Next basket recommendation is a crucial task in market basket analysis. Given a user's purchase history, usually a sequence of transaction data, one attempts to build a recommender that can predict the next few items that the user most probably would like. Ideally, a good recommender should be able to explore the sequential behavior (i.e., buying one item(More)
Past efforts to improve plant tolerance to osmotic stress have had limited success owing to the genetic complexity of stress responses. The first step towards cataloging and categorizing genetically complex abotic stress responses is the rapid discovery of genes by the large-scale partial sequencing of randomly selected cDNA clones or expressed sequence(More)
We have investigated the influence of multimode fiber core (MMFC) diameters and lengths on the sensitivity of an SMS fiber based refractometer. We show that the MMFC diameter has significant influence on the refractive index (RI) sensitivity but the length does not. A refractometer with a lower MMFC diameter has a higher sensitivity. Experimental(More)
We argue that positive comovements between land prices and business investment are a driving force behind the broad impact of land-price dynamics on the macroeconomy. We develop an economic mechanism that captures the comovements by incorporating two key features into a DSGE model: we introduce land as a collateral asset in firms’ credit constraints, and we(More)
Demographic attributes play an important role in retail market to characterize different types of users. Such signals however are often only available for a small fraction of users in practice due to the difficulty in manual collection process by retailers. In this paper, we aim to harness the power of big data to automatically infer users' demographic(More)
The objective of this study was to describe trends in the incidence rates of primary liver cancer in a geographically defined Chinese population. Primary liver cancer cases (N=13 685) were diagnosed between 1981 and 2000 and identified by the Tianjin Cancer Registry. Age-adjusted and age-specific incidence rates were examined in both males and females.(More)
NADPH-cytochrome P-450 reductase (EC 1.6.2.4) preparations were purified to electrophoretic homogeneity from rat, rabbit, and human liver microsomes. These preparations had apparent monomer molecular weights (Mr's) of 72 000-74 000 and were catalytically active in reducing rat and rabbit liver cytochromes P-450 as well as cytochrome c. A form of the human(More)
Six cytochrome P-450 (P-450) isozymes were purified to electrophoretic homogeneity from the livers of four human organ donors, with three of these isozymes purified from a single individual. Differences were noted between all six P-450s for some or all of the parameters determined by the techniques of sodium dodecyl sulfate-polyacrylamide gel(More)
