A map of protein-protein interactions provides valuable insight into the cellular function and machinery of a proteome. By measuring the similarity between two Gene Ontology (GO) terms with a relative specificity semantic relation, here, we proposed a new method of reconstructing a yeast protein-protein interaction map that is solely based on the GO(More)
—A high-throughput memory-efficient arithmetic coder architecture for the set partitioning in hierarchical trees (SPIHT) image compression is proposed based on a simple context model in this paper. The architecture benefits from various optimizations performed at different levels of arithmetic coding from higher algorithm abstraction to lower circuits'(More)
Myc proteins are known to have an important function in stem cell maintenance. As Myc has been shown earlier to regulate microRNAs (miRNAs) involved in proliferation, we sought to determine whether c-Myc also affects embryonic stem (ES) cell maintenance and differentiation through miRNAs. Using a quantitative primer-extension PCR assay we identified miRNAs,(More)
RNA interference (RNAi) has become an important technique for loss-of-gene-function studies in mammalian cells. To achieve reliable results in an RNAi experiment, efficient and specific silencing triggers are required. Here we present genome-wide data sets for the production of endoribonuclease-prepared short interfering RNAs (esiRNAs) for human, mouse and(More)
RNA interference technology allows the systematic genetic analysis of the molecular alterations in cancer cells and how these alterations affect response to therapies. Here we used small interfering RNA (siRNA) screens to identify genes that enhance the cytotoxicity (enhancers) of established anticancer chemotherapeutics. Hits identified in drug enhancer(More)
PURPOSE To examine the developmental relationship between adolescent substance use and risky sexual behavior in young adulthood. A gender-balanced, ethnically diverse urban sample of 808 children in Seattle was surveyed at age 10 years in 1985 and followed prospectively to age 21 years in 1996. Semiparametric group-based modeling was used to determine(More)
BACKGROUND Since proteins perform their functions by interacting with one another and with other biomolecules, reconstructing a map of the protein-protein interactions of a cell, experimentally or computationally, is an important first step toward understanding cellular function and machinery of a proteome. Solely derived from the Gene Ontology (GO), we(More)
—We present an efficient algorithm for retrieving the ocean-surface wind vector from C-band Radar Satellite RADARSAT-2 fully polarimetric synthetic aperture radar (SAR) measurements based upon the copolarized geophysical model The analysis of fine quad-polarization mode single-look complex SAR data and collocated in situ moored buoy observations reveals(More)
