Making Sense of Genomic Data With Machine Learning Methods
2019
Z-DNA is an alternative form of a DNA molecule that plays a vital role in gene expression regulation. However, the precise biological properties of this molecule are still unknown. Today there is a need for recognition of Z-DNA for annotation of the human genome, as well as for studying patterns of association of Z-DNA with other functional elements at the whole-genome scale. The existing thermodynamic algorithms for Z-DNA recognition yield too many false-positive results, which makes it impossible to use them for a genome annotation. In this work, we propose more efficient machine learning algorithms for Z-DNA recognition. We consider various ways of extracting features from a DNA sequence; assess the accuracy of an algorithm prediction.

Student Theses at HSE must be completed in accordance with the University Rules and regulations specified by each educational programme.

Summaries of all theses must be published and made freely available on the HSE website.

The full text of a thesis can be published in open access on the HSE website only if the authoring student (copyright holder) agrees, or, if the thesis was written by a team of students, if all the co-authors (copyright holders) agree. After a thesis is published on the HSE website, it obtains the status of an online publication.

Student theses are objects of copyright and their use is subject to limitations in accordance with the Russian Federation’s law on intellectual property.

In the event that a thesis is quoted or otherwise used, reference to the author’s name and the source of quotation is required.
