UNLABELLED Next-generation sequencing is producing vast amounts of sequence information from natural and engineered ecosystems. Although this data deluge has an enormous potential to transform our lives, knowledge creation and translation need software applications that scale with increasing data processing and analysis requirements. Here, we present(More)
In estimating age of juveniles and adolescents, the teeth are employed primarily because of its low variability and less affection by endocrine and nutritional status in development. Demirjian established criteria for evaluating maturity of teeth and his method has been used throughout the world. However, several studies showed the inappropriateness of(More)
The present study contains information about proper microbiological monitoring of laboratory animals' health and the standardization of microbiological monitoring methods in Korea. Microbiological quality control for laboratory animals, composed of biosecurity and health surveillance, is essential to guard against research complications and public health(More)
BACKGROUND A new medication is needed to treat essential tremor. Preliminary evidence suggests that arotinolol may be effective in the treatment of this disorder. OBJECTIVE To study the effect of arotinolol and propranolol in a crossover, multiple dose comparative trial of patients with essential tremor. PATIENTS AND METHODS One hundred and seventy-five(More)
A fundamental step in the analysis of environmental sequence information is the prediction of potential genes or open reading frames (ORFs) encoding the metabolic potential of individual cells and entire microbial communities. FragGeneScan, a software designed to predict intact and incomplete ORFs on short sequencing reads combines codon usage bias,(More)
Accurate description of the microbial communities driving matter and energy transformations in complex ecosystems such as soils cannot yet be effectively accomplished using assembly-based approaches despite the rise of next generation sequencing technologies. Here we present SOFA, an open source pipeline enabling comparative functional annotation of(More)
FAST is a multi-threaded, I/O optimized Seed-and-Extend alignment program. FAST is extensible to nucleotide sequences making it comparable to both BLASTn and BLASTp, and also features several new usage flags reporting only HSPs meeting user defined e-value cut-offs. FASTs threaded database construction allows fast, low memory database construction e.g.,(More)
BACKGROUND Baldness has significant negative psychosocial effects. It has been asserted that the negative effects of baldness are often trivialized by the nonbald. Most studies concerning the perception of baldness have focused on the perceptions of the bald by themselves. In this study, we assessed the perception of baldness by the nonbald in Korea. (More)
Advances in high-throughput sequencing are reshaping how we perceive microbial communities inhabiting the human body, with implications for therapeutic interventions. Several large-scale datasets derived from hundreds of human microbiome samples sourced from multiple studies are now publicly available. However, idiosyncratic data processing methods between(More)
