The uptake of a sugar across the boundary membrane is a primary event in the nutrition of most cells, but the hydrophobic nature of the transport proteins involved makes them difficult to characterize. Their amino-acid sequences can, however, be determined by cloning and sequencing the corresponding gene (or complementary DNA). We have determined the(More)
Many extensions of the standard model of particle physics suggest that neutrinos should be Majorana-type fermions-that is, that neutrinos are their own anti-particles-but this assumption is difficult to confirm. Observation of neutrinoless double-β decay (0νββ), a spontaneous transition that may occur in several candidate nuclei, would verify the Majorana(More)

There is an ever-growing pressure to accelerate computer vision applications on embedded processors for wide-ranging equipment including mobile phones, network cameras, and automotive safety systems. Towards this goal, we propose a software library approach that eases common computational bottlenecks by optimizing over 60 lowand mid-level vision kernels.(More)

We have explored pattern recognition by examining how observers identify letters. We expected 26-way classification of familiar forms to challenge the popular notion of independent feature detection (“probability summation”), but find instead that this theory parsimoniously accounts for our results. We measured the contrast required for identification of a(More)
