A design of systolic array-based Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) parallel architecture for Basic Local Alignment Search Tool (BLAST) Algorithm is proposed. BLAST is a heuristic biological sequence alignment algorithm which has been used by bioinformatics experts. In contrast to other designs that detect at most one hit in one-clock-cycle, our design(More)
The popularity of internet usage greatly motivates the online advertising activities. Compared to advertising on traditional media, online advertising has rich information as well as necessary techniques to achieve precise user targeting. This rich information includes the search behaviors of a user, such as queries issued, or the ads clicked by the user.(More)
[1] Using in situ data from 88 cruises from 1987 to 2009 in the East China Sea, downstream nutrient flux (the product of velocity and nutrient concentration) and nutrient transport (integration of flux over a section) by Kuroshio were examined. The presence of a maximum nutrient flux core in the middle layer was confirmed. Seasonal variation in the nutrient(More)
In this paper we present a new vision-based method to measure corn plant spacing and population at early growth stage. Images were acquired from a top-mounted camera under dayLight condition. Algorithms were developed to mosaic image sequence, vegetation segmentation, image thinning, stem center identification, row Line fitting, plant count and plant(More)
The temporal registration of retinal images provides an important groundwork for doctors to monitor the progression of diseases. Retinal image registration is challenging because the intensity of the retina and the vascular structure can vary greatly over time. In this paper, we describe a tree matching approach to register retinal images. We model each(More)
Support vector machines (SV machines, SVMs) have many merits that distinguish themselves from many other machine-learning algorithms, such as the nonexistence of local minima, the possession of the largest distance from the separating hyperplane to the SVs, and a solid theoretical foundation. However, SVM training algorithms such as the efficient sequential(More)
Current interests in skyline computation arise due to their relation to preference queries. Since it is guaraneed that a skyline point will not lose out in all dimensions when compared to any other point in the data set, this means that for each skyline point, there exists a set of weight assignments to the dimensions such that the point will become the top(More)
PROBLEM In our previous study, ovarian stimulation retarded post-implantation development and caused 92 genes, including interleukin-6 (IL-6), to be differentially expressed in mouse blastocysts. None of them had been tested at protein level, In this study, we confirm the level change of IL-6 mRNA in mouse blastocysts and IL-6 protein release to the culture(More)
