The "$1000 Genome" project has been drawing increasing attention since its launch a decade ago. Nanopore sequencing, the third-generation, is believed to be one of the most promising sequencing technologies to reach four gold standards set for the "$1000 Genome" while the second-generation sequencing technologies are bringing about a revolution in life(More)
For discovering the quantitative trait loci (QTLs) contributing to early seedling growth and drought tolerance during germination, conditional and unconditional analyses of 12 traits of wheat seedlings: coleoptile length, seedling height, longest root length, root number, seedling fresh weight, stem and leaves fresh weight, root fresh weight, seedling dry(More)
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the potential organ-protective activity of ulinastatin (a urinary trypsin inhibitor) and to investigate the underlying mechanism(s) in a rat model of multiple organ dysfunction syndrome (MODS). When adult Wistar rats were challenged intraperitoneally with yeast polysaccharide (zymosan), they developed biochemical(More)
Even though it is a pandemic health problem worldwide, the pathogenesis of obesity is poorly understood. Recently, emerging studies verified that microRNAs (miRNAs) are involved in complicated metabolic processes including adipocyte differentiation, fat cell formation (adipogenesis), obesity-related insulin resistance and inflammation. Many regulatory(More)
Diabetic kidney disease (DKD) is a serious disease that presents a major health problem worldwide. There is a desperate need to explore novel biomarkers to further facilitate the early diagnosis and effective treatment in DKD patients, thus preventing them from developing end-stage renal disease (ESRD). However, most regulation mechanisms at the genetic(More)
After a survey of existing methods, a fleet planning mixed integer programming model based on multimode investment is developed in accordance with route and transport demand forecast under the fluctuant market environment. This optimization model not only considers investment alternatives to fleet capacity expansion concerning building new ships, purchase(More)
A general framework for vehicle assessment is proposed based on both mass survey information and the evidential reasoning (ER) approach. Several methods for uncertainty and preference modeling are developed within the framework, including the measurement of uncertainty caused by missing information, the estimation of missing information in original surveys,(More)
