  • Patent number: 10777301
    Abstract: The present invention is generally directed to a hierarchical genome assembly process for producing high-quality de novo genome assemblies. The method utilizes a single, long-insert, shotgun DNA library in conjunction with Single Molecule, Real-Time (SMRT®) DNA sequencing, and obviates the need for additional sample preparation and sequencing data sets required for previously described hybrid assembly strategies. Efficient de novo assembly from genomic DNA to a finished genome sequence is demonstrated for several microorganisms using as little as three SMRT® cells, and for bacterial artificial chromosomes (BACs) using sequencing data from just one SMRT® Cell. Part of this new assembly workflow is a new consensus algorithm which takes advantage of SMRT® sequencing primary quality values, to produce a highly accurate de novo genome sequence, exceeding 99.999% (QV 50) accuracy.

  • Patent number: 10729981
    Abstract: Methods for matching online users in a networked interactive entertainment simulation are provided. In one aspect, a method includes receiving a user request for a user for joining an online session of the simulation. The user request is associated with a set of criteria for matching the user with other online users. An available population of users and a moving average of elapsed time to match for other users are determined. The set of criteria is adjusted based on the available population and the moving average of elapsed time. Finding other online users matching the adjusted set of criteria is initiated. The online session is started based on found online users. Systems and machine-readable media are also provided.

  • Publication number: 20200226642
    Abstract: Techniques for inserting advertising content into digital content are disclosed. The system may determine a compatibility between advertising content and digital content, determine candidate advertising content and candidate digital content using the determined compatibility, determine that the candidate digital content includes an advertising zone specifying an area where advertising content may be inserted, determine that an advertising slot of the candidate advertising content matches the advertising zone, and select digital content from the candidate digital content. The system may further select advertising content from the candidate advertising content, and combine selected digital content and selected advertising content by inserting the selected advertising content into the advertising zone.

  • Patent number: 10688573
    Abstract: A hole saw includes a base member configured to secure the hole saw to a drive device and a blade member extending orthogonally from each side of the base member. Each blade member is configured having respective distal ends that flex transversely to a longitudinal cutting direction of the blade member. Responsive to rotational movement of the hole saw via the drive device against a structure, a medial location of each blade member creates an initial respective linear cutting path into the structure, and further movement of the respective blade members into the structure cause the distal ends of the respective blade members to flex transversely to the cutting direction and follow the initial linear cutting path despite the rotational movement of the hole saw relative to the structure to produce a linear cut through the structure.

  • Patent number: 10642471
    Abstract: Dual timeline visualizations include a detail timescale shown along two item regions. Display objects shown in an item region may represent events, activities, or multiple stacked events and activities from a set of chronological data items. Display objects have positions and sizes representing those of the corresponding events and activities, and may include data-related or user-selected colors and/or hashing. The detail timescale, in unison with the item regions, may be scrollable and resizable in the direction of time. The item regions may be separately scrollable and resizable in another direction. A visualization may also include an overview panel representing a summary view of both sets of chronological data items, with its own timescale, and a lens showing the position of the detail timescale and item regions.
