XML filtering systems aim to provide fast, on-the-fly matching of XML-encoded data to large numbers of query specifications containing constraints on both structure and content. It is now well accepted that approaches using event-based parsing and Finite State Machines (FSMs) can provide the basis for highly scalable structure-oriented XML filtering(More)
We present a new collection of treebanks with homogeneous syntactic dependency annotation for six languages: German, English, Swedish, Spanish, French and Korean. To show the usefulness of such a resource, we present a case study of cross-lingual transfer parsing with more reliable evaluation than has been possible before. This 'universal' treebank is made(More)
It is widely accepted that addictive drug use is related to abnormal functional organization in the user's brain. The present study aimed to identify this type of abnormality within the brain networks implicated in addiction by resting-state functional connectivity measured with functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI). With fMRI data acquired during(More)
MOTIVATION The next-generation high-throughput sequencing technologies, especially from Illumina, have been widely used in re-sequencing and de novo assembly studies. However, there is no existing software that can simulate Illumina reads with real error and quality distributions and coverage bias yet, which is very useful in relevant software development(More)
State-of-the-art graph-based parsers use features over higher-order dependencies that rely on decoding algorithms that are slow and difficult to generalize. On the other hand, transition-based dependency parsers can easily utilize such features without increasing the linear complexity of the shift-reduce system beyond a constant. In this paper, we attempt(More)
Weintroduceanewmethodtodescribeshaperelationships over time in a photograph. We acquire both range and image information in a sequence of frames using a stationary stereo camera. From the pictures taken, we compute a composite image consisting of the pixels from the surfaces closest to the camera over all the time frames. Through oc-clusion cues, this(More)
An Aspergillus niger strain was isolated from the soil around ginseng fruit. In vitro enzyme assays showed that this strain had the ability to transform total ginsenosides (TGS) into several new products. In a further biochemical study, a β-glucosidase gene isolated from this strain, bgl1, was expressed in Saccharomyces cerevisiae. His-tagged BGL1 protein(More)
Interleukin-1 (IL-1) has been implicated as a critical mediator of neuroimmune communication. In the brain, the functional receptor for IL-1, type 1 IL-1 receptor (IL-1R1), is localized primarily to the endothelial cells. In this study, we created an endothelial-specific IL-1R1 knockdown model to test the role of endothelial IL-1R1 in mediating the effects(More)
