Temperature-Change-Based Thermal Tomography
Thermal properties of biological tissues play a critical role in the study of tumor angiogenesis and the design and monitoring of thermal therapies. To map thermal parameters noninvasively, we propose temperature-change-based ...
CMGSDB: integrating heterogeneous Caenorhabditis elegans data sources using compositional data mining
(Oxford Univ Press, 2008-01-01)
CMGSDB (Database for Computational Modeling of Gene Silencing) is an integration of heterogeneous data sources about Caenorhabditis elegans with capabilities for compositional data mining (CDM) across diverse domains. ...
On Utilization of Contributory Storage in Desktop Grids
(Department of Computer Science, Virginia Polytechnic Institute & State University, 2007), TR-07-16
The availability of desktop grids and shared computing platforms has popularized the use of contributory resources, such as desktops, as computing substrates for a variety of applications. However, addressing the exponentially ...
Electronic Theses and Dissertations: Progress, Issues, and Prospects
(Center for Digital Discourse and Culture, Virginia Tech, 2009)
This module addresses the concepts, development and implementation of digital library protocols and covers the roles of protocols in information retrieval systems (IR) and Service Oriented Architectures (SOA).
Integration of VT ETD-db with Banner
(Department of Computer Science, Virginia Polytechnic Institute & State University, 2008), TR-08-04
The Electronic Thesis and Dissertation database (ETD-db) was developed at Virginia Tech by Digital Library and Archives for the VT Graduate School and the Networked Digital Library of Theses and Dissertations (NDLTD). The ...
Science of Digital Libraries(SciDL)
(Department of Computer Science, Virginia Polytechnic Institute & State University, 2003), TR-03-13
Our purpose is to ensure that people and institutions better manage information through digital libraries (DLs). Thus we address a fundamental human and social need, which is particularly urgent in the modern Information ...
Studying the Functional Genomics of Stress Responses in Loblolly Pine With the Expresso Microarray Experiment Management System
Conception, design, and implementation of cDNA microarray experiments present avariety of bioinformatics challenges for biologists and computational scientists. The multiplestages of data acquisition and analysis have ...
XcisClique: analysis of regulatory bicliques
Background Modeling of cis-elements or regulatory motifs in promoter (upstream) regions of genes is a challenging computational problem. In this work, set of regulatory motifs simultaneously present in the promoters of a ...
Label-free DNA sequence detection using oligonucleotide functionalized optical fiber
(AIP Publishing, 2006-10-01)
The authors present a label-free method for direct detection of deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) sequences. The capture DNA is immobilized onto the surface of a silica optical fiber tip by means of the layer-by-layer electrostatic ...
