Insertion/deletion (indel) is one of the most common methods of protein sequence variation. Recent studies showed that indels could affect their flanking regions and they are important for protein function and evolution. Here, we describe the Indel Flanking Region Database (IndelFR, http://indel.bioinfo.sdu.edu.cn), which provides sequence and structure(More)
With nonrelativistic QCD factorization, we present the first complete next-to-leading order study on the polarization of prompt J/ψ hadroproduction by including feeddown from χ(c)((3)P(J)(1),(3)S(1)(8)) and ψ(2s) which turn out to be very important parts. By using the color-octet long-distance matrix elements obtained from a combined fit of the measurements(More)
Based on the nonrelativistic QCD factorization scheme, we present the first complete next-to-leading-order study on the yield and polarization of Υ(1S,2S,3S) hadroproduction. By using the color-octet long-distance matrix elements obtained from fits of the experimental measurements on Υ yield and polarization at the Tevatron and LHC, our results can explain(More)
Heavy metal contamination in croplands has been a serious concern because of its high health risk through soil-food chain transfer. A field experiment was conducted in 2010-2012 in a contaminated rice paddy in southern China to determine if bioavailability of soil Cd and Pb could be reduced while grain yield was sustained over 3 years after a single soil(More)
A liquid chromatography-electrospray ionization-mass spectrometry (LC-ESI-MS) method for the determination of berberine in human plasma using chlorobenzylidine as the internal standard (IS) has been developed and validated. The plasma samples were prepared by LLE and the analytes were chromatographically separated on a Hanbon Lichrospher 5-C18 HPLC column(More)
The biogenic synthesis of metal nanomaterials offers an environmentally benign alternative to the traditional chemical synthesis routes. Colloidal silver (Ag) nanoparticles were synthesized by reacting aqueous AgNO(3) with Medicago sativa seed exudates under non-photomediated conditions. Upon contact, rapid reduction of Ag(+) ions was observed in <1 min(More)
Enabled to provide pervasive access to distributed resources in parallel ways, heterogeneous scheduling is extensively applied in large-scaled computing system for high performance. Conventional real-time scheduling algorithms, however, either disregard applications’ security needs and thus expose the applications to security threats or run applications at(More)
At present, energy-efficient scheduling algorithm in High-Performance Computing (HPC) environment is becoming a research hotspot owning to its high operation cost and low reliability. In this paper, we investigate energy-efficient scheduling algorithm of data dependent tasks in DVS-Unable cluster system. The proposed ESTD algorithm efficiently integrates(More)
The Backward Stochastic Differential Equation (BSDE) is a robust tool for financial derivatives pricing and risk management. In this paper, we explore the opportunity for parallel computing with BSDEs in financial engineering. A binomial tree based numerical method for BSDEs is investigated and applied to option pricing. According to the special structure(More)
