BACKGROUND Pyropia haitanensis and P. yezoensis are two economically important marine crops that are also considered to be research models to study the physiological ecology of intertidal seaweed communities, evolutionary biology of plastids, and the origins of sexual reproduction. This plastid genome information will facilitate study of breeding,(More)
An EDF-based task-splitting scheme for scheduling multiprocessor systems is presented in this paper. For m processors at most m−1 tasks are split. The first part of a split task is constrained to have a deadline equal to its computation time. The second part of the task then has the maximum time available to complete its execution on a different processor.(More)
Spoken user interfaces are conventionally either dialogue based or menu-based. In this paper we propose a third approach, in which the task of invoking responses from the system is treated as one of retrieval from the set of all possible responses. Unlike conventional spoken user interfaces that return a unique response to the user, the proposed interface(More)
The PathoSystems Resource Integration Center (PATRIC) is one of eight Bioinformatics Resource Centers (BRCs) funded by the National Institute of Allergy and Infection Diseases (NIAID) to create a data and analysis resource for selected NIAID priority pathogens, specifically proteobacteria of the genera Brucella, Rickettsia and Coxiella, and corona-, calici-(More)
