Dear router, let me make that decision for myself: extending DTN messages with routing and delivery software codes

Carlos Borrego Iglesias, Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona – Abstract: Delay and Disruption Tolerant Networking is extremely useful when source and destination nodes are intermittently connected. Active DTN introduces software code to improve DTN performance. DTN implementations use application-specific routing algorithms to overcome those limitations. However,…

Stochastic Computing

Rui Duarte, – Abstract: Stochastic computing has emerged as a computational paradigm that offers arithmetic operators with high-performance, compact implementations and robust to errors by producing approximate results. In stochastic computations, the data is encoded as pseudo-random bitstreams of 0s and 1s, which represent a…

Haplotype Assembly

Nadia Pisanti, Universitá di Pisa – Abstract: The human genome is diploid, which requires to assign heterozygous single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) to the two copies of the genome. The resulting haplotypes, lists of SNPs belonging to each copy, are crucial for downstream analyses in population…

Popping Superbubbles and identifying clumps

Ritu Kundu, Kings College – Abstract: The information that can be inferred or predicted from knowing the genomic sequence of an organism is astonishing. String algorithms are critical to this process. This talk provides an overview of two particular problems – Superbubbles (an important subgraph…

Optimal Computation of Avoided Words

Solon Pissis, Kings College – Abstract: The deviation of the observed frequency of a word w from its expected frequency in a given sequence x is used to determine whether or not the word is avoided. This concept is particularly useful in DNA linguistic analysis….
