Using next-generation sequencing technology alone, we have successfully generated and assembled a draft sequence of the giant panda genome. The assembled contigs (2.25 gigabases (Gb)) cover approximately 94% of the whole genome, and the remaining gaps (0.05 Gb) seem to contain carnivore-specific repeats and tandem repeats. Comparisons with the dog and human(More)
In this paper, we proposed two types of spiral microrobot that can move in human organs such like intestines, even blood vessels as an assumption has a great potential application for microsurgery. We begin with a mechanical study of the fish-like microrobot made by magnetic actuator. And then, based on the previous researches, the structures of the(More)
Software metrics is one of the most active research areas of software engineering. In this paper, a process model for software process metrics is proposed, which defines the roles, activities and related supporting tools and methods for the implementation of software process metrics, and gives an emphasis on the description of the goals, tasks and methods(More)
In this paper, an Electoral Cooperative Particle Swarm Optimization (ECPSO) based on several sub-swarms is presented to solving the Permutation Flow Shop Scheduling Problem (PFSSP). In the proposed algorithm, several strategies are employed to avoid falling into local optimum, improve the diversity and achieve better solution. Firstly, a electoral swarm is(More)
Successful conservation of an endangered species relies on a good understanding of its reproductive biology, but there are large knowledge gaps. For example, many questions remain unanswered with regard to gestation and fetal development in the giant panda. We take advantage of a sample size that is unprecedented for this species (n=13) to explore patterns(More)
Web service evaluation is one of the key problems in web service discovery and selection research fields. In this paper, we propose an approach to evaluate the web service performance. Different from traditional evaluation methods, our approach is based on users experience, and we apply the idea and result in common webs evaluation fields to help construct(More)
[Purpose] The purpose of this this study was to examine the immediate effects of intervention of proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation (PNF), neuromuscular joint facilitation (NJF) and NJF+pelvic floor muscle (PFM) exercise. [Subjects] Thirteen young people (5 males, 8 females) who had chronic low back pain on one side for more than 6 months. [Methods](More)
In this paper, a novel method of measuring the interface of multiplayer material (for example, between the two kinds of liquid) based on machine vision is proposed. The interface information is firstly transformed into two-dimension image by imaging device. Then boundary between materials is detected by edge detection method. Because there is very low gray(More)
