  • Publication number: 20210064611
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and computer storage media for processing search queries using item-based search refinement are provided. In response to a search query, search result items are displayed on a search interface. The search result items each have an associated item-specific control having embedded selectable hierarchical category classifications. Upon selecting an item-specific control, the item-specific control is displayed. A selection of an embedded hierarchical category classification is received to cause execution of an embedded-item search operation. An embedded-item search operation is executed to identify a subset of the items using the selected hierarchical category classification. The associated item-specific control further has embedded selectable attributes. A selection of an embedded attribute is further received to cause execution of the embedded-item search operation.

  • Publication number: 20210054416
    Abstract: Some aspects of this disclosure provide compositions, methods, systems, and kits for controlling the activity of RNA-programmable endonucleases, such as Cas9, or for controlling the activity of proteins comprising a Cas9 variant fused to a functional effector domain, such as a nuclease, nickase, recombinase, deaminase, transcriptional activator, transcriptional repressor, or epigenetic modifying domain. For example, the inventive proteins provided comprise a ligand-dependent intein, the presence of which inhibits one or more activities of the protein (e.g., gRNA binding, enzymatic activity, target DNA binding). The binding of a ligand to the intein results in self-excision of the intein, restoring the activity of the protein.

  • Publication number: 20210049344
    Abstract: Techniques for improving a blast pattern at a mining site include conducting an initial blast and recording the initial blast as a high speed optical video. The high speed optical video, and the blast pattern used in the initial blast are sent as inputs to a machine learning model, which correlates one or more characteristics of the region being blasted with measurements associated with characteristics of the region being blasted obtained from the high speed optical video. The machine learning model can then determine an improved blast pattern based on the correlation made. This improved blast pattern can be displayed on a user computing device, or transmitted to a drilling system to automatically drill the improved blast pattern for subsequent blasts.
