High-resolution, two-dimensional measurements of aquatic-organism density are collected routinely during echo integration trawl surveys. School-detection algorithms are commonly used to describe and analyse spatial distributions of pelagic and semi-pelagic organisms observed in echograms. This approach is appropriate for species that form well-defined(More)
The distribution of nine cold-water corals in the cold temperate North Atlantic is described based on existing records. The species studied are Lophelia pertusa, Madrepora oculata, Paragorgia arborea, Primnoa resedaeformis, Paramuricea placomus, Acanella arbuscula, Isidella lofotensis, Radicipes gracilis and Acanthogorgia armata. The compiled number of(More)
A global sensitivity analysis was conducted on the algorithm implemented in the Echoview w software to detect and describe aggregations in acoustic backscatter. Multiple aggregation detections were performed using walleye pollock (Theragra chalcogramma) data from the eastern Bering Sea. Walleye pollock form distinct aggregations and dense and diffuse(More)
We describe the synthetic voices entered into the 2013 Blizzard Challenge by the SIMPLE4ALL consortium. The 2013 Blizzard Challenge presents an opportunity to test and benchmark some of the tools we have been developing to address two problems of interest: 1) how best to learn from plentiful ‘found’ data, and 2) how to produce systems in arbitrary new(More)

An overview of genome-wide association (GWA) studies and major initial findings from three genome-wide association resources (the Framingham SHARe Project, the Genetic Association Information Network, and the Wellcome Trust Case Control Consortium) will be presented to permit assessment of the added value of open data sharing and of conducting such programs(More)
The objectives of this research were: (1) to determine the occurrence of zoonotic enteroparasites in dog feces from Bahía Blanca, Argentina; (2) to characterize the spatial distribution of the parasites found in association with the quality of life index (QLI) in neighborhoods of Bahía Blanca; and (3) to determine if the presence of a particular parasite(More)
