We are investigating techniques for developing distributed and adaptive collections of agents that coordinate to retrieve, lter and fuse information relevant to the user, task and situation, as well as anticipate a user's information needs. In our system of agents, information gathering is seamlessly integrated with decision support. The task for which(More)
To facilitate the rapid development and open system interoper-ability of autonomous agents we need to carefully specify and effectively implement various classes of agent behaviors. Our current focus is on the behaviors and underlying architecture of WWW-based autonomous software agents that collect and supply information to humans and other computational(More)
Acommon focus among molecular and cellular biologists is the identification of proteins that interact with each other. Yeast two-hybrid, cDNA expression library screening, and coimmunoprecipitation experiments are powerful methods for identifying novel proteins that bind to one's favorite protein for the purpose of learning more regarding its cellular(More)
BACKGROUND Carbohydrate-binding domains are usually small and physically separate from the catalytic domains of hydrolytic enzymes. Glucoamylase 1 (G1) from Aspergillus niger, an enzyme used widely in the food and brewing industries, contains a granular starch binding domain (SBD) which is separated from the catalytic domain by a semi-rigid linker. The aim(More)
We take temporal reasoning to be the problem of maintaining a set of constraints between time points and/or intervals, and responding to queries about the temporal separation between those individuals. Formal investigations of this constraint-satisfaction problem have demonstrated tradeoffs between the expressive power of the constraint language and the(More)
