Localizing a bug in a program can be a complex and time- consuming process. In this paper we propose a code coverage-based fault localization method to prioritize suspicious code in terms of its likelihood of containing program bugs. Code with a higher risk should be examined before that with a lower risk, as the former is more suspicious (i.e., more likely(More)
Due to the high sensor failure probability in WSN, there will be some "holes" in the sensor network which block the routing. The void problem hasn't been handled well in current real-time routing protocols. In this paper, we present a novel fault-tolerant real-time routing protocol FT-SPEED. In FT- SPEED, void announces scheme is proposed to prevent the(More)
To explore the clinical significance of seven diabetes-related serum microRNAs (miR-9, miR-29a, miR-30d, miR34a, miR-124a, miR146a and miR375) during the pathogenesis of type 2 diabetes (T2D), 56 subjects were recruited to this study: 18 cases of newly diagnosed T2D (n-T2D) patients, 19 cases of pre-diabetes individuals (impaired glucose tolerance [IGT](More)
Verification of candidate biomarkers relies upon specific, quantitative assays optimized for selective detection of target proteins, and is increasingly viewed as a critical step in the discovery pipeline that bridges unbiased biomarker discovery to preclinical validation. Although individual laboratories have demonstrated that multiple reaction monitoring(More)
The optimal tradeoff between diversity gain and multiplexing gain for multiple-inputmultiple-output (MIMO) channels has been studied recently under the independent and identically distributed (i.i.d.) Rayleigh-fading assumption. In this correspondence, this result is extended and the optimal tradeoff performance is derived for generalized fading channel(More)
In vivo and post-mortem studies have demonstrated that increased nigral iron content in patients with Parkinson's disease is a prominent pathophysiological feature. However, the mechanism and risk factors associated with nigral iron deposition in patients with Parkinson's disease have not been identified and represent a key challenge in understanding its(More)
Both Bacteria and Archaea might be involved in various biogeochemical processes in lacustrine sediment ecosystems. However, the factors governing the intra-lake distribution of sediment bacterial and archaeal communities in various freshwater lakes remain unclear. The present study investigated the sediment bacterial and archaeal communities in 13(More)
Fault localization is the most expensive activity in program debugging. Traditional ad-hoc methods can be time-consuming and ineffective because they rely on programmers' intuitive guesswork, which may neither be accurate nor reliable. A better solution is to utilize a systematic and statistically well-defined method to automatically identify suspicious(More)
To establish a “stepwise metastatic human hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) cell model system” for in-depth study of the underlying mechanisms of HCC metastasis. Using MHCC97— a metastatic human hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) cell line reported in 1999—as the parent cells, we subsequently established three cell lines (MHCC97-L, HMCC97-H, and HCCLM3) with(More)
The complete mitochondrial genome (mitogenome) of the fall webworm, Hyphantria cunea (Lepidoptera: Arctiidae) was determined. The genome is a circular molecule 15 481 bp long. It presents a typical gene organization and order for completely sequenced lepidopteran mitogenomes, but differs from the insect ancestral type for the placement of tRNA(Met). The(More)
