The unique anatomical features of turtles have raised unanswered questions about the origin of their unique body plan. We generated and analyzed draft genomes of the soft-shell turtle (Pelodiscus sinensis) and the green sea turtle (Chelonia mydas); our results indicated the close relationship of the turtles to the bird-crocodilian lineage, from which they(More)
—A combined spatial-and temporal-domain wavelet shrinkage algorithm for video denoising is presented in this paper. The spatial-domain denoising technique is a selective wavelet shrinkage method which uses a two-threshold criteria to exploit the geometry of the wavelet subbands of each video frame, and each frame of the image sequence is spatially denoised(More)
— Support Vector Machines (SVM) is originally designed for binary classification. The conventional way to extend it to multi-class scenario is to decompose an M-class problem into a series of two-class problems, for which one-against-all is the earliest and one of the most widely used implementations. One drawback of this method, however, is that when the(More)
A new cell line (TSHKC) derived from half-smooth tongue sole (Cynoglossus semilaevis) head kidney was developed. The cell line was subcultured for 40 passages over a period of 360 days. The cell line was optimally maintained in minimum essential medium supplemented with HEPES, antibiotics, fetal bovine serum, 2-Mercaptoethanol (2-Me), sodium pyruvate and(More)
A quality constrained compression algorithm based on Discrete Wavelet Transform (DWT) is proposed. The spatial-frequency decomposition property of DWT provides possibility for not only the new compression algorithm, but also a frequency-domain quality assessment method that can be executed in real-time. For this propose, a new quality metric in the wavelet(More)
