Next-generation technologies generate an overwhelming amount of gene sequence data. Efficient annotation tools are required, to make this data amenable to functional genomics analyses. The Mercator pipeline automatically assigns functional terms to protein or nucleotide sequences. It uses the MapMan “BIN” ontology, which is tailored for functional annotation of plant “omics” data. The classification procedure performs parallel sequence searches against reference databases, compiles the results, and computes the most likely MapMan BINs for each query. In the current version, the pipeline relies on manually curated reference classifications originating from the three reference organisms (Arabidopsis, Chlamydomonas, rice), various other plant species that have a reviewed SwissProt annotation, and more than 2000 protein domain and family profiles at InterPro, CDD and KOG. Functional annotations predicted by Mercator achieve accuracies above 90% when benchmarked against manual annotation. In addition to mapping files for direct use in the visualization software MapMan, Mercator provides graphical overview charts, detailed annotation information in a convenient web browser interface and a MapMan-to-GO translation Table to export results as GO terms. Mercator is available free of charge via http://mapman.gabipd.org/web/guest/app/Mercator. [less ▲]

The extraction of high-resolution, Digital Elevation Models (DEM) from very high-resolution (VHR) optical satellite imagery, as well as low altitude drone images by Photogrammetric methods or modern Structure from Motion (SFM) engines, has rapidly matured. Today both data sources are representing cost-effective alternatives to dedicated airborne sensors, especially for remote and difficult to access regions. Ever-growing archives of high-resolution Satellite imagery, are providing a rich data source which covers even the most remote locations with high-resolution imagery up to 0.30m ground sample distance multiple times enabling the generation of high-resolution DEMS. Furthermore, low-cost, low weight and easy to use drones can easily be deployed in remote regions and capture limited areas with very high resolution. Dense point clouds derived from this method provide an invaluable data source to fill the gap between globally available low-resolution DEMs and highly accurate terrestrial surveys. The presented case study investigates the use of VHR archive imagery as well as low-cost drone imagery to generate high-quality DEMs using photogrammetric tools over a remote region which is difficult to access by manned airborne platforms. We highlight the potential and limitations of both data sources to provide high resolution, accurate elevation data. [less ▲]

In this paper we consider the extension of non-monotonic preference logic with the distinction between controllable(or endogenous) and uncontrollable(or exogenous)variables, which can be used for example in agent decision making and deliberation. We assume that the agent is optimistic about its owncontrollables and pessimistic about its uncontrollables, and we study ways to merge these two distinct dimensions.We also consider complex preferences, such as optimistic preferences conditional on an uncontrollable, or optimistic preferences conditional on a pessimistic preference.

In this paper we generalize and merge two models of roles used in multiagent systems which address complementary aspects: enacting roles and communication among roles in an organization or institution. We do this by proposing a metamodel of roles and specializing the metamodel to two existing models. We show how the two approaches can be integrated since they deal with complementary aspects: Boella [1] focuses on roles as a way to specify interactions among agents, and, thus, it emphasizes the public character of roles. [2] focuses instead on how roles are played, and thus it emphasizes the private aspects of roles: how the beliefs and goals of the roles become the beliefs and goals of the agents. The former approach focuses on the dynamics of roles in function of the communication process. The latter focuses on agents internal dynamics when they start playing a role or shift the role they are currently playing. [less ▲]

In this paper we study a society in which individuals gain utility from income and from social approbation. Income is correlated with class. Approbation is given to an unobservable trait, which must be signalled through the agent’s social mobility, i.e. class change. Mobility is driven by a simple mechanism involving inheritance, effort and ability. Thus social structure (class composition) is affected by individuals’ quest for approbation, and we study how that affects the emergence and multiplicity of long run social organizations, including hybrid forms of dynasties and meritocracies. Specifically we observe that even though social mobility is driven purely by a meritocratic mechanism, pure dynasties can emerge. We then introduce a feedback between the size of the upper class and its income value, so that effort levels and social structure are jointly endogenous. We derive results on equilibrium effort levels and stationary (when they exist) social structures. Social organization can converge to a unique steady state, multiple long run equilibria or cycles.

Die Akzeptanz sozialer Ungleichheit durch die Bevölkerung trägt zur gesellschaftlichen Stabilität bei. In westlichen Gesellschaften wird dabei dem meritokratischen Legitimationsprinzip eine besondere Bedeutung beigemessen. Hinter dem meritokratischen Prinzip steht die Vorstellung, dass Positionen und Belohnungen nur nach Leistung und nicht nach askriptiven Faktoren wie Geschlecht oder Elternhaus vergeben werden. Ziel dieser Studie, deren theoretische Grundlagen sowohl in der Ungleichheitsforschung als auch in der soziologischen Gerechtigkeitsforschung zu verorten sind, ist die Betrachtung der Entwicklung der Akzeptanz sozialer Ungleichheit in Westdeutschland im Zuge der Bildungsexpansion. Zur Beziehung zwischen Bildung und Akzeptanz sozialer Ungleichheit werden zunächst zwei konträre Thesen aufgestellt: Einerseits sollten höher Gebildete infolge erweiterter kognitiver Fähigkeiten kritischer gegenüber sozialer Ungleichheit sein, andererseits ist zu erwarten, dass höher Gebildete – die mit größerer Wahrscheinlichkeit zu den privilegierten Sozialschichten gehören – aufgrund eigener positiver Erfahrungen mit der Ordnung sozialer Ungleichheit diese stärker akzeptieren. Im Zentrum der empirischen Untersuchung stehen Analysen zu zeitlichen Entwicklungen unter simultaner Berücksichtigung von Kohorten-, Perioden- und Alterseffekten. [less ▲]
