We propose a novel group testing method, termed semi-quantitative group testing, motivated by a class of problems arising in genome screening experiments. Semi-quantitative group testing (SQGT) is a (possibly) non-binary pooling scheme that may be viewed as a concatenation of an adder channel and an integer-valued quantizer. In its full generality, SQGT may(More)

—We consider the problem of noiseless and noisy low-rank tensor completion from a set of random linear measurements. In our derivations, we assume that the entries of the tensor belong to a finite field of arbitrary size and that reconstruction is based on a rank minimization framework. The derived results show that the smallest number of measurements(More)
We introduce a novel probabilistic group testing framework, termed Poisson group testing, in which the number of defec-tives follows a right-truncated Poisson distribution. The Pois-son model applies to a number of biological testing scenarios, where the subjects are assumed to be ordered based on their arrival times and where the probability of being(More)
—Metagenomics is an emerging field of molecular biology concerned with analyzing the genomes of environmental samples comprising many different diverse organisms. Given the nature of metagenomic data, one usually has to sequence the genomic material of all organisms in a batch, leading to a mix of reads coming from different DNA sequences. In deep(More)
MOTIVATION Cancer genomes exhibit a large number of different alterations that affect many genes in a diverse manner. An improved understanding of the generative mechanisms behind the mutation rules and their influence on gene community behavior is of great importance for the study of cancer. RESULTS To expand our capability to analyze combinatorial(More)
