Scores of the performance scale of the Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale (WAIS) declined linearly with age from the 6th decade, whereas those of the verbal scale did not. This decrease in performance intelligence was thought to be related to an age-related frontal atrophy. The relationship between scores of the WAIS and changes in regional cortical gray… (More)
This paper describes a monitoring tool for grid computing, called visPerf. It is difficult to see the status of a working production grid system without a customized monitoring system. The status includes many details of the system such as system running information, performance changes, system/software failures, security issues and so forth. Most grid… (More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to estimate the prevalence and correlates of mental disorders in Korean adults. METHODS Door to door household surveys were conducted with community residents aged 18-74 years from July 19, 2011, to November 16, 2011 (n=6,022, response rate 78.7%). The sample was drawn from 12 catchment areas using a multistage cluster… (More)
Amycolatopsis orientalis is the producer of vancomycin, a glycopeptide antibiotic that is used for the treatment of serious infections with Gram-positive bacteria. Here we present the next-generation sequencing (NGS)-based 9.06-Mb draft genome sequence of the type strain Amycolatopsis orientalis subsp. orientalis KCTC 9412 (DSM 40040; ATCC 19795).
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the associations between weight status and mental disorders, including depressive disorder, anxiety disorder and alcohol use disorder. A total of nationally representative 6,510 subjects aged 18-64 yr was interviewed in face-to-face household survey. Response rate was 81.7%. Mental disorders were diagnosed using the… (More)
Distributed Object Systems are known to be very complex. Consequently it is very difficult, if not impossible, to see the overall relationship among participating objects in the system. That complicates the issues connected with performance tuning and maintenance. An economical way to visualize the system is clearly needed. In this paper, we propose a… (More)
In contrast with wild species, cultivated crop genomes consist of reshuffled recombination blocks, which occurred by crossing and selection processes. Accordingly, recombination block-based genomics analysis can be an effective approach for the screening of target loci for agricultural traits. We propose the variation block method, which is a three-step… (More)
