Systems and methods for identifying pathogens in food using whole genome sequencing are provided. In some embodiments, gene sequence data derived from food pathogen samples are subject to bioinformatics processing in order to align the sequences and detect single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs). In some embodiments, a SNP matrix is generated and a phylogenic tree is created, and it is determined whether the strain of pathogens detected in one food pathogen sample is the same strain of pathogen present in other previously-encountered food pathogen samples. If a match between samples is determined, then metadata associated with the matching samples is leveraged to trace the spread of the strain through a supply chain in space and time, and parties associated with the matching samples may be notified.


Systems, apparatus, and methods for continuously authenticating individuals are provided. A continuous authentication system receives first biometric authentication information from an individual. The system compares the first biometric authentication information to stored first biometric information to identify the individual and links the identified individual to a device for obtaining second biometric authentication information. The device for obtaining second biometric authentication information continuously receives second biometric authentication information. The continuous authentication system compares the received second biometric authentication information to stored second biometric information that corresponds to the individual to determine if the received second biometric authentication information corresponds to the individual. The individual may be granted access to one or more access points if it is determined that the received second biometric authentication information corresponds to the individual.


A method and system for automatically enforcing a hybrid branching strategy include receiving a changeset designated for a branch. In response to receiving the changeset, the system may automatically determine whether a merge conflict associated with the changeset exists between the branch and an associated protected branch, and the system may automatically determine whether the changeset is up to date. Upon determining that no merge conflict exists, the system automatically initiates execution of a continuous integration testing pipeline. The continuous integration testing pipeline includes a series of tests applied to the changeset. If the changeset passes the series of tests, the system automatically merges the changeset with the associated protected branch.


Systems and methods for performing face recognition and image searching are provided. A system for face recognition and image searching includes an ingestion system, a search system, a user device, and a database of galley files that include feature vectors. The ingestion system crawls the internet starting with a seed URL to scrape image files and generate feature vectors. Feature vectors of images input by a user may be compared by the search system to feature vectors in the gallery files. A method for generating feature vectors includes landmark detection, component aligning, texture mapping, vector computation, comparing cluster centers defined by vectors stored in a database with vectors generated based on an input image, linear discriminant analysis, and principal component analysis.


Methods and systems for seamlessly integrating an end-to-end acquisition process using a flexible data structure are disclosed. A flexible data structure consistent with these methods and systems may connect the buyers requirement to the vendors proposed solution, facilitating a requirement-by-requirement evaluation process allowing buyers to evaluate content as well as price of a proposal. Embodiments of the present invention standardize the format of proposals, allowing buyers to more easily compare vendors proposals side-by-side. Still other embodiments of the present invention produce an error checking report to further aid vendors in improving proposals and buyers in evaluating proposals.


In one embodiment, a system comprising a processor and a memory storing instructions executable by the processor creates an index for a nucleic acid sequence. The index comprises a plurality of elements. Each element corresponds to a permutation of a nucleic acid sequence. Data representing a nucleic acid sequence is received. A subsequence of the nucleic acid sequence is identified in the data at a first position of the nucleic acid sequence. A hash of the subsequence is computed to determine a corresponding element of the index. Position data reflecting the first position is stored in the corresponding element of the index.

Systems and methods for performing genomic information compression, transmission, and decompression are provided. A system for compression, transmission, and decompression of genomic information includes a first computer associated with a first index and a second computer associated with a second index, each index containing reference permutations of nucleic acid sequence portions, each permutation associated with a reference number. The first computer uses input genomic information and the first index to produce a compressed representation of the genomic information, and transmits the compressed representation to the second computer. The second computer uses the compressed representation and the second index to assemble a data representation of the genomic information. The compressed representation comprises references to permutations, indications of locations of each permutation in the input information, indications of variations to permutations, and/or indications of sequence length.


A system and method is provided for detecting market irregularities. Consistent with disclosed embodiments, a processing entity may receive securities prices over a first predetermined time period, the securities prices representing prices of at least a subset of securities within a particular market. The processing entity may compare securities price changes for a first security in the subset with securities price changes for every other security in the subset, and may determine a correlation between the first security and at least one other security in the subset based on the comparison of securities prices. Additionally, the processing entity may create a first network by associating the first security with each security in the subset determined to be correlated with the first security, and may compare the first network with one or more previously created networks to determine one or more market irregularities for the first security.
