To design a cost effective VOD server, it is important to carefully manage the system resources so that the number of concurrent viewers can be maximized. Previous research results use data sharing techniques, such as batching [5], buffering [12], and piggybacking [7], to reduce the demand for I/O resources in a VOD system. However, these techniques still(More)
Gene expression arrays show that human epithelial cells and human arthritis-affected cartilage lack detectable amounts of mRNA for IL-1 antagonizing molecules: IL-1Ra and IL-1RII, but constitutively express IL-1. Functional genomic analysis was performed by reconstituting human IL-1RII expression in various IL-1RII-deficient cell types to examine its(More)
Efficient (linear time) algorithms are described for identifying global molecular sequence features allowing for errors including repeats, matches between sequences, dyad symmetry pairings, and other sequence patterns. A multiple sequence alignment algorithm is also described. Specific applications are given to hepatitis B viruses and the J5-C (J, joining;(More)
An efficient algorithm is described for finding matches, repeats and other word relations, allowing for errors, in large data sets of long molecular sequences. The algorithm entails hashing on fixed-size words in conjunction with the use of a linked list connecting all occurrences of the same word. The average memory and run time requirement both increase(More)
ÐIn designing cost-effective video-on-demand (VOD) servers, efficient resource management and proper system sizing are of great importance. In addition to large storage and I/O bandwidth requirements, support of interactive VCR functionality imposes additional resource requirements on the VOD system in terms of storage space, as well as disk and network(More)
