Germline mutations in the two breast cancer susceptibility genes, BRCA1 and BRCA2 account for a significant portion of hereditary breast/ovarian cancer. De novo mutations such as multiple exon deletion are rarely occurred in BRCA1 and BRCA2. During our mutation screening for BRCA1/2 genes to Chinese women with risk factors for hereditary breast/ovarian(More)

This dissertation investigates various aspects of helimagnets. Helimagnets are magnets with spins aligned in helical order at low temperatures. It exists in materials of crystal structure lacking the spatial inversion symmetry. The helical order is due to the Dzyaloshinskii-Moriya (DM) mechanism. Examples of helimagnets include MnSi, FeGe and Fe 1−x Co x(More)
Interruptions have deleterious effects on people's performance on routine procedural tasks, leading to higher error rates. According to the activation-based goal memory (AGM) model, errors occur due to competition between memory representations. Research has shown that appropriate interventions can reduce the occurrence of such errors. An experiment,(More)
