MOTIVATION To allow a direct comparison of the genomic DNA sequences of sufficiently similar organisms, there is an urgent need for software tools that can align more than two genomic sequences. RESULTS We developed new algorithms and a software tool 'Multiple Genome Aligner' (MGA for short) that efficiently computes multiple genome alignments of large,… (More)

We have developed an alignment-free method that calculates phylogenetic distances using a maximum-likelihood approach for a model of sequence change on patterns that are discovered in unaligned sequences. To evaluate the phylogenetic accuracy of our method, and to conduct a comprehensive comparison of existing alignment-free methods (freely available as… (More)
The Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standard (DSS) provides a list of over 200 controls that must be inspected yearly by organizations handling credit card data. As several organizations have learned, contracting a QSA to perform a PCI DSS yearly validation is simply not enough to ensure success. A comprehensive, repeatable approach is required to… (More)
Executives are increasingly interested in the state of information security for their organization. The media and press are frequently reporting new methods of technology attack and how another organization has become a victim. Regulators and auditors including PCI, GLBA, SOX, HIPAA, etc. are demanding more executive time and attention. Routinely… (More)
About This Document This manual is not a technical description. As such it does not include formal definitions but instead refers to other documents containing them. It tries to avoid the excessive use of technical termini except in places where the author considers them necessary.
As a part of the project " Computer Aided Software Marketing " , a cooperation between DATEV eG and the Bavarian Research Center for Knowledge-based Systems (FORWISS), Erlangen, we developed a Product Advising System (PAS) that is based on the World Wide Web. The tool is designed to help customers finding software solutions for their specific problem and in… (More)
