  • Patent number: 10192028
    Abstract: The computational cost for a mapping process performed in analyzing genome/exome/transcriptome is reduced by sorting all cyclic permutations or suffixes of all read sequences to allow a search to be performed on the basis of any base sequence as a key. Also performed is computing and storing, for each base position in a genome sequence, the minimum length for uniqueness (MLU) at which a partial sequence starting from the base position becomes unique in the genome. In analysis of variations, a target region is scanned to inspect the number of matching read sequences that contain a partial sequence with a length of MLU and thus estimate the position of a variation, and then, the read sequences are collected at a position where the possibility of a variation having occurred is high to perform comparison analysis of the sequences.

    Abstract: Embodiments of the present invention provide systems, methods, and computer storage media for facilitating efficient replication of hierarchical structures. In the regard, the number of nodes within a hierarchical structure to replicate is minimized such that the hierarchical structure is more efficiently replicated. Generally, to determine which nodes to replicate, node identifiers, such as hash values, that represent the content of the corresponding nodes can be utilized. In this manner, upon edits being made to content within a hierarchical structure, node identifiers can be updated to reflect the edited content. When a replication operation is initiated, the node identifiers for the current content existing on one computing device can be compared to the node identifiers associated with the previously replicated content on another computing device. The particular nodes to replicate can be based on any discrepancies between the corresponding node identifiers.

  • Patent number: 9971794
    Abstract: Embodiments relate to converting data object(s) from a multi-source database environment into a single-source database environment. Such a conversion may be desirable to increase performance and/or reduce consumption of processing resources. An engine is configured to receive a multi-source database universe from a repository. The engine analyzes that universe to identify details thereof for conversion, e.g., connections, tables, views, alias tables, etc. A new single-source connection is registered, and then the single-source universe is re-generated through a universe conversion algorithm, an automatic function mapping algorithm, and a query generation algorithm. Embodiments avoid labor intensive manual re-creation of the universe, and may be implemented as an automatic conversion wizard also updating dependent report queries per new single-source query patterns.

  • Patent number: 9959503
    Abstract: A social networking system receives messages from users that include hashtags. The social networking system may use a natural language model to identify terms in the hashtag corresponding to words or phrases of the hashtag. The words or phrases may be used to modify a string of the hashtag. The social networking system may also generate computer models to determine likely membership of a message with various hashtags. Prior to generating the computer models, the social networking system may filter certain hashtags from eligibility for computer modeling, particularly hashtags that are not frequently used or that more typically appear as normal text in a message instead of as a hashtag. The social networking system may also calibrate the computer model outputs by comparing a test message output with outputs of a calibration group that includes positive and negative examples with respect to the computer model output.

  • Patent number: 9942106
    Abstract: A network broker divides IP address space into subnets to allow IT infrastructure transfers using a cloud computing environment. A link established between a client and network broker allows transfer of data and provides connectivity between the client and cloud providers. IT infrastructure to be divested is provisioned onto subnets in a cloud environment. A second link is established via the network broker between the entity being divested and the provisioned IT infrastructure. Client access to provisioned IT infrastructure is cut by rerouting, at the network broker, traffic destined to the subnet(s) hosting the provisioned IT infrastructure from the link to the second link. After a new owner assimilates the divested IT infrastructure using the second link, network broker routing rules are adjusted to sever access of the new owner to the subnet(s) hosting the divested IT infrastructure and return access to the subnet(s) to the client.
