As the potential drug targets, G-protein coupled receptors (GPCRs) and nuclear receptors (NRs) are the focuses in pharmaceutical research. It is of great practical significance to develop an automated and reliable method to facilitate the identification of novel receptors. In this study, a method of fast Fourier transform-based support vector machine was(More)
The Material Point Method (MPM), which is a particle-based, meshless method that discretizes material bodies into a collection of material points (the particles), is a new method for numerical analysis of dynamic solid mechanics problems. Recently, MPM has been generalized to include dynamic stress analysis of structures with explicit cracks. This paper(More)
This paper describes algorithms for threedimensional dynamic stress and fracture analysis using the material point method (MPM). By allowing dual velocity fields at background grid nodes, the method provides exact numerical implementation of explicit cracks in a predominantly meshless method. Crack contact schemes were included for automatically preventing(More)
Drought significantly constrains higher yield of alfalfa (Medicago sativa L.) in arid and semiarid areas all over the world. This study evaluated the responses of leaf cuticular wax constituents to drought treatment and their relations to gas-exchange indexes across six alfalfa cultivars widely grown in China. Water deficit was imposed by withholding water(More)
We investigated the genetic diversity of arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF) in soils and the roots of Phalaris aquatica L., Trifolium subterraneum L., and Hordeum leporinum Link growing in limed and unlimed soil, the influence of lime application on AMF colonization and the relationship between AMF diversity and soil chemical properties. The sampling was(More)
Estimating a channel impulse response using a known aperiodic sequence is considered. The problem can be reduced to minimizing the trace of the inverse of a Toeplitz matrix. An efficient algorithm for computing this trace is developed and optimal binary sequences up to length 32 are found and tabulated. The use of complementary sequences in this context is(More)
