Besides high accuracy, stability of feature selection has recently attracted strong interest in knowledge discovery from high-dimensional data. In this study, we present a theoretical framework about the relationship between the stability and accuracy of feature selection based on a formal bias-variance decomposition of feature selection error. The(More)
Feature selection from gene expression microarray data is a widely used technique for selecting candidate genes in various cancer studies. Besides predictive ability of the selected genes, an important aspect in evaluating a selection method is the stability of the selected genes. Experts instinctively have high confidence in the result of a selection(More)
The gene cloning, purification, properties, kinetics, and antifungal activity of chitinase from marine Streptomyces sp. DA11 associated with South China sponge Craniella australiensis were investigated. Alignment analysis of the amino acid sequence deduced from the cloned conserved 451 bp DNA sequence shows the chitinase belongs to ChiC type with 80%(More)
Shear stress, especially low shear stress (LowSS), plays an important role in vascular remodeling during atherosclerosis. Endothelial cells (ECs), which are directly exposed to shear stress, convert mechanical stimuli into intracellular signals and interact with the underlying vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMCs). The interactions between ECs and VSMCs(More)
Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) are promising additives to polymeric materials due to the potential for their enhancement of the structural, mechanical and electronic properties of the resulting composite. However, improvements in properties are by no means guaranteed, and the results are often sensitive to the particular polymer chosen, in addition to the quantity(More)
Cytomegalovirus (CMV) can be classified into 4 subgroups based on genotype variation of the glycoprotein B (gB) encoded by UL55 gene. Little is known about the CMV gB genotype distribution and its clinical implication in patients who receive hematopoietic stem cell transplant (HSCT) in China. In this study, which comprises 101 HSCT patients with CMV(More)
BACKGROUND & AIMS HBV immune escape represents a challenge to prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of hepatitis B. Here, we analyzed the molecular and clinical characteristics of HBV immune escape mutants in a Chinese cohort of chronically infected patients. METHODS Two hundred sixteen patients with HBsAg and anti-HBs were studied, with one hundred(More)
Tianjin duliu mature vinegar was one of famous Chinese traditional vinegars. The unique flavor and taste of vinegar are mainly generated by the multitudinous microorganisms during fermentation. In this research, the composition and succession of microbial communities in the entire solid-state fermentation were investigated, including starter daqu and acetic(More)
This study was designed to evaluate the immunogenicity and the protective efficacy of a divalent fusion DNA vaccine encoding both the Brucella abortus L7/L12 protein (ribosomal protein) and Omp16 protein (outer membrane lipoprotein), designated pcDNA3.1-L7/L12-Omp16. Intramuscular injection of this divalent DNA vaccine into BALB/c mice elicited markedly(More)
