Title: The Challenge of Proteomic Data from Molecular Signals to Biological Networks and Disease

Abstract

Mass spectrometry (MS) based proteomics is a rapidly advancing field that has great promise for both understanding biological systems as well as advancing the identification and treatment of disease. Breakthroughs in science and medicine due to proteomics, however, are coupled with our ability to overcome significant challenges in the field. These challenges are multi-scalar, spanning the range from the statistics of molecules and molecular signals, to the phenomenological characterization of disease. The papers presented in this section are a representative snapshot of these challenges that span scale and scientific disciplines.

  • Transfusion of platelets into patients suffering from trauma and a variety of disease is a common medical practice that involves millions of units per year. Partial activation of platelets can result in the release of bioactive proteins and lipid mediators that increase the risk of adverse post-transfusion effects. Type-2 diabetes and storage are two factors known to cause partial activation of platelets. A global proteomic study was undertaken to investigate these effects. In this paper we discuss the methods used to interpret these data in terms of biological processes affected by diabetes and storage. The main emphasis is on themore » processing of proteomic data for gene ontology enrichment analysis by techniques originally designed for microarray data.« less
  • Detailed design of the Environmental and Molecular Sciences Laboratory (EMSL) at the Pacific Northwest Laboratory (PNL) is nearing completion and construction is scheduled to begin later this year. This facility will assist in the environmental restoration and waste management mission at the Hanford Site. This paper identifies several real-time data processing applications within the EMSL where neural networks can potentially be beneficial. These applications include real-time sensor data acquisition and analysis, spectral analysis, process control, theoretical modeling, and data compression.
  • The mediation of metal reduction by microorganisms has been investigated intensively from physiological and biochemical perspectives; however, little is known about the genetic basis and regulatory mechanisms underlying the ability of certain bacteria to transform or immobilize a wide array of heavy metals contaminating DOE field sites. Chromium(VI), for example, is one of several risk-driving contaminants at DOE sites and has been targeted by the DOE for bioremediation research. The bacterium Shewanella oneidensis MR-1 can potentially be used to immobilize chromium, a toxic and mutagenic metal, by reducing soluble Cr(VI) to the insoluble and less bioavailable form of Cr(III), thusmore » facilitating its removal from contained-storage and natural sites. The overall goal of this study is to integrate targeted biochemical and proteomic analyses with genome-wide gene expression profiling to examine the molecular basis and regulation of chromium(VI) reduction by Shewanella oneidensis MR-1. Towards this goal, we will (1) isolate and identify the terminal chromium(VI) reductase and the gene(s) encoding this activity using whole-genome sequence information for MR-1 and liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS) in conjunction with conventional protein purification and characterization techniques; (2) verify the function of the gene(s) encoding the terminal Cr(VI) reductase and compare whole transcriptome data with whole proteome data in order to understand the regulation of chromium reduction; and (3) investigate the molecular stress response and adaptation of S. oneidensis to toxic levels of soluble Cr(VI) and other heavy metals. This research will provide important information on the functional components and regulatory mechanisms of microbial metal reduction, which should prove valuable in developing effective assessment strategies for in situ bioremediation and genetically engineering desired bacteria for enhanced bioremediation.« less
  • For an accurate prediction of the production profile of a hydrocarbon reservoir, an optimal assessment of the geological reservoir model is required. The reservoir architecture and lithostratigraphic properties of the model are the most important boundary conditions in the economic evaluation of the reservoir. In this paper, I will show how seismic data can be used to extract lithostratigraphic information to constrain the reservoir model. Two innovative seismic inversion schemes based on the application of artificial neural networks are presented to achieve this goal. Method 1 is a deterministic approach; [open quotes]back-propagation[close quotes] networks are trained by offering seismic responsesmore » at well location as input nodes and well results, e.g., reservoir porosity and/or net-to-gross ratio's, as output nodes. This method can be applied on existing fields with sufficient well control only. Method 2 is a stochastic approach that can be employed in areas with limited well control. Synthetic seismograms are created by stochastically varying the model input parameters such as layer thicknesses, densities, and velocities. The networks are trained by offering the filtered synthetic seismograms an input nodes and one (or more) of the underlying model parameters as the output nodes. In both methods, the trained networks are tested on independent data sets to obtain a measure for the accuracy of the obtained results. The trained and tested networks are subsequently applied to the real seismic data. The techniques discussed in this paper are to be implemented in an industrial quality software package by the [open quotes]Probe[close quotes] consortium.« less
  • This paper describes the work undertaken to de-skill the complex procedure of determining corrosion mechanisms derived from electrochemical noise data. The use of neural networks is discussed and applied to the real time generated electrochemical noise data files with the purpose of determining characteristics particular to individual types of corrosion mechanisms. The electrochemical noise signals can have a wide dynamic range and various methods of raw data pre-processing prior to neural network analysis were investigated. Normalized data were ultimately used as input to the final network analysis. Various network schemes were designed, trained and tested. Factors such as the networkmore » learning schedule and network design were considered before a final network was implemented to achieve a solution. Neural networks trained using general and localized corrosion data from various material environment systems were used to analyze data from simulated nuclear waste tank environments with favorable results.« less
