BACKGROUND A greater reduction in cancer risk associated with mushroom diet rich in fungus polysaccharides is generally accepted. Meanwhile, edible Pleurotus abalonus as a member of Abalone mushroom family is a popular nutritional supplement that purportedly prevents cancer occurrence. However, these anecdotal claims are supported by limited studies(More)
This paper proposes a novel extended-single-phase shift (ESPS) control strategy of isolated bidirectional full-bridge DC-DC converters (IBDCs) which are a promising alternative as a power electronic interface in microgrids with an additional function of galvanic isolation. Based on the mathematical models of ESPS control under steady-state conditions,(More)
Although much is known about microRNAs' regulation in gene expression and their contributions in cell fate, to date, globally lineage-(cell-) specific identification of the binding events between a transcription factor and its targeting microRNA genes is still waiting for elucidation. In this paper, we performed a ChIP-Seq experiment to find the targeting(More)
DNA strand displacement technology performs well in sensing and programming DNA segments. In this work, we construct DNA molecular systems based on DNA strand displacement performing computation of logic gates. Specifically, a class of so-called "DNA neurons" are achieved, in which a "smart" way inspired by biological neurons encoding information is(More)
Membrane algorithms are a class of distributed and parallel algorithms inspired by the structure and behavior of living cells. Many attractive features of living cells have already been abstracted as operators to improve the performance of algorithms. In this work, inspired by the function of biological neuron cells storing information, we consider a memory(More)
Spiking neural (SN) P systems are a class of distributed parallel computing devices inspired by the way neurons communicate by means of spikes. In this work, we investigate reversibility in SN P systems, as well as the computing power of reversible SN P systems. Reversible SN P systems are proved to have Turing creativity, that is, they can compute any(More)
Nuclear export signal (NES) is a nuclear targeting signal within cargo proteins, which is involved in signal transduction and cell cycle regulation. NES is believed to be “born to be weak”; hence, it is a challenge in computational biology to identify it from high-throughput data of amino acid sequences. This work endeavors to tackle the challenge by(More)
