HMMs (Hidden Markov Models) are commonly used in speech recognition algorithms. They have also been successfully utilized in many other bioinformatics problems. However, to our knowledge, there is no prior work that uses HMMs for inferring gene regulation. This remains as a significant avenue of research yet to be explored. We are hoping to be the first group to achieve this.
Often begin by reviewing the current state of knowledge which allows the author to raise questions and offer answers.
“to our knowledge, there is no prior work that uses”
“published”, “to do/carry out research”, yet
