    The advent of next-generation sequencing technologies allowed relative quantification of microbiome communities and their spatial and temporal variation. In recent years, supervised learning (i.e., prediction of a phenotype ...
  • Clustering assessment in weighted networks 

    Arratia Quesada, Argimiro Alejandro; Renedo Mirambell, Martí (2021-06-18)
    Article
    Open Access
    We provide a systematic approach to validate the results of clustering methods on weighted networks, in particular for the cases where the existence of a community structure is unknown. Our validation of clustering comprises ...

    One threatening medical problem for human beings is the increasing antimicrobial resistance of some microorganisms. This problem is especially difficult in Intensive Care Units (ICUs) of hospitals due to the vulnerable ...
  • Semantic and syntactic information for neural machine translation: Injecting features to the transformer 

    Armengol Estapé, Jordi; Ruiz Costa-Jussà, Marta (2021-05-18)
    Article
    Open Access
    Introducing factors such as linguistic features has long been proposed in machine translation to improve the quality of translations. More recently, factored machine translation has proven to still be useful in the case ...
  • Tandem repeats in Bacillus: Unique features and taxonomic distribution 

    Subirana Torrent, Juan A.; Messeguer Peypoch, Xavier (2021-05-20)
    Article
    Open Access
    Little is known about DNA tandem repeats across prokaryotes. We have recently described an enigmatic group of tandem repeats in bacterial genomes with a constant repeat size but variable sequence. These findings strongly ...
