Bardet-Biedl syndrome (BBS) is a rare autosomal recessive disorder characterized primarily by obesity, polydactyly, retinal dystrophy, and renal disease. The significant genetic and clinical heterogeneity of this condition have substantially hindered efforts to positionally clone the numerous BBS genes, because the majority of available pedigrees are small(More)
This paper presents and evaluates a parallel Java implementation of the Finite-Difference Time-Domain (FDTD) method, which is a widely used numerical technique in computational electrodynamics. The Java version is parallelized using MPJ Express - a thread-safe messaging library. MPJ Express provides a full implementation of the mpiJava 1.2 API(More)
In otherwise healthy individuals, disease caused by the fungus Histoplasma capsulatum manifests itself as a self-limiting pulmonary infection. Dissemination of the organisms may occur in a setting of compromised cellular immunity. Gastrointestinal involvement occurs in many such cases, but rarely it is clinically obvious and the disease seldom comes to the(More)
We investigate spatial filtering techniques for interference removal in multichannel radio astronomical observations. The techniques are based on the estimation of the spatial signature vector of the interferer from short-term spatial covariance matrices followed by a subspace projection to remove that dimension from the covariance matrix, and by further(More)
