Affinity propagation clustering (AP) has two limitations: it is hard to know what value of parameter 'preference' can yield an optimal clustering solution, and oscillations cannot be eliminated automatically if occur. The adaptive AP method is proposed to overcome these limitations, including adaptive scanning of preferences to search space of the number of(More)
Evaluation of clustering results (or cluster validation) is an important and necessary step in cluster analysis, but it is often time-consuming and complicated work. We present a visual cluster validation tool, the Cluster Validity Analysis Platform (CVAP), to facilitate cluster validation. The CVAP provides necessary methods (e.g., many validity indices,(More)
The estimation of the number of clusters (NC) is one of crucial problems in the cluster analysis of gene expression data. Most approaches available give their answers without the intuitive information about separable degrees between clusters. However, this information is useful for understanding cluster structures. To provide this information, we propose(More)
OBJECTIVES This study sought to compare health status and quality-of-life outcomes for patients with severe aortic stenosis (AS) and high surgical risk treated with either transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) or surgical aortic valve replacement (AVR). BACKGROUND For high-risk patients with severe AS, TAVR has been shown to result in similar(More)
PURPOSE To understand the underlying molecular mechanism for a dominant cataract caused by a point mutation in the gammaD-crystallin gene. METHODS A dominant cataractous mouse line was identified from chemically induced mouse mutations by phenotypic screening with slit lamp examination. Genomewide linkage analysis and DNA sequencing were used to determine(More)
PURPOSE The goal of this study was to investigate whether superposing of electromagnetic noise could block or attenuate DNA damage and intracellular reactive oxygen species (ROS) increase of cultured human lens epithelial cells (HLECs) induced by acute exposure to 1.8 GHz radiofrequency field (RF) of the Global System for Mobile Communications (GSM).
