We are back online and very pleased to see you are still joining our project with a great computational power, this is really nice, thank you all!
In parallel with the expansion of the vitis genes, we are working on the comparison of our algorithm with the state of the art methods that participated to the DREAM5 competition on Gene Networks Inference. With your great contribution we almost completed one of the network of the challenge (oge_dream5_net3), so we will move to the next dataset, i.e. oge_dream5_net4.
These dataset covers a wide portion of the baker's yeast with almost 800 experiments. Hereafter a brief introduction on the organism.
Saccharomyces cerevisiae (baker's yeast) is the model organism for unicellular eukaryotes. Indeed, despites being unicellular, it shares most of basic biological processes with pluricellular complex organisms. Moreover, its relatively compact genome makes the baker's yeast the perfect target for bioinformatic methods that want to start addressing eukaryotes without dealing with the computational cost of vegetables or mammalian.
Thanks in advance for your contribution,
