Powerful mainstream computing equipment and the advent of affordable multi-Gigabit communication technology permit us to address data acquisition problems with clusters of inexpensive computers. Such networks typically incorporate heterogeneous platforms, real-time partitions and custom devices. We strive therefore for a software infrastructure that(More)
BACKGROUND The variable penetrance of breast cancer in BRCA1/2 mutation carriers suggests that other genetic or environmental factors modify breast cancer risk. Two genes of special interest are prohibitin (PHB) and methylene-tetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR), both of which are important either directly or indirectly in maintaining genomic integrity. (More)

Such networks typically incorporate heterogeneous platforms, real-time partitions and custom devices. Therefore, one must strive for a software infrastructure that(More)
The data acquisition system for the CMS experiment at the large hadron collider (LHC) will require a large and high performance event building network. Several switch technologies are currently being evaluated in order to compare different architectures for the event builder. One candidate is Myrinet. This paper describes the demonstrator which has been(More)

Traditional systems dominated by performance constraints tend to neglect other qualities such a maintainability and configurability. Object-Orientation allows one to encapsulate the technology differences in communication subsystems and to provide a uniform view of data transport layer to the systems engineer. We applied this paradigm to the design and(More)
In the CMS data acquisition system, the readout unit is a fast buffering device for short-term storage of event fragments. It interfaces front-end devices and builder data network. The current Readout Unit prototypes are based on two homegrown hardware boards, the Readout Unit Memory (RUM) and the Readout Unit I/O (RUIO). These boards are equipped with an(More)
We present results on strange and multistrange particle production in Au + Au collisions at √ s NN = 62.4 GeV as measured with the STAR detector at RHIC. Midrapidity transverse momentum spectra and integrated yields of K 0 S , , , and and their antiparticles are presented for different centrality classes. The particle yields and ratios follow a smooth(More)
High p T nonphotonic electron production in p þ p collisions at ffiffi ffi s p ¼ 200 GeV We present the measurement of nonphotonic electron production at high transverse momentum (p T > 2:5 GeV=c) in p þ p collisions at ffiffi ffi s p ¼ 200 GeV using data recorded during 2005 and 2008 by the STAR experiment at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC). The(More)
