The paper is concerned with learning to rank, which is to construct a model or a function for ranking objects. Learning to rank is useful for document retrieval, collaborative filtering, and many other applications. Several methods for learning to rank have been proposed, which take object pairs as 'instances' in learning. We refer to them as the pairwise(More)
We present an approach to efficiently detect the 2D pose of multiple people in an image. The approach uses a nonparametric representation, which we refer to as Part Affinity Fields (PAFs), to learn to associate body parts with individuals in the image. The architecture encodes global context, allowing a greedy bottom-up parsing step that maintains high(More)
A novel technology to obtain highly efficient biosorbent from the endophytes of a hyperaccumulator is reported. This technology is more convenient than the traditional method of obtaining biosorbents by experimentally screening many types of biomass by trial and error. Using this technology, endophytic fungus (EF) LSE10 was isolated from the cadmium(More)
DNA-dependent protein kinase (DNA-PK), including Ku80, Ku70 and DNA-PK catalytic subunit (DNA-PKcs), is the key protein in non-homologous end-joining (NHEJ) after DNA double-strand breaks (DSBs) appear. In this study, small hairpin interfering RNAs (siRNAs) targeting Ku80 and DNA- PKcs were used both individually and in combination, to explore the effects(More)
OBJECTIVES To identify plasma microRNA (miRNA) markers of pancreatic cancer (PC). BACKGROUND Accurate pretreatment diagnosis of PC remains challenging, whether plasma miRNAs could be used as biomarkers in PC remains unknown. METHODS In this multiphase multicenter study, peripheral blood samples were obtained preoperatively in 3 phases: the discovery(More)
A wireless portable monitoring system for respiratory diseases using microsensors is proposed. The monitoring system consists of two sensor nodes integrating with Bluetooth transmitters that measure user's respiratory airflow, blood oxygen saturation, and body posture. The utility of micro-hot-film flow sensor makes the monitor can acquire comprehensive(More)
Somaclonal variation is a major concern to many applications of plant cell and tissue culture techniques, yet it could be a useful source of variation for plant genetic improvement. High frequencies of somaclonal variants were reported in caladium, but little was known about changes in caladium somaclonal variants at the cellular and molecular levels.(More)
In Total Hip Replacement (THR), inaccurate measurement of Anterior Pelvic Plane (APP), which is usually used as a reference plane, will lead to malposition of the acetabular prosthesis. As a result, the risk of impingement, dislocation and wear will increase and the safe range of motion will be limited. In order to acquire the accurate pose of APP, a(More)
The integration of omic data with metabolic networks has been demonstrated to be an effective approach to elucidate the underlying metabolic mechanisms in life. Because the metabolic pathways of Thermoanaerobacter tengcongensis (T. tengcongensis) are incomplete, we used a 1-(13)C-glucose culture to monitor intracellular isotope-labeled metabolites by GC/MS(More)
Aldo-keto reductase 1B10 (AKR1B10) is a secretory protein that is upregulated with tumorigenic transformation of human mammary epithelial cells. This study demonstrated that AKR1B10 was overexpressed in 20 (71.4%) of 28 ductal carcinomas in situ, 184 (83.6%) of 220 infiltrating carcinomas and 28 (87.5%) of 32 recurrent tumors. AKR1B10 expression in breast(More)
