Multiple types of SNPs as well as mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) were also indicated as target marker sets for MPS, although to a lesser degree than STRs by a median of 19 percent.
Selecting P300 of each subject as the highest peak within 150-450 ms on the target coherent averages (see Figure 6 green areas), all these magnitudes were contrasted with their nontarget analogues by a signed rank Wilcoxon test obtaining a statistical difference (W = 0.0; p < 0.001) which suggests that attending the target marker generates a different brain response.
After each shot in an F-Class match, the target marker in the pits places a sticker on the shot hole and another on the target perimeter to show the shot's value.
Figure 2 shows the process used to calculate the global coordinates of an example target marker, where the [x.sub.s]-[y.sub.s] coordinate system represents a moving coordinate system to indicate the movement of a micro X-Y stage and the [x.sub.c]-[y.sub.c] coordinate system indicates the location of the target markers in the captured CCD image.
Parallel alignment with the underground object is also confirmed visually with a laser target marker that is projected onto the ground.
