—In wireless sensor networks (WSNs), nodes closer to the sink node have heavier traffic load for packet forwarding. The unbalanced power consumption among sensor nodes may cause network partition. This paper proposes efficient node placement and topology control protocols to balance the power consumption of sensor nodes. Firstly, a virtual tree topology is(More)
Global transcriptome investigations often result in the detection of an enormous number of transcripts composed of non-co-linear sequence fragments. Such 'aberrant' transcript products may arise from post-transcriptional events or genetic rearrangements, or may otherwise be false positives (sequencing/alignment errors or in vitro artifacts). Moreover,(More)
This paper considers a mobile WSN that contains a big hole but there exists no redundant mobile sensor to heal the hole. To achieve the temporal full-coverage purpose or enhance the tracking quality, three distributed algorithms are proposed for moving the existing big coverage hole to a predefined location. Firstly, the sink chooses a promising direction(More)
Early human embryonic stem cell (hESC)-derived neural populations consist of various embryonic neural progenitors (ENPs) with broad neural developmental propensity. Here, we sought to directly convert human somatic cells into ENP-like phenotypes using hESC-ENP-enriched neural transcription factors (TFs). We demonstrated that induced ENP could be efficiently(More)
Deployment of the nodes in a wireless sensor network to satisfy continuous sensing with extended network lifetime while maintaining uniform coverage in the deployment region is the major challenge in wireless sensor networks. Various architectures and node deployment strategies have been developed for wireless sensor network, depending upon the requirement(More)
—This paper considers a mobile WSN that contains a big hole. To achieve the full coverage purpose or enhance the tracking quality, three distributed algorithms are proposed for moving the existing big coverage hole to a predefined location. Firstly, the sink chooses a promising direction for hole movement. Then the Basic, Forward-only and Any-Direction(More)
