—This paper proposes the design of the software Universal Middleware Bridge (UMB) that can be used to solve seamless interoperability problems caused by the heterogeneity of several kinds of home network middleware. We verified that the proposed UMB dynamically maps physical devise in all different middleware domains into virtually abstracted devices in the(More)
Due to the large number of putative microRNA gene targets predicted by sequence-alignment databases and the relative low accuracy of such predictions which are conducted independently of biological context by design, systematic experimental identification and validation of every functional microRNA target is currently challenging. Consequently, biological(More)
ECgene provides annotation for gene structure, function and expression, taking alternative splicing events into consideration. The gene-modeling algorithm combines the genome-based expressed sequence tag (EST) clustering and graph-theoretic transcript assembly procedures. The website provides several viewers and applications that have many unique features(More)
ECgene (http://genome.ewha.ac.kr/ECgene) was developed to provide functional annotation for alternatively spliced genes. The applications encompass the genome-based transcript modeling for alternative splicing (AS), domain analysis with Gene Ontology (GO) annotation and expression analysis based on the EST and SAGE data. We have expanded the ECgene's AS(More)
—This paper presents our research progress for group context-aware service discovery supporting continuous service availability by providing an alternative service. We believe that service discovery system need to have efficient method for representing the context of a service and a good algorithm for matching and evaluation. We adopt IOPE model from(More)
— The reliability of data transmission and the energy consumption of wireless nodes in wireless sensor networks (WSNs) are important issues as interest in this type of network increases. IEEE 802.15.4 is a suitable protocol for WSNs because it was designed for low-power operation via wireless communications. The guaranteed time slot (GTS) of IEEE 802.15.4(More)
Characterizing the biomolecular systems' properties underpinning prognosis signatures derived from gene expression profiles remains a key clinical and biological challenge. In breast cancer, while different "poor-prognosis" sets of genes have predicted patient survival outcome equally well in independent cohorts, these prognostic signatures have(More)
