IMP: a multi-species functional genomics portal for integration, visualization and prediction of protein functions and networks
AuthorWong, Aaron K.; Park, Christopher Y.; Greene, Casey S.; Bongo, Lars Ailo; Guan, Yuanfang; Troyanskaya, Olga
Integrative multi-species prediction (IMP) is an interactive web server that enables molecular biologists to interpret experimental results and to generate hypotheses in the context of a large cross-organism compendium of functional predictions and networks. The system provides a framework for biologists to analyze their candidate gene sets in the context of functional networks, as they expand or focus these sets by mining functional relationships predicted from integrated high-throughput data. IMP integrates prior knowledge and data collections from multiple organisms in its analyses. Through flexible and interactive visualizations, researchers can compare functional contexts and interpret the behavior of their gene sets across organisms. Additionally, IMP identifies homologs with conserved functional roles for knowledge transfer, allowing for accurate function predictions even for biological processes that have very few experimental annotations in a given organism. IMP currently supports seven organisms (Homo sapiens, Mus musculus, Rattus novegicus, Drosophila melanogaster, Danio rerio, Caenorhabditis elegans and Saccharomyces cerevisiae), does not require any registration or installation and is freely available for use at http://imp.princeton.edu.

Implementing an electronic health record in a Nigerian secondary healthcare facility. Prospects and challenges Attah, Ambrose Ojadale (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2017-11-02)Nigeria is witnessing continuing advocacy and increase in number of individuals yearning for computerization of health information and healthcare processes. However, little is known about the opinions of the diverse healthcare providers who would ensure the successful implementation and meaningful use of health information technology in the country (Adeleke, Erinle et al. 2015). This study explores ...
Viken Valvåg, Steffen (Doctoral thesis; Doktorgradsavhandling, 2012-01-30)MapReduce has become a widely employed programming model for large-scale data-intensive computations. Traditional MapReduce engines employ dynamic routing of data as a core mechanism for fault tolerance and load balancing. An alternative mechanism is static routing, which reduces the need to store temporary copies of intermediate data, but requires a tighter coupling between the components for ...
Thomassen, Sigurd (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2017-12-14)Due to the large increase of image data in animal surveillance, an effective and efficient way of labeling said data is required. Over the past few years the Climate-ecological Observatory for Arctic Tundra (COAT) project have deployed dozens of cameras in eastern Finnmark, Norway during winter, which have resulted in a large volume of wildlife images which is used to document the effects of climate ...
