BACKGROUND Skin cancer is the most common cancer in the United States, and ultraviolet B (UVB) radiation-induced DNA damage is the major environmental factor underlying skin cancer development. p21, a p53-inducible protein, plays a key role in the cellular response to UVB-induced DNA damage. MATERIAL AND METHODS Through p21 silencing and overexpression,(More)
This paper presents a real time image warping module implemented in hardware. A look-up table (LUT) based reverse mapping is used to relate the source image to the warped image. Frame buffers or line buffers are often used to temporally store the source image. However these methods do not take the underlying pattern of the reverse mapping coordinates into(More)
The cluster head is playing an important role in clustering wireless sensor networks. If a malicious or compromised node is elected as the cluster head, it’ll be a disaster to the whole network. In light of this, we present a trust cluster head election algorithm based on ant colony system. Experiments and results demonstrate our framework can(More)
Certain pseudogenes may regulate their protein-coding cousins by competing for miRNAs and play an active biological role in cancer. However, few studies have focused on the association of genetic variations in pseudogenes with cancer prognosis. We selected six potentially functional single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in cancer-related pseudogenes, and(More)
Although network coding can make network achieve the maximum multicast rate, it always brings additional overheads. It is necessary to minimize unnecessary overhead while achieving the desired throughput in a multicast scenario. Current solutions are mostly based on genetic algorithms that aim to reach the least number of coding links. The drawback of the(More)
