Next generation sequencing (NGS) technologies provide a high-throughput means to generate large amount of sequence data. However, quality control (QC) of sequence data generated from these technologies is extremely important for meaningful downstream analysis. Further, highly efficient and fast processing tools are required to handle the large volume of(More)
Chickpea ranks third among the food legume crops production in the world. However, the genomic resources available for chickpea are still very limited. In the present study, the transcriptome of chickpea was sequenced with short reads on Illumina Genome Analyzer platform. We have assessed the effect of sequence quality, various assembly parameters and(More)
Chickpea is an important grain legume used as a rich source of protein in human diet. The narrow genetic diversity and limited availability of genomic resources are the major constraints in implementing breeding strategies and biotechnological interventions for genetic enhancement of chickpea. We developed an integrated Chickpea Transcriptome Database(More)
Developing ontologies to account for the complexity of biological systems requires the time intensive collaboration of many participants with expertise in various fields. While each participant may contribute to construct a list of terms for ontology development, no objective methods have been developed to evaluate how relevant each of these terms is to the(More)
With technology scaling, on-chip power dissipation and off-chip memory bandwidth have become significant performance bottlenecks in virtually all computer systems, from mobile devices to supercomputers. An effective way of improving performance in the face of bandwidth and power limitations is to rely on associative memory systems. Recent work on a(More)
Novel spin torque transfer magnetic tunnel junction (STT-MTJ) based memory cell topologies are introduced to improve both the sense margin and the current ratio observed by the sense circuitry. These circuits utilize an additional transistor per cell in either a diode connected or gate connected manner and maintain leakage current immunity within the data(More)
—A field driven approach to STT-MRAM switching is proposed as a method for reducing the switching latency of an MTJ in high performance caches. An MRAM array model is presented to characterize the switching energy and maximum achievable reduction in energy using the field driven approach. The switching latency per bit is reduced by more than a factor of(More)
