  • Patent number: 7447863
    Abstract: A storage resource management system includes a storage apparatus having one or more pieces of volumes and a management computer. The management computer holds volume characteristic information and use field sort volume information. The management computer executes a single use field portion allocating sequence for allocating the use fields to volumes having volume characteristics suitable for a single use field from volume characteristics described in the use field sort volume information, and also, executes a plural use fields common portion allocating sequence for allocating volumes having volume characteristics suitable for the plural use fields to any use field. Since the sequences are executed by the management computer, such a use field sort volume allocation information is formed which has described that one use field in maximum is allocated to the volume, namely one use field is allocated thereto, or none of these use fields is allocated to the volume.

  • Patent number: 6949383
    Abstract: This application provides a method for mutagenesis of a gene, which comprises introducing much more point mutations into one strand of double-stranded genomic DNA of cell or organism individual than into another strand. In accordance with such a method, it is now possible to efficiently and effectively construct various useful mutants of microorganisms, cells or organism individuals. It is also now possible by analyzing the mutating conditions of the gene to clarify the mechanism of drug resistance, to estimate the occurrence of a novel insensible microorganism or to develop a drug therefor, to analyze the mutation of an oncogene and the mechanisms of cancer metastasis and increase in malignancy, to develop a therapeutic method using these mechanisms, etc.
