Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) demonstrates high heritability and familial clustering, yet the genetic causes remain only partially understood as a result of extensive clinical and genomic heterogeneity. Whole-genome sequencing (WGS) shows promise as a tool for identifying ASD risk genes as well as unreported mutations in known loci, but an assessment of(More)
The Greenlandic population, a small and historically isolated founder population comprising about 57,000 inhabitants, has experienced a dramatic increase in type 2 diabetes (T2D) prevalence during the past 25 years. Motivated by this, we performed association mapping of T2D-related quantitative traits in up to 2,575 Greenlandic individuals without known(More)
To explore the contribution of functional coding variants to psoriasis, we analyzed nonsynonymous single-nucleotide variants (SNVs) across the genome by exome sequencing in 781 psoriasis cases and 676 controls and through follow-up validation in 1,326 candidate genes by targeted sequencing in 9,946 psoriasis cases and 9,906 controls from the Chinese(More)
In this study, the synchronization of chaotic neural networks with time delay is developed based on parameter identification and sliding model control. Under the framework of master/slave chaotic neural networks, recurrent neural network is developed to accommodate the on-line synchronization, which the weights of the neural network are iteratively and(More)
The use of mobile sensors is of great relevance to monitor hazardous applications where sensors cannot be deployed manually. Traditional algorithms primarily aim at maximizing network coverage rate, which leads to the creation of the “energy hole” in the region near the sink node. In this article, we are addressing the problem of redistributing mobile(More)
Brassica napus (AACC) is a recent allotetraploid species evolved through hybridization between two diploids, B. rapa (AA) and B. oleracea (CC). Due to extensive genome duplication and homoeology within and between the A and C genomes of B. napus, most SSR markers display multiple fragments or loci, which limit their application in genetics and breeding(More)
A method has been developed for the simultaneous determination of malachite green, gentian violet and their leuco-metabolites in various aquatic products using isotope dilution liquid chromatography-linear ion trap mass spectrometry without post-column oxidation. Sample was extracted with McIlvaine buffer and acetonitrile, followed by partitioning with(More)
A novel method is proposed in this note for exponential stability of cellular neural networks with time-varying delay. New delay-dependent exponential stability conditions of cellular neural network with time-varying delay is presented by constructing Lyapunov function and using linear matrix inequality (LMI). Finally, a numerical example is given to(More)
