Due to the well-developed technology and its variety of applications, the Radio Frequency Identifications (RFIDs) become more and more popular. In many applications such as authentication, the RFID systems need security mechanism to resist all possible attacks and threats. However, most of the security mechanisms always too complex on computation or need(More)
Due to the well-developed technology, the radio frequency identification (RFID) is widely used in all areas. For some applications, the RFID system simply worked as a memory card without security mechanism. However, in many applications, the RFID systems need security mechanism for authentication. In scenario such as e-passport, the RFID systems even need(More)
The HRAS-like suppressor 2 (HRASLS2) gene belongs to the H-REV107 gene family involved in the regulation of cell growth and differentiation. HRASLS2 is expressed at high levels in normal tissues of the small intestine, kidney, and trachea. We cloned HRASLS2 cDNA from human SW480 colon cancer cells. Most wild-type, and some N- and C-terminal truncated(More)
From May 2007 to January 2008, 30 isolates of vancomycin-resistant enterococci (VRE), including 29 Enterococcus faecium (96.7%) and 1 E. faecalis (3.3%) were obtained from various clinical specimens of 30 patients treated at a university hospital in Taiwan. Among these patients, 27 had VRE infections, including urinary tract infection (n = 16), bacteremia(More)
The cancer classification through gene expression patterns becomes one of the most promising applications of the microarray technology. It is also a significant procedure in bioinformatics. In this study a grid computing based evolutionary mining approach is proposed as discriminant function for gene selection and tumor classification. The proposed approach(More)
Topics on reverse logistics have been discussed over the years. Most of them are dealt with by assuming that facilities are kept open once they are established, and no inventory is stocked at intermediate recycling stations. By simultaneously relaxing these two assumptions, this paper studies a reverse logistics system with multiple items of which each(More)
