Stanford University undergraduate honors thesis style — modifications to the report style. This is unofficial and created originally for theses in the Civil & Environmental Engineering department. Modified from the 'suthesis-2e' PhD thesis style document for Stanford University PhD dissertations by Joseph Pallas and modified by Emma Pease.
This is a template we have designed to facilitate the reporting of whole genome sequencing-based results for Mycobacterium tuberculosis diagnosis, phenotyping, and epidemiologcal clustering. A manuscript describing how we arrived at this template is being submitted to PeerJ in October, 2017. We will update this document with a link to the article – "Evidence-Based Design and Evaluation of a Whole Genome Sequencing Clinical Report for the Reference Microbiology Laboratory" – when it comes online.
Recent work on information extraction has suggested that fast, interactive tools can be highly effective; however, creating a usable system is challenging, and few publically available tools exist. In this paper we present IKE, a new extraction tool that performs fast, interactive bootstrapping to develop high-quality extraction patterns for targeted relations, and provides novel solutions to these usability concerns. In particular, it uses a novel query language that is expressive, easy to understand, and fast to execute - essential requirements for a practical system - and is the first interactive extraction tool to seamlessly integrate symbolic and distributional methods for search. An initial evaluation suggests that relation tables can be populated substantially faster than by manual pattern authoring or using fully automated tools, while retaining accuracy, an important step towards practical knowledge-base construction.
