Pheochromocytomas (PCCs) are rare neuroendocrine tumors that arise from the medulla of the adrenal gland or the sympathetic ganglia and are characterized by the secretion of catecholamines. In 30-40% of patients, PCCs are genetically determined by susceptibility genes as various as RET, VHL, and NF1. We have analyzed the Ras-association domain family(More)
—This paper proposes a framework for the integration of handwriting recognition into natural user interfaces. As more and more pen-enabled touch displays are available, we make use of the distinction between touch actions and pen actions. Furthermore , we apply a recently introduced mode detection approach to distinguish between handwritten strokes and(More)
In this paper, we propose a pen-based annotation tool for videos. Annotating videos is an exhausting task, but it has a great benefit for several communities, as labeled ground truth data is the foundation for supervised machine learning approaches. Thus, there is need for an easy-to-use tool which assists users with labeling even complex structures. For(More)
MOTIVATION The vast amount of already available and currently generated read mapping data requires comprehensive visualization, and should benefit from bioinformatics tools offering a wide spectrum of analysis functionality from just one source. Appropriate handling of multiple mapped reads during mapping analyses remains an issue that demands improvement.(More)
Attendance at classical lectures usually leads to rather poor learning success. A wide variety of studies show that while lectures are as effective as any other method for transmitting information, they are inferior in many other dimensions. Lectures are not as effective as discussion methods in promoting thought and they are ineffective at teaching(More)
