Recommender systems have shown great potential in addressing the information overload problem, namely helping users in finding interesting and relevant objects within a huge information space. Some physical dynamics, including the heat conduction process and mass or energy diffusion on networks, have recently found applications in personalized(More)
Recommendation systems represent an important tool for news distribution on the Internet. In this work we modify a recently proposed social recommendation model in order to deal with no explicit ratings of users on news. The model consists of a network of users which continually adapts in order to achieve an efficient news traffic. To optimize network's(More)
Periostin (POSTN), a recently characterised matricellular protein, is frequently dysregulated in various malignant cancers and promotes tumor metastatic growth. POSTN plays a critical role in the crosstalk between murine breast cancer stem cells (CSCs) and their niche to permit metastatic colonization. However, whether pro-metastatic capability of POSTN is(More)
Exposing digital audio forgeries in time domain is a significant research issue in the audio forensics community. In this paper, we develop an audio forensics method to detect and locate audio forgeries in time domain (including deletion, insertion, substitution and splicing) by analyzing singularity points of audio signals after performing discrete wavelet(More)
BACKGROUND Ubiquitination is a reversible process of posttranslational protein modification through the action of the family of deubiquitylating enzymes which contain ubiquitin-specific protease 9x (USP9X). Recent evidence indicates that USP9X is involved in the progression of various human cancers. The aim was to detect the expression of USP9X in the(More)
Accuracy and diversity are two important aspects to evaluate the performance of recommender systems. Two diffusion-based methods were proposed respectively inspired by the mass diffusion (MD) and heat conduction (HC) processes on networks. It has been pointed out that MD has high recommendation accuracy yet low diversity, while HC succeeds in seeking out(More)
Hyperphosphorylated tau protein is the main component of neurofibrillary tangles found in Alzheimer's disease and Parkinson's disease (PD). Mutations in DJ-1 have been identified as the causative gene for Parkinson's disease 7 (PARK7)-linked PD. DJ-1L166P and DJ-1D149A, two types of DJ-1 mutations, are most commonly studied as the loss-of-function mutations(More)
