“If I have only two children and they die… who will take care of me?” –a qualitative study exploring knowledge, attitudes and practices about family planning among Mozambican female and male adults

PMCID: 5568310
PMID: 28830390
DOI: 10.1186/s12905-017-0419-6

[…] guish that I am out. She feels me on the top of her but she does not open completely her legs whereas I am ejaculate. I withdrawal and ejaculate out, it [sperm] does not prop through upon the vagina [Ngila, male, 44 years-old, IDI, Mahubo].Consistent practices occurred among participants who were not particularly interfered with by relatives such as their mother-in-laws. As well, being constrained […]


PICS Ord: unlimited coding of ambiguous regions by pairwise identity and cost scores ordination

BMC Bioinformatics
PMCID: 3024941
PMID: 21214904
DOI: 10.1186/1471-2105-12-10
call_split See protocol

[…] ve, we employed ARC [], which is a non-pairwise alignment method based on frequencies of bases and base patterns in each individual sequence.In addition to simple sequence identity and cost matrices, Ngila 1.3 was applied to find the most likely alignment between two homologous sequences and its log-likelihood score [,,]. Ngila finds optimal alignments between pairs of sequences using a substituti […]


Logarithmic gap costs decrease alignment accuracy

BMC Bioinformatics
PMCID: 1770940
PMID: 17147805
DOI: 10.1186/1471-2105-7-527
call_split See protocol

[…] []. Dawg recorded the actual alignment of each sequence pair making it possible to measure the accuracy of alignments generated through dynamic programming.Pairwise, global alignments were done with Ngila [], an implementation of the candidate-list dynamic programming algorithm of Miller and Myers [] for logarithmic and affine gap costs. Because gap costs are usually optimized for specific substi […]
