An algorithm is described for mapping DNA contigs based on an interval graph (IG) representation. In general terms, the input to the algorithm is a set of binary overlapping relations among finite intervals spread along a real line, from which the algorithm generates sets of ordered overlapping fragments spanning that line. The implications of a moreâ€¦ (More)

Aerogel has become a material of interest to scientists in recent decades due to its unique physical properties that give it the potential to improve technologies in a variety of fields. In particular, aerogels offer the lowest densities and the lowest thermal conductivities of any known solid. Silica-based aerogels were first synthesized in 1931 by Stevenâ€¦ (More)
