Esophageal cancer (EC) is a common malignancy worldwide. The X-ray repair cross-complementing 1 gene (XRCC1) is one of the most important candidate genes for influencing susceptibility to EC. This study aimed to investigate the effect of XRCC1 genetic variants on susceptibility to EC. A total of 383 EC patients (males: 239, females: 144, mean age: 56.62)(More)
— A new layered frequency-domain turbo equalization (LFDTE) scheme is proposed for single carrier (SC) multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) systems. The proposed scheme combines the respective advantages of layered detection and turbo equalization to further lower the bit error rate (BER) for high-data-rate communications. Different from the traditional(More)
Global warming will stimulate primary production, which is likely to drive shifts in litter production and lead to an increase in carbon (C) inputs to soil. However, the effects of such changes on soil C cycling in subtropical forests remain largely unknown. In a typical subtropical evergreen broadleaved forest in Southwestern China we conducted a(More)
Project Description: The objective of this project is to develop new algorithms and techniques for the design and development of transceivers for terrestrial beyond-line-of-sight communications in difficult propagation and multi-path environments such as urban areas, hilly terrain areas, and forested regions. The newly designed transceivers will have both(More)
Project Description: Shallow water channels are often extremely hostile and inhomogeneous, imposing several major challenges to communication systems: very limited bandwidth (only several ten kHz), severe triply-spread fading distortion (i.e. Doppler spread, delay spread, and angular spread), and range-dependent shadowing (resulting in worse-than Rayleigh(More)
Project Description: The objective of this research is to design networked underwater acoustic transceivers to achieve high network throughput and high reliability for shallow water sensor networks. The approach is to maximize the power and bandwidth efficiency through a Joint Power-Allocation and Diversity (JPAD) optimization scheme combined with adaptive(More)
