Intron retention (IR) is widely recognized as a consequence of mis-splicing that leads to failed excision of intronic sequences from pre-messenger RNAs. Our bioinformatic analyses of transcriptomic and proteomic data of normal white blood cell differentiation reveal IR as a physiological mechanism of gene expression control. IR regulates the expression of(More)
We propose a new, communication-efficient way for users to fetch multiple blocks simultaneously in Goldberg's robust information-theoretic private information retrieval (IT-PIR) scheme. Our new multi-block IT-PIR trades off some Byzantine robustness to improve throughput without affecting user privacy. By taking advantage of the recent Cohn-Heninger(More)
Traditional stop-and-pay toll booths inconvenience drivers and are infeasible for complicated urban areas. As a way to minimize traffic congestion and avoid the inconveniences caused by toll booths, electronic tolling has been suggested. For example, as drivers pass certain locations, a picture of their licence plate may be taken and a bill sent to their(More)
In this paper, we employed RSS (rapid stream stimulation) paradigm to study the recognition processes of Chinese characters in background music. Real Chinese characters (upright or rotated) were used as target stimuli, while pseudo-words were used as background stimuli. Subjects were required to detect real characters while listening to Mozart's Sonata K.(More)
The accuracy of optical tracking systems is important to scientists. With the improvements reported in this regard, such systems have been applied to an increasing number of operations. To enhance the accuracy of these systems further and to reduce the effect of synchronization and visual field errors, this study introduces a field-programmable gate array(More)
Distributed key generation (DKG) has been studied extensively in the cryptographic literature. However, it has never been examined outside of the synchronous setting, and the known DKG protocols cannot guarantee safety or liveness over the Internet. In this work, we present the first realistic DKG protocol for use over the Internet. We propose a practical(More)
In our previous work, we have proposed a distributed self-assembly method based on Sambot platform. But there have interference of the infrared sensors between multiple Sambots. In this paper, two interference problems with multiple DSAs are solved and a novel simultaneous self-assembly method is proposed to enhance the efficiency of the self-assembly of(More)
