This paper proposes using fuzzy logic techniques to dynamically control parameter settings of genetic algorithms (GAs). We describe the Dynamic Parametric GA: a GA that uses a fuzzy knowledge-based system to control GA parameters. We then introduce a technique for automatically designing and tuning the fuzzy knowledge-base system using GAs. Results from(More)
BACKGROUND Single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) are an abundant form of genetic variation in the genome of every species and are useful for gene mapping and association studies. Of particular interest are non-synonymous SNPs, which may alter protein function and phenotype. We therefore examined bovine expressed sequences for non-synonymous SNPs and(More)
The present study was undertaken to clarify some of the conflicting findings of previous reports on the effect of state anxiety on cerebral blood flow (CBF). Seven subjects with simple phobia of small animals were studied to permit the generation of wide ranges of anxiety. Each subject received five positron emission tomography (PET) scans in a(More)
To the Editor: Predictable rhythmic fluctuations, especially cir-cadian, have been observed in a wide variety of phys-iologicai and psychological functions. Abno~a~ities of circadian patterns have been documented in people with depression, including a tendency for maximal severity of depression in the morning; however, patients with anxiety or mixed(More)
In this report we present our tools for prototyping adaptive user interfaces in the context of real—time musical instrument control. Characteristic of most human communication is the simultaneous use of classified events and estimated parameters. We have integrated a neural network object into the MAX language to explore adaptive user interfaces that(More)
Since the discovery of the causal association between human papillomavirus (HPV) and cervical cancer, efforts to develop an effective prophylactic vaccine to prevent high-risk HPV infections have been at the forefront of modern medical research. HPV causes 530,000 cervical cancer cases worldwide, which is the second most common cause of cancer deaths in(More)
