—Recently, wireless sensor networks (WSNs) have been widely discussed in many applications. In this paper, we propose a WSN-based intelligent light control system for indoor environments. Wireless sensors are responsible for measuring current illuminations. Two kinds of lighting devices, namely whole lighting and local lighting devices, are used to provide(More)
BACKGROUND The orphan nuclear receptor TR4 (human testicular receptor 4 or NR2C2) plays a pivotal role in a variety of biological and metabolic processes. With no known ligand and few known target genes, the mode of TR4 function was unclear. RESULTS We report the first genome-wide identification and characterization of TR4 in vivo binding. Using chromatin(More)

SUMMARY As one of the promising techniques in Broadband Wireless Access (BWA), IEEE 802.16 also namely WiMax provides wide-area, high-speed, and non-line-of-sight wireless transmission to support multi-media services. Four service types are defined in the specification of IEEE 802.16 for QoS support. In order to achieve end-to-end multimedia services ,(More)
MOTIVATION ChIP-Seq is the standard method to identify genome-wide DNA-binding sites for transcription factors (TFs) and histone modifications. There is a growing need to analyze experiments with biological replicates, especially for epigenomic experiments where variation among biological samples can be substantial. However, tools that can perform group(More)
To globally survey the changes in transcriptional landscape during terminal erythroid differentiation, we performed RNA sequencing (RNA-seq) on primary human CD34(+) cells after ex vivo differentiation from the earliest into the most mature erythroid cell stages. This analysis identified thousands of novel intergenic and intronic transcripts as well as(More)
The iLamp system is a sensor-enhanced desk lamp with surface-tracking capability based on received light intensity. It consists of two components: lamp and bookmark. The bookmark is a ZigBee-enabled sensor node that can report its sensed light intensity to the lamp with a user-friendly interface and two-way communication capability. The lamp can use its(More)
—In response to the growing demand of photonic systems engineers in industries, this paper proposes a term project that help students gain insight into photonics instrumentation via a grating-based spectrometer. The students are guided through simulations and experiments for the spectral filtering system and then implement the spectrometer using some(More)
In this study, we investigated and compared solitary and collaborative modes of game-based learning in promoting students' science learning and motivation. A total of fifty seventh grade students participated in this study. The results showed that students who played in a solitary or collaborative mode demonstrated improvement in learning outcomes.
