Lego Company has made a programmable robot set named Mindstorms NXT(NXT). This set comes with several types of sensors, motor, and programmable brick. The NXT set is provided with visual programming environment. Novice programmer can easily make a program for robot using this visual programming environment. The software of NXT is based on National(More)
We developed multiplex polymerase chain reaction (PCR) to detect aac(6 ')/aph(2 "), aph(3 ')-IIIa, and ant(4 ')-Ia, the genes encoding the most clinically relevant amino-glycoside modifying enzymes (AME), and simultaneously, the methicillin resistant gene, mecA, in Staphylococcus species. Clinical isolates of 45 S. aureus and 47 coagulase negative(More)
Diagnosis of scrub typhus is challenging due to its more than twenty serotypes and the similar clinical symptoms with other acute febrile illnesses including leptospirosis, murine typhus and hemorrhagic fever with renal syndrome. Accuracy and rapidity of a diagnostic test to Orientia tsutsugamushi is an important step to diagnose this disease. To(More)
A robot highly motivates students and it is one of the best ways to connect students with the technology. LEGO created a set called robotic invention system. This system helps students to understand the technology of both robot and programming language. It also improves creativeness by building and controlling the robot. This paper would propose the idea on(More)
In the automotive industry, the usage of microcontrollers has been increasing rapidly. Many mechanical parts of automobiles are being replaced with microcontrollers, and these microcontrollers are controlling various parts of the automobile, so communications between microcontrollers must be reliable. Until now, several protocols for automotive(More)
Diagnosis of scrub typhus is difficult because its symptoms are very similar to other acute febrile illnesses, such as leptospirosis, murine typhus, and other viral hemorrhagic fevers. To differentiate scrub typhus from other acute febrile diseases, a rapid and reliable serological diagnosis is important. We have developed a chimeric recombinant antigen(More)
Wildfire, caused by Pseudomonas amygdali pv. tabaci is one of the most destructive bacterial diseases and was recognized as a disease of soybean in 1943. Wildfire has been seen a steady increase in the incidence and prevalence on some cultivars of soybean in Korea by climatic changes but there is little information on effective control measures for wildfire(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS The management of job-related stress among health-care workers is critical for the improvement of healthcare services; however, there is no existing research on endoscopy unit workers as a team. Korea has a unique health-care system for endoscopy unit workers. In this study, we aimed to estimate job stress and job satisfaction among(More)
BACKGROUND AND STUDY AIMS Many patients with acute gastrointestinal bleeding present with anemia and frequently require red blood cell (RBC) transfusion. A restrictive transfusion strategy and a low hemoglobin (Hb) threshold for transfusion had been shown to produce acceptable outcomes in patients with acute upper gastrointestinal bleeding. However, most(More)
