Validation of Computational Approaches for Antiretroviral Dose Optimization.
Strategies for reducing antiretroviral doses and drug costs can support global access, and numerous options are being investigated. Efavirenz pharmacokinetic simulation data generated with a bottom-up physiologically based model were successfully com

dEMBF: A Comprehensive Database of Enzymes of Microalgal Biofuel Feedstock.
Microalgae have attracted wide attention as one of the most versatile renewable feedstocks for production of biofuel. To develop genetically engineered high lipid yielding algal strains, a thorough understanding of the lipid biosynthetic pathway and

Metabolic Engineering of Microalgal Based Biofuel Production: Prospects and Challenges.
The current scenario in renewable energy is focused on development of alternate and sustainable energy sources, amongst which microalgae stands as one of the promising feedstock for biofuel production. It is well known that microalgae generate much l

Growing duckweed for biofuel production: a review.
Duckweed can be utilised to produce ethanol, butanol and biogas, which are promising alternative energy sources to minimise dependence on limited crude oil and natural gas. The advantages of this aquatic plant include high rate of nutrient (nitrogen

A review of connectivity map and computational approaches in pharmacogenomics.
Large-scale perturbation databases, such as Connectivity Map (CMap) or Library of Integrated Network-based Cellular Signatures (LINCS), provide enormous opportunities for computational pharmacogenomics and drug design. A reason for this is that in co

Computational approaches for drug discovery.
Cellular proteins are the mediators of multiple organism functions being involved in physiological mechanisms and disease. By discovering lead compounds that affect the function of target proteins, the target diseases or physiological mechanisms can

Computational approaches for analyzing the mechanics of atherosclerotic plaques: a review.
Vulnerable and stable atherosclerotic plaques are heterogeneous living materials with peculiar mechanical behaviors depending on geometry, composition, loading and boundary conditions. Computational approaches have the potential to characterize the t

Beyond Lumping and Splitting: A Review of Computational Approaches for Stratifying Psychiatric Disorders.
Heterogeneity is a key feature of all psychiatric disorders that manifests on many levels, including symptoms, disease course, and biological underpinnings. These form a substantial barrier to understanding disease mechanisms and developing effective

Computational approaches for modeling GPCR dimerization.
Growing experimental evidences suggest that dimerization and oligomerization are important for G Protein- Coupled Receptors (GPCRs) function. The detailed structural information of dimeric/oligomeric GPCRs would be very important to understand their

Dry computational approaches for wet medical problems.
This is a report on the 4th international conference in 'Quantitative Biology and Bioinformatics in Modern Medicine' held in Belfast (UK), 19-20 September 2013. The aim of the conference was to bring together leading experts from a variety of differe
