The study of networks, and identification of key players within them, is a constant challenge in fields ranging from transportation to biological systems. As experimental methods are often too costly and inefficient in large networks to
assign value to particular network components, several algorithms have been designed to identify the most influe...
Biological systems are composed of highly complex networks and decoding the functional significance of individual network components is critical for understanding healthy and diseased states. Several algorithms have been designed to identify the most influential regulatory points, or hub nodes, within a network. However, none of the current methods...

Long non‐coding RNAs (lncRNAs) are a subclass of non‐protein coding transcripts that are involved in several regulatory processes and are considered as potential biomarkers for almost all cancer types. This study aims to investigate the prognostic value of lncRNAs for lung adenocarcinoma (LUAD), the most prevalent subtype of lung cancer. To this en...

Background: Long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) refer to a group of non-protein-coding RNAs that are usually more than 200 nucleotides. These long transcripts play significant roles in diverse cellular processes, mostly through epigenetic mechanisms. Thus, dysregulation of lncRNAs is associated with various diseases, especially cancer. This study aims to...
Long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) are a group of transcripts over 200 nucleotides in length that do not code for proteins. The association of the dysregulation of numerous lncRNAs with several malignancies, including lung cancer, has been frequently reported. This study aims to inspect the association of genomic and transcriptomic alterations to the l...

Circadian rhythms are physiological and behavioral cycles with a period of approximately 24 hours that control various functions including gene expression. Circadian disruption is associated with a variety of diseases, especially cancer. Although some of the oncogenes and tumor suppressor genes (TSGs) are known as clock-controlled gene...
Epigenetic complexes control various pathways within the cells. Their abnormalities can be involved in the initiation and the progression of different types of cancer. Nucleosome remodeling and deacetylase (NuRD) is an epigenetic complex that comprises several subunits such as PHF6. Although PHF6 is reported as a tumor suppressor in some of the hem...

Different mechanisms, including transcriptional and post transcriptional processes, regulate tissue specific expression of genes. In this study, we report differences in gene/protein compositional features between apoptosis involved genes selectively expressed in human tissues. We found some correlations between codon/amino acid usage and tissue sp...

Although our data confirm that LGRs in BRCA1 comprise a relatively small proportion of mutations in hereditary breast cancer in the Iranian population, MLPA analysis might be considered for screening of LGRs in high-risk individuals. It is worth to note that our results are consistent with previous studies in various Asian and European countries.

Circadian rhythms refer to the endogenous rhythms that are generated to synchronize physiology and behavior with 24-h environmental cues. These rhythms are regulated by both external cues and molecular clock mechanisms in almost all cells. Disruption of circadian rhythms, which is called circadian disruption, affects many biological processes withi...

Long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) refer to a group of RNAs that are usually more than 200 nucleotides and are not involved in protein generation. Instead, lncRNAs are involved in different regulatory processes, such as regulation of gene expression. Different lncRNAs exist throughout the genome. LncRNAs are also known for their roles in different huma...
