This paper presents an unsupervised distribution-free change detection approach for synthetic aperture radar (SAR) images based on an image fusion strategy and a novel fuzzy clustering algorithm. The image fusion technique is introduced to generate a difference image by using complementary information from a mean-ratio image and a log-ratio image. In order(More)
As one of the fundamental infrastructures for cloud computing, data center networks (DCN) have recently been studied extensively. We currently use pure software-based systems, FPGA based platforms, e.g., NetFPGA, or OpenFlow switches, to implement and evaluate various DCN designs including topology design, control plane and routing, and congestion control.(More)
The human obesity susceptibility gene, FTO, encodes a protein that is homologous to the DNA repair AlkB protein. The AlkB family proteins utilize iron(II), alpha-ketoglutarate (alpha-KG) and dioxygen to perform oxidative repair of alkylated nucleobases in DNA and RNA. We demonstrate here the oxidative demethylation of 3-methylthymine (3-meT) in(More)
In this paper, we present a simple yet efficient and effective multi-resolution approach to gray-scale and rotation invariant texture classification. Given a texture image, we at first convolve it with J Gabor filters sharing the same parameters except the parameter of orientation. Then by binarizing the obtained responses, we can get J bits at each(More)
Ketamine exerts rapid and robust antidepressant properties in both animal models and depressed patients and tramadol possesses potential antidepressant effects. Brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) is an important biomarker for mood disorders and tropomyosin-related kinase B (TrkB) is a high affinity catalytic receptor for BDNF.We hypothesized that(More)
A scheme was developed to elucidate the dissipation behaviors of the two enantiomers of the herbicide lactofen in soils using a normal-phase high-performance liquid chromatograph (HPLC) with UV detector and a column with a cellulose-tri-(3,5-dimethylphenylcarbamate)-based chiral stationary phase (CDMPC-CSP). Eight soils with a wide range of soil properties(More)
A novel microextraction method termed ionic liquid dispersive liquid-liquid microextraction (IL-DLLME) combining high-performance liquid chromatography with diode array detection (HPLC-DAD) was developed for the determination of insecticides in water samples. Four heterocyclic insecticides (fipronil, chlorfenapyr, buprofezin, and hexythiazox) were selected(More)
Many pesticides in use are chiral compounds containing stereoisomers. However, the environmental behavior and fate of such compounds with respect to enantioselectivity so far has received little attention. In this study, the degradation of lactofen and its main metabolites (acifluorfen, an achiral compound; desethyl lactofen, a chiral compound) in sediment(More)
