CLIPZ supports the automatic functional annotation of short reads resulting primarily from crosslinking and immunoprecipitation experiments (CLIP) performed with RNA-binding proteins in order to identify the binding sites of these proteins. The functional annotation could be also applied to short reads resulting from other type of experiments such as mRNA-Seq, Digital Gene Expression, small RNA cloning, etc. CLIPZ enables visualization, mining and analysis of data sets.
The Iterative Signature Algorithm (ISA) was designed to reduce the complexity of very large sets of data by decomposing it into so-called "modules". In the context of gene expression data these modules consist of subsets of genes that exhibit a coherent expression profile only over a subset of microarray experiments. Genes and arrays may be attributed to multiple modules and the level of required coherence can be varied resulting in different "resolutions" of the modular mapping.
The Ping-Pong Algorithm (PPA) is a method for integrating tabular data sets that share a common dimension. A typical example for this is gene expression across a set of tissues and drug-response data for the same tissues. The PPA finds co-modules in the two data sets, i.e. genes that are co-expressed in some tissues that have similar responses to a subset of the drugs. The co-modules can overlap; the PPA is efficient and scales well to large data sets. A Matlab implementation is provided.
