— It has been shown that the dynamic environment around the mobile robot can be efficiently and robustly represented by the Bayesian occupancy filter (BOF) [1]. In the BOF framework, the environment is decomposed into a grid-based representation in which both the occupancy and the velocity distributions are estimated for each grid cell. In such a(More)
We investigate the problems of multiclass cancer classification with gene selection from gene expression data. Two different constructed multiclass classifiers with gene selection are proposed, which are fuzzy support vector machine (FSVM) with gene selection and binary classification tree based on SVM with gene selection. Using F test and recursive feature(More)
The article deals with the analysis and interpretation of dynamic scenes typical of urban driving. The key objective is to assess risks of collision for the ego-vehicle. We describe our concept and methods, which we have integrated and tested on our experimental platform on a Lexus car and a driving simulator. The on-board sensors deliver visual, telemetric(More)
The large yellow croaker, Larimichthys crocea, is one of the most economically important marine fish species endemic to China. Its wild stocks have severely suffered from overfishing, and the aquacultured species are vulnerable to various marine pathogens. Here we report the creation of a draft genome of a wild large yellow croaker using a whole-genome(More)
Necktie knots are inherently topological structures; what makes them tractable is the particular manner in which they are constructed. This observation motivates a map between tie knots and persistent walks on a triangular lattice. The topological structure embedded in a tie knot may be determined by appropriately manipulating its projection; we derive(More)
A quasi-passive dynamic walking robot is built to study natural and energy-efficient biped walking. The robot is actuated by MACCEPA actuators. A reinforcement learning based control method is proposed to enhance the robustness and stability of the robot's walking. The proposed method first learns the desired gait for the robot's walking on a flat floor.(More)
AIM 20(S)-Ginsenoside Rh2 (Rh2) has shown potent inhibition on P-glycoprotein (P-gp), while most HIV protease inhibitors are both substrates and inhibitors of P-gp and CYP3A4. The aim of this study was to investigate the potential pharmacokinetic interactions between Rh2 and the HIV protease inhibitor ritonavir. METHODS The effects of Rh2 on the cellular(More)
BACKGROUND Cephalopoda are a class of Mollusca species found in all the world's oceans. They are an important model organism in neurobiology. Unfortunately, the lack of neuronal molecular sequences, such as ESTs, transcriptomic or genomic information, has limited the development of molecular neurobiology research in this unique model organism. RESULTS(More)
The symmetry of a knot, which is our first aesthetic constraint, is determined by the number of moves to the right minus the number of moves to the left, sǃ∑ iǃ1 h x i where x i ǃ1 if the ith step is r ^ , ǁ1 if the ith step is l ^ and 0 otherwise. Because asymmet-ric knots disrupt human bilateral symmetry , we consider the most symmetric knots from each(More)
BACKGROUND Further advances of targeted cancer therapy require comprehensive in-depth profiling of somatic mutations that are present in subpopulations of tumor cells in a clinical tumor sample. However, it is unclear to what extent such intratumor heterogeneity is present and whether it may affect clinical decision-making. To study this question, we(More)
