  • Traylor-Knowles, Nikki; Hansen, Ulla; Dubuc, Timothy Q; Martindale, Mark Q; Kaufman, Les; Finnerty, John R (BioMed Central, 2010-4-18)
    BACKGROUND. The transcription factors of the LSF/Grainyhead (GRH) family are characterized by the possession of a distinctive DNA-binding domain that bears no clear relationship to other known DNA-binding domains, with the ...
  • Giordano, Joti; Ge, Yongchao; Gelfand, Yevgeniy; Abrusán, György; Benson, Gary; Warburton, Peter E (Public Library of Science, 2007-7-13)
    The constant bombardment of mammalian genomes by transposable elements (TEs) has resulted in TEs comprising at least 45% of the human genome. Because of their great age and abundance, TEs are important in comparative ...
  • Sullivan, James C; Sher, Daniel; Eisenstein, Miriam; Shigesada, Katsuya; Reitzel, Adam M; Marlow, Heather; Levanon, Ditsa; Groner, Yoram; Finnerty, John R; Gat, Uri (BioMed Central, 2008-8-5)
    BACKGROUND. Members of the Runx family of transcriptional regulators, which bind DNA as heterodimers with CBFβ, are known to play critical roles in embryonic development in many triploblastic animals such as mammals and ...
  • Balasubramanian, Mukund; Polimeni, Jonathan R.; Schwartz, Eric L. (Boston University Center for Adaptive Systems and Department of Cognitive and Neural Systems, 2007-12)
    We present two algorithms for computing distances along a non-convex polyhedral surface. The first algorithm computes exact minimal-geodesic distances and the second algorithm combines these distances to compute exact ...
  • Mullally, William; Sclaroff, Stan; Betke, Margrit (Boston University Computer Science Department, 2009-03-11)
    We propose a novel image registration framework which uses classifiers trained from examples of aligned images to achieve registration. Our approach is designed to register images of medical data where the physical condition ...
  • Liu, Likai; Kfoury, Assaf (Boston University Computer Science Department, 2008-01-24)
    In our previous work, we developed TRAFFIC(X), a specification language for modeling bi-directional network flows featuring a type system with constrained polymorphism. In this paper, we present two ways to customize the ...
  • Guirguis, Mina; Bestavros, Azer; Matta, Ibrahim (Boston University Computer Science Department, 2003-12-02)
    For a given TCP flow, exogenous losses are those occurring on links other than the flow's bottleneck link. Exogenous losses are typically viewed as introducing undesirable "noise" into TCP's feedback control loop, leading ...
  • Crovella, Mark E.; Bestavros, Azer (Boston University Computer Science Department, 1995-10-12)
    Recently the notion of self-similarity has been shown to apply to wide-area and local-area network traffic. In this paper we examine the mechanisms that give rise to self-similar network traffic. We present an explanation ...
  • Martin, Michael (University of Chicago Press, 1964)
  • Bestavros, Azer; Kim, Gitae (Boston University Computer Science Department, 1997-01-24)
    While ATM bandwidth-reservation techniques are able to offer the guarantees necessary for the delivery of real-time streams in many applications (e.g. live audio and video), they suffer from many disadvantages that make ...
  • Guiguis, Mina; Bestavros, Azer; Matta, Ibrahim (Boston University Computer Science Department, 2004-01-30)
    In this paper, we expose an unorthodox adversarial attack that exploits the transients of a system's adaptive behavior, as opposed to its limited steady-state capacity. We show that a well orchestrated attack could introduce ...
  • Mehta, Pankaj; Mukhopadhyay, Ranjan; Wingreen, Ned S (Physical Biology, 2008)
    Cells are known to utilize biochemical noise to probabilistically switch between distinct gene expression states. We demonstrate that such noise-driven switching is dominated by tails of probability distributions and is ...
  • Londono, Jorge; Manjanatha; Han, Zhinan Jenny (Boston University Computer Science Department, 2006-07-14)
    The SNBENCH is a general-purpose programming environment and run-time system targeted towards a variety of Sensor applications such as environmental sensing, location sensing, video sensing, etc. In its current structure, ...
  • Chang, Ching; Sweha, Raymond; Papapetrou (Boston University Computer Science Department, 2006-07-14)
    The purpose of this project is the creation of a graphical "programming" interface for a sensor network tasking language called STEP. The graphical interface allows the user to specify a program execution graphically from ...
  • Burke, Dustin; Cecere, Dave; Ben Freiberg (Boston University Computer Science Department, 2006-12-16)
    In this project we design and implement a centralized hashing table in the snBench sensor network environment. We discuss the feasibility of this approach and compare and contrast with the distributed hashing architecture, ...
  • Parmer, Gabriel; Zervas, Georgios; Bagchi, Angshuman (Boston University Computer Science Department, 2006-07-14)
    It is useful in systems that must support multiple applications with various temporal requirements to allow application-specific policies to manage resources accordingly. However, there is a tension between this goal and ...
  • Araki, Osamu (Boston University Center for Adaptive Systems and Department of Cognitive and Neural Systems, 1993-05)
    We can recognize objects through receiving continuously huge temporal information including redundancy and noise, and can memorize them. This paper proposes a neural network model which extracts pre-recognized patterns ...
  • Vasconcelos, Marisa; Crovella, Mark (Boston University Computer Science Department, 2008-09-11)
    Localization is essential feature for many mobile wireless applications. Data collected from applications such as environmental monitoring, package tracking or position tracking has no meaning without knowing the location ...
  • Buzan, Dan; Sclaroff, Stan; Kollios, George (Boston University Computer Science Department, 2004-04-23)
    A system is described that tracks moving objects in a video dataset so as to extract a representation of the objects' 3D trajectories. The system then finds hierarchical clusters of similar trajectories in the video dataset. ...
