Julien Mairal  SoftwareSPAMSSPAMS is an optimization toolbox implementing algorithms to address various machine learning and signal processing problems involving dictionary learning and matrix factorization (e.g., NMF, sparse PCA); solving mediumscale sparse decomposition problems with LARS, coordinate descent, OMP, SOMP, proximal methods; solving largescale sparse estimation problems with stochastic optimization; solving structured sparse decomposition problems (e.g., sparse group lasso, treestructured regularization, structured sparsity with overlapping groups). CKNseqCKNseq is a software package to model biological sequences with convolutional kernel networks. The current implementation corresponds to the BiorXiv preprint “Predicting Transcription Factor Binding Sites withConvolutional Kernel Networks”. FlipFlopFlipFlop is an opensource software, implementing a fast method for de novo transcript discovery and abundance estimation from RNASeq data. It differs from classical approaches such as Cufflinks by simultaneously performing the identification and quantitation tasks using a penalized maximum likelihood approach, which leads to improved precision recall. Other software taking this approach have an exponential complexity in the number of exons of a gene. We use a novel algorithm based on network flow formalism, which gives us a polynomial runtime. In practice, FlipFlop was shown to outperform penalized maximum likelihood based software in terms of speed, and to perform transcript discovery in less than 1/2 second for large genes. FlipFlop 1.0.0 is a user friendly bioconductor R package. It is freely available on the Bioconductor website.
