ANDY: A general, fault-tolerant tool for database searching oncomputer clusters

Description: Summary: ANDY (seArch coordination aND analYsis) is a set ofPerl programs and modules for distributing large biological databasesearches, and in general any sequence of commands, across the nodes of aLinux computer cluster. ANDY is compatible with several commonly usedDistributed Resource Management (DRM) systems, and it can be easilyextended to new DRMs. A distinctive feature of ANDY is the choice ofeither dedicated or fair-use operation: ANDY is almost as efficient assingle-purpose tools that require a dedicated cluster, but it runs on ageneral-purpose cluster along with any other jobs scheduled by a DRM.Other features include communication through named pipes for performance,flexible customizable routines for error-checking and summarizingresults, and multiple fault-tolerance mechanisms. Availability: ANDY isfreely available and may be obtained fromhttp://compbio.berkeley.edu/proj/andy; this site also containssupplemental data and figures and amore detailed overview of thesoftware.

Information Seeking Behavior of Crime Scene Investigators in the Turkish National Police

Description: This exploratory research is the first one among occupational information seeking behavior studies that focuses on information seeking behaviors of the crime scene investigators. The data used in this dissertation were gathered via a self-administrated survey instrument from 29 cities in Turkey. Findings obtained from the data analyses show that there is a strongly positive relationship between the experience of the crime scene investigators and the use of personal knowledge and experience as a primary information source (experience is operationalized with age, service years in policing, and service years in crime scene investigation units). The findings also suggest that increasing of the level of education is negatively related to relying on immediate colleagues as an information source among the crime scene investigators. These findings are consistent with related literature and theory. The data analysis shows that crime scene investigators work in cities with higher population rates have more complaint scores than those who work in cities with lower population rates across Turkey. The findings from the data analysis may suggest valuable implications to defeat the barriers between crime scene investigators and information sources. The researcher drew a proposed theoretical framework of an information behavior concept in the context of crime scene investigation that may help those who are interested in the phenomenon and its applications to other contexts.
