In this paper, we propose a novel biclustering approach called BiClusO. Biclustering can be applied to various types of bipartite data such as gene-condition or gene-disease relations. For example, we applied BiClusO to bipartite relations between species and volatile organic compounds (VOCs). VOCs, which are emitted by different species, have huge environmental and ecological impacts. The biosynthesis of VOCs depends on different metabolic pathways which can be used to categorize the species. A previous study related to the KNApSAcK VOC database classified microorganisms based on their VOC profiles, which confirmed the consistency between VOC-based and pathogenicity-based classifications. However, due to limited data, classification of all species in terms of VOC profiles was not performed. In this study, we enriched our database with additional data collected from different online sources and journals. Then, by applying BiClusO to species-VOC relational data, we determined that VOC-based classification is consistent with taxonomy-based classification of the species. We also assessed the diversity of VOC pathways across different kingdoms of species.

We propose and develop a novel biclustering (N-BiC) approach for performing N-way biclustering of neuroimaging data. Our approach is applicable to an arbitrary number of features from both imaging and...
Biclustering techniques can identify local patterns of a data matrix by clustering feature space and sample space at the same time. Various biclustering methods have been proposed and successfully app...
Relational aggression-a psychological form of aggression-has numerous negative consequences for physical and emotional health. However, little is known about the risk factors that lead youth to engage...
Species and gene trees represent how species and individual loci within their genomes evolve from their most recent common ancestors. These trees are central to addressing several questions in biology...
Citizen science and data collected from various volunteers have an interesting potential in aiding the understanding of many biological and ecological processes. We describe a mobile application that ...

The scientific rationale for this study is the evolving understanding that iron-induced tissue damage is not only a process of progressive bulking of organs through high-volumes iron depos...
Information application based on a variety of coding methods to minimize the amount of data to be stored, retrieved, or transmitted. Data compression can be applied to various forms of data, such as images and signals. It is used to reduce costs and increase efficiency in the maintenance of large volumes of data.
A framework for development and promotion of common data formats and exchange protocols linked in a way that can be read directly by computers. Semantic Web is a platform for sharing and reusing data across application, enterprise, and community boundaries, by linking concepts rather than just documents.
The field of information science concerned with the analysis and dissemination of data through the application of computers.
Various units or machines that operate in combination or in conjunction with a computer but are not physically part of it. Peripheral devices typically display computer data, store data from the computer and return the data to the computer on demand, prepare data for human use, or acquire data from a source and convert it to a form usable by a computer.

A relational pattern in which a person attempts to derive a sense of purpose through relationships with others.
Bioinformatics is the application of computer software and hardware to the management of biological data to create useful information. Computers are used to gather, store, analyze and integrate biological and genetic information which can then be applied...
