We investigate off-line dictionary oriented approaches to DNA sequence compression, based on the Burrows-Wheeler Transform (BWT). The preponderance of short repeating patterns is an important phenomenon in biological sequences. Here, we propose off-line methods to compress DNA sequences that exploit the different repetition structures inherent in such… (More)
This paper explores two techniques for on-line exact pattern matching in files that have been compressed using the Burrows-Wheeler transform. We investigate two approaches. The first is an application of the Boyer-Moore algorithm (Boyer & Moore 1977) to a transformed string. The second approach is based on the observation that the transform effectively… (More)
Causes of primary ovarian failure are reviewed, focusing specifically on cancer treatment-related modalities. Strategies and future directions for protection of the ovaries during cancer therapy, including ovarian transposition, and conformal radiation techniques are presented.
