A total of 37 complete genome sequences of bacteria, archaea, and eukaryotes were compared. The percentage of orthologous genes of each species contained within any of the other 36 genomes was established. In addition, the mean identity of the orthologs was calculated. Several conclusions result: (i) a greater absolute number of orthologs of a given species(More)
The associative computing (ASC) paradigm provides data parallel programming and constant time operations for searching, maximum, and minimum. A model of computation for ASC is given which supports algorithm development and analysis. The single instruction stream version of the model can be supported by current SIMD computers and it is feasible to build a(More)
MOTIVATION As sequenced genomes become larger and sequencing becomes faster, there is a need to develop accurate automated genome comparison techniques and databases to facilitate derivation of genome functionality; identification of enzymes, putative operons and metabolic pathways; and to derive phylogenetic classification of microbes. RESULTS This paper(More)
This paper describes a distributed implementation of a scalable heterogeneous associative logic programming model, and describes an abstract instruction set for the distributed version of the model. Associative computation exploits data parallel computation. The implementation uses PVM for architecture independence, and uses object oriented programming for(More)
The revolutionary growth in the computation speed and memory storage capability has fueled a new era in the analysis of biological data. Hundreds of microbial genomes and many eukaryotic genomes including a cleaner draft of human genome have been sequenced raising the expectation of better control of microorganisms. The goals are as lofty as the development(More)
