Abstract [en]

Background: Assembly and function of neuronal synapses require the coordinated expression of a yet undetermined set of genes. Although roughly a thousand genes are expected to be important for this function in Drosophila melanogaster, just a few hundreds of them are known so far. Results: In this work we trained three learning algorithms to predict a synaptic function for genes of Drosophila using data from a whole-body developmental transcriptome published by others. Using statistical and biological criteria to analyze and combine the predictions, we obtained a gene catalogue that is highly enriched in genes of relevance for Drosophila synapse assembly and function but still not recognized as such. Conclusions: The utility of our approach is that it reduces the number of genes to be tested through hypothesis-driven experimentation.
