Chaos-based image cipher has been widely investigated over the last decade or so to meet the increasing demand for real-time secure image transmission over public networks. In this paper, an improved diffusion strategy is proposed to promote the efficiency of the most widely investigated permutation-diffusion type image cipher. By using the novel(More)
The aim of the paper is to use data mining technology to establish a classification of breast cancer survival patterns, and offers a treatment decision-making reference for the survival ability of women diagnosed with breast cancer in Taiwan. We studied patients with breast cancer in a specific hospital in Central Taiwan to obtain 1,340 data sets. We(More)
Continuous innovation, research and development in technology, manufacturing and production provide the basis for continuous growth and profit. This paper examines how start-up enterprises achieve their operational success. Literature review and the case study method were applied to support the factors of sixteen enterprises within the Hsin-Chu Science(More)
A computer-aided diagnostic system for colonoscopic imaging has been developed to classify colorectal polyps by type. The modules of the proposed system include image enhancement, feature extraction, feature selection and polyp classification. Three hundred sixty-five images (214 with hyperplastic polyps and 151 with adenomatous polyps) were collected from(More)
Genome-wide association studies (GWAS) have become a common approach to identifying single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) associated with complex diseases. As complex diseases are caused by the joint effects of multiple genes, while the effect of individual gene or SNP is modest, a method considering the joint effects of multiple SNPs can be more powerful(More)
MOTIVATION Several efficient gene-gene interaction tests have been developed for unrelated case-control samples in genome-wide association studies (GWAS), making it possible to test tens of billions of interaction pairs of single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in a reasonable timeframe. However, current family-based gene-gene interaction tests are(More)
OBJECTIVES Growth arrest-specific 6 (Gas6), a vitamin K-dependent protein, has been implicated in systemic inflammation, obesity, and insulin resistance (IR). Data from recent studies suggest that polymorphisms in the Gas6 gene are associated with cardiovascular disorders and type 2 diabetes (T2D). However, the association of Gas6 gene variants with(More)
