We analyzed admixture in samples of six different African-American populations from South Carolina: Gullah-speaking Sea Islanders in coastal South Carolina, residents of four counties in the "Low Country" (Berkeley, Charleston, Colleton, and Dorchester), and persons living in the city of Columbia, located in central South Carolina. We used a battery of… (More)
Metastatic Crohn's disease is a term used to describe a granulomatous reaction occurring in flexures, and separated from the affected areas of the gastro-intestinal tract by normal skin. Previous reports refer to such lesions affecting the groins, the male genitalia, a flexure on the anterior abdominal wall of an obese patient, and submammary regions. A… (More)
Two-dimensional gel electrophoresis, a routine application in proteomics, separates proteins according to their molecular mass (M(r)) and isoelectric point (pI). As the genomic sequences for more and more organisms are determined, the M(r) and pI of all their proteins can be estimated computationally. The examination of several of these theoretical proteome… (More)
The dominant paradigm in computer Go is Monte-Carlo Tree Search (MCTS). This technique chooses a move by playing a series of simulated games, building a search tree along the way. After many simulated games, the most promising move is played. This paper proposes replacing the search tree with a neural network. Where previous neural network Go research has… (More)
Myxoid tumors are a heterogeneous group of lesions characterized by a marked abundance of extra cellular mucoid (myxoid) matrix. The term aggressive emphasizes the often infiltrative nature of the tumor and its frequent association with recurrence. A case of aggressive angiomyxoma arising from the vagina in a 55-year-old woman is reported for its… (More)
Lichen sclerosus (LS) is a chronic inflammatory disorder of an unknown aetiology most commonly affecting the anogenital area. However, extragenital involvement also occurs uncommonly. A case of extra-genital LS involving the areolae of both breasts, in a 15-year-old boy, is reported for its rarity.
