Nowadays, short texts are very prevalent in various web applications, such as microblogs, instant messages. The severe sparsity of short texts hinders existing topic models to learn reliable topics. In this paper, we propose a novel way to tackle this problem. The key idea is to learn topics by exploring term correlation data, rather than the(More)
Non-negative matrix factorization (NMF) has been successfully applied in document clustering. However, experiments on short texts, such as microblogs, Q&#38;A documents and news titles, suggest unsatisfactory performance of NMF. An major reason is that the traditional term weighting schemes, like binary weight and <i>tfidf</i>, cannot well capture the(More)
Query recommendation has been widely used in modern search engines. Recently, several context-aware methods have been proposed to improve the accuracy of recommendation by mining query sequence patterns from query sessions. However, the existing methods usually do not address the ambiguity of queries explicitly and often suffer from the sparsity of the(More)

Bursty topics discovery in microblogs is important for people to grasp essential and valuable information. However, the task is challenging since microblog posts are particularly short and noisy. This work develops a novel probabilistic model, namely Bursty Biterm Topic Model (BBTM), to deal with the task. BBTM extends the Biterm Topic Model (BTM) by(More)
Traditional Chinese medicine has gained popularity due to its ability to kill tumor cells. Recently, the apoptotic and anti-angiogenic effects of Trametes robiniophila murr (Huaier) have been investigated. The aim of this study was to investigate its effect on cell mobility and tumor growth in ovarian cancer. Cell viability and motility were measured using(More)
Posterior body wall muscle contraction (pBoc) in the nematode Caenorhabditis elegans occurs rhythmically every 45-50 s and mediates defecation. pBoc is controlled by inositol-1,4,5-trisphosphate (IP3)-dependent Ca2+ oscillations in the intestine. The intestinal epithelium can be studied by patch clamp electrophysiology, Ca2+ imaging, genome-wide reverse(More)
The nematode Caenorhabditis elegans provides numerous experimental advantages for developing an integrative molecular understanding of physiological processes and has proven to be a valuable model for characterizing Ca(2+) signaling mechanisms. This review will focus on the role of Ca(2+) release activated Ca(2+) (CRAC) channel activity in function of the(More)
