This article introduces a new DNA sequence compression algorithm which is based on LUT and LZ77 algorithm. Combined a LUT-based preceding routine and LZ77 compression routine, this algorithm can approach a compression ratio of 1.9 bits/base and even lower. The biggest advantage of this algorithm is fast execution, small memory occupation and easy(More)
Particle swarm optimizer (PSO) is a populationbased evolutionary algorithm which is widely adopted due to its simple implementation and fast convergence. But, when optimizing complex problems, PSO may lead to premature convergence. In this paper, inspired by the core idea of the tabu search algorithm, we incorporate the tabu strategy and propose a revised(More)
DNA matching has become one of the most used biometric identification method during the last several years. DNA stores the information for creating and organizing an organism. It can be thought of as a string over the alphabets {A, C, G, T, N}, which makes four chemical components that make it up. Here, N represents an unknown nucleotide. This unknown(More)
In emitter geo-location estimation systems, it is well known that the geometry between sensors and the emitter can seriously impact the accuracy of the location estimate. Here we consider a case where a set of sensors is tasked to perform a sequence of location estimates on an emitter as the sensors progress throughout their trajectories. The goal is to(More)
In this paper, we propose a fast 2-D block-based motion estimation algorithm called Particle Swarm Optimization Zero-motion Prejudgment(PSO-ZMP) which consists of three sequential routines: 1)Zero-motion prejudgment. The routine aims at finding static macroblocks(MB) which do not need to perform remaining search thus reduces the computational cost;(More)
BACKGROUND Several studies have investigated the diagnostic value of fibulin-3 for malignant pleural mesothelioma (MPM), but the results were various. Therefore, we performed a systematic review and meta-analysis to evaluate the diagnostic value of fibulin-3 for MPM. RESULTS Eight studies were included in this work. The overall sensitivity of blood(More)
Time-of-flight (TOF) information improves the signal-to-noise ratio in positron emission tomography (PET). The computation cost in processing TOF-PET sinograms is substantially higher than for nonTOF data because the data in each line of response is divided among multiple TOF bins. This additional cost has motivated research into methods for rebinning TOF(More)
