The genome of the japonica subspecies of rice, an important cereal and model monocot, was sequenced and assembled by whole-genome shotgun sequencing. The assembled sequence covers 93% of the 420-megabase genome. Gene predictions on the assembled sequence suggest that the genome contains 32,000 to 50,000 genes. Homologs of 98% of the known maize, wheat, and(More)
New strategies for prevention and treatment of type 2 diabetes (T2D) require improved insight into disease etiology. We analyzed 386,731 common single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in 1464 patients with T2D and 1467 matched controls, each characterized for measures of glucose metabolism, lipids, obesity, and blood pressure. With collaborators (FUSION and(More)
DNA sequence analysis has multiple forensic applications. The justice system currently uses sizes of STRs as well as mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) for DNA evidence. With recent advancements in DNA sequencing technologies, inclusion of additional polymorphic loci, including SNPs, enable new useful analyses while maintaining backwards compatibility with STR(More)
The size and scope of standoff multimodal biometric datasets can be increased through the adoption of a common architecture to collect, describe, archive, and analyze subject traits. The Extendable Multimodal Biometric Evaluation Range (EMBER) system developed by MIT Lincoln Laboratory is a field-ready, easily adaptable architecture to streamline(More)
