We describe the challenges faced when developing a Linux/PC-based cluster to apply bioinformatics algorithms to the rapidly increasing raw genomics data available. The calculations, which take around two months to complete, result in a powerful resource that can be used for data mining--most obviously for the human genome. Our current infrastructure(More)
Mobile phone users rely on their device displays to provide both information (e.g., currently-playing song) and alerts (e.g., caller ID). Unfortunately, phone inaccessibility coupled with display or user constraints often make it difficult for users to view and respond to alerts in a timely manner. Our lightweight remote display (LRD) concept addresses this(More)
The increasing quality of computation and connectivity on mobile devices has motivated a need for data-sharing between resident services. Most such services rely on the user to transfer data manually between them. This approach is not only prone to input error but also creates a significant data-entry burden for the user on a mobile device. With AppBus, we(More)
Richer communication, computational and contenthandling capabilities on mobile devices are driving the adoption of more interactive and collaborative applications. These motivate a need for data-sharing paradigms that are flexible, efficient and lightweight – but also accessible across the different applications that may be involved in an ongoing user task.(More)
Even as mobile devices as well as wireless networks become increasingly capable, newer content-intensive application place increasing demands on the resources of these devices. Some of these applications make conflicting resource demands making it difficult for device platforms to guarantee acceptable user experience. Thus, a resource aware middleware is(More)
