P2P lending, as a novel economic lending model, has imposed new challenges about how to make effective investment decisions. Indeed, a key challenge along this line is how to align the right information with the right people. For a long time, people have made tremendous efforts in establishing credit records for the borrowers. However, information from(More)
The aim of the present study was to investigate the genetic etiology of patients with nonsyndromic hearing impairment through gene analysis, and provide accurate genetic counseling and prenatal diagnosis for deaf patients and families with deaf children. Previous molecular etiological studies have demonstrated that the most common molecular changes in(More)
Recent years have witnessed increased attention on peer-to-peer (P2P) lending, which provides an alternative way of financing without the involvement of traditional financial institutions. A key challenge for personal investors in P2P lending marketplaces is the effective allocation of their money across different loans by accurately assessing the credit(More)
CHARGE syndrome is an autosomal-dominant disorder involved in multiple organs. Loss-of-function mutations in CHD7, a member of the chromodomain helicase DNA-binding (CHD) protein family, are known to cause the CHARGE syndrome. The purposes of this paper were to affirm the diagnosis and to identify the molecular basis of one atypical CHARGE syndrome patient(More)
OBJECTIVE To develop and validate a method for mutation screening and prenatal diagnosis of TSC1/TSC2 mutations among patients with tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC) by Ion Torrent semiconductor sequencing. METHODS Potential mutations of SC1/TSC2 gene was detected in 2 TSC families and 1 sporadic TSC patient using an Ion Torrent PGM sequencer. Candidate(More)
Here, we aimed to validate a noninvasive method using capture sequencing for prenatal diagnosis of congenital adrenal hyperplasia due to 21-Hydroxylase deficiency (21-OHD). Noninvasive prenatal diagnosis (NIPD) of 21-OHD was based on 14 plasma samples collected from 12 families, including four plasma sample collected during the first trimester. Targeted(More)
