The algorithm of Smith & Waterman for identification of maximally similar subsequences is extended to allow identification of all non-intersecting similar subsequences with similarity score at or above some preset level. The resulting alignments are found in order of score, with the highest scoring alignment first. In the case of single gaps or multiple(More)
The basic nature of the sequence features that define a promoter sequence for Escherichia coli RNA polymerase have been established by a variety of biochemical and genetic methods. We have developed rigorous analytical methods for finding unknown patterns that occur imperfectly in a set of several sequences, and have used them to examine a set of bacterial(More)
Recently, several approaches have been developed to check process models for compliance with laws and regulations. In this paper a contribution is made with respect to reducing the complexity of compliance checking by partially automating business process compliance (BPC) checking. We present a model checking approach that is able to check process models(More)
Large communities built around social media on the Internet offer an opportunity to augment analytical customer relationship management (CRM) strategies. The purpose of this paper is to provide direction to advance the conceptual design of business intelligence (BI) systems for implementing CRM strategies. After introducing social CRM and social BI as(More)
Bayon et al. (Reports, 9 March 2012, p. 1219) interpreted unusually high aluminum-potassium ratio values in an Atlantic sediment core as indicating anthropogenic deforestation around 2500 years before the present (B.P.). We argue that there is no terrestrial evidence for forest destruction by humans and that the third millennium B.P. rainforest crisis can(More)
Information Systems (IS) and law have a mutual influence on each other. On the one hand, IS artifacts (e.g., e-government IS) exist or need to be implemented that are highly regulated and sometimes come along with a need for changing the law. On the other hand, law strongly affects (and usually restricts) IS potentialities. Based on a systematic literature(More)
