Phase space representations of chaotic systems, or strange attractors, usually reveal fractal (FRACTALS) self-similarity across time scales. Natural, including biological, systems often display nonlinear dynamics and chaos.Programming, Linear: A technique of operations research for solving certain kinds of problems involving many variables where a best value or set of best values is to be found. It is most likely to be feasible when the quantity to be optimized, sometimes called the objective function, can be stated as a mathematical expression in terms of the various activities within the system, and when this expression is simply proportional to the measure of the activities, i.e., is linear, and when all the restrictions are also linear. It is different from computer programming, although problems using linear programming techniques may be programmed on a computer.Equipment Failure Analysis: The evaluation of incidents involving the loss of function of a device.

In order for hydrogen-powered automobiles to succeed, the fuel needs to be pumped into tanks as easily as gasoline--and without the threat of Hindenburg-like disasters. Sandia National Laboratories recently suggested an alternative technology for synthesizing carbon-based fuels so that the current U.S. fuel distribution system can be used. Now, Ford Motor Co. has emerged with an autocatalytic reaction scheme involving three hydrides that could someday enable hydrogen to be pumped into tanks as easily as gasoline. Te...

Gene Assessment and Sample Classification for Gene Expression Data Using a Genetic Algorithm / k-nearest Neighbor Method Author s : Leping Li, Thomas A. We describe a new method for assessing the importance of genes for sample classification based on expression data. Our approach combines a genetic algorithm GA and the k-nearest neighbor KNN method to identify genes that jointly can discriminate between two types of samples e.g. Identification of a set of differentially expressed genes could aid in tumor diagnosis and could also serve to identify disease subtypes that may benefit from distinct clinical approaches to treatment.

In the second part the main themes were greedy algorithms, dynamic programming and NP-Complete problems. The greedy algorithms covered were:. Independent set of maximum weight Knapsack problem Sequence alignment Optimal binary search trees Bellman-Ford single-source shortest path Floyd-Warshall all pairs shortest path Johnson’s all pairs shortest path. In the second part, there are 500 items, and the knapsack capacity is 2,000,000. For optimal binary search trees, given n items, each with a given probability of being selected, construct the binary search tree that will minimize the average search time for the items. Next were three different algorithms for finding shortest paths in directed graphs. The Bellman-Ford algorithm finds the shortest path from a source node to all other nodes in the graph, and is developed by using the dynamic programming idea of building the solution from the solution to sub-problems. In this case, the sub-problems consist of the shortest path using only a fixed number of edges. In...

IEEE/ACM Transactions on Computational Biology and Bioinformatics. Discriminative Motif Finding for Predicting Protein Subcellular Localization. Many methods have been described to predict the subcellular location of proteins from sequence information. However, most of these methods either rely on global sequence properties or use a set of known protein targeting motifs to predict protein localization. Here, we develop and test a novel method that identifies potential targeting motifs using a discriminative approach based on hidden Markov models discriminative HMMs. Hidden Markov models, maximal mutual information estimate, discriminative motif finding, protein localization.

And the reason is this: if you had a fast algorithm for solving NP-complete problems, then not only could you solve P vs. We believe there’s no algorithm to solve NP-complete problems in deterministic polynomial time. There is no physical means to solve NP-complete problems in polynomial time — not with classical computers, not with quantum computers, not with anything else. We might hope to at least prove that quantum computers can’t solve NP-complete problems in polynomial time unless classical computers can also — but even that, alas, seems far beyond our ability to prove. If quantum computers can’t solve NP-complete problems in polynomial time, it raises an extremely interesting question: is there any physical means to solve NP-complete problems in polynomial time. So, it looks like Nature is solving NP-hard problems in polynomial time. But that didn’t stop two guys a few years ago from writing a paper in which they claimed, not only that soap bubbles solve NP-complete problems in polynomial time, but tha...

*  Preconditioned Alternating Projection Algorithms for Maximum a Posteriori ECT Reconstruction.
... We propose a preconditioned alternating projection algorithm PAPA for solving the maximum a posteriori MAP emission computed tomography ECT reconstruction problem. We then characterize the solution of the constrained convex optimization problem and show that it satisfies a system of fixed-point equations defined in terms of two proximity operators raised from the convex functions that define the TV-norm and the constrain involved in the problem. The characterization of the solution via the proximity operators that define two projection operators naturally leads to an alternating projection algorithm for finding the solution. For efficient numerical computation, we introduce to the alternating projection algorithm a preconditioning matrix the EM-preconditioner for the dense system matrix involved in the optimization problem. In numerical experiments, performance of our algorithms, with an appropriately selected preconditioning matrix, is compared with performance of the conventional MAP expectation-maximi...

*  Nonnegative matrix
... In mathematics, a 'nonnegative matrix' is a matrix in which all the elements are equal to or greater than zero \mathbf{X} \geq 0, \qquad \forall {i,j}\quad x {ij} \geq 0. A 'positive matrix' is a matrix in which all the elements are greater than zero. The set of positive matrices is a subset of all non-negative matrices. While such matrices are commonly found, the term is only occasionally used due to the possible confusion with positive-definite matrices, which are different. A rectangular non-negative matrix can be approximated by a decomposition with two other non-negative matrices via non-negative matrix factorization. A positive matrix is not the same as a positive-definite matrix. A matrix that is both non-negative and positive semidefinite is called a 'doubly non-negative matrix'. Eigenvalues and eigenvectors of square positive matrices are described by the Perron–Frobenius theorem. Inversion Specializations See also Bibliography. Inversion.

... otein Folding - OpenThesis. Upload and Search Theses and Dissertations - OpenThesis. Upload. Search. Help. Fast Stochastic Global Optimization Methods and Their Applications to Cluster Crystallization and Protein Folding. Two global optimization methods are proposed in this thesis. They are the multicanonical basin hopping MUBH method and the basin paving BP method. The MUBH method combines the basin hopping BH method, which can be used to efficiently map out an energy landscape associated with local minima, with the multicanonical Monte Carlo MUCA method, which encourages the system to move out of energy traps during the computation. It is found to be more efficient than the original BH method when applied to the Lennard-Jones systems containing 150-185 particles. The asynchronous multicanonical basin hopping AMUBH method, a parallelization of the MUBH method, is also implemented using the message passing interface MPI to take advantage of the full usage of multiprocessors in either a homogeneous or a he...

... Library : Archie Home : School of Medicine : SOM Faculty and Staff Research : View Item. A topological algorithm for identification of structural domains of proteins. A topological algorithm for identification of structural domains of proteins. Algorithmic methods of dissecting protein of known structure into domains developed so far are based on an examination of multiple geometrical, physical and topological features. These methods are applicable to sequences with known and unknown structure alike, and their success highlights a fundamental principle of protein modularity, but this does not directly improve our understanding of protein spatial structure.RESULTS:We present a novel graph-theoretical algorithm for the identification of domains in proteins with known three-dimensional structure. We represent the protein structure as an undirected, unweighted and unlabeled graph whose nodes correspond to the secondary structure elements and edges represent physical proximity of at least one pair of alpha ca...

*  Peterson's algorithm
... The algorithm Mutual exclusion. Filter algorithm: Peterson's algorithm for more than two processes. The filter algorithm generalizes Peterson's algorithm to processes. The registers can be represented in pseudocode as arrays: level : array of N integers last to enter : array of N−1 integers. Process exits the inner loop when there is either no process with a higher level than, so the next waiting room is free; or, when, so another process joined its waiting room. At level zero, then, even if all processes were to enter waiting room zero at the same time, no more than will proceed to the next room, the final one finding itself the last to enter the room., until at the final level, only one process is allowed to leave the waiting room and enter the critical section, giving mutual exclusion. The algorithm can also be shown to be starvation-free, meaning that all processes that enter the loop eventually exit it assuming they don't stay in the critical section indefinitely. At all lower levels, it is impossib...

*  Neville's algorithm
... In mathematics, 'Neville's algorithm' is an algorithm used for polynomial interpolation that was derived by the mathematician Eric Harold Neville. Given 'n' + 1 points, there is a unique polynomial of degree '≤ n' which goes through the given points. Neville's algorithm evaluates this polynomial. Neville's algorithm is based on the Newton form of the interpolating polynomial and the recursion relation for the divided differences. It is similar to Aitken's algorithm named after Alexander Aitken, which is nowadays not used. The algorithm Application to numerical differentiation References External links. The algorithm. Given a set of 'n'+1 data points 'x' 'i', 'y' 'i' where no two 'x' 'i' are the same, the interpolating polynomial is the polynomial 'p' of degree at most 'n' with the property. :'p' 'x' 'i' = 'y' 'i' for all 'i' = 0,,'n' This polynomial exists and it is unique. Neville's algorithm evaluates the polynomial at some point 'x'. Let 'p' 'i','j' denote the polynomial of degree 'j' 'i' which goes t...

The space of side-chain conformations can be approximated by a discrete space of probabilistically representative side-chain conformations called rotamers. This is called the Global Minimum Energy Conformation GMEC problem. The Dead-End Elimination theorem together with the A* algorithm DEE/A* has been successfully applied to this problem.

*  Berkeley algorithm
... The 'Berkeley algorithm' is a method of clock synchronisation in distributed computing which assumes no machine has an accurate time source. It was developed by Gusella and Zatti at the University of California, Berkeley in 1989. and like Cristian's algorithm is intended for use within intranets. The algorithm. Unlike Cristian's algorithm, the server process in the Berkeley algorithm, called the 'master', periodically polls other 'slave' processes. Generally speaking, the algorithm is:. A 'master' is chosen via an election process such as Chang and Roberts algorithm. The 'master' polls the 'slaves' who reply with their time in a similar way to Cristian's algorithm. The 'master' observes the round-trip time RTT of the messages and estimates the time of each 'slave' and its own. The 'master' then averages the clock times, ignoring any values it receives far outside the values of the others. Instead of sending the updated current time back to the other process, the 'master' then sends out the amount positiv...

*  Prime-factor FFT algorithm
... The 'prime-factor algorithm PFA ', also called the 'Good–Thomas algorithm' 1958/1963, is a fast Fourier transform FFT algorithm that re-expresses the discrete Fourier transform DFT of a size 'N' = 'N' 1 'N' 2 as a two-dimensional 'N' 1 ×'N' 2 DFT, but 'only' for the case where 'N' 1 and 'N' 2 are relatively prime. These smaller transforms of size 'N' 1 and 'N' 2 can then be evaluated by applying PFA recursively or by using some other FFT algorithm. PFA should not be confused with the 'mixed-radix' generalization of the popular Cooley–Tukey algorithm, which also subdivides a DFT of size 'N' = 'N' 1 'N' 2 into smaller transforms of size 'N' 1 and 'N' 2. Although the PFA is distinct from the Cooley–Tukey algorithm, Good's 1958 work on the PFA was cited as inspiration by Cooley and Tukey in their famous 1965 paper, and there was initially some confusion about whether the two algorithms were different. The PFA involves a re-indexing of the input and output arrays, which when substituted into the DFT formula t...

Comments Off on Optimera a multithreaded genetic algorithm library in C#. The problem of finding the global minimum or maximum of an arbitrary multi-parameter function, F x, y, z,, is a common one. The function F could represent the total yield of some system and you want to maximize it, or it could represent the lap-time of a race car and you want to minimize it. If the function F can be analytically expressed, it may be possible to take the derivative and solve F = 0 since F is stationary at the minima and maxima. But in practice there are many optimization problems cannot be tackled analytically. For those cases there are several powerful numerical... Meta. Log in. Entries RSS. Comments...

*  Selection (genetic algorithm)
Selection genetic algorithm. Selection genetic algorithm. 'Selection' is the stage of a genetic algorithm in which individual genomes are chosen from a population for later breeding using the crossover operator. A generic selection procedure may be implemented as follows:. The fitness function is evaluated for each individual, providing fitness values, which are then normalized. Normalization means dividing the fitness value of each individual by the sum of all fitness values, so that the sum of all resulting fitness values equals 1. The population is sorted by descending fitness values. Accumulated normalized fitness values are computed the accumulated fitness value of an individual is the sum of its own fitness value plus the fitness values of all the previous individuals. The accumulated fitness of the last individual should be 1 otherwise something went wrong in the normalization step. A random number 'R' between 0 and 1 is chosen. The selected individual is the first one whose accumulated normalized va...

*  Iterative reconstruction
... thumb|Example showing differences between filtered backprojection right half and iterative reconstruction method left half 'Iterative reconstruction' refers to iterative algorithms used to reconstruct 2D and 3D images in certain imaging techniques. For example, in computed tomography an image must be reconstructed from projections of an object. The reconstruction of an image from the acquired data is an inverse problem. Iterative algorithms approach the correct solution using multiple iteration steps, which allows to obtain a better reconstruction at the cost of a higher computation time. There are a large variety of algorithms, but each starts with an assumed image, computes projections from the image, compares the original projection data and updates the image based upon the difference between the calculated and the actual projections. The advantages of the iterative approach include improved insensitivity to noise and capability of reconstructing an optimal image in the case of incomplete data. In Mag...

RSA Tells Its Developer Customers: Stop Using NSA-Linked Algorithm. By Kim Zetter. September 20, 2013 Change text size:. /. Email this page. Posted in: Uncategorized. No comments Amidst all of the confusion and concern over an encryption algorithm that may contain an NSA backdoor, RSA Security released an advisory to developer customers today noting that the algorithm is the default in one of its toolkits and strongly advising them to stop using the algorithm. The advisory provides developers with information about how to change the default to one of a number of other random number generator algorithms RSA supports and notes that RSA has also changed the default on its end in BSafe and in an RSA key management system. The company is the first to go public with such an announcement in the wake of revelations by the New York Times that the NSA may have inserted an intentional weakness in the algorithm — known as Dual Elliptic Curve Deterministic Random Bit Generation or Dual EC DRBG — and then used its influenc...

DSSP hydrogen bond estimation algorithm. DSSP hydrogen bond estimation algorithm. The 'DSSP' algorithm is the standard method for assigning secondary structure to the amino acid s of a protein, given the atomic-resolution coordinates of the protein. The abbreviation is only mentioned once in the 1983 paper describing this algorithm,. 1 where it is the name of the Pascal program that implements the algorithm 'Define Secondary Structure of Proteins'. DSSP begins by identifying the intra-backbone hydrogen bond s of the protein using a purely electrostatic definition, assuming partial charges of -0.42 'e' and +0.20 'e' to the carbonyl oxygen and amide hydrogen respectively, their opposites assigned to the carbonyl carbon and amide nitrogen. : E = 0.084 \left\{ \frac{1}{r {ON}} + \frac{1}{r {CH}} - \frac{1}{r {OH}} - \frac{1}{r {CN}} \right\} \cdot 332 \, \mathrm{kcal/mol}. Based on this, eight types of secondary structure are assigned. The 3 10 helix, α helix and π helix have symbols 'G', 'H' and 'I' and are re...

The optimization of a large-scale chromatography operation involved a strategy combining bench and pilot scale packing stability studies, and evaluation of hardware limitations at bench and large scales. 1 The effects of resin amount on column stability, hydrodynamic properties of compressible media, process resolution, and targeted recovery were evaluated at the bench scale. A robust packing procedure was developed at pilot scale to optimize system suitability, reduce the time required for packing, and improve process performance. The packing optimization provided an increased bed stability, which offered the basis to extend the number of chromatography cycles per packed column. The faster packing method and reduced frequency for packing reduced labor requirements for this step a...

(1/42270) An effective approach for analyzing "prefinished" genomic sequence data.

Ongoing efforts to sequence the human genome are already generating large amounts of data, with substantial increases anticipated over the next few years. In most cases, a shotgun sequencing strategy is being used, which rapidly yields most of the primary sequence in incompletely assembled sequence contigs ("prefinished" sequence) and more slowly produces the final, completely assembled sequence ("finished" sequence). Thus, in general, prefinished sequence is produced in excess of finished sequence, and this trend is certain to continue and even accelerate over the next few years. Even at a prefinished stage, genomic sequence represents a rich source of important biological information that is of great interest to many investigators. However, analyzing such data is a challenging and daunting task, both because of its sheer volume and because it can change on a day-by-day basis. To facilitate the discovery and characterization of genes and other important elements within prefinished sequence, we have developed an analytical strategy and system that uses readily available software tools in new combinations. Implementation of this strategy for the analysis of prefinished sequence data from human chromosome 7 has demonstrated that this is a convenient, inexpensive, and extensible solution to the problem of analyzing the large amounts of preliminary data being produced by large-scale sequencing efforts. Our approach is accessible to any investigator who wishes to assimilate additional information about particular sequence data en route to developing richer annotations of a finished sequence.  (+info)

(2/42270) A computational screen for methylation guide snoRNAs in yeast.

Small nucleolar RNAs (snoRNAs) are required for ribose 2'-O-methylation of eukaryotic ribosomal RNA. Many of the genes for this snoRNA family have remained unidentified in Saccharomyces cerevisiae, despite the availability of a complete genome sequence. Probabilistic modeling methods akin to those used in speech recognition and computational linguistics were used to computationally screen the yeast genome and identify 22 methylation guide snoRNAs, snR50 to snR71. Gene disruptions and other experimental characterization confirmed their methylation guide function. In total, 51 of the 55 ribose methylated sites in yeast ribosomal RNA were assigned to 41 different guide snoRNAs.  (+info)

(3/42270) Referenceless interleaved echo-planar imaging.

Interleaved echo-planar imaging (EPI) is an ultrafast imaging technique important for applications that require high time resolution or short total acquisition times. Unfortunately, EPI is prone to significant ghosting artifacts, resulting primarily from system time delays that cause data matrix misregistration. In this work, it is shown mathematically and experimentally that system time delays are orientation dependent, resulting from anisotropic physical gradient delays. This analysis characterizes the behavior of time delays in oblique coordinates, and a new ghosting artifact caused by anisotropic delays is described. "Compensation blips" are proposed for time delay correction. These blips are shown to remove the effects of anisotropic gradient delays, eliminating the need for repeated reference scans and postprocessing corrections. Examples of phantom and in vivo images are shown.  (+info)

(4/42270) An evaluation of elongation factor 1 alpha as a phylogenetic marker for eukaryotes.

Elongation factor 1 alpha (EF-1 alpha) is a highly conserved ubiquitous protein involved in translation that has been suggested to have desirable properties for phylogenetic inference. To examine the utility of EF-1 alpha as a phylogenetic marker for eukaryotes, we studied three properties of EF-1 alpha trees: congruency with other phyogenetic markers, the impact of species sampling, and the degree of substitutional saturation occurring between taxa. Our analyses indicate that the EF-1 alpha tree is congruent with some other molecular phylogenies in identifying both the deepest branches and some recent relationships in the eukaryotic line of descent. However, the topology of the intermediate portion of the EF-1 alpha tree, occupied by most of the protist lineages, differs for different phylogenetic methods, and bootstrap values for branches are low. Most problematic in this region is the failure of all phylogenetic methods to resolve the monophyly of two higher-order protistan taxa, the Ciliophora and the Alveolata. JACKMONO analyses indicated that the impact of species sampling on bootstrap support for most internal nodes of the eukaryotic EF-1 alpha tree is extreme. Furthermore, a comparison of observed versus inferred numbers of substitutions indicates that multiple overlapping substitutions have occurred, especially on the branch separating the Eukaryota from the Archaebacteria, suggesting that the rooting of the eukaryotic tree on the diplomonad lineage should be treated with caution. Overall, these results suggest that the phylogenies obtained from EF-1 alpha are congruent with other molecular phylogenies in recovering the monophyly of groups such as the Metazoa, Fungi, Magnoliophyta, and Euglenozoa. However, the interrelationships between these and other protist lineages are not well resolved. This lack of resolution may result from the combined effects of poor taxonomic sampling, relatively few informative positions, large numbers of overlapping substitutions that obscure phylogenetic signal, and lineage-specific rate increases in the EF-1 alpha data set. It is also consistent with the nearly simultaneous diversification of major eukaryotic lineages implied by the "big-bang" hypothesis of eukaryote evolution.  (+info)

(5/42270) Hierarchical cluster analysis applied to workers' exposures in fiberglass insulation manufacturing.

The objectives of this study were to explore the application of cluster analysis to the characterization of multiple exposures in industrial hygiene practice and to compare exposure groupings based on the result from cluster analysis with that based on non-measurement-based approaches commonly used in epidemiology. Cluster analysis was performed for 37 workers simultaneously exposed to three agents (endotoxin, phenolic compounds and formaldehyde) in fiberglass insulation manufacturing. Different clustering algorithms, including complete-linkage (or farthest-neighbor), single-linkage (or nearest-neighbor), group-average and model-based clustering approaches, were used to construct the tree structures from which clusters can be formed. Differences were observed between the exposure clusters constructed by these different clustering algorithms. When contrasting the exposure classification based on tree structures with that based on non-measurement-based information, the results indicate that the exposure clusters identified from the tree structures had little in common with the classification results from either the traditional exposure zone or the work group classification approach. In terms of the defining homogeneous exposure groups or from the standpoint of health risk, some toxicological normalization in the components of the exposure vector appears to be required in order to form meaningful exposure groupings from cluster analysis. Finally, it remains important to see if the lack of correspondence between exposure groups based on epidemiological classification and measurement data is a peculiarity of the data or a more general problem in multivariate exposure analysis.  (+info)

(6/42270) A new filtering algorithm for medical magnetic resonance and computer tomography images.

Inner views of tubular structures based on computer tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance (MR) data sets may be created by virtual endoscopy. After a preliminary segmentation procedure for selecting the organ to be represented, the virtual endoscopy is a new postprocessing technique using surface or volume rendering of the data sets. In the case of surface rendering, the segmentation is based on a grey level thresholding technique. To avoid artifacts owing to the noise created in the imaging process, and to restore spurious resolution degradations, a robust Wiener filter was applied. This filter working in Fourier space approximates the noise spectrum by a simple function that is proportional to the square root of the signal amplitude. Thus, only points with tiny amplitudes consisting mostly of noise are suppressed. Further artifacts are avoided by the correct selection of the threshold range. Afterwards, the lumen and the inner walls of the tubular structures are well represented and allow one to distinguish between harmless fluctuations and medically significant structures.  (+info)

(7/42270) Efficacy of ampicillin plus ceftriaxone in treatment of experimental endocarditis due to Enterococcus faecalis strains highly resistant to aminoglycosides.

The purpose of this work was to evaluate the in vitro possibilities of ampicillin-ceftriaxone combinations for 10 Enterococcus faecalis strains with high-level resistance to aminoglycosides (HLRAg) and to assess the efficacy of ampicillin plus ceftriaxone, both administered with humanlike pharmacokinetics, for the treatment of experimental endocarditis due to HLRAg E. faecalis. A reduction of 1 to 4 dilutions in MICs of ampicillin was obtained when ampicillin was combined with a fixed subinhibitory ceftriaxone concentration of 4 micrograms/ml. This potentiating effect was also observed by the double disk method with all 10 strains. Time-kill studies performed with 1 and 2 micrograms of ampicillin alone per ml or in combination with 5, 10, 20, 40, and 60 micrograms of ceftriaxone per ml showed a > or = 2 log10 reduction in CFU per milliliter with respect to ampicillin alone and to the initial inoculum for all 10 E. faecalis strains studied. This effect was obtained for seven strains with the combination of 2 micrograms of ampicillin per ml plus 10 micrograms of ceftriaxone per ml and for six strains with 5 micrograms of ceftriaxone per ml. Animals with catheter-induced endocarditis were infected intravenously with 10(8) CFU of E. faecalis V48 or 10(5) CFU of E. faecalis V45 and were treated for 3 days with humanlike pharmacokinetics of 2 g of ampicillin every 4 h, alone or combined with 2 g of ceftriaxone every 12 h. The levels in serum and the pharmacokinetic parameters of the humanlike pharmacokinetics of ampicillin or ceftriaxone in rabbits were similar to those found in humans treated with 2 g of ampicillin or ceftriaxone intravenously. Results of the therapy for experimental endocarditis caused by E. faecalis V48 or V45 showed that the residual bacterial titers in aortic valve vegetations were significantly lower in the animals treated with the combinations of ampicillin plus ceftriaxone than in those treated with ampicillin alone (P < 0.001). The combination of ampicillin and ceftriaxone showed in vitro and in vivo synergism against HLRAg E. faecalis.  (+info)

(8/42270) The muscle chloride channel ClC-1 has a double-barreled appearance that is differentially affected in dominant and recessive myotonia.

Single-channel recordings of the currents mediated by the muscle Cl- channel, ClC-1, expressed in Xenopus oocytes, provide the first direct evidence that this channel has two equidistant open conductance levels like the Torpedo ClC-0 prototype. As for the case of ClC-0, the probabilities and dwell times of the closed and conducting states are consistent with the presence of two independently gated pathways with approximately 1.2 pS conductance enabled in parallel via a common gate. However, the voltage dependence of the common gate is different and the kinetics are much faster than for ClC-0. Estimates of single-channel parameters from the analysis of macroscopic current fluctuations agree with those from single-channel recordings. Fluctuation analysis was used to characterize changes in the apparent double-gate behavior of the ClC-1 mutations I290M and I556N causing, respectively, a dominant and a recessive form of myotonia. We find that both mutations reduce about equally the open probability of single protopores and that mutation I290M yields a stronger reduction of the common gate open probability than mutation I556N. Our results suggest that the mammalian ClC-homologues have the same structure and mechanism proposed for the Torpedo channel ClC-0. Differential effects on the two gates that appear to modulate the activation of ClC-1 channels may be important determinants for the different patterns of inheritance of dominant and recessive ClC-1 mutations.  (+info)


How do you make your cauliflower cheese?


So, how do you cook yours? a brief guide to your wonderous dish would be most inspiring; especially for my coursework about algorithms, I want to make my teacher drool. :3
\o/ Wonderful results with the cauliflower cheese recipes, I need more x;
----------

Well I have made this very often and no longer use a recipe.

I usually put the whole cauliflower (which I core as much as possible without breaking it) in boiling water for about 5 minutes, then drain and place into a baking dish.

I make a white sauce, using about 1/2 cup of flour and 1/2 cup of butter, I melt the butter in a good quality non-stick saucepan, stir in the flour and keep stirring it for at least 3 or 4 minutes. Then I gradually stir in about 2 cups of milk, stiring continuously to ensure the sauce remains smooth, adding the milk until it is about the same consistency of yoghurt. Once I have added all the milk I turn the pan to a very low heat and simmer it for 5 or 6 minutes, this ensures the white sauce doesn't taste pasty because of the flour. Once cooked I stir in about an ounce of grated cheddar, and sometimes I mix a little grated mozzarella in as well, and season the sauce with freshly ground black pepper.

I then pour the sauce over the cauliflower. I then grate another 2 ounces of cheese which I mix with fresh bread crumbs (not toasted) using one slice from the crust of a loaf (preferably wholemeal). I then sprinkle this all over the top of the cauliflower and bake it in the oven for about 30 minutes at 350oF.

Everyone seems to enjoy it :o)


It is very delicate balance between soft fluffy white bread, and butter that is too hard to spread?

so, what is it?  I cannot stand another sanwich hole.

hahahaha. This is too funny. I've been there.

I just zap the butter in the microwave for about 15-20 seconds.

Mammography/Thermography - Mammograms can detect many breast cancers, but there is concern over false results and the hazards of radiation exposure that result from the tests. There are two new forms of mammography that are making news: Computed Tomography Laser Mammography and Full Field Digital Mammography. 

The CTLM - Computed Tomography Laser Mammography system uses state-of-the-art laser technology, a special array of detectors and proprietary computed algorithms. The CTLM® system does not expose the patient to ionizing radiation or require breast compression. This approach is awaiting FDA approval.

Digital mammography still uses low energy x-rays that pass through the breast exactly like conventional mammograms but are recorded by means of an electronic digital detector instead of the film. This electronic image can be displayed on a video monitor like a TV or printed onto film. The radiologist can manipulate the digital mammogram electronically to magnify an area, etc.
