Abstract:Summary: The support vector machine (SVM) learning algorithm has been widely applied in bioinformatics. We have developed a simple web interface to our implementation of the SVM algorithm, called Gist. This interface allows novice or occasional users to apply a sophisticated machine learning algorithm easily to their data. More advanced users can download the software and source code for local installation. The availability of these tools will permit more widespread application of this powerful learning algorithm in bioinformatics.Availability: Web interface at svm.sdsc.edu. Binaries and source code at microarray.cpmc.columbia.edu/gist.

- The leading journal in its field, Bioinformatics publishes the highest quality scientific papers and review articles of interest to academic and industrial researchers. Its main focus is on new developments in genome bioinformatics and computational biology. Two distinct sections within the journal - Discovery Notes and Application Notes- focus on shorter papers; the former reporting biologically interesting discoveries using computational methods, the latter exploring the applications used for experiments.
