  • Publication number: 20220147266
    Abstract: Techniques for implementing a QRAM by routing quantum information through multiple modes of a bosonic system are described. According to some aspects, a single bosonic system may be configured to maintain quantum information in a large number of independent modes at the same time. Suitable operations upon these modes may allow a quantum address value to be routed to modes associated with respective bits such that the only modes altered by the operations are those associated with the addresses being accessed. These modes may be operated upon based on the stored values then extracted to obtain the desired correlated superposition of the stored bit values in the addresses. The bits stored at the address locations may be classical bits, or may be qubits.

  • Publication number: 20220108773
    Abstract: COVID-19 has become a global pandemic after its inception in late 2019. SARS-CoV-2 genomes are sequenced and shared on public repositories at a fast pace. To keep up with these updates, datasets need to be refreshed and re-cleaned frequently. It may be difficult to analyze SARS-CoV-2 genomes for scientists with limited bioinformatics or programming knowledge. In the present disclosure, system and method embodiments for genome analysis and visualization are developed to address these challenges. A webserver may be used to enable simple and rapid analysis of genomes. Given a new sequence, the system may automatically predict gene boundaries and identify genetic variants, which are presented in an interactive genome visualizer and are downloadable for analysis.
