Intra-subject and inter-subject nonlinear registration based on dense transformations requires the setting of many parameters, mainly for regularization. This task is a major issue, as the global quality of the registration will depend on it. Setting these parameters is, however, very hard, and they may have to be tuned for each patient when processing data(More)
High throughput sequencing (HTS) provides new research opportunities for work on non-model organisms, such as differential expression studies between populations exposed to different environmental conditions. However, such transcriptomic studies first require the production of a reference assembly. The choice of sampling procedure, sequencing strategy and(More)
INTRODUCTION Gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GIST) are uncommon, potentially malignant tumors, that arise in the wall of the gastrointestinal tract. Up to 50% can develop metastasis, mainly in the liver, but the occurrence of synchronous primary liver tumors is a rare event in these patients. PRESENTATION OF CASE The authors report a case of the(More)

Manufacturing leanness and agility are requirements of today's manufacturing systems. Leanness call for a best fit of the manufacturing systems to products, therefore requiring product oriented manufacturing systems (POMS). Manufacturing agility can be achieved through easy systems reconfiguration to fit changing manufacturing requirements, which may mean(More)
