Segmentation and clustering (DBSCAN)

The study aims to unravel the molecular bases for the role of Intraflagellar Transport (IFT) 172 in ciliogenesis and in ciliopathy; Trypanosoma brucei, a monocellular parasite, is used as model organism, because of its well-developed flagellum with evolutionarily conserved functional modules.
