The Protein Data Bank (PDB) at Brookhaven National Laboratory, is a database containing experimentally determined three-dimensional structures of proteins, nucleic acids and other biological macromolecules, with approximately 8000 entries. Data are easily submitted via PDB's WWW-based tool AutoDep, in either mmCIF or PDB format, and are most conveniently… (More)
Molecular biology data are distributed among multiple databases. Although containing related data, these databases are often isolated and are characterized by various degrees of heterogeneity: they usually represent different views (schemas) of the scientific domain and are implemented using different data management systems. Currently, several systems… (More)
Determining the MR compatibility of medical implants and devices is becoming increasingly relevant. In most cases, the heating of conductive implants due to radiefrequency (RF) excitation pulses is measured by fluoroptic temperature sensors in relevant tests for approval. Another common method to determine these heating effects is MR thermometry using the… (More)
The parallel pipe PAR_PIPE is a communication mechanism. Data which are written to the PAR_PIPE by a single process can be read by multiple processes concurrently in first-in-first-out manner, where all reading processes read the entire data stream. We use a dynamic partitioned buffer limited in size only by available hardware resources to ensure that the… (More)
(4) TU Bergakademie Freiberg, Institute of Numerical Analysis and Optimization field and electromagnetic diffusion methods covering a wide range of scales from boreholes to regional or lithosphere dimensions. To reach these goals, we pursue an inter-disciplinary concept, integrating research groups from applied and numerical geophysics, information… (More)
Genome mapping and sequencing projects push the frontiers of molecular biology and genetics toward information science. I will try to demonstrate that the information management characteristics of genome research may apply to other large-scale systematic studies of complex systems such as the brain.
