  • Patent number: 10998083
    Abstract: Methods and apparatus to identify and quantify the microorganisms present in a sample. Sequence reads are classified using existing methods, but the classification results are corrected to account for the number of reads expected to be falsely classified as determined through simulation. With statistics on the expected number of reads misclassified, a linear least squares method (non-negative or otherwise) or other related technique can be used to adjust the number of reads that are classified to various taxonomic units (e.g., species) and to determine more accurate values for the quantities of those taxonomic units actually present in the sample, eliminating microorganisms in taxonomic units falsely determined to be present in the sample.

  • Patent number: 10943049
    Abstract: Systems and methods are provided for predicting systematic design rule check (DRC) violations in a placement layout before routing is performed on the placement layout. A systematic DRC violation prediction system includes DRC violation prediction circuitry. The DRC violation prediction circuitry receives placement data associated with a placement layout. The DRC violation prediction circuitry inspects the placement data associated with the placement layout, and the placement data may include data associated with a plurality of regions of the placement layout, which may be inspected on a region-by-region basis. The DRC violation prediction circuitry predicts whether one or more systematic DRC violations would be present in the placement layout due to a subsequent routing of the placement layout.

  • Publication number: 20200357491
    Abstract: In healthcare associated infection (HAI) outbreak tracking, different transmission tree inference algorithm processes (40) are performed on genetic variants data (26) for a set of HAI infected persons to generate a plurality of transmission trees (42) representing parent-child infectious transmission links. For each transmission tree, the value (44) of a correlation metric is computed, which measures correlation of the transmission tree with a clinical correlate (46). For each random trial of a plurality of random trials (52), the value (54) of the correlation metric is also computed. A statistical likelihood (60) of each transmission tree given the clinical correlate is estimated from the computed values of the correlation metric for the random trials and for the transmission tree. This may, for example, be a p-value. An optimal transmission tree is selected from amongst the plurality of transmission trees based on the estimated statistical likelihoods.

  • Patent number: 10743134
    Abstract: A method for providing on-demand service information is provided. One or more processors determine, for a given geographic region, position information for each of a plurality of requesters for an on-demand service and position information for each of a plurality of service providers that can provide the on-demand service. A plurality of sub-regions is identified for the given geographic region. Based, at least in part, on the position information of the requesters and the service providers, one or more sub-regions are determined as being under-supplied by the plurality of service providers as compared to one or more other sub-regions. Information identifying the under-supplied sub-regions are provided to one or more service provider devices.

  • Publication number: 20200244164
    Abstract: A power converter module includes an active metal braze (AMB) substrate, power converter circuitry, and a housing. The AMB substrate includes an aluminum nitride base layer, a first conductive layer on a first surface of the aluminum nitride base layer, and a second conductive layer on a second surface of the aluminum nitride base layer opposite the first surface. The power converter circuitry includes a number of silicon carbide switching components coupled to one another via the first conductive layer. The housing is over the power converter circuitry and the AMB substrate. By using an AMB substrate with an aluminum nitride base layer, the thermal dissipation characteristics of the power converter module may be substantially improved while maintaining the structural integrity of the power converter module.
