The relationship between chromatin structure and gene expression is a subject of intense study. The universal transcriptional activator Gal4 removes promoter nucleosomes as it triggers transcription, but how it does so has remained obscure. The reverse process, repression of transcription, has often been correlated with the presence of nucleosomes. But it(More)
See Scherer (doi:10.1093/awv279) for a scientific commentary on this article.Charcot-Marie-Tooth type 1 neuropathies are inherited disorders of the peripheral nervous system caused by mutations in Schwann cell-related genes. Typically, no causative cure is presently available. Previous preclinical data of our group highlight the low grade, secondary(More)
In this work we present an efficient GPU implementation of the Fast Directional Chamfer Matching (FDCM) algorithm [10]. We propose some extensions to the original FDCM algorithm. In particular, we extend the algorithm to handle templates with variable size, to account for perspective effects. To the best of our knowledge, our work is the first to present a(More)
A stereo vision system for detecting 3D-objects is presented. T h e method uses a pair of externally un-calibrated cameras and is able t o detect objects located on a staircase. Detection is based on differencing stereo pair images, where a warping transform is used to overlay the left onto the right image, and vice versa. The 3D camera positions are(More)
