Online Mendelian Inheritance in Animals (OMIA) is a comprehensive, annotated catalogue of inherited disorders and other familial traits in animals other than humans and mice. Structured as a comparative biology resource, OMIA is a comprehensive resource of phenotypic information on heritable animal traits and genes in a strongly comparative context,(More)
Toil is portable, open-source workflow software that supports contemporary workflow definition languages and can be used to securely and reproducibly run scientific workflows efficiently at large-scale. To demonstrate Toil, we processed over 20,000 RNA-seq samples to create a consistent meta-analysis of five datasets free of computational batch effects that(More)
Pemetrexed is an antifolate chemotherapy agent that is active in malignant mesothelioma and non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Pneumonitis is a rare side effect of Pemetrexed. We report the case of 72-year-old female with metastatic poorly differentiated lung adenocarcinoma. She was placed on maintenance pemetrexed and developed gradual progressive dyspnea(More)
BACKGROUND Application of different kinds of lasers in clinical and experimental studies causes photobiomodulation that works at localized cellular and humoral level on various biological systems. Increased numbers of fibroblasts, myofibroblast, and degranulation of mast cells have been the observed benefits post-irradiation. OBJECTIVE Was to find out the(More)
INTRODUCTION Primary pulmonary leiomyosacromas are a subset of the rare sarcomatous lung neoplasms, found to be less than 0.5% of the organ's primary malignant tumors (Attanoos et al., 1996). PRESENTATION OF CASE We describe here a case of a 69-year-old woman who presented with heart palpitations, incidentally found to have a large lung mass abutting the(More)
—We demonstrate a spiking neural circuit with timing-dependent adaptive synapses to track contours in a two-dimensional plane. Our model is inspired by the architecture of the 7−neuron network believed to control the thermotaxis behavior in the nematode Caenorhabditis Elegans. However, unlike the C. Elegans network, our sensory neuron only uses the local(More)
Adrenocortical carcinoma (ACC) is a malignant tumour arising from the adrenal cortex, whereas pheochromocytoma is a tumour of the adrenal medulla with occasional presence at extra-adrenal sites. Most of the adrenocortical tumours present clinically with Cushing's syndrome and signs of virilization due to over-production of the respective hormones. It is,(More)
AIMS The study aimed to create and evaluate the educational effectiveness of a digital resource instructing paediatric trainees in a systematic approach to critical and quality observation of normal child development. METHODS A digital educational resource was developed utilising the skills of an expert developmental paediatrician who was videoed(More)
