Kineograph is a distributed system that takes a stream of incoming data to construct a continuously changing graph, which captures the relationships that exist in the data feed. As a computing platform, Kineograph further supports graph-mining algorithms to extract timely insights from the fast-changing graph structure. To accommodate graph-mining(More)
The lateral corticospinal tract is the major motor pathway in humans. The role of this tract on walking, however, is uncertain. The development of diffusion tensor tractography enables corticospinal tract status to be visualized at the subcortical level. In the present study, we undertook to demonstrate that some stroke patients can walk despite complete(More)
BACKGROUND Next generation sequencing platforms have greatly reduced sequencing costs, leading to the production of unprecedented amounts of sequence data. BWA is one of the most popular alignment tools due to its relatively high accuracy. However, mapping reads using BWA is still the most time consuming step in sequence analysis. Increasing mapping(More)
—Labeling schemes lie at the core of query processing for many tree-structured data such as XML data that is flooding the web. A labeling scheme that can simultaneously and efficiently support various relationship queries on trees (such as parent/children, descendant/ances-tor, etc.), computation of lowest common ancestors (LCA) and update of trees, is(More)
Surprisingly, we observed that nerve growth factor (NGF) potentiated death of PC12 cells induced by glucose withdrawal, although NGF is widely believed to exert its protective role against several types of cell death. Since either glucose withdrawal or NGF treatment increases intracellular calcium levels of target cells in many cases, we hypothesized that(More)
