IMP: a multi-species functional genomics portal for integration, visualization and prediction of protein functions and networks
AuthorWong, Aaron K.; Park, Christopher Y.; Greene, Casey S.; Bongo, Lars Ailo; Guan, Yuanfang; Troyanskaya, Olga
Integrative multi-species prediction (IMP) is an interactive web server that enables molecular biologists to interpret experimental results and to generate hypotheses in the context of a large cross-organism compendium of functional predictions and networks. The system provides a framework for biologists to analyze their candidate gene sets in the context of functional networks, as they expand or focus these sets by mining functional relationships predicted from integrated high-throughput data. IMP integrates prior knowledge and data collections from multiple organisms in its analyses. Through flexible and interactive visualizations, researchers can compare functional contexts and interpret the behavior of their gene sets across organisms. Additionally, IMP identifies homologs with conserved functional roles for knowledge transfer, allowing for accurate function predictions even for biological processes that have very few experimental annotations in a given organism. IMP currently supports seven organisms (Homo sapiens, Mus musculus, Rattus novegicus, Drosophila melanogaster, Danio rerio, Caenorhabditis elegans and Saccharomyces cerevisiae), does not require any registration or installation and is freely available for use at http://imp.princeton.edu.

Nikolaisen, Trygg Einar (Mastergradsoppgave; Master thesis, 2018-05-15)Introduction: Liposomes as drug delivery systems has been widely studied as a way to solubilize poorly soluble drugs, reduce side effects of chemotherapeutics and increase circulation time in vivo. Since the first descriptions of liposomes over 60 years ago, they have shown tendencies to shrink and swell when the external environment of the liposomes is altered. This phenomenon has been studied in ...
Implementing an electronic health record in a Nigerian secondary healthcare facility. Prospects and challenges Attah, Ambrose Ojadale (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2017-11-02)Nigeria is witnessing continuing advocacy and increase in number of individuals yearning for computerization of health information and healthcare processes. However, little is known about the opinions of the diverse healthcare providers who would ensure the successful implementation and meaningful use of health information technology in the country (Adeleke, Erinle et al. 2015). This study explores ...
Pedersen, Aleksander (Doctoral thesis; Doktorgradsavhandling, 2020-10-20)In applications for technical problems, Geometric modeling and sensor technology are key in both scientific and industrial development. Simulations and visualization techniques are the next step after defining geometry models and data types. This thesis attempts to combine different aspects of geometric modeling and sensor technology as well as to facilitate simulation and visualization. It includes ...
