Hepatitis B viruses (HBVs) show instantaneous and high-ratio mutations when they are replicated, some sorts of which significantly affect the efficiency of virus replication through enhancing or depressing the viral replication, while others have no influence at all. The mechanism of gene expression is closely correlated with its gene sequence. With the(More)
Compared with the conventional amino acid (AA) composition, the pseudo-amino acid (PseAA) composition as originally introduced for protein subcellular location prediction can incorporate much more information of a protein sequence, so as to remarkably enhance the power of using a discrete model to predict various attributes of a protein. In this study,(More)
It is a critical challenge to develop automated methods for fast and accurately determining the structures of proteins because of the increasingly widening gap between the number of sequence-known proteins and that of structure-known proteins in the post-genomic age. The knowledge of protein structural class can provide useful information towards the(More)
In the first part of this paper, we investigate explicit structure of the typical Takagi– Sugeno (TS) fuzzy PI and PD controllers. By typical, we mean the use of at least three trapezoidal or triangular input fuzzy sets for each input variable, fuzzy rules with linear consequent, Zadeh fuzzy logic AND operator and the centroid defuzzifier. This(More)
A gene-clone-library-based molecular approach was used to study the nirS-encoding bacteria–environment relationship in the sediments of the eutrophic Jiaozhou Bay. Diverse nirS sequences were recovered and most of them were related to the marine cluster I group, ubiquitous in estuarine, coastal, and marine environments. Some NirS sequences were unique to(More)
The function of eukaryotic protein is closely correlated with its subcellular location. The number of newly found protein sequences entering into data banks is rapidly increasing with the success of human genome project. It is highly desirable to predict a protein subcellular automatically from its amino acid sequence. In this paper, amino acid hydrophobic(More)
Air samples were concurrently collected using high volume air samplers for 24 h every week from September 2008 to August 2009 at 15 sites (11 urban, 1 suburban, and 3 background/rural) across China. Twelve polybrominated diphenyl ether (PBDE) congeners (BDE-17, -28, -47, -66, -85, -99, -100, -138, -153, -154, -183, and -209) were measured. Total PBDE(More)
Prediction of protein secondary structure is somewhat reminiscent of the efforts by many previous investigators but yet still worthy of revisiting it owing to its importance in protein science. Several studies indicate that the knowledge of protein structural classes can provide useful information towards the determination of protein secondary structure.(More)
