Orderly spanning trees with applications to graph encoding and graph drawing
We give a linear-time algorithm that obtains an orderly pair (<i>H</i>,<i>T</i>) of connected planar graphs that yields the best known encoding of <i>G</i> with query support, and the first area-optimal 2-visibility drawing of the graph. Expand

Inhibition of allergen-induced airway inflammation and hyperreactivity by recombinant lactic-acid bacteria.
Recombinant lactic-acid bacteria (LAB) are able to inhibit allergen-specific T-cell responses. In this study, we examined whether oral feeding of recombinant LAB was able to suppress allergen-inducedExpand
