In this paper, we describe existing implementations for putting subtitles and captions alongside the HTML5 <video> tag inside Web pages and a proposal for standardizing such approaches, which will make them interoperable and easier to be processed by automated tools. Since video and audio are fundamental data types that any Web user will want to make(More)
A noninvasive method for monitoring communications on DNA was developed from the specificity of resolvase for the arrangement of its recombinational sites. Constraints in DNA structure, caused by interactions between distant sites, can be detected by resolvase as they arise. The method was used to follow the formation and decay of synaptic intermediates(More)
Today, Web browsers can interpret an enormous amount of different file types, including time-continuous data. By consuming an audio or video, however, the hyperlinking functionality of the Web is "left behind" since these files are typically unsearchable, thus not indexed by common text-based search engines. Our XML-based CMML annotation format and the(More)
To make media resources a prime citizen on the Web, we have to go beyond simply replicating digital media files. The Web is based on hyperlinks between Web resources, and that includes hyperlinking out of resources (e.g., from a word or an image within a Web page) as well as hyperlinking into resources (e.g., fragment URIs into Web pages). To turn video and(More)
Communications between distant sites on DNA often depend on the way in which the sites are connected. For example, site-specific recombination catalysed by Tn3 resolvase is most efficient when the 114-base-pair res recombination sites are directly repeated in the same DNA molecule. In vitro a supercoiled plasmid substrate containing two directly repeated(More)
The World Wide Web, with its paradigms of surfing and searching for information, has become the predominant system for computer-based information retrieval. Media resources, however information-rich, only play a minor role in providing information to Web users. While bandwidth (or the lack thereof) may be an excuse for this situation, the lack of surfing(More)
This demonstration introduces the <i>Annodex</i> set of technologies, which enable the creation of Webs of audio and video resources integrated into the searching and surfing infrastructure of the World Wide Web. The demonstration covers the live creation of Annodex content and thus of Webs of video and audio, the setup of a Web server to distribute(More)
The resolvases from the transposons Tn3 and Tn21 are homologous proteins but they possess distinct specificities for the DNA sequence at their respective res sites. The DNA binding domain of resolvase contains an amino acid sequence that can be aligned with the helix-turn-helix motif of other DNA binding proteins. Mutations in the gene for Tn21 resolvase(More)
One of the goals of the Continuous Media Web project<sup>1</sup> is to integrate digital media with the World Wide Web: media documents can hyperlink to and from other documents in the same way that HTML pages do. The dual capabilities of hyperlinking (1) to other documents while viewing a media clip, and (2) into precise time intervals in a media(More)
