Based on POJ (PKU Judge Online), an online judge system for ACM/ICPC in Peking University, we develop a system called Programming Grid (PG), which is aimed at computer-aided education (CAE) for programming courses. PG is a course-centered system for CAE, while POJ is a problem-centered system for programming training. PG system designs many resources to(More)
BACKGROUND MicroRNAs act as posttranscriptional regulators of gene expression in many biological processes. Their deregulations occur commonly in gastric cancer (GC). Although DNA methylation constitutes an important mechanism for microRNA deregulation in cancer, this field largely remains unexplored. METHODOLOGY/PRINCIPAL FINDINGS Total RNA was extracted(More)
A parametric study of so-called "super growth" of single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) was done by using combinatorial libraries of iron/aluminum oxide catalysts. Millimeter-thick forests of nanotubes grew within 10 min, and those grown by using catalysts with a thin Fe layer (about 0.5 nm) were SWNTs. Although nanotube forests grew under a wide range of(More)
We present the successful synthesis of aligned 13 C labeled single-walled carbon nanotube (SWNT) arrays from alcohol by a modified no-flow chemical vapor deposition (CVD) method which makes possible efficient growth using a small amount of carbon source. Synthesis of high-quality SWNTs by this alternate method was confirmed by Resonance Raman spectroscopy,(More)
BACKGROUND It remains important to understand the biology and identify biomarkers for less studied cancers like testicular cancer. The purpose of this study was to determine the methylation frequency of several cancer-related genes in different histological types of testicular cancer and normal testis tissues (NT). METHODS DNA was isolated from 43(More)
The bright exciton emission of carbon nanotubes is appealing for optoelectronic devices and fundamental studies of light-matter interaction in one-dimensional nanostructures. However, to date, the photophysics of excitons in carbon nanotubes is largely affected by extrinsic effects. Here we perform time-resolved photoluminescence measurements over 14 orders(More)
An in situ optical absorbance technique was used to monitor the growth of vertically aligned single-walled carbon nanotubes (VA-SWNTs) at various temperatures and pressures. The effects of the growth temperature and ethanol pressure on the initial growth rate and catalyst lifetime were investigated. It was found that the ideal pressure for VA-SWNT synthesis(More)
Measles is caused by measles virus belonging to genus Morbillivirus of the family Paramyxoviridae. Vaccination has played a critical role in controlling measles infection worldwide. However, in the recent years, outbreaks of measles infection still occur in many developing countries. Here, we report an outbreak of measles among healthcare workers and among(More)
The migratory locust, Locusta migratoria manilensis, is an immensely destructive agricultural pest that forms a devastating and voracious gregarious phase. The fungal insect pathogen, Metarhizium acridum, is a specialized locust pathogen that has been used as a potent mycoinsecticide for locust control. Little, however, is known about locust immune tissue,(More)
