DrPOCS: Drug repositioning based on projection onto convex sets.
Wang YY, Cui CF, Qi LY, Yan H, Zhao XM.
IEEE/ACM Transactions on Computational Biology and Bioinformatics (2018)

In this paper, by formulating the drug-disease associations as a low-rank matrix, we propose a novel method, namely DrPOCS, to identify candidate indications of old drugs based on projection onto convex sets (POCS).

MVP: a microbe-phage interaction database.
Gao NL, Zhang C, Zhang Z, Hu S, Lercher MJ, Zhao XM, Bork P, Liu Z, Chen WH.
Nucleic Acids Research (2018)

The main purpose of MVP (Microbe Versus Phage) is to provide a comprehensive catalog of phage–microbe interactions and assist users to select phage(s) that can target (and potentially to manipulate) specific microbes of interest.
