METHODS In this(More)
Precision medicine is promising a revolution for healthcare and medicine in the 21st century. The scientific foundation for this revolution is accomplished by analyzing healthcare data, as well as biological high-throughput data sets from genomics, proteomics, transcriptomics, metabolomics, etc. With data mining and statistical techniques, it has the(More)
A solvent-free system to produce octyl hydroxyphenylpropionate (OHPP) from p-hydroxyphenylpropionic acid (HPPA) and octanol using immobilized lipase (Novozym® 435) as a catalyst in an ultrasound-assisted packed-bed bioreactor was investigated. Response-surface methodology (RSM) and a three-level-three-factor Box-Behnken design were employed to evaluate the(More)
