Accurate prediction of fault prone modules (a module is equivalent to a C function or a C++ method) in software development process enables effective detection and identification of defects. Such prediction models are especially beneficial for large-scale systems, where verification experts need to focus their attention and resources to problem areas in the(More)
Many statistical techniques have been proposed to predict fault-proneness of program modules in software engineering. Choosing the " best " candidate among many available models involves performance assessment and detailed comparison, but these comparisons are not simple due to the applicability of varying performance measures. Classifying a software module(More)
In this paper, we outline a framework for appropriate and proper usage of simulated data for biometric authenti-cation. Currently, there are no formal guidelines concerning the use of simulated data in the biometric authentica-tion literature. Some have suggested the usage of simulated or synthetic data while others have advised against it. Our position is(More)
Recently, the significantly increased IPv6 address length has posed a greater challenge on wire-speed router for IP lookup. As a result, even the most efficient IPv4 lookup scheme can not meet the demand in IPv6. In this paper, we make a thorough study of real world IPv4/IPv6 routing tables and find out the useful characteristic of leaf nodes for the first(More)
PURPOSE Accurate prediction of an individual patient's drug response is an important prerequisite of personalized medicine. Recent pharmacogenomics research in chemosensitivity prediction has studied the gene-drug correlation based on transcriptional profiling. However, proteomic profiling will more directly solve the current functional and pharmacologic(More)
Rice tillering is a multigenic trait that influences grain yield, but its regulation molecular module is poorly understood. Here we report that OsMADS57 interacts with OsTB1 (TEOSINTE BRANCHED1) and targets D14 (Dwarf14) to control the outgrowth of axillary buds in rice. An activation-tagged mutant osmads57-1 and OsMADS57-overexpression lines showed(More)
AIMS The bacterial diversity in a sequencing batch biofilm reactor (SBBR) treating landfill leachate was studied to explain the mechanism of nitrogen removal. METHODS AND RESULTS The total microbial DNA was extracted from samples collected from landfill leachate and biofilm of the reactor with the removal efficiencies of NH(4) (+)-N higher than 97% and(More)
Systematic analysis and interpretation of the large number of tandem mass spectra (MS/MS) obtained in metabolomics experiments is a bottleneck in discovery-driven research. MS/MS mass spectral libraries are small compared to all known small molecule structures and are often not freely available. MS2Analyzer was therefore developed to enable user-defined(More)
