Several problems in computational biology require the all-against-all pairwise comparisons of tens of thousands of individual biological sequences. Each such comparison can be performed with the well-known Needleman-Wunsch alignment algorithm. However, with the rapid growth of biological databases, performing all possible comparisons with this algorithm in serial becomes extremely time-consuming. The massive computational power of

A web-based dermatology image management application, Missouri Dermatology Image Database (MDID), has been developed to facilitate dermatology practices. The digital images captured offsite are transferred to MDID’s secure server via encrypted connection and user authentication. Uploaded images can be organized by multiple criteria, and patients and images can be easily searched. Originally, the MDID database

Medical professionals in various specialties work closely with digital images for diagnosis, research and education. Electronic applications of image management are emerging in virtually every medical specialty, including cardiology, radiology, pathology, dermatology, orthopedics, OB/GYN etc.  Compared to radiology, there is a less well-established adoption of such applications as PACS in dermatology in daily practices.

Chemotherapy-Induced Nausea and Vomiting (CINV) are the most feared and common side-effects of chemotherapy for cancer patients. The main care plan for CINV consists of preventative care using antiemetics before chemotherapy. CINV considerably impairs the life quality of cancer patients and increases the healthcare cost due to extended hospitalization or re-hospitalization. Thus, it is imperative

A novel, web-based dermatology image management application (MDID) has been developed to facilitate the practices in the Department of Dermatology at the University of Missouri School of Medicine. Since its launch in early January, there are over 1700 images of over 500 patients have been uploaded to the MDID.  What are the conventional practices? Are
