Tailoring materials into different structures offers unprecedented opportunities in the realization of their functional properties. Particularly, controllable design of diverse structured electrode materials is regarded as a crucial step towards fabricating high-performance batteries. Herein, a general biochemistry-directed strategy has been developed to(More)
The archaeal phylum Bathyarchaeota, which is composed of a large number of diverse lineages, is widespread and abundant in marine sediments. Environmental factors that control the distribution, abundance and evolution of this largely diversified archaeal phylum are currently unclear. In this study, a new pair of specific primers that target the major marine(More)
In this study, a surface-coated wooden-tip electrospray ionization mass spectrometry (SCWT-ESI-MS) method was developed for rapid and sensitive analysis of trace fluoroquinolone and macrolide antibiotics in water. First, a SCWT solid-phase microextration (SPME) probe was prepared, via silanization and sulfonation for modification of a layer of adsorbent(More)
The design of a freestanding electrode is the key to the development of energy storage devices with superior electrochemical performance and mechanical durability. Herein, we propose a highly-scalable strategy for the facile synthesis of a freestanding alluaudite Na2+2xFe2-x(SO4)3@porous carbon-nanofiber hybrid film, which is used as a self-supported and(More)
Decidual CD4+ T (dCD4 T) cells are crucial for the maternal-fetal immune tolerance required for a healthy pregnancy outcome. However, their molecular and functional characteristics are not well elucidated. In this study, we performed the first analysis of transcriptional and alternative splicing (AS) landscapes for paired decidual and peripheral blood CD4+(More)
An algorithm to optimize the energy efficiency with consideration of high quality of service (QoS) and total power consumption in two-way orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (OFDM) relay systems is proposed first, then a further simplification is presented, forcing on the idea to accelerate the MCU and reduce the correspondingly needed resources for(More)
In this paper, we propose a fuzzy case-based reasoning system, using a case-based reasoning (CBR) system that learns from experience to solve problems. Different from a traditional case-based reasoning system that uses crisp cases, our system works with fuzzy ones. Specifically, we change a crisp case into a fuzzy one by fuzzifying each crisp case element(More)
Based on thermal alkaline hydrolysis (TAH), a novel strategy of stepwise hydrolysis was developed to improve carbon releasing efficiency from waste activated sludge (WAS). By stepwise increasing hydrolysis intensity, conventional sludge hydrolysis (the control) was divided into four stages for separately recovering sludge carbon sources with different(More)
