  1. Research

    Automated identification of reference genes based on RNA-seq data

    Gene expression analyses demand appropriate reference genes (RGs) for normalization, in order to obtain reliable assessments. Ideally, RG expression levels should remain constant in all cells, tissues or exper...

    Rational confederation of genes and diseases: NGS interpretation via GeneCards, MalaCards and VarElect

    A key challenge in the realm of human disease research is next generation sequencing (NGS) interpretation, whereby identified filtered variant-harboring genes are associated with a patient’s disease phenotypes...

    Transcranial direct current stimulation as a motor neurorehabilitation tool: an empirical review

    The present review collects the most relevant empirical evidence available in the literature until date regarding the effects of transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) on the human motor function. tDCS...

    Modeling EphB4-EphrinB2 protein–protein interaction using flexible docking of a short linear motif

    Many protein–protein interactions are mediated by a short linear motif. Usually, amino acid sequences of those motifs are known or can be predicted. It is much harder to experimentally characterize or predict ...

    A protocol for CABS-dock protein–peptide docking driven by side-chain contact information

    The characterization of protein–peptide interactions is a challenge for computational molecular docking. Protein–peptide docking tools face at least two major difficulties: (1) efficient sampling of large-scal...
