Summary: RANKS is a flexible software package that can be easily applied to any bioinformatics task formalizable as ranking of nodes with respect to a property given as a label, such as automated protein function prediction, gene disease prioritization and drug repositioning. To this end RANKS provides an efficient and easy-to-use implementation of kernelized score functions, a semi-supervised algorithmic scheme embedding both local and global learning strategies for the analysis of biomolecular...

The expansion of the Internet over the last decade and the proliferation of online social communities, such as Facebook, Googlep, and Twitter, as well as multimedia sharing sites, such as YouTube, Flickr, and Picasa, has led to a vast increase of available information to the user. In the case of multimedia data, such as images and videos, fast querying and processing of the available information requires the annotation of the multimedia data with semantic descriptors, that is, labels. However, o...

Kernel-based methods provide a rich and elegant framework for developing nonparametric detection procedures for signal processing. Several recently proposed procedures can be simply described using basic concepts of reproducing kernel Hilbert space (RKHS) embeddings of probability distributions, mainly mean elements and covariance operators. We propose a unified view of these tools and draw relationships with information divergences between distributions.

Network “guilt by association” (GBA) is a proven approach for identifying novel disease genes based on the observation that similar mutational phenotypes arise from functionally related genes. In principle, this approach could account even for nonadditive genetic interactions, which underlie the synergistic combinations of mutations often linked to complex diseases. Here, we analyze a large-scale, human gene functional interaction network (dubbed HumanNet). We show that candidate disease genes c...

Background: Most successful computational approaches for protein function prediction integrate multiple genomics and proteomics data sources to make inferences about the function of unknown proteins. The most accurate of these algorithms have long running times, making them unsuitable for real-time protein function prediction in large genomes. As a result, the predictions of these algorithms are stored in static databases that can easily become outdated. We propose a new algorithm, GeneMANIA, th...

This work presents a kernel method for clustering the nodes of a weighted, undirected, graph. The algorithm is based on a two-step procedure. First, the sigmoid commute-time kernel (KCT), providing a similarity measure between any couple of nodes by taking the indirect links into account, is computed from the adjacency matrix of the graph. Then, the nodes of the graph are clustered by performing a kernel kmeans or fuzzy k-means on this CT kernel matrix. For this purpose, a new, simple, version o...

Motivation: Support vector machines (SVMs) have been successfully used to classify proteins into functional categories. Recently, to integrate multiple data sources, a semidefinite programming (SDP) based SVM method was introduced. In SDP/SVM, multiple kernel matrices corresponding to each of data sources are combined with weights obtained by solving an SDP. However, when trying to apply SDP/SVM to large problems, the computational cost can become prohibitive, since both converting the data to a...

We introduce a family of kernels on graphs based on the notion of regularization operators. This generalizes in a natural way the notion of regularization and Greens functions, as commonly used for real valued functions, to graphs. It turns out that diffusion kernels can be found as a special case of our reasoning. We show that the class of positive, monotonically decreasing functions on the unit interval leads to kernels and corresponding regularization operators.

Comprehensive protein–protein interaction maps promise to reveal many aspects of the complex regulatory network underlying cellular function. Recently, large-scale approaches have predicted many new protein interactions in yeast. To measure their accuracy and potential as well as to identify biases, strengths and weaknesses, we compare the methods with each other and with a reference set of previously reported protein interactions.

Objectives null Interstitial lung disease is a significant comorbidity and the leading cause of mortality in patients with systemic sclerosis. Transcriptomic data of systemic sclerosis-associated interstitial lung disease (SSc-ILD) were analysed to evaluate the salient molecular and cellular signatures in comparison with those in related pulmonary diseases and to identify the key driver genes and target molecules in the disease module. null Methods null A transcriptomic dataset of lung tissues f...

Untargeted metabolomics using liquid chromatography coupled to mass spectrometry (LC-MS) allows the detection of thousands of metabolites in biological samples. However, LC-MS data annotation is still considered a major bottleneck in the metabolomics pipeline since only a small fraction of the metabolites present in the sample can be annotated with the required confidence level. Here, we introduce mWISE (metabolomics wise inference of speck entities), an R package for context-based annotation of...

Epstein-Barr virus (EBV)-associated diffuse large B-cell lymphoma not otherwise specified (DLBCL NOS) constitute a distinct clinicopathological entity in the current World Health Organization (WHO) classification. However, its genomic features remain sparsely characterized. Here, we combine whole-genome sequencing (WGS), targeted amplicon sequencing (tNGS), and fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) from 47 EBV + DLBCL (NOS) cases to delineate the genomic landscape of this rare disease. Integ...

MOTIVATION Network diffusion and label propagation are fundamental tools in computational biology, with applications like gene-disease association, protein function prediction and module discovery. More recently, several publications have introduced a permutation analysis after the propagation process, due to concerns that network topology can bias diffusion scores. This opens the question of the statistical properties and the presence of bias of such diffusion processes in each of its applicati...

Disease-related gene prioritization is one of the most well-established pharmaceutical techniques used to identify genes that are important to a biological process relevant to a disease. In identifying these essential genes, the network diffusion (ND) approach is a widely used technique applied in gene prioritization. However, there is still a large number of candidate genes that need to be evaluated experimentally. Therefore, it would be of great value to develop a new strategy to improve the p...

Deciphering regulatory patterns of neural stem cell (NSC) differentiation with multiple stages is essential to understand NSC differentiation mechanisms. Recent single-cell transcriptome datasets became available at individual differentiation. However, a systematic and integrative analysis of multiple datasets at multiple temporal stages of NSC differentiation is lacking. In this study, we propose a new method integrating prior information to construct three gene regulatory networks at pair-wise...

High-throughput screening yields vast amounts of biological data which can be highly challenging to interpret. In response, knowledge-driven approaches emerged as possible solutions to analyze large datasets by leveraging prior knowledge of biomolecular interactions represented in the form of biological networks. Nonetheless, given their size and complexity, their manual investigation quickly becomes impractical. Thus, computational approaches, such as diffusion algorithms, are often employed to...

Smoothened (SMO) antagonist Vismodegib effectively inhibits the Hedgehog pathway in proliferating cancer cells. In early stage of treatment, Vismodegib exhibited promising outcomes to regress the tumors cells, but ultimately relapsed due to the drug resistive mutations in SMO mostly occurring before (primary mutations G497W) or after (acquired mutations D473H/Y) anti-SMO therapy. This study investigates the unprecedented insights of structural and functional mechanism hindering the binding of Vi...

Methods for phenotype and outcome prediction are largely based on inductive supervised models that use selected biomarkers to make predictions, without explicitly considering the functional relationships between individuals. We introduce a novel network-based approach named Patient-Net (P-Net) in which biomolecular profiles of patients are modeled in a graph-structured space that represents gene expression relationships between patients. Then a kernel-based semi-supervised transductive algorithm...
