Investigation of sequence variation in common inbred mouse strains has revealed a segmented pattern in which regions of high and low variant density are intermixed. Furthermore, it has been suggested that allelic strain distribution patterns also occur in well defined blocks and consequently could be used to map quantitative trait loci (QTL) in comparisons(More)
An electronic digital inclinometer was used to obtain normative data on cervical mobility from 58 normal subjects. They consisted of 28 males (age range, 17-61) and 30 females (age range, 19-62). The measurements were taken from occiput to T1 in flexion-extension, lateral bend, and axial rotation, isolating the regional motion by measuring simultaneously(More)
The current study evaluated human skeletal muscle performance through isokinetic trunk strength testing before and after a comprehensive functional restoration program for a group of 191 chronic low back pain (CLBP) patients. Four groups of patients were identified: 1) postdiscectomy men (n = 26); 2) unoperated men (n = 90); 3) postdiscectomy women (n =(More)
Fourier Transform Infrared (FT-IR) spectroscopic imaging is a potentially valuable tool for diagnosing breast and prostate cancer, but its clinical deployment is limited due to long data acquisition times and vast storage requirements. To counter this limitation, we develop a sparse representation for FT-IR absorbance spectra using a learned dictionary.(More)
