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. I would recommend downloading and using this package if you plan on using more than one of my Matlab codes.
Here we will work with the Spambase dataset from HW02 , testing your implementations using Fold 1 as described in HW02. Precondition your data. Gradient descent will often perform much better on data that has been "normalized" so that the individual features are on a comparable scale. One commonly used normalization is the z-score , sometimes called the standard score. To compute the z-score corresonding to a feature value, one must first compute the mean and standard deviation of the feature. You should compute these values yourself, in code, but you can check your results against the Spambase page describing various simple statistics over those features. 11F: Homework 03
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. 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.

Health focused genetic testing and analysis; DNA test - Navigenics Navigenics was recently acquired by Life Technologies, a global biotechnology company dedicated to innovation and improving life in meaningful ways. As the Navigenics team transitions its focus to Life Technologies’ developing molecular diagnostic business, we want to thank you for your patronage and making genetics a part of your health. We remain committed to our founding principle of protecting the privacy and security of our members' genetic information.
STRING: functional protein association networks
Ever wanted to find out quickly the number of rows and/or columns in file directly from terminal. There are many ways to skin this cat. Here is what I used for number of rows for quite a while: wc -l filename Gregor Gorjanc (gg)
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. 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. 03. GNA : Genetic Network Analyzer
Whole-genome dataset for bread wheat now available in Ensembl Plants An improved genome sequence for bread wheat including more than 100,000 genes has been released in Ensembl Plants. Generated under the auspices of the International Wheat Genome Sequencing Consortium (IWGSC), the Chromosome Survey Sequence represents the most complete version of the wheat genome to date.
