    Abstract: A method of accessing data includes storing a table that includes a plurality of tablets corresponding to distinct non-overlapping table portions. Respective pluralities of tablet access objects and application objects are stored in a plurality of servers. A distinct application object and distinct tablet are associated with each tablet access object. Each application object corresponds to a distinct instantiation of an application associated with the table. The tablet access objects and associated application objects are redistributed among the servers in accordance with a first load-balancing criterion. A first request directed to a respective tablet is received from a client. In response, the tablet access object associated with the respective tablet is used to perform a data access operation on the respective tablet, and the application object associated with the respective tablet is used to perform an additional computational operation to produce a result to be returned to the client.

  • Publication number: 20210327534
    Abstract: Methods for determining a disease condition of a subject of a species are provided that comprises obtaining a dataset of fragment methylation patterns determined by methylation sequencing of nucleic acid from a biological sample of the subject. A fragment methylation pattern comprises the methylation state of each CpG site in the fragment. A patch including a channel comprising parameters for the methylation status of respective CpG sites in a set of CpG sites in a reference genome represented by the patch is constructed by populating, for each respective fragment in the plurality of fragments that aligns to the set of CpG sites, an instance of all or a portion of the plurality of parameters based on the methylation pattern of the respective fragment. Application of the patch to a patch convolutional neural network determines the disease condition of the subject.
