BACKGROUND Several methods have been used to induce somatic cells to re-enter the pluripotent state. Viral transduction of reprogramming genes yields higher efficiency but involves random insertions of viral sequences into the human genome. Although induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells can be obtained with the removable PiggyBac transposon system or an(More)
Conceptually, fast server-side page cache storage could dramatically reduce paging I/O. In this workshop extended abstract, we speculate how such a device might be used, then show how it can be implemented virtually in a hypervisor. We then introduce hcache (pronounced " aitch-cash "), our prototype implementation built on the Xen hypervisor and utilized by(More)
Bioprocess forces such as shear stress experienced during routine cell culture are considered to be harmful to cells. However, the impact of physical forces on cell behavior is an area of growing interest within the tissue engineering community, and it is widely acknowledged that mechanical stimulation including shear stress can enhance osteogenic(More)
Bite mark injuries often feature in violent crimes. Conventional morphometric methods for the forensic analysis of bite marks involve elements of subjective interpretation that threaten the credibility of this field. Human DNA recovered from bite marks has the highest evidentiary value, however recovery can be compromised by salivary components. This study(More)
Despite the current high capacity and speed of computers, the efficient storage of spatial data is still a cutting edge issue, most notably in the context of mobile devices. Processing power, limited storage and small display on mobile devices all mean that algorithms which efficiently summarize spatial data, reducing its size, have relevance.(More)
