We show here that the amount of labeled cDNA and its specific activity can play a significant role in the quantitation of microarray experiments. Standard reverse transcription of 2 microg total bacterial RNA with concomitant incorporation of cyanine dye-conjugated nucleotides did not produce enough label for optimal hybridization results in our(More)
Physically based sound models have a " natural " setting in dimensional space: a physical model has a shape and an extent and can be given a position relative to other models. In our experimental system, we place procedurally animated agents in a world of spatially situated physical models. The agents move in the same space as the models and can interact(More)
Directing a group behavior towards interesting and complex motion can and should be intuitive, iterative, and often participatory. Toward this end, we present a choreographic system that enables designers to explore a motion space based on a parametric model of behaviors. Designers may work with the system by moving back and forth through two complementary(More)
In this research, we embed physically-based sound models in a spatial, interactive, multi-modal context to make a workbench for exploring new musical ideas. Instruments made with the workbench make sounds that are physically plausible, and they may be controlled in familiar ways, but they go beyond the physical to do things impossible or difficult to do in(More)
