Orthogonal netted radar systems (ONRS) can fundamentally improve radar performance by using a group of specially designed orthogonal signals. A novel hybrid algorithm is proposed to numerically optimize such orthogonal polyphase code sets. The proposed algorithm integrates a statistical simulated annealing algorithm with the traditional iterative code… (More)
Sensor-embedded radio frequency identification (SE-RFID) is introduced to enhance the sensing functions of the current RFID systems. Two innovative architectures for SE-RFID systems are proposed and analyzed; the preliminary simulation of the proposed SE-RFID systems based on EDA software has been conducted successfully. An effort to design, simulate and… (More)
Fluorine is the thirteenth most abundant element in the earth's crust, but fluoride concentrations in surface water are low and fluorinated metabolites are extremely rare. The fluoride ion is a potent nucleophile in its desolvated state, but is tightly hydrated in water and effectively inert. Low availability and a lack of chemical reactivity have largely… (More)
― Disulfide connectivity prediction from one chain of protein helps determine protein tertiary structure. The more accuracy of prediction it reaches the more precise three dimensional structures we can obtain through computational methods. Previous methods only use local sequence or secondary structure information or global sequence information or… (More)
A novel method is proposed to design discrete frequency-coding waveforms (DFCWs) for the netted radar systems. Some of the designed results are presented and they indicate that the proposed algorithm is effective for the DFCW design.
Orthogonal Netted Radar System (ONRS) is proposed to significantly improve radar performances by using a group of specially designed coding waveforms. The principle of ONRS is described. The possible approaches to design the coding waveforms for ONRS are introduced and some design results are presented.
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the diagnostic value of circulating miR-765 and miR-149 as noninvasive early biomarkers for geriatric coronary artery disease (CAD) patients. A total of 69 angiographically documented CAD patients including 37 stable CAD (72.9 ± 4.2 years) and 32 unstable CAD (72.03 ± 4.3 years) and 20 healthy subjects (71.7 ± 5.2… (More)
A new actinomycete strain Micromonospora sp. K310 was isolated from Ghanaian mangrove river sediment. Spectroscopy-guided fractionation led to the isolation of two new compounds from the fermentation culture. One of the compounds is butremycin (2) which is the (3-hydroxyl) derivative of the known Streptomyces metabolite ikarugamycin (1) and the other… (More)
With binary coding waveform as radar pulse compression signal, the sidelobe of the matched processing result of the received signals is a serious interference to the effective detection of multiple targets. In this paper, the CLEAN algorithms are introduced to eliminate such sidelobes and significantly improve the target detection performance of binary… (More)
OBJECTIVE Circulating microRNAs have been recognized as promising biomarkers for various diseases. The present study aimed to explore the potential roles of circulating miR-149, miR-424 and miR-765 as non-invasive biomarkers for the diagnosis of coronary artery disease in middle-aged (40-60-year-old) patients. METHODS Sixty-five stable coronary artery… (More)
