Title: Gap Resolution

Abstract

Gap Resolution is a software package that was developed to improve Newbler genome assemblies by automating the closure of sequence gaps caused by repetitive regions in the DNA. This is done by performing the follow steps:1) Identify and distribute the data for each gap in sub-projects. 2) Assemble the data associated with each sub-project using a secondary assembler, such as Newbler or PGA. 3) Determine if any gaps are closed after reassembly, and either design fakes (consensus of closed gap) for those that closed or lab experiments for those that require additional data. The software requires as input a genome assembly produce by the Newbler assembler provided by Roche and 454 data containing paired-end reads.

  • We developed the computer program TGS[underscore]FIT to aid in researching the tomographic gamma scanner method of nondestructive assay. This software, written in C-programming, language, implements a full Beer's Law attenuation correction in reconstructing low-resolution emission tomograms. The attenuation coefficients for the corrections are obtained by reconstructing a transmission tomogram of the same resolution. The command-driven interface, combined with (crude) simulation capabilities and command file control, allows design studies to be performed in a semi-automated manner.
  • The Safeguards Technology Program at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory is developing isotopic analysis software that is constructed to be adaptable to a wide variety of applications and requirements. The MGA++ project will develop an analysis capability based on an architecture consisting of a set of tools that can be configured by an executive to perform a specific task. The software will check the results or progress of an analysis and change assumptions and methodology as required to arrive at an optimum analysis. The software is intended to address analysis needs that arise from material control and accountability, treaty verification,more » complex reconfiguration and environmental clean-up applications.« less
  • Obtaining high-resolution gamma-ray measurements using high-purity germanium (HPGe) detectors in the field has been of limited practicality due to the need to use and maintain a supply of liquid nitrogen (LN{sub 2}). This same constraint limits high-resolution gamma measurements in unattended safeguards or treaty Verification applications. We are developing detectors and software to greatly extend the applicability of high-resolution germanium-based measurements for these situations.
  • The authors present a suite of software tools for the analysis of the high resolution mass spectra of large molecular weight species. This program, called MERCURY, includes tools for: the prediction of isotope distribution patterns for arbitrary molecular formulas, including fragment ions; a prototype automated wavelet transform algorithm for assigning the charge states of spectral features; a {open_quotes}protein editor{close_quotes} to conveniently generate molecular formulas for biopolymers and biopolymer fragment ions from sequence information; and the assignment of protein sequences by computer assisted interpretation of ladder sequences from collisionally activated dissociation (CAD) data.
