X-ray fluorescence is used in diagnosis.Biosensing Techniques: Any of a variety of procedures which use biomolecular probes to measure the presence or concentration of biological molecules, biological structures, microorganisms, etc., by translating a biochemical interaction at the probe surface into a quantifiable physical signal.Genetic Markers: A phenotypically recognizable genetic trait which can be used to identify a genetic locus, a linkage group, or a recombination event.Population Surveillance: Ongoing scrutiny of a population (general population, study population, target population, etc.), generally using methods distinguished by their practicability, uniformity, and frequently their rapidity, rather than by complete accuracy.Disease Vectors: Invertebrates or non-human vertebrates which transmit infective organisms from one host to another.Quality Assurance, Health Care: Activities and programs intended to assure or improve the quality of care in either a defined medical setting or a program. The concept includes the assessment or evaluation of the quality of care; identification of problems or shortcomings in the delivery of care; designing activities to overcome these deficiencies; and follow-up monitoring to ensure effectiveness of corrective steps.Fluorescent Dyes: Agents that emit light after excitation by light. The wave length of the emitted light is usually longer than that of the incident light. Fluorochromes are substances that cause fluorescence in other substances, i.e., dyes used to mark or label other compounds with fluorescent tags.Soil: The unconsolidated mineral or organic matter on the surface of the earth that serves as a natural medium for the growth of land plants.Sequence Alignment: The arrangement of two or more amino acid or base sequences from an organism or organisms in such a way as to align areas of the sequences sharing common properties. The degree of relatedness or homology between the sequences is predicted computationally or statistically based on weights assigned to the elements aligned between the sequences. This in turn can serve as a potential indicator of the genetic relatedness between the organisms.Linear Models: Statistical models in which the value of a parameter for a given value of a factor is assumed to be equal to a + bx, where a and b are constants. The models predict a linear regression.Outcome Assessment (Health Care): Research aimed at assessing the quality and effectiveness of health care as measured by the attainment of a specified end result or outcome. Measures include parameters such as improved health, lowered morbidity or mortality, and improvement of abnormal states (such as elevated blood pressure).Gene Library: A large collection of DNA fragments cloned (CLONING, MOLECULAR) from a given organism, tissue, organ, or cell type. It may contain complete genomic sequences (GENOMIC LIBRARY) or complementary DNA sequences, the latter being formed from messenger RNA and lacking intron sequences.Immunoassay: A technique using antibodies for identifying or quantifying a substance. Usually the substance being studied serves as antigen both in antibody production and in measurement of antibody by the test substance.Forecasting: The prediction or projection of the nature of future problems or existing conditions based upon the extrapolation or interpretation of existing scientific data or by the application of scientific methodology.Haplotypes: The genetic constitution of individuals with respect to one member of a pair of allelic genes, or sets of genes that are closely linked and tend to be inherited together such as those of the MAJOR HISTOCOMPATIBILITY COMPLEX.DNA, Bacterial: Deoxyribonucleic acid that makes up the genetic material of bacteria.Biomass: Total mass of all the organisms of a given type and/or in a given area. (From Concise Dictionary of Biology, 1990) It includes the yield of vegetative mass produced from any given crop.Analysis of Variance: A statistical technique that isolates and assesses the contributions of categorical independent variables to variation in the mean of a continuous dependent variable.Diagnostic Imaging: Any visual display of structural or functional patterns of organs or tissues for diagnostic evaluation. It includes measuring physiologic and metabolic responses to physical and chemical stimuli, as well as ultramicroscopy.Biological Evolution: The process of cumulative change over successive generations through which organisms acquire their distinguishing morphological and physiological characteristics.

*  Generalizability theory
... It is used to determine the reliability i.e., reproducibility of measurements under specific conditions. Facets are similar to the “factors” used in analysis of variance, and may include persons, raters, items/forms, time, and settings among other possibilities. These facets are potential sources of error and the purpose of generalizability theory is to quantify the amount of error caused by each facet and interaction of facets. From one rater to a larger number of raters. In most cases, the object of measurement will be the person to whom a number/score is assigned. By employing simulated D studies, it is therefore possible to examine how the generalizability coefficients similar to reliability coefficients in Classical test theory would change under different circumstances, and consequently determine the ideal conditions under which our measurements would be the most reliable. The focus of classical test theory CTT is on determining error of the measurement. Although 'e' could represent many different ...

Date: February 24, 2014 Source: International Association for the Study of Lung Cancer Summary: Routine testing with both fluorescent in situ hybridization and immunohistochemistry may enhance the detection of ALK-positive non-small cell lung cancer, new research suggests. The findings of a recent study indicate that routine testing with both fluorescent in situ hybridization FISH and immunohistochemistry IHC may enhance the detection of ALK -positive non-small cell lung cancer NSCLC. As such, the use of FISH or IHC alone would have missed approximately 25% of ALK-positive cases. Most discordant results were FISH-positive/IHC-negative 36 cases ; FISH-negative/IHC-positive results were found in 19 cases, and FISH-noncontributive/IHC-positive results were found in 15 cases.

*  Stochastic measurement procedure
Because of this uncertainty with respect to the future outcome of the measurement process, it is generally impossible to determine the true value of the measurand. Consequently, the measurement process is represented by a variable 'X' which is called a random variable. It is impossible to determine the true value of the measurand by means of the measurement process because of randomness. Such a set constitutes the measurement result and it is called "correct" if it contains the true value of the measurand and wrong if not. A measurement procedure is specified by the measurand given by the deterministic variable 'D', a measurement device that defines the admitted measurement range denoted \mathfrak{D} and the measurement process represented by the random variable 'X', and finally the measurement function C D { \beta } which assigns to each observation \{x\} with respect to the random variable 'X' an measurement result C D { \beta } \{x\}. In traditional metrology, "measurement precision" and "measurement accur...

*  The Dog Zombie: Why do other measurements of stress suck worse than cortisol?
The Dog Zombie: Why do other measurements of stress suck worse than cortisol. The Dog Zombie. Dogs. Science. Tuesday, July 13, 2010. Cortisol is a messenger used by the HPA hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis, for the brain to send a message about stress levels out to the body, for the body to pass that message along to the organs that need to change their operations as a result, and for the body to then report back to the brain that the message has been received, so the brain can stop yelling about it. The hormone that the pituitary gland releases as part of the HPA axis is ACTH adrenocorticotropic hormone, or the hormone that makes the adrenal cortex change. The owners of your hospitalized dogs aren t going to be happy if you tell them you need to draw blood from their dogs for your study. The body uses CBG as a way of regulating the stress response. This axis works much more quickly than the HPA. If you had a very controlled population of animals, with catheters already placed that they were used to, so th...

Loading the same amount of DNA based on OD260 measuring from different samples in agarose gel, however, gives a significantly different fluorecent intensity. Should I trust the result from OD measuring or from agarose gel. 1 RNAse converts RNA to small oligos and nucleotides. These absorb light even more strongly than the RNA did, and with the same spectrum as RNA or DNA.

Exxon Research & Engineering Co. Sulfated ash test method ASTM D 874 has long been used as a quantitative measure of the ash forming metallic constituents in the lubricating oils and additives. Because of the complexity of the salts that are formed, it is not possible to predict the sulfated ash values from the elemental compositions for the additive packages which are based on the newer technology. Thus, unless the product sulfated ash specifications are based on experimentally obtained values, there is a high probability that there will be continuous disagreements between the manufactures who make their product based on s...

How Safe Is Your Drinking Water Supply. The Role of ASTM Standards in Monitoring Ground-Water Quality. It is critical to ensure that the samples have not been biased during sample collection, which can easily occur when the very low detection limits for critical water-quality parameters are considered. Simple things, like poor housekeeping practices followed during sampling events, can result in the introduction of surface contaminants into monitoring wells and into samples, which can result in the detection of artificially high contaminant levels in samples positive bias. The guides and practices produced by D18.21 help ground-water sampling field personnel avoid introducing error and bias into the ground-water sampling process. Once in the field, samplers who do not follow correct field practices can introduce negative and/or positive bias to samples being collected in virtually every step of the sampling process. To assist in making critical decisions regarding how wells should be purged of water prior to ...

Especially when you are wrenchin’ on something unusual – a Wartburg, an ancient Datsun or any car that has had an engine swap. At most chain parts stores, the first thing they do is punch in the year, make and model of your car. No matter what you are asking for. And the pimply-faced kid behind the counter has no concept of simple mechanics. Say you just need a set of spark plugs. After all the info is punched in, you might be asked with a straight face, “Is that a diesel or gas motor?” Which usually stuns me into silence, an un-uttered “Ummmmmmmmm…” just waiting to escape from my dropped jaw. If you are mixing and matching parts from different manufacturers, be ready for that sideways head-turn and dog-like look of confusion. “You need a set of pads for an ’85 Volvo 245 and front rotors for a ’93 Nissan Altima, for a ’67 Datsun What.

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...

Many methods have been described to predict the subcellular location of proteins from sequence information.

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...

In this paper an optimal algorithm for scheduling requests on interleaved memories is presented.

*  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. The inverse of any non-singular M-matrix is a non-negati...

... 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...

*  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...

*  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...

Filed Under Google PageRank & Algorithm Updates. Prev Story Next story Tweet. Pin It. Prev Story Next Story There seems to be a Google Toolbar PageRank update going on right now. We have threads on the topic at WebmasterWorld, DigitalPoint Forums and HighRankings Forum. The update seemed to have started sometime yesterday afternoon and many SEOs and webmasters are chatting about it now. The last PageRank update prior to this one was in June 2009, which may have just been a technical quirk because the one prior to that was just a month before in May. In any event, like I say every time: Yes, a Toolbar PageRank update means nothing in terms of your ranking changing anytime soon. The PageRank scores shown in the toolbar are outdated and have zero direct impact on your Google rankings. That doesn't mean that PageRank has no influence, but the t...

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. 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...

A following graph given by Matt Cutts see in links at bottom shows how the PR is transmitted through the links, internal or external. We see that the PR is divided by the number of links and shared between pages. When a link has the nofollow attribute, the link is ignored in order and the PR is divided among the other pages.

Chromatography Optimization Strategy Robust packing procedures can improve process performance and increase resin lifetime. 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...

(1/179) The two-dimensional IR nonlinear spectroscopy of a cyclic penta-peptide in relation to its three-dimensional structure.

A form of two-dimensional (2D) vibrational spectroscopy, which uses two ultrafast IR laser pulses, is used to examine the structure of a cyclic penta-peptide in solution. Spectrally resolved cross peaks occur in the off-diagonal region of the 2D IR spectrum of the amide I region, analogous to those in 2D NMR spectroscopy. These cross peaks measure the coupling between the different amide groups in the structure. Their intensities and polarizations relate directly to the three-dimensional structure of the peptide. With the help of a model coupling Hamiltonian, supplemented by density functional calculations, the spectra of this penta-peptide can be regenerated from the known solution phase structure. This 2D-IR measurement, with an intrinsic time resolution of less than 1 ps, could be used in all time regimes of interest in biology.  (+info)

(2/179) Molecular and epidemiological characterization of vaginal Saccharomyces cerevisiae isolates.

Although vaginitis caused by Saccharomyces cerevisiae is extremely rare, in recent years we have experienced an increasing frequency of S. cerevisiae isolation from the vaginas of fertile-age women. In order to investigate the epidemiology of these vaginal infections, a total of 40 isolates of S. cerevisiae derived from symptomatic and asymptomatic women were characterized by two DNA typing approaches, named ribosomal DNA (rDNA) hybridization and Ty917 hybridization, based on the Southern blotting technique. After transfer, the polymorphic DNA restriction fragments were hybridized with the entire repeat of S. cerevisiae rDNA for one method and with the entire sequence of the Ty917 retrotransposon for the other. After elaboration with computer-assisted analysis, the results of each method showed that Ty917 hybridization is endowed with a discriminatory power higher than that of rDNA hybridization. With the Ty917 hybridization method, all of the S. cerevisiae isolates tested appeared very heterogeneous, with the exception of those collected from individual patients with recurrent vaginitis. This allowed us to exclude a possible common source of infection while the high relatedness among S. cerevisiae sequential isolates from recurrent-vaginitis patients could suggest a pattern of relapse rather than frequent reinfection.  (+info)

(3/179) DNA computing the Hamiltonian path problem.

The directed Hamiltonian path (DHP) problem is one of the hard computational problems for which there is no practical algorithm on a conventional computer available. Many problems, including the traveling sales person problem and the longest path problem, can be translated into the DHP problem, which implies that an algorithm for DHP can also solve all the translated problems. To study the robustness of the laboratory protocol of the pioneering DNA computing for the DHP problem performed by Leonard Adleman (1994), we investigated how the graph size, multiplicity of the Hamiltonian paths, and the size of oligonucleotides that encode the vertices would affect the laboratory procedures. We applied Adleman's protocol with 18-mer oligonucleotide per node to a graph with 8 vertices and 14 edges containing two Hamiltonian paths (Adleman used 20-mer oligonucleotides for a graph with 7 nodes, 14 edges and one Hamiltonian path). We found that depending on the graph characteristics such as the number of short cycles, the oligonucleotide size, and the hybridization conditions that used to encode the graph, the protocol should be executed with different parameters from Adleman's.  (+info)

(4/179) An ontology for biological function based on molecular interactions.

MOTIVATIONS: A number of important bioinformatics computations involve computing with function: executing computational operations whose inputs or outputs are descriptions of the functions of biomolecules. Examples include performing functional queries to sequence and pathway databases, and determining functional equality to evaluate algorithms that predict function from sequence. A prerequisite to computing with function is the existence of an ontology that provides a structured semantic encoding of function. Functional bioinformatics is an emerging subfield of bioinformatics that is concerned with developing ontologies and algorithms for computing with biological function. RESULTS: The article explores the notion of computing with function, and explains the importance of ontologies of function to bioinformatics. The functional ontology developed for the EcoCyc database is presented. This ontology can encode a diverse array of biochemical processes, including enzymatic reactions involving small-molecule substrates and macromolecular substrates, signal-transduction processes, transport events, and mechanisms of regulation of gene expression. The ontology is validated through its use to express complex functional queries for the EcoCyc DB. CONTACT: pkarp@ai.sri.com  (+info)

(6/179) Graphically-enabled integration of bioinformatics tools allowing parallel execution.

Rapid analysis of large amounts of genomic data is of great biological as well as medical interest. This type of analysis will greatly benefit from the ability to rapidly assemble a set of related analysis programs and to exploit the power of parallel computing. TurboGenomics, which is a software package currently in its alpha-testing phase, allows integration of heterogeneous software components to be done graphically. In addition, the tool is capable of making the integrated components run in parallel. To demonstrate these abilities, we use the tool to develop a Web-based application that allows integrated access to a set of large-scale sequence data analysis programs used by a transposon-insertion based yeast genome project. We also contrast the differences in building such an application with and without using the TurboGenomics software.  (+info)

(7/179) Computerized reminders for five preventive screening tests: generation of patient-specific letters incorporating physician preferences.

Compliance with preventive screening tests is inadequate in the United States. We describe a computer based system for generating reminder letters to patients who may have missed their indicated screening tests because they do not visit a provider regularly or missed their tests despite the fact that they do visit a provider. We started with national recommendations and generated a local consensus for test indications. We then used this set of indications and our electronic record to determine test deficiencies in our pilot pool of 3073 patients. The computer generated customized reminder letters targeting several tests. Physicians chose any patients who should not receive letters. The response rate for fecal occult blood (FOB) testing was 33% compared with an 18% historical compliance rate within the same community. FOB reminders generated improved test compliance. Test execution must be considered when commencing a program of screening test reminders.  (+info)

(8/179) Six-fold speed-up of Smith-Waterman sequence database searches using parallel processing on common microprocessors.

MOTIVATION: Sequence database searching is among the most important and challenging tasks in bioinformatics. The ultimate choice of sequence-search algorithm is that of Smith-Waterman. However, because of the computationally demanding nature of this method, heuristic programs or special-purpose hardware alternatives have been developed. Increased speed has been obtained at the cost of reduced sensitivity or very expensive hardware. RESULTS: A fast implementation of the Smith-Waterman sequence-alignment algorithm using Single-Instruction, Multiple-Data (SIMD) technology is presented. This implementation is based on the MultiMedia eXtensions (MMX) and Streaming SIMD Extensions (SSE) technology that is embedded in Intel's latest microprocessors. Similar technology exists also in other modern microprocessors. Six-fold speed-up relative to the fastest previously known Smith-Waterman implementation on the same hardware was achieved by an optimized 8-way parallel processing approach. A speed of more than 150 million cell updates per second was obtained on a single Intel Pentium III 500 MHz microprocessor. This is probably the fastest implementation of this algorithm on a single general-purpose microprocessor described to date.  (+info)

Should i use cold or hot compresses for hand strain pain from computing?


Between the mouse and the bike brake my right hand is killing me. What should i use, hot or cold compresses? The pain is mostly along the outside, and i do tend to get it in my wrist and forearm sometimes too. Why sometimes cold, why sometimes hot?
----------

The general rule of thumb (ha ha) is cold for new injuries, heat for old.  So when you are feeling newly injured, use ice/cold.  When an old injury is aching, use heat.  Cold reduces inflammation, heat ease up tightness.  It sounds like for right now you want cold, unless this is a chronic and recurring problem, then you want heat.

Tinnitus is extremely common and usually does not pose a problem although it can be annoying.  There are a few causes of tinnitus and sometimes it's idiopathic -- we don't know why a particular person has it.  Your laptop is not exacerbating it.  One of the causes is hypertension, another is hypernatremia (escessive serum sodium).  You can try reducing or eliminating sodium from your diet.  If you know you have hypertension, manage it more effectively.  If you have undiagnosed hypertension, have your blood pressure checked at three different times and at three different times of day to find out.  It can also be caused by repeated concussion to the ear, as with earphones or earbuds and music at high volume.  Turn down the volume.

If these are fine and not a problem, you may want to get a referral to an ENT to find out if there's a treatable organic cause for the tinnitus.

----------

Neck pain can be due to several reasons, but then common onces are due to the body posture. I have had problems with neck problem as most of the time my work is to sit and do programming stuff. I have found out couple of things that if you do simple modifications in your daily routine it makes a huge difference when it comes to neck pain. The first thing as I said is body posture, make sure that you sit straight keeping your backbone straight. This itself makes a lot of difference. The more you tend to bend forward the more neck pain you would get in future. Make sure you always walk keeping your head up straight and keeping you back bone straight, dont stoop your backbone at any case whilt walking least you have to pick something. While you sleep try to adjust your pillows which are comfortable to you, the best would be not to use pillow but then some people like me cannot sleep without a pillow, so make sure you have a good posture when you sleep also. Dont forget to get some physical activity as without that and excersise you body tends to show up more signs in the form of pain in some form or other. Initially make sure to get a good stretch atleast to make the muscles feels good. Drink lot of water as it removes toxins from body ofcourse it has nothing to directly to your neck pain, but then neck comes through stress and if you drink good amount of water it can be a good stress buster. Remember to get good sleep as it too adds up to neck pain. hope this helps you. I have tried these myself so I am suggestion you.


how Much Calories Is burnt For Computing ?


I Use the computer almost 18h daily since i have no skool . I do some programming softwares, Surfing net, Watching movies.
I feel Tired doing these. Also i am skinny and trying to put on wait. Trying to add more calories, but still The same weight.
Want to ask am i burning my calories with my PC
----------

No, you aren't burning up your calories with your PC. Computing doesn't burn a lot of calories. If that were the case, then many office workers would be thin, but the opposite is true. You didn't say your age but from the fact that you mentioned school, and seeing how you're on the computer for 18 hours per day you obviously don't have a job, I'm going to assume you're young. If that's the case, then you probably just have a fast metabolism. Give it a few years, once your metabolism slows down, your sedentary lifestyle will catch up to you and you will certainly gain that weight.
