The Summary: Long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) can act as molecular sponge or decoys for an RNA-binding protein (RBP) through their RBP-binding sites, thereby modulating the expression of all target genes of the corresponding RBP of interest. Here, we present a web tool named RBPSponge to explore lncRNAs based on their potential to act as a sponge for an RBP of interest. RBPSponge identifies the occurrences of RBP-binding sites and CLIP peaks on lncRNAs, and enables users to run statistical analyses to investigate the regulatory network between lncRNAs, RBPs and targets of RBPs.


GLANET: genomic loci annotation and enrichment tool
Otlu, Burcak; Firtina, Can; Keles, Sunduz; Tastan, Oznur (Oxford University Press (OUP), 2017-09-15)
Motivation: Genomic studies identify genomic loci representing genetic variations, transcription factor (TF) occupancy, or histone modification through next generation sequencing (NGS) technologies. Interpreting these loci requires evaluating them with known genomic and epigenomic annotations.
iBioProVis: interactive visualization and analysis of compound bioactivity space
Dönmez, Ataberk; Rifaioğlu, Ahmet Süreyya; Atalay, Rengül; Atalay, Mehmet Volkan (Oxford University Press (OUP), 2020-08-15)
SUMMARY: iBioProVis is an interactive tool for visual analysis of the compound bioactivity space in the context of target proteins, drugs and drug candidate compounds. iBioProVis tool takes target protein identifiers and, optionally, compound SMILES as input, and uses the state-of-the-art non-linear dimensionality reduction method t-Distributed Stochastic Neighbor Embedding (t-SNE) to plot the distribution of compounds embedded in a 2D map, based on the similarity of structural properties of compounds and i...
LFM-Pro: a tool for detecting significant local structural sites in proteins
Sacan, Ahmet; Ozturk, Ozgur; Ferhatosmanoglu, Hakan; Wang, Yusu (Oxford University Press (OUP), 2007-03-15)
Motivation: The rapidly growing protein structure repositories have opened up new opportunities for discovery and analysis of functional and evolutionary relationships among proteins. Detecting conserved structural sites that are unique to a protein family is of great value in identification of functionally important atoms and residues. Currently available methods are computationally expensive and fail to detect biologically significant local features.
Implicit motif distribution based hybrid computational kernel for sequence classification
Atalay, Mehmet Volkan (Oxford University Press (OUP), 2005-04-15)
Motivation: We designed a general computational kernel for classification problems that require specific motif extraction and search from sequences. Instead of searching for explicit motifs, our approach finds the distribution of implicit motifs and uses as a feature for classification. Implicit motif distribution approach may be used as modus operandi for bioinformatics problems that require specific motif extraction and search, which is otherwise computationally prohibitive.
Integrated search and alignment of protein structures
Sacan, Ahmet; Toroslu, İsmail Hakkı; Ferhatosmanoglu, Hakan (Oxford University Press (OUP), 2008-12-15)
Motivation: Identification and comparison of similar three-dimensional (3D) protein structures has become an even greater challenge in the face of the rapidly growing structure databases. Here, we introduce Vorometric, a new method that provides efficient search and alignment of a query protein against a database of protein structures. Voronoi contacts of the protein residues are enriched with the secondary structure information and a metric substitution matrix is developed to allow efficient indexing. The ...
