Matlab Code by Mark Schmidt (optimization, graphical models, machine learning) Summary This package contains the most recent version of various Matlab codes I released during my PhD work.

Matlab Code by Mark Schmidt (optimization, graphical models, machine learning)

I would recommend downloading and using this package if you plan on using more than one of my Matlab codes. This is because this package includes all the more recent bug-fixes and efficiency-improvements, while in making this package I have updated my old code to make it compatible with the new code and newer versions of Matlab. Further, I typically do not update the individual packages unless I am making a major change (such as the updates of minFunc and UGM).

The particular packages included (from oldest to newest) are: minFunc - Function for unconstrained optimization of differentiable real-valued multivariate functions. Examples Each of the packages includes one or more demos that show how to use the code. MinFunc Updates. 11F: Homework 03. A question and answer site for bioinformatics. Faster Illumina analysis pipeline via streaming. Hello BioStar, After some time working with Illumina and pipelines, I've identified a bottleneck when getting early "draft" results from a run.

Faster Illumina analysis pipeline via streaming

Figuring out how the sequencing data looks like in real time, as opposed to wait for the run to finish after ~11 days. The goal would be to get an estimate of how many reads one could expect to get for each sample, thereby guiding setup for a subsequent run for topping up the data for those samples that do not reach the required amounts. It would be help a lot if we could reduce the the wall-clock time for reaching a decision on which samples need to be re-run. When it comes to implementation, I've been thinking on a file status daemon such as Guard[1], coupled with the CASAVA/OLB tools from illumina, performing basecalling and demultiplexing as soon as the files get written to disk, without having to wait for the whole run to finish.

Genetic Network Analyzer : Modelling and simulation of genetic regulatory networks Genetic Network Analyzer (GNA) is a computer tool for the modeling and simulation of genetic regulatory networks.

03. GNA : Genetic Network Analyzer

The aim of GNA is to assist biologists and bioinformaticians in constructing a model of a genetic regulatory network using knowledge about regulatory interactions in combination with gene expression data. Genetic Network Analyzer consists of a simulator of qualitative models of genetic regulatory networks in the form of piecewise-linear differential equations. Instead of exact numerical values for the parameters, which are often not available for networks of biological interest, the user of GNA specifies inequality constraints. This information is sufficient to generate a state transition graph that describes the qualitative dynamics of the network. Functionalities of GNA The current version is GNA 8.5.
