  • Publication number: 20210017603
    Abstract: The present disclosure provides methods and systems for personalized genetic testing of a subject. In some embodiments, a sequencing assay is performed on a biological sample from the subject, which then leads to genetic information related to the subject. Next, nucleic acid molecules are array-synthesized or selected based on the genetic information derived from data of the sequencing assay. At least some of the nucleic acid molecules may then be used in an assay which may provide additional information on one or more biological samples from the subject or a biological relative of the subject.

  • Patent number: 10828797
    Abstract: A method of patterning a combined layer of an electrically-conductive film, such as indium-tin-oxide (ITO), that is disposed on a flexible substrate includes bending the combined layer about a radius of curvature. The combined layer is initially bent in a first direction so that the electrically-conducive film is distal to the radius of curvature, so as to form initial dielectric lines in the electrically-conductive film. The combined layer is then bent in another direction so that the electrically-conductive film is proximate to the radius of curvature to further enhance the dielectric performance of the initial dielectric lines. The dielectric lines electrically isolate a portion of the electrically-conductive film that is disposed therebetween, to form an electrically conductive electrode.

  • Patent number: 10769850
    Abstract: Computer-implemented systems and methods for updating a polygonal mesh representation of a model are provided. A model comprises a set of topologies, and a meshing state is maintained for each topology of the set of topologies. The meshing state indicates, for a given topology, whether a polygonal mesh exists and is valid. A change made to the model is determined, where the change comprises a modification to a geometry of the model or a modification to mesh settings of a polygonal mesh representation of the model. One or more topologies of the set of topologies that are affected by the change are determined, and the meshing state for the affected one or more topologies is updated. Based on the one or more updated meshing states, a set of meshing operations needed to bring the polygonal mesh representation of the model up-to-date is determined.
