SUMMARY High-throughput RNA sequencing (RNA-seq) is rapidly emerging as a major quantitative transcriptome profiling platform. Here, we present DEGseq, an R package to identify differentially expressed genes or isoforms for RNA-seq data from different samples. In this package, we integrated three existing methods, and introduced two novel methods based on(More)
Many flowering plants have adopted self-incompatibility mechanisms to prevent inbreeding and promote out-crosses. In the Solanaceae, Rosaceae and Scrophulariaceae, two separate genes at the highly polymorphic S-locus control self-incompatibility interactions: the S-RNase gene encodes the pistil determinant and the previously unidentified S-gene encodes the(More)
The bidirectional texture function (BTF) is a 6D function that can describe textures arising from both spatially-variant surface reflectance and surface mesostructures. In this paper, we present an algorithm for synthesizing the BTF on an arbitrary surface from a sample BTF. A main challenge in surface BTF synthesis is the requirement of a consistent(More)
Resin is a new language runtime that helps prevent security vulnerabilities, by allowing programmers to specify application-level data flow assertions. Resin provides policy objects, which programmers use to specify assertion code and metadata; data tracking, which allows programmers to associate assertions with application data, and to keep track of(More)
We present a structured lighting system for creating high-resolution stereo datasets of static indoor scenes with highly accurate ground-truth disparities. The system includes novel techniques for efficient 2D subpixel correspondence search and self-calibration of cameras and projectors with modeling of lens distortion. Combining disparity estimates from(More)
In epithelial tissues, the lineage relationship between normal progenitor cells and cell type(s) of origin for cancer has been poorly understood. Here we show that a known regulator of prostate epithelial differentiation, the homeobox gene Nkx3-1, marks a stem cell population that functions during prostate regeneration. Genetic lineage-marking demonstrates(More)
Testing large-scale distributed systems is a challenge, because some errors manifest themselves only after a distributed sequence of events that involves machine and network failures. D 3 S is a checker that allows developers to specify predicates on distributed properties of a deployed system, and that checks these predicates while the system is running.(More)
Library-based record and replay tools aim to reproduce an application's execution by recording the results of selected functions in a log and during replay returning the results from the log rather than executing the functions. These tools must ensure that a replay run is identical to the record run. The challenge in doing so is that only invocations of a(More)
Classifying videos according to content semantics is an important problem with a wide range of applications. In this paper, we propose a hybrid deep learning framework for video classification, which is able to model static spatial information, short-term motion, as well as long-term temporal clues in the videos. Specifically, the spatial and the short-term(More)
We propose a technique, called TextureMontage, to seamlessly map a patchwork of texture images onto an arbitrary 3D model. A texture atlas can be created through the specification of a set of correspondences between the model and any number of texture images. First, our technique automatically partitions the mesh and the images , driven solely by the choice(More)
