Establishing a consensus for the hallmarks of cancer based on gene ontology and pathway annotations.

BMC Bioinformatics 2021 Apr 6;22(1):178. Epub 2021 Apr 6.

The Leiden Institute of Advanced Computer Science (LIACS), Snellius Gebouw, Niels Bohrweg 1, Leiden, The Netherlands.

Background: The hallmarks of cancer provide a highly cited and well-used conceptual framework for describing the processes involved in cancer cell development and tumourigenesis. However, methods for translating these high-level concepts into data-level associations between hallmarks and genes (for high throughput analysis), vary widely between studies. The examination of different strategies to associate and map cancer hallmarks reveals significant differences, but also consensus. Read More

PeerJ Comput Sci 2020 21;6:e281. Epub 2020 Sep 21.

Institute of Data Science, Maastricht University, Maastricht, Netherlands.

It is essential for the advancement of science that researchers share, reuse and reproduce each other's workflows and protocols. The FAIR principles are a set of guidelines that aim to maximize the value and usefulness of research data, and emphasize the importance of making digital objects findable and reusable by others. The question of how to apply these principles not just to data but also to the workflows and protocols that consume and produce them is still under debate and poses a number of challenges. Read More

Discovering latent node Information by graph attention network.

Sci Rep 2021 Mar 26;11(1):6967. Epub 2021 Mar 26.

School of Systems Science, Beijing Normal University, Beijing, 100875, People's Republic of China.

In this paper, we propose graph attention based network representation (GANR) which utilizes the graph attention architecture and takes graph structure as the supervised learning information. Compared with node classification based representations, GANR can be used to learn representation for any given graph. GANR is not only capable of learning high quality node representations that achieve a competitive performance on link prediction, network visualization and node classification but it can also extract meaningful attention weights that can be applied in node centrality measuring task.

Frank A Sloan

Milbank Q 2021 03;99(1):273-327

Duke University.

Policy Points In two respects, quality of care tends to be higher at major teaching hospitals: process of care and long-term survival of cancer patients following initial diagnosis. There is also evidence that short-term (30-day) mortality is lower on average at such hospitals, although the quality of evidence is somewhat lower. Quality of care is mulitdimensional. Read More
