In this paper, we present a novel PCR method, termed SiteFinding-PCR, for gene or chromosome walking. The PCR was primed by a SiteFinder at a low temperature, and then the target molecules were amplified exponentially with gene-specific and SiteFinder primers, and screened out by another gene-specific primer and a vector primer. However, non-target(More)
In this paper, a blind OFDM system parameters estimation method for software defined radio (SDR) is proposed. This method sequentially estimate the sampling frequency, the number of subcarriers, the CP length as well as the timing and frequency offset in OFDM systems. The blind estimation is based on a combination of the cyclostationarity test and(More)
OBJECTIVE Candidate gene association studies and genome-wide association studies (GWAs) have identified a large number of single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) loci affecting susceptibility to rheumatoid arthritis (RA). However, for the same locus, some studies have yielded inconsistent results. To assess all the available evidence for association, we(More)
PURPOSE Human papillomavirus (HPV) as a risk factor for esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC) has previously been studied, but importance of HPV status in ESCC for prognosis is less clear. METHODS A total of 105 specimens with ESCC were tested by in situ hybridization for HPV 16/18 and immunohistochemistry for p16 expression. The 5-year overall(More)
—Cyclostationarity is a significant feature of numerous physical and man-made processes. Specially in wireless communications, it has been explored and applied for many processing, like timing and frequency synchronization, channel estimation, and modulation classification. In this paper, we notice that the second order time varying auto-correlation of the(More)
Demographic events such as migration, and evolutionary events like mutation and recombination, have contributed to the genetic variations that are found in the human genome. During the evolution and differentiation of human populations, different functional genes and pathways (a group of genes that act together to perform specific biological tasks) would(More)
