In wideband cognitive radio (CR) networks, spectrum sensing is an essential task for enabling dynamic spectrum sharing, but entails several major technical challenges: very high sampling rates required for wideband processing, limited power and computing resources per CR, frequency-selective wireless fading, and interference due to signal leakage from other(More)
Impulse Radio-UWB (IR-UWB) is actively being researched as a low cost wireless technology for Ultra Low Power (ULP), low data-rate, short-range wireless links in tagging [1], sensing and medical applications. In current solutions efficient timing acquisition as well as Narrow-Band Interference (NBI) rejection requires complex or large analog and digital(More)
This paper develops a distributed compressed spectrum sensing approach for cooperative wideband multi-hop cognitive radio (CR) networks where both primary users and CR users are active during the sensing stage. Due to the multi-hop nature, each CR needs to sense its individual spectral map that consists of both common spectral components from primary users(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS Loss of FAS and gain of aberrant FASL expression are common features of malignant transformation. This study was designed to investigate whether the functional polymorphisms of FAS-1377 G/A (rs2234767) and FASL-844 T/C (rs763110) have an effect on the occurrence and progression of gastric cardiac adenocarcinoma (GCA). METHODOLOGY(More)
Cold enzymatic hydrolysis conditions for bioethanol production were optimized using multi-objective optimization. Response surface methodology was used to optimize the effects of α-amylase, glucoamylase, liquefaction temperature and liquefaction time on S. cerevisiae biomass, ethanol concentration and starch utilization ratio. The optimum hydrolysis(More)
Current research on data stream classification mainly focuses on supervised learning, in which a fully labeled data stream is needed for training. However, fully labeled data streams are expensive to obtain, which make the supervised learning approach difficult to be applied to real-life applications. In this paper, we model applications, such as credit(More)
Recently, motion averaging has been introduced as an effective means to solve multi-view registration problem. This approach utilizes the Lie-algebras to implement the averaging of many relative motions, each of which corresponds to the registration result of the scan pair involved in multiview registration. Accordingly, a key question is how to obtain(More)
Anecdotes, both historical and recent, recount the curing of skin infections, including diaper rash, by using red soils from the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan. Following inoculation of red soils isolated from geographically separate areas of Jordan, Micrococcus luteus and Staphylococcus aureus were rapidly killed. Over the 3-week incubation period, the number(More)
UNLABELLED c-Myc (Myc) plays an important role in normal liver development and tumorigenesis. We show here that Myc is pathologically activated in and essential for promoting human hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). Myc induces HCC through a novel, microRNA (miRNA)-mediated feedback loop comprised of miR-148a-5p, miR-363-3p, and ubiquitin-specific protease 28(More)
UNLABELLED Mutagenic nucleoside analogues can be used to isolate RNA virus high-fidelity RNA-dependent RNA polymerase (RdRp) variants, the majority of which are attenuated in vivo. However, attenuated foot-and-mouth disease virus (FMDV) high-fidelity RdRp variants have not been isolated, and the correlations between RdRp fidelity and virulence remain(More)
