    Abstract: Tensors, or multi-dimensional arrays, have been increasingly used in the recent past in many application domains including signal processing, quantum chemistry, data analysis and machine learning. Tensor decompositions, generalization of matrix decompositions such as SVD to higher dimensions, are employed to find a low-rank representation of data in these applications. This in turn enables finding feasible solutions to the problem at hand with a proper interpretation of this compact representation. Specifically, sparse tensor decompositions are used in data analysis involving recommender systems, graph analytics, and anomaly detection in order to predict missing entries in the tensor, while dense tensor decompositions are heavily employed in signal processing for the detection...

    Docking-based tools for discovery of protein-protein modulators. Abstract: Protein-protein interactions (PPIs) play an essential role in the majority of cell processes, and their dysregulation, caused either by environment factors or genetic variations, are origin of many pathological conditions. Strategies to modulate PPIs with small molecules have therefore attracted increasing interest over the last years. However, the quest for new PPI inhibitors has major difficulties, such as the usually large size of protein-protein interfaces or the absence of preformed cavities in them. These problems are especially challenging when no 3D structure is available for the protein-protein complex. By using docking simulations with pyDock, it is possible to identify protein-protein hot-spot...

    This EMBO Practical Course will present docking-based computational methods and related bioinformatics approaches, aiming at predicting how proteins interact with other biomolecules or ligands. Lectures will provide the theoretical background on state-of-the-art algorithms for sampling and scoring docking models, describe the use of low- and high-resolution information, and conservation- and coevolution-based interfaces prediction methods. Further, protein-peptide and protein-ligand interaction, as well as the young field of genome structure determination from sequencing information will also be covered to broaden the scope of the course beyond traditional protein-protein interactions. Roughly half of the EMBO Practical Course will consist of practical sessions, during which the...
