Since the explosive influx of biological data obtained from high-throughput medical instruments, the ability to leverage the currently available data to extract useful knowledge has become one of the most challenging problems in biomedical research. The analysis of such data is particularly complex not only due to its massive size but also due to its(More)
Three subprimals from beef carcasses, Average (mean=340.6kg) and Heavy weight (mean=461.6kg), were cut using Innovative versus Conventional cutting styles. Longer (P<0.05) processing times were required for the Heavy compared to Average and Innovative compared to Conventional. Total saleable yields were lower for the Innovative compared to Conventional for(More)
This study was designed to provide updated information on the separable components, cooking yields, and proximate composition of retail cuts from the beef chuck. Additionally, the impact the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Quality and Yield Grade may have on such factors was investigated. Ultimately, these data will be used in the USDA -(More)
The influx of high-throughput biotechnologies has resulted in considerable amounts of available and untapped data, useful for both interpretation and extrapolation. Due to the fact that the noise to signal ratio in most biological databases are non-trivial, single source analysis techniques may suffer from relatively high false-positive and false-negative(More)
Physician practices worked feverishly in 2013 to thoroughly comprehend the HIPAA Omnibus, then to educate all staff that work with private health information, and finally to implement the procedures required for compliance with the new final rule. But practices must avoid complacency in the wake of last year's successful compliance efforts. They must(More)

Over 50% of physician offices and group practices are replacing their electronic health record (EHR) systems. Dissatisfaction with first-generation systems, physician practice mergers, and hospital acquisitions are all driving the move from legacy EHRs to newer, more sophisticated software. With this painful decision comes the same challenge experienced(More)
