Because of the randomness of biometric features, traditional methods cannot perform well in the encryp-tion of fingerprint template. The Fuzzy Vault construct is a biometric cryptosystem which can bind the fingerprint features with the secret key, and give reliable protection to both of them. The performance of Fuzzy Vault is highly affected by the(More)
Recent studies on neuron imaging show that there is a strong relationship between the functional properties of a neuron and its morphology, especially its dendritic spine structures. However, most of the current methods for morphological spine classification only concern features in two-dimensional (2D) space, which consequently decreases the accuracy of(More)
Myxococcus xanthus cells self-organize into periodic bands of traveling waves, termed ripples, during multicellular fruiting body development and predation on other bacteria. To investigate the mechanistic basis of rippling behavior and its physiological role during predation by this Gram-negative soil bacterium, we have used an approach that combines(More)
A dendritic spine is a small membranous protrusion from a neuron's dendrite that typically receives input from a single synapse of an axon. Recent research shows that the morphological changes of dendritic spines have a close relationship with some specific diseases. The distribution of different dendritic spine phenotypes is a key indicator of such(More)
Multiple lines of evidence indicate a strong relationship between Αβ peptide-induced neurite degeneration and the progressive loss of cognitive functions in Alzheimer disease (AD) patients and in AD animal models. This prompted us to develop a high content screening assay (HCS) and Neurite Image Quantitator (NeuriteIQ) software to quantify the loss of(More)
Nasopharyngeal carcinoma is one of the malignant neoplasm with high incidence in China and south-east Asia. Ki-67 protein is strictly associated with cell proliferation and malignant degree. Cells with higher Ki-67 expression are always sensitive to chemotherapy and radiotherapy, the assessment of which is beneficial to NPC treatment. It is still(More)
The detection of tumor cells is critical for early diagnosis of primary and metastatic tumor as well as for monitoring the anti-cancer treatment effect. Fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) probes have been utilized to detect the unique characteristics of either over-expressed oncogenes or abnormalities of chromosomes in tumor cell nuclei. Automated(More)
