Data Set Used
BACKGROUND Constitutive promoters that ensure sustained and high level gene expression are basic research tools that have a wide range of applications, including studies of human embryology and drug discovery in human embryonic stem cells (hESCs). Numerous cellular/viral promoters that ensure sustained gene expression in various cell types have been… (More)
—In surveillance systems, the situation awareness of decision makers is often a crucial point in making appropriate decisions. For supporting the situation assessment process, modules performing an automatic interpretation of the observed environment can be used. However, there is still a need for an optimal solution for the definition of such modules. In… (More)
BACKGROUND Pluripotency and self-renewal of human embryonic stem cells (hESCs) is mediated by a complex interplay between extra- and intracellular signaling pathways, which regulate the expression of pluripotency-specific transcription factors. The homeodomain transcription factor NANOG plays a central role in maintaining hESC pluripotency, but the precise… (More)
On behalf of the International Society for Stem Cell Research (ISSCR) and the Stem Cell Reports' editorial team, we would like to extend a warm welcome to you and present the inaugural issue of our journal, Stem Cell Reports. Stem Cell Reports is the ISSCR's new journal, a highly visible, open access forum, accelerating the speed with which advances and new… (More)
The International Society for Stem Cell Research hosted an exciting meeting on stem cell-based translational medicine in Florence, Italy in September 2013. This report gives an overview of recent advances and breakthroughs presented at the meeting.
Pervasive Environments (PE) collect and process a massive amount of person-related and sensitive information. Data collected by a single sensor is in most cases not adequate to provide premium services. Information gathered must rather be combined to offer real benefits. The fused data must be secured by access controls to ensure privacy of the users and… (More)
