—A core mission of the Integrated Digitized Biocollections (iDigBio) project is the building and deployment of a cloud computing environment customized to support the digitization workflow and integration of data from all U.S. non-federal biocollections. iDigBio chose to use cloud computing technologies to deliver a cyberinfrastructure that is flexible,(More)
AIM Sustained virologic response (SVR) can be attained with boceprevir plus peginterferon alfa and ribavirin (PR) in up to 68% of patients, and short duration therapy is possible if plasma HCV RNA levels are undetectable at treatment week 8 (TW8 response). We have developed predictive models for SVR, and TW8 response using data from boceprevir clinical(More)
This paper presents a technique for the absolute calibration of hydrophones using a novel optical method. The method uses a thin, optically reflecting membrane suspended in the acoustic field to allow optical measurement of the acoustic particle velocity using a Doppler interferometer. The hydrophone under test is then substituted for the pellicle, and the(More)
Digital signal processing (DSP) techniques for biological sequence analysis continue to grow in popularity due to the inherent digital nature of these sequences. DSP methods have demonstrated early success for detection of coding regions in a gene. Recently, these methods are being used to establish DNA gene similarity. We present the inter-coefficient(More)
Strengthening a theorem of Hjorth this paper gives a new characterization of which Polish groups admit compatible complete left invariant metrics. As a corollary it is proved that any Polish group without a complete left invariant metric has a continuous action on a Polish space whose associated orbit equivalence relation is not essentially countable.
