• TSPTFBS: a docker image for Trans-Species Prediction of Transcription Factor Binding Sites in Plants

    13 days ago - By Oxford Journals

    AbstractMotivationBoth the lack or limitation of experimental data of transcription factor binding sites in plants and the independent evolutions of plant TFs make computational approaches for identifying plant TFBSs lagging behind the relevant human researches. Observing that TFs are highly conserved among plant species, here we first employ the deep convolutional neural network to build 265 Arabidopsis TFBS prediction models based on available DAP-seq datasets, and then transfer them into homologous TFs in other plants.ResultsDeepCNN not only achieves greater successes on Arabidopsis...
