Mycobacterium tuberculosis is one of most prevalent pathogens in the world. Drug-resistant strains of this pathogen caused by the excessive use of antibiotics have long posed serious threats to public health worldwide. A broader picture of drug resistance mechanisms at the genomic level can be obtained only with large-scale comparative genomic methodology.(More)
A Bayesian network (BN) model was developed to predict susceptibility to PWD(Pine Wilt Disease). The distribution of PWD was identified using QuickBird and unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) images taken at different times. Seven factors that influence the distribution of PWD were extracted from the QuickBird images and were used as the independent variables.(More)
The loess plateau in China has faced severe soil erosion and runoff. Check-dams are effective measures for soil and water conservation; concomitantly check-dam planning and construction urgently require current land use maps. Remote sensing technique plays a key role in achieving up-to-date land use maps. However, limited by the impact of hilly and gully(More)
BACKGROUND Mycobacterium avium is frequently isolated from clinical samples, while the bacteriological features of M. avium clinical isolates from China have never been well defined. METHODS A total of 50 M. avium isolates were recruited from two tertiary tuberculosis designated hospitals, one located in Beijing whereas another in Fujian Province, which(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the performance of three interferon-gamma release assay (IGRA) kits in detecting Mycobacterium tuberculosis infection in China. METHODS A multicenter clinical trial was used to compare the effectiveness and application of the three kits. A total of 1026 participants were enrolled at three hospitals, including 597 tuberculosis (TB)(More)
Pulmonary diseases caused by nontuberculous mycobacteria (NTM) are increasing in incidence and prevalence worldwide. In this study, we identified NTM species of the clinical isolates from 8 provinces in China, in order to preliminarily provide some basic scientific data in the different species and distribution of NTM related to pulmonary disease in China.(More)
3D visualization and virtual reality are increasingly important in geographic information science and play a wide role in applications of geographic information technology to the public including managers, policy analysts, geography teachers, children and many other niche groups . Up to now, Google Earth has been downloaded about 200 million times, and has(More)
