A fundamental problem with current Web search technology is that in the absence of any additional information, the same query provided by two different searchers will produce the same set of search results, even if the information needs of the searchers are different. Web search personalization has been proposed as a solution to this problem, whereby the(More)
Although static ranked lists remain the dominant Web search interface, they can limit the ability of Web searchers to find desired information when it is buried deep in the collection of search results. Web search visualization and Web search personalization are two active research directions that have shown promise for improving the user experience while(More)
Bacterial cell wall (CW) and extracellular (EC) proteins are often involved in interactions with extracellular matrix (ECM) proteins such as laminin (LN) and fibronectin (FN), which play important roles in adhesion and invasion. In this study, an efficient method combining proteomic analysis and Far-Western blotting assays was developed to screen directly(More)
Personalized Web search systems have been developed to tailor Web search to users’ needs based on their interests and preferences. A novel Normal Distribution Re-Weighting (NDRW) approach is proposed in this paper, which identifies and re-weights significant terms in vector-based personalization models in order to improve the personalization process.(More)
Streptococcus suis (SS) is an important bacterial zoonotic pathogen, which can cause infections in pigs and humans. However, the pathogenesis of this bacterium remains unclear, even though some putative virulence factors (VFs) have been reported. Comparative proteomics could be used to identify markers that can distinguish bacterial strains with different(More)
