MOVING PICTURE CODING METHOD, AND MOVING PICTURE DECODING METHOD

Pub Date: 2015-04-23

Pub Number: US20150110188

A moving picture coding apparatus for performing inter-picture predictive coding for pictures constituting a moving picture is provided with a coding unit for performing predictive error coding for image data; a decoding unit for performing predictive error decoding for an output from the coding unit; a reference picture memory for holding output data from the decoding unit; and a motion vector detection unit for detecting motion vectors on the basis of the decoded image data stored in the memory. When coding a B picture as a target picture, information indicating whether or not the target picture should be used as a reference picture when coding another picture is added as header information. Therefore, in a decoding apparatus for decoding a bit stream Bs outputted from the moving picture coding apparatus, management of a memory for holding the reference picture can be facilitated on the basis of the header information.

METHODS FOR ASSESSING A GENOMIC REGION OF A SUBJECT

Pub Date: 2015-04-23

Pub Number: US20150111208

The invention generally relates to method for assessing a genomic region of a subject. In certain embodiments, methods of the invention involve obtaining a sample including nucleic acid from a subject. The nucleic acid includes a target sequence from a target genomic region and a paralogous sequence from a non-target genomic region.
