  • Publication number: 20180067992
    Abstract: A divide-and-conquer global alignment algorithm for finding highly similar candidates of a sequence in database is disclosed. The invention gives a divide-and-conquer algorithm called Kart, that separates the given sequence into smaller pieces whose alignment can be carried out independently, and their concatenated alignment constitutes the global alignment of the entire sequence. Kart could be viewed as aligning multiple seeds simultaneously in parallel. We illustrate the idea using the read mapping of Next-generation sequencing (NGS) as an example. NGS provides a great opportunity to investigate genome-wide variation at nucleotide resolution. Due to the huge amount of data, NGS applications require very fast alignment algorithms. The invention can process long reads as fast as short reads. Furthermore, it can tolerate much higher error rates. The experiments show that Kart spends much less time on longer reads than most aligners and still produce reliable alignments.

  • Patent number: 9858850
    Abstract: An image adjusting method and a related display are applied to automatically adjust luminance of an image according to analyze of a gray level histogram of the image. The image adjusting method includes generating the gray level histogram of the image, dividing the gray level histogram into at least one first zone and one second zone, comparing a total amount of pixels in the first zone with a threshold, and utilizing a modification function to adjust luminance of each pixel within the first zone according to a comparison result. A grey level of the first zone is greater than a grey level of the second zone. Luminance of the first zone is decreased by the modification function while the total amount of pixels in the first zone is greater than the threshold.
