Simple sequence repeat (SSR) markers are widely used in many plant and animal genomes due to their abundance, hypervariability, and suitability for high-throughput analysis. Development of SSR markers using molecular methods is time consuming, laborious, and expensive. Use of computational approaches to mine ever-increasing sequences such as expressed(More)
The NARMA model is an exact representation of the input-output behavior of finite-dimensional nonlinear discrete-time dynamical systems in a neighborhood of the equilibrium state. However, it is not convenient for purposes of adaptive control using neural networks due to its nonlinear dependence on the control input. Hence, quite often, approximate methods(More)
This paper considers the problem of using approximate methods for realizing the neural controllers for nonlinear multivariable systems. In [1] the NARMA-L1 and NARMA-L2 models were introduced as approximations of he NARMA model used for the representation of a SISO nonlinear dynamical systems. The advantage obtained from using NARMA-L1 and NARMA-L2 models(More)
Research in bioinformatics in the past decade has generated a large volume of textual biological data stored in databases such as MEDLINE. It takes a copious amount of effort and time, even for expert users, to manually extract useful information embedded in such a large volume of retrieved data and automated intelligent text analysis tools are increasingly(More)
In information-filtering environments, uncertainties associated with changing interests of the user and the dynamic document stream must be handled efficiently. In this article, a filtering model is proposed that decomposes the overall task into subsystem functionalities and highlights the need for multiple adaptation techniques to cope with uncertainties.(More)
iii ACKNOWLEDGMENTS I want to thank my parents and my sister Bhagyashri whose continual love and encouragement have been an essential ingredient in the development of this thesis. Their continuous questions regarding the status of my thesis and my graduate studies have always kept me focused and on track. I would also like to thank my husband, Chaitanya for(More)
Science Several machine learning approaches have been proposed in the literature to automatically learn user interests for information filtering. However, many of them are ill-equipped to deal with changes in user interests that may occur due to changes in the user's personal and proikssionai situations. If undetected over a long time, such changes may(More)
Osteoporosis, which is characterized by reduced bone mass and debilitating fractures, may reach epidemic proportions with the aging of the US population. The intensity of research in this field of study is reflected by the facts that The American Society of Bone and Mineral Research has a membership of nearly 4,000 physicians, clinical investigators, and(More)
