We have identified and characterized 95 mutations that reduce or abolish dye filling of amphid and phasmid neurons and that have little effect on viability, fertility or movement. Twenty-seven mutations occurred spontaneously in strains with a high frequency of transposon insertion. Sixty-eight were isolated after treatment with EMS. All of the mutations(More)
Twelve new X chromosome duplications were identified and characterized. Eight are translocated to autosomal sites near four different telomeres, and four are free. Ten include unc-1(+), which in wild type is near the left end of the X chromosome, and two of these, mnDp72(X;IV) and mnDp73(X;f), extend rightward past dpy-3. Both mnDp72 and mnDp73 recombined(More)
Eight dominant X-chromosome nondisjunction mutants have been identified and characterized. Hermaphrodites (XX) heterozygous for any one of the mutations produce 20-35% male (XO) self-progeny compared with the wild-type frequency of 0.2%. Seven of the eight mutants carry X-autosome translocations. Three of these, represented by mnT2, involve linkage group(More)
The translocation mnT12(IV;X) is a fusion of holocentric chromosomes IV and X, the breakpoints occurring near the left end of IV and the right end of X. Animals homozygous for mnT12 are viable and fertile; they contain five pairs of chromosomes rather than the normal set of six pairs. The mnT12 chromosome is larger than all wild-type chromosomes and thus(More)
Large-scale storage systems are crucial components in data-intensive applications such as search engine clusters, video-on-demand servers, sensor networks and grid computing. A storage server typically consists of a set of storage devices. In such systems, data layouts may need to be reconfigured over time for load balancing or in the event of system(More)
We have generated C. elegans animals that carry a duplication as a free chromosome fragment bearing an ace-1+ gene in an otherwise homozygous ace-1 ace-2 genetic background. The single ace-1+ gene in these animals is responsible for coordinated animal movement and acetylcholinesterase activity in the regions of the nerve ring and ventral and dorsal nerve(More)
We consider a variant of edge coloring problem, which arises in multi-channel wireless networks. We are given a graph´Îε, and constraint Ú for each Ú, which is the number of colors that edges incident to Ú can use. In addition, we have a constraint on the number of colors available in the network (denoted as). For a pair of edges incident to a vertex, they(More)
A fundamental problem in distributed computing is the problem of cooperatively executing a given set of tasks in a dynamic setting. The challenge is to minimize the total work done and to maintain efficiency in the face of dynamically changing processor connectivity. In this setting, work is defined as the total number of tasks performed (counting(More)
