It can be applied to diverse untargeted profiling datasets and is helpful to advance metabolomics as a powerful approach for elucidating biology underlying human traits and diseases.
AVA,Dx / Analysis of Variation for Association with Disease
Utilizes whole exome sequencing data to detect Crohn’s disease (CD) status. AVA,Dx is a disease-prediction model that assists users in research of undiscovered diseases. With this tool, researchers are able to foresee CD status for previously invisible individuals from another study on CD. It allows users to highlight pathogenesis pathways and can advance clinical diagnostic time and accuracy.
Consists in a biophysical dynamic module. Biophysical-dynamic-module-for-PIN-polarisation is a model prediction build upon the up-to-date experimental results on the influencing factors and cellular processes and their non-linear interactions. The modelling and simulations of this module assists postulate that relative influence of the mechanical tension of the plasma membrane can surpass that of the GTPases Rho of Plant (ROP).
Investigates somatic enhancer mutations enriched biological networks in cancer. Ennet allows users to discover potential cancer-driving networks through integrating enhancer-gene interactions with functional molecular networks. It provides a new perspective to find new mechanisms for tumor development from somatic mutations in enhancers (SMEs).
Allows creation of genome multiple sequence comparisons. Panaconda is an algorithmic approach for discovering collision points within a group of genomes. It creates a de Bruijn graph and uses it’s traversal to create the pan-synteny (PS)-graph from sequence conservation in any orientation, whereas Partial Order Alignment (POA) requires that blocks of alignment occur in the same orientation.
PRSoS / PRS-on-Spark
Allows users to measure polygenic risk scores (PRS). PRSoS provides enhanced data output options and can be applied to observed genotypes, hard calls, and imputed posterior probabilities. It also supplies a reliable option to retain much of the strand-ambiguous single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs). It makes use of parallel computing to accelerate PRS calculation. This tool is useful for better understanding the polygenic basis of complex traits.
