On the stochastic phase stability of Ti2AlC Cr2AlC

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5506059
PMID: 28698619
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-017-05463-1

[…] To account for the errors of assessed energies and their propagations to phase equilibria of the system, Bayesian quantification of model uncertainty were implemented. For this, prior and likelihood were assumed to be uniform and Gaussian distributions, respectively. The range of the uniform distribution […]


Bquant – Novel script for batch quantification of LCMS data

PMCID: 5040634
PMID: 27709068
DOI: 10.1016/j.mex.2016.09.001

[…] Mass spectra processing is not performed by Bquant script. Component peak identification and integration have to be executed using instrument vendor software. All instrument control software performs these basic operations. Signals used for qua […]


Metabolomics Insights Into Pathophysiological Mechanisms of Interstitial Cystitis

PMCID: 4180160
PMID: 25279237
DOI: 10.5213/inj.2014.18.3.106

[…] abolomics datasets, which include XCMS, MZmine, MetAlign, MathDAMP, and LCMStats. For NMR data analysis, the significantly altered NMR peaks can be identified by using a probabilistic approach called Bayesian Quantification (BQuant) [], which will allow the identification and quantification of metabolites in local regions of the 1H-NMR spectra. For preprocessing of data from MS-based metabolomics […]


Methodological approaches to help unravel the intracellular metabolome of Bacillus subtilis

Microb Cell Fact
PMCID: 3722095
PMID: 23844891
DOI: 10.1186/1475-2859-12-69

[…] eported. In addition, new convenient tools for data analysis and visualization have been developed, such as mzMINE [,] and XCMS for MS data []; GAVIN [] and Metab [] for GC-MS analysis; BATMAN [] and BQuant [] for NMR analysis as well as, MetAssimulo [] and MBRole [], MetExplore [] and MSEA [] to handle and visualize data sets of increasing size.Sampling and pre-analysis represent the first steps […]


Gene network reconstruction from transcriptional dynamics under kinetic model uncertainty: a case for the second derivative

PMCID: 2654806
PMID: 19218351
DOI: 10.1093/bioinformatics/btp028

[…] to find a set of predictive sub-models, we could proceed by stochastic search through the restricted sub-model space (see Casella and Moreno, ) or perhaps by conventional stepwise selection. However, Bayesian quantification of network uncertainty instead requires the computation of P(αij=1|y).In the simplest situation, one regulating gene dominates all others and expression measurements are availa […]
