Cyclooxygenase (COX) catalyzes the conversion of arachidonic acid (ARA) to prostaglandins, and COX-mediated metabolites play important roles in the regulation of lipid metabolism and immunity in mammals. However, such roles of COX in fish remain largely unknown. In this study, we designed three semi-purified diets, namely ARA-free (control), ARA, and ARA +(More)
Mining the frequent item sets is the core of algorithm for mining association rules. Therefore, to improve the efficiency of discovering the frequent item sets is a key issue in data mining area. In this paper, an algorithm for acquiring the frequent item sets, which is based on the set operations of item-transaction list, is put forward. It turns out to(More)
