Internet traffic measurement and analysis has long been used to characterize network usage and user behaviors, but faces the problem of scalability under the explosive growth of Internet traffic and high-speed access. Scalable Internet traffic measurement and analysis is difficult because a large data set requires matching computing and storage resources.(More)
PURPOSE To determine the speed, accuracy, ease of use, and user satisfaction of various electronic data entry platforms for use in the collection of mammography clinical trials data. METHOD AND MATERIALS Four electronic data entry platforms were tested: standalone personal digital assistant (PDA), Tablet PC, digitizer Tablet/PDA Hybrid (DTP Hybrid), and(More)
PURPOSE To investigate the longitudinal changes in retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) thickness after pars plana vitrectomy for rhegmatogenous retinal detachment. METHODS This prospective study examined 33 vitrectomy patients who were diagnosed with rhegmatogenous retinal detachment. Optical coherence tomography was conducted 6, 12, and 24 months after(More)

Viable and nonviable Weissella confusa strain PL9001 inhibited the binding of Helicobacter pylori to human gastric-cell line MKN-45 cells by more than 90%. Spent culture supernatant of PL9001 rapidly decreased the viability of H. pylori, rupturing cell walls. The results suggest that PL9001 is a probiotic that can reduce the infectivity and persistence of(More)
Circadian clocks regulate plant growth and development in response to environmental factors. In this function, clocks influence the adaptation of species to changes in location or climate. Circadian-clock genes have been subject of intense study in models such as Arabidopsis thaliana but the results may not necessarily reflect clock functions in species(More)
Chinese cabbage (Brassica rapa subsp. pekinensis) is an economically important vegetable that has encountered four rounds of polyploidization. The fourth event, whole genome triplication (WGT), occurred after its divergence from Arabidopsis. Expansins (EXPs) are cell wall loosening proteins that participate in cell wall modification processes. In this(More)
Glutelin is a major seed storage protein, accounting for 60–80 % of the total endosperm protein content in rice. To test whether we could augment the expression of an introduced recombinant protein in rice by suppressing the glutelin gene, we generated transgenic glutelin RNAi (glu RNAi) rice seeds. RNA gel blot analyses confirmed that the endogenous(More)
