Protein Interaction  
In the field of computational bioinformatics, identifying a set of genes which are responsible for a particular cellular mechanism, is very much essential for tasks such as medical diagnosis or disease gene identification. Accurately grouping (clustering) the genes is one of the important tasks in understanding the functionalities of the disease genes. In this regard, ensemble clustering becomes a promising approach to combine different clustering solutions to generate almost accurate gene partitioning. Recently, researchers have used generative model as a smart ensemble method to produce the right consensus solution. In the current paper, we develop a protein-protein interaction-based generative model that can efficiently perform a gene clustering. Utilizing protein interaction information as the generative model’s latent variable enables enhance the generative model’s efficiency in inferring final probabilistic labels. The proposed generative model utilizes different weak supervision sources rather utilizing any ground truth information. For weak supervision sources, we use a multi-objective optimization based clustering technique together with the world’s largest gene ontology based knowledge-base named Gene Ontology Consortium(GOC). These weakly supervised labels are supplied to a generative model that eventually assigns all genes to probabilistic labels. The comparative study with respect to silhouette score, Biological Homogeneity Index (BHI) and Biological Stability Index (BSI) proves that the proposed generative model outperforms than other state-of-the-art techniques.

It has always been the basic tenet of the Government of India, in generously funding R&D efforts at academic institutions over the years, that facilities established through such support be made available to those needing them and qualified to make use of them for their own research work

However, this was never easy or straightforward for, among other reasons, there was no ready source of information of what facility was available and where. Thanks to the Web, it is much easier today to have a national and regional “inventory of resources”, so as to match users with the resources they need, and to do all this in an efficient and transparent manner.

This can lead to a leap in R&D productivity and greatly enhance the effectiveness of public investment. This is the motivation behind I-STEM.
