A Support Vector Machine based method to distinguish long non-coding RNAs from protein coding transcripts

lncRNA

In recent years, a rapidly increasing number of RNA transcripts has been generated by thousands of sequencing projects around the world, creating enormous volumes of transcript data to be analyzed. An important problem to be addressed when analyzing this data is distinguishing between long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) and protein coding transcripts (PCTs). Thus, we present a Support Vector Machine (SVM) ...

Comparing Machine Learning Based Tools for Long Noncoding Transcripts Discrimination

lncRNA

Long noncoding RNA (lncRNA) is a kind of noncoding RNA with length more than 200 nucleotides, which aroused interest of people in recent years. Lots of studies have confirmed that human genome contains many thousands of lncRNAs which exert great influence over some critical regulators of cellular process. With the advent of high-throughput sequencing technologies, a great quantity of sequences ...

DeepLNC, a long non-coding RNA prediction tool using a deep neural network

lncRNA

The significant role of long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) in various cellular functions, such as gene imprinting, immune response, embryonic pluripotency, tumorogenesis, and genetic regulations, has been widely studied and reported in recent years. Several experimental and computational methods involving genome-wide search and screenings of ncRNAs are being proposed utilizing sequence features-length, occurrence, and composition of bases with various limitations. Researchers ...
