- * SeekMiner accepts a set of genes as query in order to perform a weighted compendium 
- * search for additional genes that are coexpressed with the query genes. 
- * SeekMiner finds and integrates relevant datasets by using one of the many dataset weighting
- * algorithms, including the cross-validated query-coexpression weighting, the order statistics 
- * weighting, etc. 
- * These search algorithms are designed to be quick and efficient, and enable fast weight computations
- * for thousands of microarray datasets.
+ * SeekMiner returns a gene-ranking based on the coexpressions to the user-specified
+ * query genes. It finds relevant datasets by using one of the many dataset weighting
+ * algorithms, including the query-coexpression weighting, the order statistics 
+ * weighting, etc. Afterward, it performs a weighted integration of coexpressions
+ * using the computed dataset weights.
+ * The search algorithms employed by Seek are designed to be quick and efficient, and
+ * they support the real-time weight calculations for thousands of microarray

  * SeekServer runs the coexpression mining algorithm using a multithreaded TCP/IP interface.
- * When it is running, SeekServer services multiple connected clients over the network on requests for
- * genes that co-express with the client's query genes, and for datasets that are related to the query genes.

+ * When it is running, SeekServer services requests over the network from multiple connected clients
+ * for genes that co-express with the client's query genes.
+ * SeekServer sends two lists to the client upon finishing the query search: 1) 
+ * a list of genes that are found by the algorithm to be coexpressed with the query genes, and 2) a list of datasets
+ * where this coexpression with the query is found to be occurring.

Tip: Filter by directory path e.g. /media app.js to search for public/media/app.js.
Tip: Use camelCasing e.g. ProjME to search for ProjectModifiedEvent.java.
Tip: Filter by extension type e.g. /repo .js to search for all .js files in the /repo directory.
Tip: Separate your search with spaces e.g. /ssh pom.xml to search for src/ssh/pom.xml.
Tip: Use ↑ and ↓ arrow keys to navigate and return to view the file.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Ctrl+j (next) and Ctrl+k (previous) and view the file with Ctrl+o.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Alt+j (next) and Alt+k (previous) and view the file with Alt+o.
