To tackle the exponentially increasing throughput of Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS), most of the existing short-read aligners can be configured to favor speed in trade of accuracy and sensitivity. SOAP3-dp, through leveraging the computational power of both CPU and GPU with optimized algorithms, delivers high speed and sensitivity simultaneously. Compared… (More)
We investigate the cogrowth and distribution of geodesics in R. Thompson's group F .
Health Issue: The incidence of bacterial sexually transmitted infections (STIs) is rising in Canada. If these curable infections were prevented and treated, serious long-term sequelae including infertility, and associated treatment costs, could be dramatically reduced. STIs pose a greater risk to women than men in many ways, and further gender differences… (More)
We compute the cogrowth series for Baumslag-Solitar groups BS(N, N) = a, b|a N b = ba N , which we show to be D-finite. It follows that their cogrowth rates are algebraic numbers.
Late recognition of severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) was associated with no known SARS contact, hospitalization before the nosocomial outbreak was recognized, symptom onset while hospitalized, wards with SARS clusters, and postoperative status. SARS is difficult to recognize in hospitalized patients with a variety of underlying conditions in the… (More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this guideline is to provide recommendations to obstetric health care providers and to minimize practice variations for HIV screening, while taking provincial and territorial recommendations into account. OUTCOMES The risk of transmission of HIV from mother to fetus is significant if the mother is not treated. The primary outcome… (More)
