By Jennifer Van Grove2009-01-04 14:26:29 UTC It seems like every day there's at least five new Twitter apps popping up. The news of a shiny new Twitter toy gets dispersed through Twitter streams everywhere, hits critical mass, news dries up a bit, and then, if you're like me, you forget about it completely. So where do you turn when you need to reference multiple Twitter apps, see what others think, or view app ratings? You could ask your Twitter friends, do a quick search, or wander over to the Twitter Fan wiki, but there should be a better way, right? Given that Twitter doesn't offer a Twitter app store (and why the hell not?), Twitdom has jumped into the fray to be the answer to your twreams (twitter dreams) with their Twitter applications database. With Twitdom, you can browse apps in categories like mobile, plug-ins, and desktop clients, read descriptions, rate, and add your own comments. Twitdom currently lists 63 Twitter apps, which seems like a relatively small number … [Read more...] about Twitter App Database: Will You Use It?
Compatible Operating Systems: AllSupported Architectures: Platform independentIn the race to offer advanced features that attract buyers, consumer electronics devices manage ever-growing volumesConsumer electronics manufacturers rely on McObject’s eXtremeDB™ in-memory embedded database system to meet the stringent performance, reliability and minimal RAM and CPU requirements of new smart devices. ComparedYet with this simplicity, eXtremeDB offers “real database” features, including a high level data definition language (DDL), concurrent access, transactions, and flexible indexing–plus unexpected extras in a small footprint, RAM-based database for real-time systems, such as event notification, variable-length and complex data, and 64-bit support. All this has prompted Siemens, Philips, JVC, Genesis Microchip and other electronics leaders to embed eXtremeDB in their consumer devices.APPLICATION AREASAREAS FEATURES & BENEFITSIn-Memory Performance … [Read more...] about eXtremeDB In-Memory Embedded Database Tech Videos Industry Trends Featured Products Featured Tech Videos
Compatible Operating Systems: All Supported Architectures: Platform independentIn the race to offer advanced features, consumer electronics devices manage ever-growing volumes of increasingly complex data. MP3 players organize tracks via meta-data and user input such as playlists and ratings. Embedded gaming software demands concurrent data access, event notification and fast, flexible search. Set-top boxes offer a rich store of programming choices. Even cell phones must organize messages—often in multiple formats—logically, and retrieve them quickly. Consumer electronics manufacturers rely on McObject’s eXtremeDB Fusion hybrid in-memory/on-disk embedded database system to meet the stringent performance, reliability and form factor demands, as well as the RAM and CPU limits, of new smart devices. eXtremeDB Fusion offers stability, scalability and extensibility proven in years of deployment. Its streamlined architecture—designed from scratch for embedded … [Read more...] about eXtremeDB Fusion Eembedded Database System Tech Videos Industry Trends Featured Products Featured Tech Videos
Researchers in Japan have created a database of metabolites from blood samples collected from over 5,000 Japanese volunteers, making it freely available online as a valuable resource for researchers around the world. Metabolites and proteins control many of the processes inside our bodies, and also inform the interaction between our cells and their surroundings. Understanding these compounds and how they relate to each other more, could help researchers to evaluate the health state of people and develop new personalised treatments for various diseases. The database, which bioinformatics scientist Shu Tadaka from Tohoku University and his colleagues called jMorp, contains information about 306 metabolites and 256 common proteins found in humans. This includes their frequency, concentration, and how often they appeared in males or females and at what age. The database is unique in that, instead of just displaying raw data, it offers visitors a chance to see how the different metabolites … [Read more...] about A visual database of human plasma compounds
As the global population rises, estimated to hit nearly 10 billion by 2050, so does the need to boost crop yields and produce enough plant material for both food and sustainable alternative fuels. To help improve crop breeding strategies and overcome challenges such as making plants more tolerant of marginal lands, and stresses such as drought and low nutrient availability, researchers are focusing on understanding and promoting beneficial plant-microbe relationships. Published December 18, 2017 issue in Nature Genetics, a team led by researchers at the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Joint Genome Institute (JGI), a DOE Office of Science User Facility, and the Howard Hughes Medical Institute at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (UNC) have exploited a catalog of bacterial genomes to identify and characterize candidate genes that aid bacteria in adapting to plant environments, specifically genes involved in bacterial root colonization. Most of the studies in the field to … [Read more...] about A functional genomics database for plant microbiome studies
