  • Publication number: 20230306194
    Abstract: Systems and methods for data processing are described. Example embodiments include identifying chart data corresponding to a visual element of a user interface; selecting an insight type based on a chart category of the chart data; generating insight data for the insight type based on the chart data using a statistical measure corresponding to the insight type; generating an insight caption for the insight type by combining the insight data with a sentence template corresponding to the insight type; and communicating the insight caption to a user of the user interface.

  • Publication number: 20080168572
    Abstract: The invention provides a genome of the hyperthermophile Nanoarchaeum equitans, polypeptides, including enzymes, structural protein and binding proteins, derived from this genome, polynucleotides encoding these polypeptides, methods of making and using these polynucleotides and polypeptides. The invention also provides isolated hyperthermophile Nanoarchaeum equitans.

  • Publication number: 20070056053
    Abstract: The invention is directed to polypeptides having a glucosidase activity, including an alpha-glucosidase activity, polynucleotides encoding the polypeptides, and methods for making and using these polynucleotides and polypeptides. In one aspect, the polypeptides of the invention are used as alpha-glucosidases to catalyze the hydrolysis of starch into sugars, e.g., to convert liquefied starch to glucose. In one aspect, the polypeptides of the invention can catalyze the hydrolysis of both alpha-(1,4) and alpha-(1,6) glucose linkages. In one aspect, the polypeptides of the invention can catalyze the hydrolysis of both malto-oligosaccharides and liquefied starch.

  • Publication number: 20060259993
    Abstract: This invention provides amidases, polynucleotides encoding the amidases, methods of making and using these polynucleotides and polypeptides. In one aspect, the invention provides enzymes having secondary amidase activity, e.g., having activity in the hydrolysis of amides, including enzymes having peptidase, protease and/or hydantoinase activity. In alternative aspects, the enzymes of the invention can be used to used to increase flavor in food (e.g., enzyme ripened cheese), promote bacterial and fungal killing, modify and de-protect fine chemical intermediates, synthesize peptide bonds, carry out chiral resolutions, hydrolyze Cephalosporin C. The enzymes of the invention can be used to generate 7-aminocephalosporanic acid (7-ACA) and semi-synthetic cephalosporin antibiotics, including caphalothin, cephaloridine and cefuroxime. The enzymes of the invention can be used as antimicrobial agents, e.g., as cell wall hydrolytic agents.
