In this paper we propose a new method called redundant class-dependence feature analysis (CFA) based on the advanced correlation filters to perform robust face recognition on the Face Recognition Grand Challenge (FRGC) data set. The FRGC contains a large corpus of data and a set of challenge problems. The data is divided into training and validation(More)
Biometric recognition refers to the process of matching an input biometric to stored biometric information. In particular, biometric verification refers to matching the live biometric input from an individual to the stored biometric template about that individual. Examples of biometrics include face images, fingerprint images, iris images, retinal scans,(More)
Streptococcus suis serotype 2 (SS2) is a porcine and human pathogen with adhesive and invasive properties. The absence of suitable vaccine or virulent marker can be the bottleneck to control SS2 infection. An immunoproteome-based approach was developed to identify candidate antigens of SS2 for vaccine development. Hyperimmune sera, convalescent sera, and(More)
The present review focuses on the physiological functions of glutamate–glutamine exchange involving placental amino acid transport and umbilical amino acid uptake in mammals (particularly in sows), with special emphasis on the associated regulating mechanisms. Glutamate plus glutamine are among the most abundant and the most utilized amino acids in fetus(More)
A novel member of the human ppGalNAc-T family, ppGalNAc-T20, was identified and characterized. Amino acid alignment revealed a high sequence identity between ppGalNAc-T20 and -T10. In the GalNAc transfer assay towards mucin-derived peptide substrates, the recombinant ppGalNAc-T20 demonstrated to be a typical glycopeptide GalNAc-transferase that exhibits(More)
Using biometrics for subject verification can significantly improve security over that of approaches based on passwords and personal identification numbers, both of which people tend to lose or forget. In biometric verification the system tries to match an input biometric (such as a fingerprint, face image, or iris image) to a stored biometric template.(More)
