— Setting up a suitable toroidal current profile in a fusion tokamak reactor is vital to the eventual realization of a commercial nuclear fusion power plant. Creating the desired current profile during the ramp-up and early flat-top phases of the plasma discharge and then actively maintaining this target profile for the remainder of the discharge is the(More)
Seaweeds are essential for marine ecosystems and have immense economic value. Here we present a comprehensive analysis of the draft genome of Saccharina japonica, one of the most economically important seaweeds. The 537-Mb assembled genomic sequence covered 98.5% of the estimated genome, and 18,733 protein-coding genes are predicted and annotated. Gene(More)
— The tokamak is a device that utilizes magnetic fields to confine a reactant gas to generate energy from nuclear fusion reactions. The next step towards the realization of a tokamak power plant is the ITER project, and extensive research has been conducted to find high performance operating scenarios characterized by a high fusion gain and plasma(More)
Mantle cell lymphoma (MCL) is a rare and aggressive type of B-cell non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. Patients become progressively refractory to conventional chemotherapy, and their prognosis is poor. However, a 38% remission rate has been recently reported in refractory MCL treated with temsirolimus, a mTOR inhibitor.Here we had the opportunity to study a case of(More)
— In this work, a first-principles-driven, control-oriented, nonlinear, partial-differential-equation model of the poloidal flux profile evolution is utilized to design a feedback control algorithm to regulate the rotational transform profile in the DIII-D tokamak. The control goal is to regulate the rotational transform profile, which is related to the(More)
The association between consumption of red and processed meat and non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) remains unclear. We performed a meta-analysis of the published observational studies to explore this relationship.We searched databases in MEDLINE and EMBASE to identify observational studies which evaluated the association between consumption of red and processed(More)
The T-cell lymphoproliferative neoplasms (T-LPN) are characterized by a poor clinical outcome. Current therapeutics are mostly non-selective and may induce harmful side effects. It has been reported that NOTCH1 activation mutations frequently associate T-LPN. Because anti-Notch1 based therapies such as γ-secretase inhibitors (GSI) are less efficient and(More)

Efficient, high-gain operation of a tokamak device requires the achievement of certain radial shapes for the toroidal current profile. The evolution in time of the toroidal current profile in tokamaks is related to the evolution of the poloidal magnetic flux profile. A model-based control approach for the regulation of the poloidal magnetic flux profile at(More)
