  • Genomic islands are key mobile DNA elements in bacterial evolution, that can distinguish pathogenic strains from each other, or distinguish pathogenic strains from non-pathogenic strains. Their detection in genomes is a challenging problem. We present 3 main software components that attack the island detection problem on two different bases: 1) the preference of islands to insert in chromosomal tRNA or tmRNA genes (, and 2) islands' sporadic occurrence among closely related strains. The latter principle is employed in both an algorithm ( and a visualization method ( Component finds islands based on their preference for a particular target genemore » type. We annotate each tRNA and tmRNA gene, find fragments of each such gene as candidates for the distal ends of islands, and filter candidates to remove false positives. Component uses islands found by and other methods as a training set to find new islands. Reference genomes are aligned using mugsy, then the "phylotypes" or patterns of occurrence in the reference set are determined for each position in the target genome, and those phylotypes most enriched in the training set of islands are followed to detect yet more islands. Component produces a big-data visualization of the chromosomally-ordered "pan-genome", that includes every gene of every reference genome (x-axis, pan-genome order; y-axis, reference genomes; color-coding, gene presence/absence etc.), islands appearing as dark patches.« less
  • Generates data for the associated paper and its supplementary data table, which are sets of residues and poles that define rational functions to approximate the Fermi-Dirac distribution.
  • The NIRP Core Software Suite is a core set of code that supports multiple applications. It includes miscellaneous base code for data objects, mathematic equations, and user interface components; and the framework includes several fully-developed software applications that exist as stand-alone tools to compliment other applications. The stand-alone tools are described below. Analyst Manager: An application to manage contact information for people (analysts) that use the software products. This information is often included in generated reports and may be used to identify the owners of calculations. Radionuclide Viewer: An application for viewing the DCFPAK radiological data. Compliments the Mixture Managermore » tool. Mixture Manager: An application to create and manage radionuclides mixtures that are commonly used in other applications. High Explosive Manager: An application to manage explosives and their properties. Chart Viewer: An application to view charts of data (e.g. meteorology charts). Other applications may use this framework to create charts specific to their data needs.« less
  • This software provides onsite analysis of the hyperspectral reflectance data acquired on an outdoor algal pond by a multichannel, fiber-coupled spectroradiometer. The analysis algorithm is based on numerical inversion of a reflectance model, in which the above-water reflectance is expressed as a function of the single backscattering albedo, which is dependent on the backscatter and absorption coefficients of the algal culture, which are in turn related to the algal biomass and pigment optical activity, respectively. Prior to the development of this software, while raw multichannel data were displayed in real time, analysis required a post-processing procedure to extract the relevantmore » parameters. This software provides the capability to track the temporal variation of such culture parameters in real time, as raw data are being acquired, or can be run in a post processing mode. The software allows the user to select between different algal species, incorporate the appropriate calibration data, and observe the quality of the resulting model inversions.« less
  • The purpose of the Sandia National Laboratories Advanced Simulation and Computing (ASC) Software Quality Plan is to clearly identify the practices that are the basis for continually improving the quality of ASC software products. The plan defines the ASC program software quality practices and provides mappings of these practices to Sandia Corporate Requirements CPR 1.3.2 and 1.3.6 and to a Department of Energy document, 'ASCI Software Quality Engineering: Goals, Principles, and Guidelines'. This document also identifies ASC management and software project teams responsibilities in implementing the software quality practices and in assessing progress towards achieving their software quality goals.
