M. Hosseini, A. Palmer, W. Manka, P. G. Grady, V. Patchigolla, J. Bi, R. O’Neill, Z. Chi, and D. Aguiar. Deep statistical modelling of nanopore sequencing translocation times reveals latent non-B DNA structures. Bioinformatics (Supplement_1) (2023). This work was published in Intelligent Systems for Molecular Biology 2023 and will be presented in Lyon, France in late July. Info on ISMB: “The annual international conference on Intelligent Systems for Molecular Biology (ISMB) is the flagship meeting of the International Society for Computational Biology (ISCB). The 2023 conference is the 31st ISMB conference, which has grown to become the world’s largest bioinformatics and computational biology conference.”

Non-canonical DNA structures, which deviate from the canonical double helix, play an important role in cellular processes from genomic instability to oncogenesis. Professor Aguiar and Bi’s Ph.D. students Marjan Hosseini and Aaron Palmer led the development of a deep statistical model for predicting non-canonical DNA. This work represents the first computational pipeline to predict non-canonical DNA from nanopore sequencing and will be presented at ISMB 2023, a top conference in computational biology.

Aaron Palmer led the development of the Goodness-of-Fit Autoencoder (GoFAE), a deterministic generative autoencoder that optimizes goodness-of-fit test statistics, and the associated theory to justify its gradient-based optimization. The work will be presented at ICLR 2023, a top machine learning conference.
