The technology of sensor, pervasive computing, and intelligent information processing is widely used in Body Sensor Networks (BSNs), which are a branch of wireless sensor networks (WSNs). BSNs are playing an increasingly important role in the fields of medical treatment, social welfare and sports, and are changing the way humans use computers. Existing(More)
In silico prediction of drug-target interactions from heterogeneous biological data can advance our system-level search for drug molecules and therapeutic targets, which efforts have not yet reached full fruition. In this work, we report a systematic approach that efficiently integrates the chemical, genomic, and pharmacological information for drug(More)
Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) disease leads to impaired B cell and antibody responses through mechanisms that remain poorly defined. A unique memory B cell subpopulation (CD20(hi)/CD27(lo)/CD21(lo)) in human tonsillar tissues was recently defined by the expression of the inhibitory receptor Fc-receptor-like-4 (FCRL4). In this study, we describe a(More)
3D environment modeling and motion planning are two essential tasks for an autonomous mobile robot's outdoor navigation. In order to implement mobile robot large-scale motion planning, an edge-feature-based ICP algorithm is presented to complete 3D scene registration and reconstruction. According to the respective advantages of geometric features and(More)
This research provided the first view of metabolic and physiological effect of a tissue-specific glaucousness inhibitor in wheat and laid foundation for map-based cloning of the Iw3 locus. Cuticular wax constitutes the outermost layer of plant skin, and its composition greatly impacts plant appearance and plant–environment interaction. Epicuticular wax in(More)
An obstacle detection approach based on stereo vision is proposed for mobile robot navigation. The aim of the approach is to detect a real environment to allow a mobile robot to find a safe path even in complex scenarios. Our novelty is represented in terms of the two-stage perception structure. The detection stage infers the relationship between obstacles(More)
The paper deals with the Kalman stochastic filtering problem for linear continuous-time systems with both instantaneous and time-delayed measurements. Different from the standard linear system, the system state is corrupted by multiplicative white noise, and the instantaneous measurement and the delayed measurement are also corrupted by multiplicative white(More)
The problem of guaranteed cost control for a class of networked control systems possessing uncertainties, network delays, and packet dropouts is solved in this paper. By means of introducing an auxiliary variable, a newly coupled, switched system model is derived first. Then, based on a predictive network control scheme, the conditions for guaranteed(More)
BACKGROUND Many single-gene knockouts result in increased phenotypic (e.g., morphological) variability among the mutant's offspring. This has been interpreted as an intrinsic ability of genes to buffer genetic and environmental variation. A phenotypic capacitor is a gene that appears to mask phenotypic variation: when knocked out, the offspring shows more(More)
