The Pacific oyster Crassostrea gigas belongs to one of the most species-rich but genomically poorly explored phyla, the Mollusca. Here we report the sequencing and assembly of the oyster genome using short reads and a fosmid-pooling strategy, along with transcriptomes of development and stress response and the proteome of the shell. The oyster genome is(More)
Ensuring the <i>quality of service</i> (QoS) for latency-sensitive applications while allowing co-locations of multiple applications on servers is critical for improving server utilization and reducing cost in modern warehouse-scale computers (WSCs). Recent work relies on static profiling to precisely predict the QoS degradation that results from(More)
The human genome is diploid, and knowledge of the variants on each chromosome is important for the interpretation of genomic information. Here we report the assembly of a haplotype-resolved diploid genome without using a reference genome. Our pipeline relies on fosmid pooling together with whole-genome shotgun strategies, based solely on next-generation(More)
Large-scale data-intensive cloud computing with the MapReduce framework is becoming pervasive for the core business of many academic, government, and industrial organizations. Hadoop, a state-of-the-art open source project, is by far the most successful realization of MapReduce framework. While MapReduce is easy- to-use, efficient and reliable for(More)
— ALLIANCES (ALLow Improved Access in the Network via Cooperation and Energy Savings) is a recently proposed cooperative random access protocol for wireless networks that capitalizes on the broadcast nature of the wireless channel. When a collision occurs, a set of nodes form an alliance and retransmit the collision signal that they heard. The initial(More)
Modern warehouse-scale computers (WSCs) are being outfitted with accelerators to provide the significant compute required by emerging intelligent personal assistant (IPA) workloads such as voice recognition, image classification, and natural language processing. It is well known that the diurnal user access pattern of user-facing services provides a strong(More)
