The prototype Norwalk virus (GI), has been shown to have high infectivity in a human challenge study. Whether other NoVs(More)
Previously titled: MetaGenSense: A web application for analysis and visualization of high throughput sequencing metagenomic data Abstract The detection and characterization of emerging infectious agents has been a continuing public health concern. High Throughput Sequencing (HTS) or Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS) technologies have proven to be promising(More)
This study assessed age-related changes in body composition (specifically in trunk fat and appendicular lean masses), with consideration of body mass index (BMI) at age 20 years (BMI reference age, "BMIref"), ethnicity and lifetime weight change history. A cross-sectional dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry-based dataset was extracted from the U.S. National(More)
