A tool that uses natural language processing techniques to extract causal relations from text and output useful Bayesian network fragments is described. Previous research indicates that a primarily syntactic approach to causal relation detection can yield good results. We used such an approach to identify subject-verb-object triples and then applied various(More)
An exponential increase in the speed of DNA sequencing over the past decade has driven demand for fast, space efficient algorithms to process the resultant data. The first step in processing is alignment of many short DNA sequences, or reads, against a large reference sequence. This work presents WOODSTOCC, an implementation of short-read alignment designed(More)
Many anatomical variations of the infratemporal area exist: muscle fusion, muscle belly separation, distinctly different origins, and both separate and aponeurotic insertions. This study is an attempt to find the frequency of occurrence of the zygomandibularis muscle, a recently described human structure. The zygomandibularis muscle may occur unilaterally,(More)
GPUs have a natural affinity for streaming applications exhibiting consistent, predictable dataflow. However, many high-impact irregular streaming applications, including sequence pattern matching, decision-tree and decision-cascade evaluation, and large-scale graph processing, exhibit unpredictable dataflow due to data-dependent filtering or expansion of(More)
An ovoid density was demonstrated by arthrography in the infrapatellar fat pad region of seven patients. In three patients, the density appeared demarcated from the fat pad, and arthrotomy in two of them disclosed a localized pigmented villonodular synovitis. In four patients the density appeared contiguous with the fat pad, and in two of these patients no(More)
