BACKGROUND Bacterial vaginosis (BV) is the most common vaginal disorder of reproductive-age women. Yet the cause of BV has not been established. To uncover key determinants of BV, we employed a multi-omic, systems-biology approach, including both deep 16S rRNA gene-based sequencing and metabolomics of lavage samples from 36 women. These women varied(More)
BACKGROUND Gardnerella vaginalis is described as a common vaginal bacterial species whose presence correlates strongly with bacterial vaginosis (BV). Here we report the genome sequencing and comparative analyses of three strains of G. vaginalis. Strains 317 (ATCC 14019) and 594 (ATCC 14018) were isolated from the vaginal tracts of women with symptomatic BV,(More)
Cross lingual querying of financial and business data from multilingual sources requires that inherent challenges posed by the diversity of financial concepts and languages used in different jurisdictions be addressed. Ontol-ogies can be used to semantically align financial concepts and integrate financial facts with other company information from(More)
Our research investigates the use of statistical machine translation (SMT) to translate the labels of concepts in an XBRL taxonomy. Often taxonomy concepts are given labels in only one language. To enable knowledge access across languages, such monolingual taxonomies need to be translated into other languages. The primary challenge in label translation is(More)
SAP initiated a survey project on agent technology in which the state of the art in the application of agents to industrial application domains is investigated. In this paper we describe our common effort and activities related to this project. The survey results consist of documents which describe relevant projects and products especially with respect to(More)
