Geometry compression is the coding of 3D geometric data in a form that requires less space to store and less bandwidth to transmit. Animated geometry compression is the compression of temporal sequences of geometric data. An octree-based motion representation method in which a small set of motion vectors are generated for each frame by analyzing the motion(More)

BACKGROUND Association studies have been employed to investigate the relationships between host single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) and susceptibility to pulmonary Tuberculosis (PTB). However, such candidate genetic markers have not been widely studied in Chinese population, especially with respect to the disease development from latent M. tuberculosis(More)
As an important long noncoding RNA, Hox transcript antisense intergenic RNA (HOTAIR) is involved in the development and progression of various carcinomas. However, the role and genetic alterations of HOTAIR in gastric cardia adenocarcinoma (GCA) occurrence and progression have not been elucidated. We performed a case-control study in a population of north(More)
Using animated visualization tools has been an important teaching approach in computer science education. We have developed three visualization and animation tools that demonstrate various information security concepts and actively engage learners. The information security concepts illustrated include: packet sniffer and related computer network concepts,(More)
We develop a model to predict the performance of synchronous discrete event simulation. Our model considers the two most important factors for the performance of synchronous simulation: load balancing and communication. The effect of load balancing in a synchronous simulation is computed using probability distribution models. We derive a formula that(More)
Wikipedia, a User Innovation Community (UIC), is becoming increasingly influential source of knowledge. The knowledge in Wikipedia is produced and processed collaboratively by UIC. The results of this collaboration process present various seemingly complex patterns demonstrated by update history of different articles in Wikipedia. Agent simulation is a(More)
Computer visualization and animation have been used in computer science education to help students better understand the concepts. This paper presents an animated simulator for packet sniffer and its use in a network security course. The animated packet sniffer simulator was designed to demonstrate graphically the security concept packet sniffer and related(More)
Hepatitis B virus (HBV) DNA is prone to mutations because of the proofreading deficiencies of HBV polymerase. The postoperative prognostic value of HBV mutations in HBV X protein (HBx) gene was assessed in HBV associated hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) patients. The HBx gene was amplified and sequenced, the HBV mutations was identified according to NCBI(More)
