  • Publication number: 20220177471
    Abstract: Imidazo[4,5-c]quinoline compounds having a substituent that is attached at the N-1 position by a branched group, single enantiomers of the compounds, pharmaceutical compositions containing the compounds, and methods of making the compounds are disclosed. Methods of use of the compounds as immune response modifiers, for inducing (or inhibiting) cytokine biosynthesis in humans and animals, and in the treatment of diseases including infectious and neoplastic diseases are also disclosed.

  • Publication number: 20220170861
    Abstract: Apparatus and methods for analyzing single molecule and performing nucleic acid sequencing. An apparatus can include an assay chip that includes multiple pixels with sample wells configured to receive a sample, which, when excited, emits emission energy; at least one element for directing the emission energy in a particular direction; and a light path along which the emission energy travels from the sample well toward a sensor. The apparatus also includes an instrument that interfaces with the assay chip. The instrument includes an excitation light source for exciting the sample in each sample well; a plurality of sensors corresponding the sample wells. Each sensor may detect emission energy from a sample in a respective sample well. The instrument includes at least one optical element that directs the emission energy from each sample well towards a respective sensor of the plurality of sensors.

  • Patent number: 7225129
    Abstract: A method of modeling speech distinctions within computer-animated talking heads that utilize the manipulation of speech production articulators for selected speech segments. Graphical representations of voice characteristics and speech production characteristics are generated in response to said speech segment. By way of example, breath images are generated such as particle-cloud images, and particle-stream images to represent the voiced characteristics such as the presence of stops and fricatives, respectively. The coloring on exterior portions of the talking head is displayed in response to selected voice characteristics such as nasality. The external physiology of the talking head is modulated, such as by changing the width and movement of the nose, the position of the eyebrows, and movement of the throat in response to the voiced speech characteristics such as pitch, nasality, and voicebox vibration, respectively.
