The number of Circulating Tumor Cells (CTCs) in blood provides an indication of disease progression and tumor response to chemotherapeutic agents. Hence, routine detection and enumeration of CTCs in clinical blood samples have significant applications in early cancer diagnosis and treatment monitoring. In this paper, we investigate two clas-sifiers for(More)
BACKGROUND Pyropia haitanensis and P. yezoensis are two economically important marine crops that are also considered to be research models to study the physiological ecology of intertidal seaweed communities, evolutionary biology of plastids, and the origins of sexual reproduction. This plastid genome information will facilitate study of breeding,(More)
We investigate the problem of checking class attendance by detecting, tracking and recognizing multiple student faces in classroom videos taken by instructors. Instead of recognizing each individual face independently, first, we perform multi-object tracking to associate detected faces (including false positives) into face tracklets (each tracklet contains(More)
Pyropia yezoensis is a model organism often used to investigate the mechanisms underlying stress tolerance in intertidal zones. The digital gene expression (DGE) approach was used to characterize a genome-wide comparative analysis of differentially expressed genes (DEGs) that influence the physiological, developmental or biochemical processes in samples(More)
BACKGROUND The seagrass Zostera marina is a monocotyledonous angiosperm belonging to a polyphyletic group of plants that can live submerged in marine habitats. Zostera marina L. is one of the most common seagrasses and is considered a cornerstone of marine plant molecular ecology research and comparative studies. However, the mechanisms underlying its(More)
Quantitative real-time PCR (qRT-PCR) is frequently used for gene expression analysis. The selection of reference genes is required for normalization of the variation to avoid misinterpretation of experimental results and erroneous analyses. Pyropia yezoensis, growing in the intertidal zone, is an economically important seaweed. Although this intertidal(More)
This study investigated a new fungal disease that attacks Pyropia yezoensis, an economically important red alga that is extensively cultured in China. An incidence was found in a P. yezoensis farm during mid to end November 2012 at Haizhou Bay, Jiangshu Province, China. Histopathology revealed that the naturally infected thalli were overwhelmed by a fungus,(More)
Pyropia haitanensis is an economically important marine crop grown in harsh intertidal habitats of southern China; it is also an excellent model system for studying mechanisms of stress tolerance. To understand the molecular mechanisms underlying osmotic tolerance and adaptation to intertidal environments, a comprehensive analysis of genome-wide gene(More)
