Neighbor discovery is crucial for both wireless sensor networks and mobile computing applications. The crux of the problem is to achieve energy efficiency, which has been demonstrated to be difficult by prior work. In this paper we propose Hello, a generic flexible protocol for neighbor discovery. With an unrestricted parameter, it serves as a generic(More)
The identification of protein-protein interaction sites is a computationally challenging task and important for understanding the biology of protein complexes. There is a rich literature in this field. A broad class of approaches assign to each candidate residue a real-valued score that measures how likely it is that the residue belongs to the interface.(More)
Many wireless applications urgently demand an efficient neighbor discovery protocol to build up bridges connecting user themselves or to some service providers. However, due to intrinsic constraints of wireless devices, e.g., limited energy and error of clock synchronization, there is still absence of effective and efficient neighbor discovery protocols in(More)
The continual proliferation of mobile devices has stimulated the development of opportunistic encounter-based networking and has spurred a myriad of proximity-based mobile applications. A primary cornerstone of such applications is to discover neighboring devices effectively and efficiently. Despite extensive protocol optimization, current neighbor(More)
Respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) infection is a major cause of severe lower respiratory illness in infants and young children, but the underlying mechanisms responsible for viral pathogenesis have not been fully elucidated. To date, no drugs or vaccines have been employed to improve clinical outcomes for RSV-infected patients. In this paper, we report that(More)
An avian-origin influenza A (H7N9) virus was a cause for concern in China in the spring of 2013. Most H7N9 infections resulted in acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), which is a severe form of acute lung injury (ALI) that contributes to morbidity and mortality. In this study, we induced viral ALI by infecting wild-type and CCL2-deficient mice with(More)
Influenza A virus causes annual epidemics and occasional pandemics in humans. Here, we investigated four members of the fibroblast growth factor receptor (FGFR) family; FGFR1 to 4, and examined their expression patterns in human lung epithelial cells A549 with influenza A virus infection. We identified a functional role of FGFR1 in influenza A/Puerto(More)
The performance of wireless multi-hop mesh networks is negatively affected by interference between neighboring links which use the same channel. Even if no interflow interference exists, intra-flow interference still degrades network performance to a high degree. To overcome this problem this paper presents a routing protocol for wireless multi-hop networks(More)
