In this paper we present the prototype based text matching methodology used in the Routing Sub-Task of TREC 2001 Filtering Track. The methodology examines texts on word and sentence levels. On the word level the methodology is based on word coding and transforming the codes into histograms by the means of Weibull distribution. On the sentence level the word(More)
BACKGROUND Previous work in type I pollen allergies has focused on aberrant immunoresponses. OBJECTIVE Our systems-level analyses explore the role of epithelium in early pathogenesis of type I allergic reactions. METHODS We began top-down analyses of differences in human nasal epithelial cells and biopsy specimens obtained from patients with birch(More)
We present two variations of a prototype based text matching methodology used in the Routing Sub-Task of TREC 2002 Filtering Track. The methodology examines text on the word level. It is based on word coding and examines the distributions of these codes using document histograms. This research is supported by TEKES, the National Technology Agency of Finland(More)
Sulfate-rich mine water must be treated before it is released into natural water bodies. We tested ethanol as substrate in bioreactors designed for biological sulfate removal from mine water containing up to 9 g L-1 sulfate, using granular sludge from an industrial waste water treatment plant as inoculum. The pH, redox potential, and sulfate and sulfide(More)
