FTO harbours the strongest known obesity-susceptibility locus in Europeans. While there is growing evidence for a role for FTO in obesity risk in Asians, its association with type 2 diabetes, independently of BMI, remains inconsistent. To test whether there is an association of the FTO locus with obesity and type 2 diabetes, we conducted a meta-analysis of(More)

Peer-to-peer computing, the harnessing of idle compute cycles throughout the Internet, offers exciting new research challenges in the converging domains of networking and distributed computing. Our system, Cluster Computing on the Fly, seeks to harvest cycles from ordinary users in an open access, non-institutional environment. We conduct a comprehensive(More)
This paper presents a fast wavelet collocation method (FWCM) for high- speed circuit simulation. The FWCM has the following properties: (1) It works in the time domain, so that the circuit nonlinearity can be handled, and the accuracy of the result can be well controlled, unlike the method working in the frequency domain where the numerical error may get(More)
Buffer insertion is an effective approach to achieve both minimal clock sigual delay and skew in high speed VLSI circuit design. In this paper, we develop an optimal buffer insertion and sizing scheme. Particularly, due to the btier to buffer delay is a convex fimction of buffer positions in a clock tree, we show that the minimal clock delay can be obtaiued(More)
A printed monopole ultra wideband (UWB) antenna with frequency band-notched characteristics is proposed and investigated. The antenna consists of a half-disk shaped structure combined with an inverted isosceles trapezoid structure. To achieve the frequency band notched characteristics, an open-ended thin slit with a length of about one quarter guided(More)
This paper presents an analysis of a commercial 802.11n MIMO 2x3 dual band (2.4 & 5 GHz) system focusing on the operational throughput performance over an indoor environment with Line of Sight and Non Line of Sight scenarios. Although many authors have provided evidence on the effectiveness of this technology in field strength distribution, throughput or(More)
In this paper, we derive a formula for running the clock signal in a pipeline fashion to meet the GHz frequency challenge. Moreover we present an optimal algorithm for simultaneous balanced planar tree routing and optimal buffer insertion to reach the GHz limit. To ensure the signal integrity, we have developed a very efficient transmission line based(More)
