We seek the community's help in figuring out any of the methods described in this researcher's Google Scholar records appear to be valid and practial - shorturl.at/pMPT5.
As a group of biology undergrad students, we are familiar with some bioinformatics. But the tools & techniques mentioned in these papers are commonly used in subject areas we aren't familiar with
- signal processing
- electronics & electrical engineering - hence this request for help.
Some of those tools are listed below:
- Spectral analysis
- Fourier Transformation (FT)
- Frequency Chaos Game Signal (FCGS) Encoding
- Wavelet Transformation
- Support Vector Machine (SVM)
We did some searches for these topics here on BioStars (very abbreviated list below).
Spectral Clustering Algorithm On Protein Sequence @ https://www.biostars.org/p/14588/ (Dead end)
Fft Appropriate For Multiple Sequence Alignment But Not Mapping @ What Makes Fft Appropriate For Multiple Sequence Alignment But Not Mapping?
So we do not get lost in these unfamiliar topics, we have these 2 questions please:
Can any of these methods help with better IDENTIFICATION of transposons, specifically Helitron class of TEs?
Can any of these methods help with better sub-CLASSIFICATION of transposons, specifically Helitron class of TEs?
