Increasing computing power, networking capabilities, rapid developments in information and communication technologies have made digital technologies part of our lives and changed the dynamics in the society and in the business world. (Demirkan, Spohrer, & Welser, 2016; Svahn, Henfridsson, & Yoo, 2009). While presenting numerous...

Third generation sequencing machines produce reads with tens of thousands of base pairs.
To perform de novo assembly, all reads must be compared with every other read to find overlaps.
Finding overlaps with the optimal Smith-Waterman is not feasible, since the complexity of Smith-Waterman is quadratic with the length of the reads.

The seismic building structural type (SBST) reflects the main load-bearing structure of a building and therefore its behaviour under seismic load. For numerous areas in earthquake prone regions this information is outdated, unavailable, or simply not existent. Traditional methods to gather this information, such as building-by-building...

The circular economy is a hot topic and seen as the solution to the depletion of the earth. According to multiple researchers procurement is an important mean to stimulate circularity, thereby boosting the transition towards a circular economy. However, one thinks the Dutch procurement law is obstructing circular procurement, and one does not...

The growing DNA data volumes that originate from novel efficient DNA sequencing methods expose new challenges to computer systems used to process this genomic data. BigData technologies in the Hadoop environment, in particular Apache Spark and the Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS), are increasingly adapted in state-of-the-art Bioinformatic...

DNA can function as a significant part of evidence in forensic investigation, because it can link a potential perpetrator to a crime. Even by skin contact, micro-traces of DNA-containing material can be transferred. This type of DNA is called ‘trace DNA’. When DNA is collected from an evidentiary item for forensic purposes, the goal is to...

We start our introduction to DNA matching with the direct match case: we find DNA at a crime scene and find a direct match with a member of our database. To measure the strength of our case against the match, we use likelihoodratios. We differentiate between two different situations: the probable cause case, where we already suspect our match and...

This graduation assignment is about the design of a DNA based health service. The focus lays on the connection between the technology of DNA testing and the needs of the consumer. A situation analysis is carried out in order to understand the applicability of DNA, the consumer, the market and the competitors within this market. Based on this...

DNA has a number of characteristics which make it very promising as a hydrological tracer. It is detectable in extremely low quantities and can provide a virtually unlimited amount of unique tracers. The DNA tracer method has been further developed towards a multipurpose tracer combining a DNA tag, a paramagnetic core and a protective coating...

Combining DNA origami with solid-state nanopores has been gaining an increasing amount of attention due to its potential for biosensing applications. Accordingly, origami plate dockings onto conventional solid-state silicon nitride pores with membranes of ?20nm thick were previously studied. Here, we examine whether graphene, with its single...

The goal of this study was to dive into the novel techniques associated with the use of the available Third Generation DNA Sequencing (TGS) platform, PacBio. This 3-year old technology sounded promising right from the beginning but its groundbreaking attributes, like length and error content, required unconventional handling to yield worthwhile...

DNA sequencing is the process of determining the ordered sequence of the four nucleotide bases in a strand of DNA, for storage in an electronic medium. Since the mid-2000s, with the advent of “Next-Generation” sequencing technologies, the production rate of sequencing data has surpassed the rate with which hard disc prices are decreasing,...

Over the last decade, the costs of sequencing a human DNA molecule have been drastically reduced. It is therefore expected that the DNA sequence of patients will be used more often as a diagnostics tool in future clinical applications. However, DNA sequencers deliver millions of small fragments from random positions of the very large DNA string....

Due to advancing technology, genetic sequencing has become cheaper over the years. This has caused the demand for computational power to grow even faster than Moore's law. To remedy this problem, we analyzed low-cost hardware solutions to parallelize the computational part of the genetic sequencing. We proposed a novel method for calculating the...

Het sturen van DNA door een klein gaatje in een kunstmatig membraan biedt mogelijkheden voor het aflezen van een DNA streng. Tijdens dit proces beweegt de streng zich in een vloeistof, waardoor allerlei fysische effecten een rol gaan spelen. De krachten die op de streng werken zorgen ervoor dat de DNA streng zich van de ene kant van het membraan...

Motivation: Numerous genetic disorders can be detected in prenatal diagnosis using Chorionic Villus Sampling. As this brings a 1:100 chance for miscarriage, this method is only applied when the fetus is suspected to have an increased chance at having an aberration. It is known that a small percentage of DNA in maternal plasma is of fetal origin...

In forensic science it is common practice to work on problems where the likelihood ratio is based on observing single piece of evidence given two hypotheses. However, in a lot of cases, there is more than one piece of evidence. In this thesis three problems regarding combining DNA profiles are discussed. First, we derived a method to combine the...

Translocatie van een ketting met verschillende kraaltjes door een zeer kleine porie kan gebruikt worden als een eerste stap voor het modelleren van het transport van DNA door een membraan. Dit translocatieproces biedt een groot aantal kansen in chemische en biologische processen, zoals het snel kunnen afezen van DNA. Het translocatieproces wordt...

Y-haplotype profiling presents special advantages for forensic casework, paternity and population studies. Y-chromosome DNA is male-specific and can sometimes be detected in stains where autosomal DNA cannot. When a suspect in a criminal case has the same Y-haplotype as found in a crime stain, what is the evidential value of the match? In such...

Translocating a chain of different beads through a very small pore can be used as a first step of modelling a DNA chain that passes through a nanopore. This translocation process offers a variety of possibilities in chemical and biological processes, for instance rapid DNA sequencing. In this thesis the chain is modelled as a polymer with...
