Support Vector Machine is used to classify data obtained from Amplified Fragment length Polymorphism screening of gastric cancer and normal tissue samples. Using the electrophoresis peak intensity measurements of the amplified fragments of the cancer and normal tissues, SVM was able to distinguish gastric cancer from normal tissue samples with a sensitivity(More)
Many researches have been conducted in hair modeling and hair rendering with considerable success. However, the immense number of hair strands present means that memory and CPU time requirements are very severe. To reduce the memory and the time needed for hair modeling and rendering, a visible volume buffer is proposed. Instead of using thousands of thin(More)
Recently, SNP has gained substantial attention as genetic markers and is recognized as a key element in the development of personalized medicine. Computational prediction of SNP can be used as a guide for SNP discovery to reduce the cost and time needed for the development of personalized medicine. We have developed a method for SNP prediction based on(More)
BACKGROUND With its tropical rainforest climate, rapid urbanization, and changing demography and ecology, Singapore experiences endemic dengue; the last large outbreak in 2013 culminated in 22,170 cases. In the absence of a vaccine on the market, vector control is the key approach for prevention. OBJECTIVES We sought to forecast the evolution of dengue(More)
The identification and validation of protein allergens have become more important nowadays as more and more transgenic proteins are introduced into our food chains. Current allergen prediction algorithms focus on the identification of single motif or single allergen peptide for allergen detection. However, an analysis of the 575 allergen dataset shows that(More)
Amplified Fragment Length Polymorphism (AFLP) screening is a genome-wide genotyping strategy that has been widely used in plants and bacteria, but little has been reported concerning its use in humans. We investigated if the AFLP procedure could be coupled with high-throughput capillary electrophoresis (CE) for use in tumor diagnosis and classification.(More)
Research in the post-genome sequence era has been shifting towards a functional understanding of the roles and relationships between different genes in different conditions. While the advances in genetic expression profiling techniques including microarrays enable detailed and genome-scale measurements, the extraction of meaningful information from large(More)
