An Atlas of the Speed of Copy Number Changes in Animal Gene Families and Its Implications
The notion that gene duplications generating new genes and functions is commonly accepted in evolutionary biology. However, this assumption is more speculative from theory rather than well proven in genome-wide studies. ...
The Genome Reverse Compiler: an explorative annotation tool
Background As sequencing costs have decreased, whole genome sequencing has become a viable and integral part of biological laboratory research. However, the tools with which genes can be found and functionally characterized ...
Electronic Theses and Dissertations: Progress, Issues, and Prospects
(Center for Digital Discourse and Culture, Virginia Tech, 2009)
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 ...
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).
Reliable method for determination of the velocity of a sinker in a high-pressure falling body type viscometer
(AIP Publishing, 2002-10-01)
We present a new sensor configuration and data reduction process to improve the accuracy and reliability of determining the terminal velocity of a falling sinker in falling body type viscometers. This procedure is based ...
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 ...
H++: a server for estimating pK(a)s and adding missing hydrogens to macromolecules
The structure and function of macromolecules depend critically on the ionization (protonation) states of their acidic and basic groups. A number of existing practical methods predict protonation equilibrium pK constants ...
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 ...
