displacement (DSD) reactions.
