Most of the prior works on energy saving do not make the best of context-awareness especially in a multiuser environment to assist the energy saving system. In addition, they(More)
BACKGROUND Previously, we identified a sequence variant (N375S) of c-Met gene, however, its association with lung cancer risk and prognosis remain undefined. PATIENTS AND METHODS We investigated the genotype distribution of the c-Met-N375S sequence variant in 206 lung cancer patients and 207 non-cancer controls in the Taiwanese population by DNA(More)

(ABSTRACT) The growing demand for high-performance computing platforms has pushed the computing community to invent new architectures for processors. Recently, researchers have begun to solve the problem by the implementation of Field-Programming Gate Arrays (FPGAs). FPGAs make it possible to implement different applications on the same hardware.(More)
