Abstract [en]

From creation to its degradation, the RNA molecule is the action field of many binding proteins with different roles in regulation and RNA metabolism. Since these proteins are involved in a large number of processes, a variety of diseases are related to abnormalities occurring within the binding mechanisms. One of the experimental methods for detecting the binding sites of these proteins is PAR-CLIP built on the next generation sequencing technology. Due to its size and intrinsic noise, PAR-CLIP data analysis requires appropriate pre-processing and thorough statistical analysis.

The present work has two main goals. First, to develop a modular pipeline for preprocessing PAR-CLIP data and extracting necessary signals for further analysis. Second, to devise a novel statistical model in order to carry out inference about presence of protein binding sites based on the signals extracted in the pre-processing step.
