WrightEagle 2D soccer simulation team is a 2D soccer simulation team which has been participating in annual RoboCup competitions since 1999 and won 3 champions and 4 runners-up in the past 7 years. In this paper, we briefly present our current research efforts and some newly introduced techniques since the last competition.
Glycosylation in liver is one of the most biologically important protein modifications. It plays critical roles in many physiological and pathological processes by virtue of its unique location at the blood-tissue interface, including angiogenesis, liver cancer, cirrhosis, and fibrosis. To analyze glycosylation of plasma membrane proteins in liver… (More)
This paper introduces the concept of participatory risk management (PRM). By involving community members and netizens in the risk management process we believe the community will become safer and participants will become smarter in dealing with risks. A PRM gaming system concept for incentivizing community risk management through rewarding play is presented… (More)
Nasal olfactory mucosa mesenchymal stem cells (OM-MSCs) have the ability to promote regeneration in the nervous system in vivo. Moreover, with view to the potential for clinical application, OM-MSCs have the advantage of being easily accessible from patients and transplantable in an autologous manner, thus eliminating immune rejection and contentious… (More)
Lectin receptor-like kinases (LecRKs) are a class of membrane proteins found in higher plants. They play important roles in defense against of pathogens, perception of insect feeding, and stress tolerance. LecRK-VII.1 (AT4G04960) is one member of the LecRK family, which contains a conserved lectin domain and a kinase domain. In this study, the lecrk-VII.1… (More)
We describe a scientific casual browser game called Link<sub>IT</sub> for eliciting societal risk perceptions in the form of mental models represented as influence diagrams. Given this knowledge, we can highlight similarities and differences across demographic groups as well as compare individual responses with expert models. These comparisons inform how… (More)
