This paper presents BCube, a new network architecture specifically designed for shipping-container based, modular data centers. At the core of the BCube architecture is its server-centric network structure, where servers with multiple network ports connect to multiple layers of COTS (commodity off-the-shelf) mini-switches. Servers act as not only end hosts,(More)
Multiple genetic pathways act in response to developmental cues and environmental signals to promote the floral transition, by regulating several floral pathway integrators. These include FLOWERING LOCUS T (FT) and SUPPRESSOR OF OVEREXPRESSION OF CONSTANS 1 (SOC1). We show that the flowering repressor SHORT VEGETATIVE PHASE (SVP) is controlled by the(More)
We consolidate an unorganized point cloud with noise, outliers, non-uniformities, and in particular interference between close-by surface sheets as a preprocess to surface generation, focusing on reliable normal estimation. Our algorithm includes two new developments. First, a <i>weighted locally optimal projection</i> operator produces a set of denoised,(More)
A novel sensor network source localization method based on acoustic energy measurements is presented. This method makes use of the characteristics that the acoustic energy decays exponentially with respect to distance from the source. By comparing energy readings measured at surrounding acoustic sensors within the same time interval, the source location(More)
N etworks of small, densely distributed wireless sensor nodes are being envisioned and developed for a variety of applications involving monitoring and manipulation of the physical world in a tetherless fashion [1], [16], [17], [22], [23]. Typically, each individual node can sense in multiple modalities but has limited communication and computation(More)
— It is challenging to interconnect the large and rapidly growing number of servers in data centers with low cost. In current practice, tree is used and expensive high-speed switches are required in top levels of the tree. As an alternative solution, interconnection intelligence can be put on servers. Commodity servers in data centers often have two NIC(More)
– We outline a framework for collaborative signal processing in distributed sensor networks. The ideas are presented in the context of tracking multiple moving objects in a sensor field. The key steps involved in the tracking procedure include event detection, target classification, and estimation and prediction of target location. Algorithms for various(More)
In this paper, we present a missing data imputation method based on one of the most popular techniques in Knowledge Discovery in Databases (KDD), i.e. clustering technique. We combine the clustering method with soft computing, which tends to be more tolerant of imprecision and uncertainty, and apply a fuzzy clustering algorithm to deal with incomplete data.(More)
—A fundamental goal of data center networking is to efficiently interconnect a large number of servers with the low equipment cost. Several server-centric network structures for data centers have been proposed. They, however, are not truly expandable and suffer a low degree of regularity and symmetry. Inspired by the commodity servers in today's data(More)
PURPOSE To investigate expression, regulation, potential role and targets of miR-195 and miR-497 in breast cancer. EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN The expression patterns of miR-195 and miR-497 were initially examined in breast cancer tissues and cell lines by Northern blotting and quantitative real-time PCR. Combined bisulfite restriction analysis and bisulfite(More)
