—We consider a novel group testing procedure, termed semi-quantitative group testing, motivated by a class of problems arising in genome sequence processing. Semi-quantitative group testing (SQGT) is a non-binary pooling scheme that may be viewed as a combination of an adder model followed by a quantizer. For the new testing scheme we define the capacity… (More)

—We describe a generalization of the group testing problem termed symmetric group testing. Unlike in classical binary group testing, the roles played by the input symbols zero and one are " symmetric " while the outputs are drawn from a ternary alphabet. Using an information-theoretic approach, we derive sufficient and necessary conditions for the number of… (More)

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 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)

—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)

—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)
