  • Publication number: 20190026428
    Abstract: Systems, platforms, methods and media for providing genomic services are disclosed. In one example, a genomic services platform comprises a network interface through which are received genomic sequence reads derived from a biological sample obtained from a user The platform also includes a bioinformatics processing pipeline including a read alignment module configured to generate observed sequence data by aligning the sequence reads relative to a reference sequence, a variant calling module operative to identify observed variants in the observed sequence data, and a variant refinement module for producing a set of refined variants associated with the user. A variant imputation module produces a set of imputed variants associated with the user, and a variant storage module disposed to receive a query from network infrastructure of a partner application provider and to provide selected ones of the refined or imputed variants in response to the query.

    Abstract: Systems, platforms, methods and media for providing genomic services are disclosed. In one example, a genomic services platform comprises a network interface through which genomic sequence reads derived from a biological sample obtained from a user are received. The platform also includes a bioinformatics processing pipeline that includes a read alignment module configured to receive a genomics file from genomic sequencing equipment and use data contained therein to generate observed sequence data by aligning the sequence reads relative to a reference sequence. A variant calling module identifies observed variants in the observed sequence data and stores the observed variants in a variant calling file. A variant refinement module produces genotype data including a set of refined variants associated with the user, and a variant imputation module produces a set of imputed variants associated with the user.

  • Patent number: 9430141
    Abstract: Described herein are techniques for adding adaptive annotations to an electronic content item. For example, a user may insert an annotation by hand drawing the annotation over the content of the content item, in white space around the content, or within an annotation window. The user may also anchor, associate, or link annotations to particular portion of the content item, such that when the content is displayed or rendered on a display of an electronic device, the annotation appears in-line with the content and adjacent to the associated portion.

  • Publication number: 20160035048
    Abstract: A collaborative system and method for performing wellsite tasks for performing oilfield operations is provided. The system includes a universal bank to store wellsite materials and wellsite instructions, a tag to identify the new wellsite materials, a mobile unit carried by an operator at the wellsite, and a universal bank. The mobile unit is connectable to the universal bank via a wellsite communication link, and includes a wellsite input and a wellsite receiver. The universal bank is connectable to universal resources via a universal communication link, and includes a universal receiver to receive the new wellsite materials from the universal bank. The universal bank includes a universal input to upload universal materials and validated wellsite instructions to the universal bank based on the input wellsite materials whereby wellsite materials and wellsite instructions are selectively accessible by the operator.

  • Patent number: 9025296
    Abstract: A transient voltage suppressor may include a silicon controlled rectifier (SCR) having an anode coupled to Vcc. The SCR may include a PNP transistor (Q2) and an NPN transistor (Q3), the PNP transistor having a base in common with a collector of the NPN transistor and the PNP transistor having a collector in common with a base of the NPN transistor. The TVS may further include a Zener diode having an anode and cathode, wherein the anode is directly coupled to the base of the NPN transistor and/or the cathode is directly coupled to the base of the PNP transistor, and an additional NPN transistor (Q1). The cathode of the SCR may be directly coupled to a base of the additional NPN transistor, and a collector and emitter of the additional NPN transistor may be directly coupled in series between VCC and ground.
