n-3 Polyunsaturated fatty acids (n-3 PUFA) are important for human health. Alternative resources of n-3 PUAFs created by transgenic domestic animals would be an economic approach. In this study, we generated a mfat-1 transgenic cattle expressed a Caenorhabditis elegans gene, mfat-1, encoding an n-3 fatty acid desaturase. Fatty acids analysis of tissue and(More)
Recently, some recommendation methods try to improve the prediction results by integrating information from user's multiple types of behaviors. How to model the dependence and independence between different behaviors is critical for them. In this paper, we propose a novel recommendation model, the Group-Sparse Matrix Factorization (GSMF), which factorizes(More)
Self-healing key distribution enables users in a large and dynamic group to establish session keys for secure group communication over an unreliable network (e.g., wireless sensor networks). The main property of self-healing key distribution is that the users are capable of recovering lost session keys on their own, without requesting additional(More)
Self-healing key distribution enables users in a large and dynamic group to establish session keys for secure group communication over an unreliable network. The main property of self-healing key distribution is that the users are capable of recovering lost session keys on their own, without requesting additional transmissions from the group manager.

Stroke is a major cause of permanent neurologic damage, with few effective treatments available to restore lost function. Induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) have the potential to generate all cell types in vitro and can be generated from a stroke patient. Therefore, iPSCs are attractive donor sources of genetically identical “patient-specific” cells to(More)
Traditionally, Collaborative Filtering assumes that similar users have similar responses to similar items. However, human activities exhibit heterogenous features across multiple domains such that users own similar tastes in one domain may behave quite differently in other domains. Moreover, highly sparse data presents crucial challenge in preference(More)
Fault tolerance provides wireless sensor networks (WSN) with reliable collection and dissemination of data while preserving limited resources in sensor nodes, especially power energy. Although data redundancy achieves the goal of fault tolerance in the data-centered network infrastructure of WSNpsilas, it also incurs security concerns by making data(More)
Track-to-track fusion using estimates from multiple sensors can achieve better estimation performance than a single sensor. If the local sensors use different system models in different state spaces, the problem of heterogeneous track-to-track fusion arises. Compared with homogeneous track-to-track fusion that assumes the same system model for different(More)
