Cooperative Object Manipulation in Collaborative Virtual Environments
(Springer Nature, 2008-06-20)
Cooperative manipulation refers to the simultaneous manipulation of a virtual object by multiple users in an immersive virtual environment (VE). In this work, we present techniques for cooperative manipulation based on ...
An Architecture for Electronic Textiles
This paper makes a case for a communication architecture for electronic textiles (e-textiles). The properties and re- quirements of e-textile garments are described and analyzed. Based on these properties, the authors make ...
Network motif-based identification of transcription factor-target gene relationships by integrating multi-source biological data
Background Integrating data from multiple global assays and curated databases is essential to understand the spatio-temporal interactions within cells. Different experiments measure cellular processes at various widths ...
caBIG VISDA: modeling, visualization, and discovery for cluster analysis of genomic data
Background The main limitations of most existing clustering methods used in genomic data analysis include heuristic or random algorithm initialization, the potential of finding poor local optima, the lack of cluster number ...
Knowledge-guided multi-scale independent component analysis for biomarker identification
Background Many statistical methods have been proposed to identify disease biomarkers from gene expression profiles. However, from gene expression profile data alone, statistical methods often fail to identify biologically ...
The stochastic dynamics of rectangular and V-shaped atomic force microscope cantilevers in a viscous fluid and near a solid boundary
(American Institute of Physics, 2008-05-01)
Using a thermodynamic approach based upon the fluctuation-dissipation theorem, we quantify the stochastic dynamics of rectangular and V-shaped microscale cantilevers immersed in a viscous fluid. We show that the stochastic ...
Stochastic simulation of enzyme-catalyzed reactions with disparate timescales
(CELL PRESS, 2008-10-01)
Many physiological characteristics of living cells are regulated by protein interaction networks. Because the total numbers of these protein species can be small, molecular noise can have significant effects on the dynamical ...
The Connection, Winter 2008
(Virginia Tech, 2008)
This is a publication for the alumni of the Chemical Engineering Department at Virginia Tech.
Millisecond switching in solid state electrochromic polymer devices fabricated from ionic self-assembled multilayers
(AIP Publishing, 2008-01-01)
The electrochromic switching times of solid state conducting polymer devices fabricated by the ionic self-assembled multilayer method has been investigated. The devices were composed of bilayers of poly(3,4-ethylenedioxy ...
