The Saccharomyces cerevisiae DNA-binding protein RAP1 is capable of binding in vitro to sequences from a wide variety of genomic loci, including upstream activating sequence elements, the HML and HMR silencer regions, and the poly(G1-3T) tracts of telomeres. Recent biochemical and genetic studies have suggested that RAP1 physically and functionally(More)
We present our ongoing work in addressing the issue of overlapped speech in speaker diarization through the use of overlap segmentation, overlapped speech exclusion, and overlap segment labeling. Using feature analysis, we identify the most salient features from a candidate list including those from our previous system and a set of newly proposed features.(More)
We describe the development of our speech recognition system for the NIST Spring 2005 Meeting Rich Transcription (RT-05S) evaluation, highlighting improvements made since last year [1]. The system is based on the SRI-ICSI-UW RT-04F conversational telephone speech (CTS) recognition system, with meeting-adapted models and various audio preprocessing steps.(More)
We describe the development of a speech activity detection system using an HMM-based segmenter for automatic speech recognition on individual headset microphones in multispeaker meetings. We look at cross-channel features (energy and correlation based) to incorporate into the segmenter for the purpose of addressing errors related to cross-channel phenomena(More)
We have created a large diverse set of cars from overhead images 1 , which are useful for training a deep learner to binary classify, detect and count them. The dataset and all related material will be made publically available. The set contains contextual matter to aid in identification of difficult targets. We demonstrate classification and detection on(More)
State-of-the-art speaker diarization systems for meetings are now at a point where overlapped speech contributes significantly to the errors made by the system. However, little if no work has yet been done on detecting overlapped speech. We present our initial work toward developing an overlap detection system for improved meeting diarization. We(More)
The product of the Saccharomyces cerevisiae AER2 gene is responsible for maintaining repression of at least two distinct regulatory pathways: heme activation/repression and catabolite repression. Mutations in the gene caused an eightfold increase in the expression of the heme-activated CYC1 gene in the absence of heme, a substantial increase in the(More)
The goal of this study was to investigate the associations between ovarian cancer risk and usual consumption of black tea, regular coffee, or decaffeinated coffee. Using a hospital-based case-control design, participants included 414 women with primary epithelial ovarian, fallopian, or peritoneal cancer and 868 age- and region-matched women with(More)
