E-commerce applications cannot dictate the content of databases (DBs) or how the data services are provided. Thus the problem of interoperability arises when accessing existing data stores. A generalized version of this problem is called an impedance mismatch problem that arises when object oriented programs store objects in relational DBs. We describe a(More)
BACKGROUND In Western countries, a history of major depression (MD) is associated with reports of received parenting that is low in warmth and caring and high in control and authoritarianism. Does a similar pattern exist in women in China? METHOD Received parenting was assessed by a shortened version of the Parental Bonding Instrument (PBI) in two groups(More)
The beef tapeworm Taenia saginata infects human beings with symptoms ranging from nausea, abdominal discomfort to digestive disturbances and intestinal blockage. In the present study, microRNA (miRNA) expressing profile in adult T. saginata was analyzed using Solexa deep sequencing and bioinformatics analysis. A total of 15.8 million reads was obtained by(More)
Human vascular systems have considerable anatomic variations. In diseased situation, significant pathological changes will be developed with the systems. However, vascular catheterization devices commercially available are essentially designed on normal or average anatomy. Their inadequacies in representing major deviations in human vascular anatomy may(More)
BACKGROUND The relationship between recurrent major depression (MD) in women and suicidality is complex. We investigated the extent to which patients who suffered with various forms of suicidal symptomatology can be distinguished from those subjects without such symptoms. METHOD We examined the clinical features of the worst episode in 1970 Han Chinese(More)
This paper describes the application of artificial neural networks to discriminating the coding system of eukaryotic genes. We choose > 300 genes from eight eukaryotic organisms: human, mouse, rat, horse, ox, sheep, soybean and rabbit, from which we build up different discrimination models relevant to their promoter regions, poly(A) signals, splice site(More)
The CO oxidation reaction on Rh(111) was studied both at low pressures (e2 × 10-4 Torr) under steady-state conditions and at high pressures (0.01-88 Torr) in a batch reactor at various gaseous reactant compositions. Surface CO and O coverages were determined using polarization modulation infrared reflection absorption spectroscopy (PM-IRAS) and X-ray(More)
