The video track is added into TREC-10, composed of two tasks, automatic shot boundary detection and video retrieval. In this year, we (MSR-Asia) participated in the video track, focusing on shot boundary detection task. Our work is to find out all of boundaries the shot changes by a fast algorithm based on uncompressed domain. In our algorithm, all of(More)
We explore the design space of using direct finger input in conjunction with a deformable physical prop for the creation and manipulation of conceptual 3D geometric models. The user sculpts virtual models by manipulating the space on, into, and around the physical prop, in an extension of the types of manipulations one would perform on traditional modeling(More)
Representing a basal branch of arachnids, scorpions are known as 'living fossils' that maintain an ancient anatomy and are adapted to have survived extreme climate changes. Here we report the genome sequence of Mesobuthus martensii, containing 32,016 protein-coding genes, the most among sequenced arthropods. Although M. martensii appears to evolve(More)
Plants have large diverse families of small secreted proteins (SSPs) that play critical roles in the processes of development, differentiation, defense, flowering, stress response, symbiosis, etc. Oryza sativa is one of the major crops worldwide and an excellent model for monocotyledonous plants. However, there had not been any effort to systematically(More)
MPSQ (multi-protein-states query) is a web-based tool for the discovery of protein states (e.g. biological interactions, covalent modifications, cellular localizations). In particular, large sets of genes can be used to search for enriched state transition network maps (NMs) and features facilitating the interpretation of genomic-scale experiments such as(More)
We previously reported that, based on clone-based sequencing (CBS), hepatitis B virus (HBV) heterogeneity within the reverse transcriptase (RT) region was a predictor of antiviral efficacy. Here, by comparing ultradeep pyrosequencing (UDPS), i.e., next-generation sequencing (NGS), with CBS in characterizing the genetic heterogeneity of HBV quasispecies(More)
In the field of drug discovery, it is particularly important to discover bioactive compounds through high-throughput virtual screening. The maximum common substructure-based (MCS) algorithm is a promising method for the virtual screening of drug candidates. However, in practical applications, there is always a trade-off between efficiency and accuracy. In(More)
—In this paper we investigate stopping criteria for iterative decoding from a mutual information perspective. We introduce new iteration stopping rules based on an approximation of the mutual information between encoded bits and decoder soft output. The first type stopping rule sets a threshold value directly on the approximated mutual information for(More)
