|Abstract||We study the interval constrained coloring problem, a combinatorial problem arising in the interpretation of data on protein structure emanating from experiments based on hydrogen/deuterium exchange and mass spectrometry. The problem captures the challenging task of increasing the spatial resolution of experimental data in order to get a better picture of the protein structure. Since solutions proposed by any algorithmic framework have to ultimately be verified by biochemists, it is important to provide not just a single solution, but a valuable set of candidate solutions. Our contribution is a polynomial-delay, polynomial-space algorithm for enumerating all exact solutions plus further approximate solutions, which are guaranteed to be within an absolute error of two of the optimum within fragments of the protein, that is, within sets of consecutive residues. Our experiments indicate that the quality of the approximate solutions is comparable to the optimal ones in terms of deviation from the underlying true solution. In addition, the experiments also confirm the effectiveness of the method in reducing the delay between two consecutive solutions considerably, compared to what it takes an integer programming solver to produce the next exact solution.|

Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) under its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT) has initiated the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project to develop a framework of virtual repository of learning resources with a single-window search facility. Filtered and federated searching is employed to facilitate focused searching so that learners can find out the right resource with least effort and in minimum time. NDLI is designed to hold content of any language and provides interface support for leading vernacular languages, (currently Hindi, Bengali and several other languages are available). It is designed to provide support for all academic levels including researchers and life-long learners, all disciplines, all popular forms of access devices and differently-abled learners. It is being developed to help students to prepare for entrance and competitive examinations, to enable people to learn and prepare from best practices from all over the world and to facilitate researchers to perform inter-linked exploration from multiple sources. It is being developed at Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur.
NDLI is a conglomeration of freely available or institutionally contributed or donated or publisher managed contents. Almost all these contents are hosted and accessed from respective sources. The responsibility for authenticity, relevance, completeness, accuracy, reliability and suitability of these contents rests with the respective organization and NDLI has no responsibility or liability for these. Every effort is made to keep the NDLI portal up and running smoothly unless there are some unavoidable technical issues.
Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT), has sponsored and funded the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project.
