The Rehai and Ruidian geothermal fields, located in Tengchong County, Yunnan Province, China, host a variety of geochemically distinct hot springs. In this study, we report a comprehensive, cultivation-independent census of microbial communities in 37 samples collected from these geothermal fields, encompassing sites ranging in temperature from 55.1 to(More)
In this work, we present SilentSense, a framework to authenticate users silently and transparently by exploiting the user touch behavior biometrics and leveraging the integrated sensors to capture the micro-movement of the device caused by user's screen-touch actions. By tracking the fine-detailed touch actions of the user, we build a "touch-based(More)
The diversity of archaea and bacteria was investigated in ten hot springs (elevation >4600 m above sea level) in Central and Central-Eastern Tibet using 16S rRNA gene phylogenetic analysis. The temperature and pH of these hot springs were 26–81°C and close to neutral, respectively. A total of 959 (415 and 544 for bacteria and archaea, respectively) clone(More)
Using RNA-based techniques and hot spring samples collected from Yunnan Province, China, we show that the amoA gene of aerobic ammonia-oxidizing archaea can be transcribed at temperatures higher than 74 degrees C and up to 94 degrees C, suggesting that archaeal nitrification can potentially occur at near boiling temperatures.
The microbial diversity was investigated in sediments of six acidic to circumneutral hot springs (Temperature: 60-92 °C, pH 3.72-6.58) in the Philippines using an integrated approach that included geochemistry and 16S rRNA gene pyrosequencing. Both bacterial and archaeal abundances were lower in high-temperature springs than in moderate-temperature ones.(More)
We propose joint channel sensing, probing, and accessing schemes for secondary users in cognitive radio networks. Our method has time and space complexity O(N ·k) for a network with N channels and k secondary users, while applying classic methods requires exponential time complexity. We prove that, even when channel states are selected by adversary (thus(More)
To address the problem of information spreading over lossy communication channels, this paper proposes a joint FoUntain coding and Network coding (FUN) approach. Different from the Transmission Control Protocol (TCP), our FUN approach is a mechanism of Forward Error Correction (FEC), which does not use retransmission for recovery of lost packets. The(More)
Assume that a set of Demand Response Switch (DRS) devices are deployed in smart meters for autonomous demand side management within one house. The DRS devices are able to sense and control the activity of each appliance. We propose a set of appliance scheduling algorithms to 1) minimize the peak power consumption under a fixed delay requirement, and 2)(More)
Studies focusing on seasonal dynamics of microbial communities in terrestrial and marine environments are common; however, little is known about seasonal dynamics in high-temperature environments. Thus, our objective was to document the seasonal dynamics of both the physicochemical conditions and the microbial communities inhabiting hot springs in Tengchong(More)
The diversity and community structure of planktonic Actinobacteria in a freshwater river and five fresh/saline/hypersaline lakes on the Tibetan Plateau, China were investigated with a combination of geochemical and 16S rRNA gene phylogenetic analyses. A total of 387 actinobacterial 16S rRNA gene clones were sequenced, and they could be classified into(More)
