The fast development of genome sequencing technologies has provided scientists with enormous amount of DNA sequences that keep increasing exponentially. The task of analyzing these DNA sequences and deducing useful knowledge from them remains challenging. One of the most important steps towards the understanding of genomes is gene prediction, which is determining the positions of genes and their components (including exons and introns) on the DNA sequence. There have been many attempts on computational gene prediction. The two main categories of gene prediction methods are Ab initio methods and homology-based methods. The Ab initio methods are usually sensitive in finding genes in novel genomes but often produce many false positives. The homology-based methods, on the other hand, usually have higher specificity, but are limited to finding genes that have homologous partners. With the accumulation of genome sequences of related species, there has been a growing demand for better and faster homology-based gene prediction programs. In this thesis, I present a homology-based gene prediction framework that utilizes protein homology in determining positions of protein-coding genes. A protein sequence (the product of gene) is used as a query to help in finding genes that are homologous to the query protein. The framework consists of two major components. First, local alignments between the query protein and the genome are assembled into gene regions where potential homologous genes are located. Next, each potential gene region is examined for gene signals and gene models are resolved by utilizing the alignment information provided by the local alignments. The experiments on genomes of two closely related species Caenorhabditis elegans and Caenorhabditis briggsae demonstrated that this method is both accurate and efficient. In particular, it runs hundreds of times faster than GeneWise, a popular homology-based gene prediction program, while being competitive in accuracy. Experiments have also been done on the human genome with a much larger size than C. elegans and C. briggsae, which showed similar performance behaviours of genBlast.

Continuing advances in biomedical research and statistical methods call for a constant stream of updated, cohesive accounts of new developments so that the methodologies can be properly implemented in the biomedical field. Responding to this need, Computational Methods in Biomedical Research explores important current and emerging computational statistical methods that are used in biomedical research. Written by active researchers in the field, this authoritative collection covers a wide range of topics. It introduces each topic at a basic level, before moving on to more advanced discussions of applications. The book begins with microarray data analysis, machine learning techniques, and mass spectrometry-based protein profiling. It then uses state space models to predict US cancer mortality rates and provides an overview of the application of multistate models in analyzing multiple failure times. The book also describes various Bayesian techniques, the sequential monitoring of randomization tests, mixed-effects models, and the classification rules for repeated measures data. The volume concludes with estimation methods for analyzing longitudinal data. Supplying the knowledge necessary to perform sophisticated statistical analyses, this reference is a must-have for anyone involved in advanced biomedical and pharmaceutical research. It will help in the quest to identify potential new drugs for the treatment of a variety of diseases.

Written with the advanced undergraduate in mind, this book introduces into the field of Bioinformatics. The authors explain the computational and conceptional background to the analysis of large-scale sequence data. Many of the corresponding analysis methods are rooted in evolutionary thinking, which serves as a common thread throughout the book. The focus is on methods of comparative genomics and subjects covered include: alignments, gene finding, phylogeny, and the analysis of single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs). The volume contains exercises, questions & answers to selected problems.

Genome research will certainly be one of the most important and exciting sci- tific disciplines of the 21st century. Deciphering the structure of the human genome, as well as that of several model organisms, is the key to our understanding how genes fu- tion in health and disease. With the combined development of innovativetools, resources, scientific know-how, and an overall functional genomic strategy, the origins of human and other organisms’geneticdiseases can be traced. Scientificresearch groups and dev- opmental departments of several major pharmaceutical and biotechnological companies are using new, innovative strategies to unravel how genes function, elucidating the gene protein product, understanding how genes interact with others-both in health and in the disease state. Presently, the impact of the applications of genome research on our society in medicine, agriculture and nutrition will be comparable only to that of communication technologies. In fact, computational methods, including networking, have been playing a substantial role even in genomics and proteomics from the beginning. We can observe, however, a fundamental change of the paradigm in life sciences these days: research focused until now mostly on the study of single processes related to a few genes or gene products, but due to technical developments of the last years we can now potentially identify and analyze all genes and gene products of an organism and clarify their role in the network of lifeprocesses.

Over 500 prokaryotic genomes have been sequenced to date, and thousands more have been planned for the next few years. While these genomic sequence data provide unprecedented opportunities for biologists to study the world of prokaryotes, they also raise extremely challenging issues such as how to decode the rich information encoded in these genomes. This comprehensive volume includes a collection of cohesively written chapters on prokaryotic genomes, their organization and evolution, the information they encode, and the computational approaches needed to derive such information. A comparative view of bacterial and archaeal genomes, and how information is encoded differently in them, is also presented. Combining theoretical discussions and computational techniques, the book serves as a valuable introductory textbook for graduate-level microbial genomics and informatics courses.
