Reconstruction of Alternative Splice Variants and Associated Abundances from Short Sequence Reads (CSHL Genome Informatics Conference 2008)

submitted by: micha
The FLUX CAPACITOR : next generation sequencing technologies provide an unprecedented capacity for surveying the nucleic acid content of cells. This profound sequencing depth may allow in particular for exhaustively sequencing through the large dyanimc range of RNA abundances in the cell, overcoming limitations imposed by current (random) clone selection approaches. However, the very short reads produced by the most cost-effective such technologies make the reconstruction of complete RNA...

Robust source-seeking hybrid controllers for nonholonomic vehicles (experiment)

submitted by: mayhew

This video shows an experiment involving a mobile robot, an IR-camera vision system, and a wireless network. The robot queries the vision system for position information. The robot uses this position information to simulate a potential function in its environment. The hybrid controller uses these measurements in a coordination of vehicle steering and an optimization algorithm to drive the vehicle to the minimum of the function (shown as a blue 'x').
