The clinical course and eventual outcome, or prognosis, of complex diseases varies enormously between affected individuals. This variability critically determines the impact a disease has on a patient's life but is very poorly understood. Here, we exploit existing genome-wide association study data to gain insight into the role of genetics in prognosis. We(More)
— Abstract— The feasibility of low-cost, Commercial Off-The-Shelf (COTS) sensor nodes is studied in a distributed network, aiming at dynamic surveillance and tracking of ground targets. Data acquisition by the low-cost (< $50 US) miniature radar is described. We demonstrate the detection, ranging and velocity estimation capabilities of the mini-radar, and(More)
an interesting conversation with Richard Cox, who also provided helpful comments. I am grateful to both, to Mishuk Chowdhury and Mohammed Khan for helpful assistance, and to Donald Freeman for thoughtful comments. Through a series of fortunate events, Helen Tashima graciously provided the missing link–elusive information on key variables. A general debt to(More)
The data contained in this document may not be modified in any way. Cost estimates described or summarized in this document were generated as part of a preliminary concept study, are model-based, assume a JPL in-house build, and do not constitute a commitment on the part of JPL or Caltech. References to work months, work years, or FTEs generally combine(More)
Desktop grid is an exciting discipline for high throughput applications but due to inherent resource volatility, desktop grids are not feasible for short lived applications that require rapid turnaround time. Efficient and more knowledgeable resource selection mechanism can make it possible. In this paper, we propose a group based resource scheduling(More)
Introduction. Granulocytic sarcoma (GS), also known as chloroma or extramedullary myeloblastoma, is a solid tumor composed of primitive precursors of the granulocytic series that include myeloblasts, promyelocytes, and myelocytes. Granulocytic sarcoma is a rare tumor that may develop during acute myeloid leukemia (AML) but less frequently may precede its(More)
Neem biodiesel is currently being explored as a future biofuel and was extracted chemically from the vegetable oil. Many of its properties are still under investigation and our aim was to study its noxious-gas emission profiles from blends with regular petroleum diesel. The distinct advantage of a real-time study is acquisition of in situ data on the(More)
This paper examines how grade incentives affect student learning across a variety of ourses at two universities, using for identification the discrete rewards offered by the standard A-F letter grade system. We develop five predictions about effort provision in the presence of the thresholds that separate these discrete rewards, only one of which has been(More)
This study analyzes nearly twenty-five years of U.S. survey data to determine the macroeconomic conditions associated with economies the public considers " good. " These surveys are correlated with, but distinct from, other frequently-studied, expectations-oriented indices of consumer sentiment. The primary findings are as follows: 1) inflation and(More)
