N-grams are applied in some applications searching in text documents, especially in cases when one must work with phrases, e.g. in plagiarism detection. N-gram is a sequence of n terms (or generally tokens) from a document. We get a set of n-grams by moving a floating window from the begin to the end of the document. During the extraction we must remove(More)
Selected flavonoids that are known as inducers and a suppressor of nodulation (nod) genes of the symbiotic bacterium Rhizobium leguminosarum bv. viciae were tested for their effect on symbiosis formation with garden pea as the host. A solid substrate was omitted from the hydroponic growing system in order to prevent losses of flavonoids due to adsorption(More)
A major challenge for the bioremediation of toxic metals is the co-occurrence of nitrate, as it can inhibit metal transformation. Geobacter metallireducens, Desulfovibrio desulfuricans, and Sulfurospirillum barnesii are three soil bacteria that can reduce chromate [Cr(VI)] and nitrate, and may be beneficial for developing bioremediation strategies. All(More)
Multidimensional data structures have become very popular in recent years. Their importance lies in efficient indexing of data, which have naturally multidimensional characteristics like navigation data, drawing specifications etc. The R-tree is a well-known structure based on the bounding of spatial near points by rectangles. Although efficient query(More)
Although DBMS (Database Management Systems) are often hidden for a user, they are a part of many applications utilized in day-by-day life. In general, we can suppose two main types of DBMS: OLTP (On-Line Transaction Processing) and OLAP (On-Line Analytical Processing). We can also distinguish another classification related to the connection of a client and(More)
Variable (V), diversity (D), and joining (J) (V(D)J) recombination is the first determinant of antigen receptor diversity. Understanding how recombination is regulated requires a comprehensive, unbiased readout of V gene usage. We have developed VDJ sequencing (VDJ-seq), a DNA-based next-generation-sequencing technique that quantitatively profiles(More)
Semantic-based approaches are relatively new technologies. Some of these technologies are supported by specifications of W3 Consortium , i.e. RDF, SPARQL and so on. There are many areas where semantic data can be utilized, e.g. social networks, annotation of protein sequences etc. From the physical database design point of view, several index data(More)
Multidimensional data are commonly utilized in many application areas like electronic shopping, cartography and many others. These data structures support various types of queries, e.g. point or range query. The range query retrieves all tuples of a multidimensional space matched by a query rectangle. Processing range queries in a multidimensional data(More)
