ABSTRACT The temporal program of gene expression during a model physiological response of human cells, the response of fibroblasts to serum, was explored with a complementary DNA microarray representing about 8600 different human genes. Genes could be clustered into groups on the basis of their temporal patterns of expression in this program. Many features of the transcriptional program appeared to be related to the physiology of wound repair, suggesting that fibroblasts play a larger and richer role in this complex multicellular response than had previously been appreciated.

    ABSTRACT: The vocal fold (VF) mucosa confers elegant biomechanical function for voice production but is susceptible to scar formation following injury. Current understanding of VF wound healing is hindered by a paucity of data and is therefore often generalized from research conducted in skin and other mucosal systems. Here, using a previously validated rat injury model, expression microarray technology, and an empirical Bayes analysis approach, we generated a VF-specific transcriptome dataset to better capture the system-level complexity of wound healing in this specialized tissue. We measured differential gene expression at 3, 14 and 60 days post-injury compared to experimentally naïve controls, pursued functional enrichment analyses to refine and add greater biological definition to the previously proposed temporal phases of VF wound healing, and validated the expression and localization of a subset of previously unidentified repair- and regeneration-related genes at the protein level. Our microarray dataset is a resource for the wider research community with the potential to stimulate new hypotheses and avenues of investigation, improve biological and mechanistic insight, and accelerate the identification of novel therapeutic targets.

    ABSTRACT: In this paper, we present an algorithm based on genetic programming for single (one) class classification that uses one set containing similar patterns in training process. This type of problem is called single (one) class classification, a novel detection. The proposed algorithm was tested and compared to seven other traditional methods based on two publicly available transcriptomic and proteomic time series datasets and two public breast cancer datasets. The results show that the algorithm could find most similar patterns in the databases with rather low misclassification rates. We also applied parallel genetic programming for this algorithm and it proves that the island model can give better solutions than sequential genetic programming.
