Automatic Analysis of High-Resolution G Bands of Triticum Monococcum Chromosomes Based on the MBNN

Nian Cai; Qing Pan; Kuanghu Hu; Haitao Xiong 2008 Fourth International Conference on Natural Computation, 2008

A method based on the model based neural network (MBNN) is proposed to automatically analyze high-resolution G bands of Triticum monococcum chromosomes. The MBNN-3P is employed to segmented the G-band images. Then five features of chromosomes are extracted from the segmented images. At last, the features are input into the MBNN for classification. The results indicate that the method provides ...


The case for recurrent training on human centrifuges

R. E. van Patten Proceedings of the IEEE 1991 National Aerospace and Electronics Conference NAECON 1991, 1991

Anecdotal evidence and some evidence from both animal and human experimentation indicate that there is a steady decline in G tolerance when exposures to sustained acceleration are lacking or infrequent. Likewise, there is evidence that frequent exposure enhances G tolerance. The author examines some arguments for recurrent centrifuge training of aircrew personnel for the maintenance and enhancement of sustained acceleration ...


Ant colony approach to predict amino acid interaction networks

Omar Gaci; Stefan Balev 2009 World Congress on Nature & Biologically Inspired Computing (NaBIC), 2009

In this paper we introduce the notion of protein interaction network. This is a graph whose vertices are the proteins amino acids and whose edges are the interactions between them. We consider the problem of reconstructing protein's interaction network from its amino acid sequence. An ant colony approach is used to solve this problem.


Dielectrophoretic manipulation of avidin and DNA

D. J. G. Bakewell; M. P. Hughes; J. J. Milner; H. Morgan Proceedings of the 20th Annual International Conference of the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society. Vol.20 Biomedical Engineering Towards the Year 2000 and Beyond (Cat. No.98CH36286), 1998

This paper demonstrates the application of dielectrophoresis (DEP) to the manipulation of biological macromolecules such as avidin and plasmid DNA. We report, for the first time, observations of negative dielectrophoresis of these macromolecules which can be used to perform stable trapping. The basic electrokinetic theory and experimental arrangements for realising DEP in microelectrode structures are described. The paper discusses our ...


THz Deformation Modes in Hydrogen-bond Mediated Biomolecular Networks

R. Wilk; T. Kleine-Ostmann; F. Rutz; J. Grunenberg; H. Niemann; B. Guttler; M. Koch 2006 Joint 31st International Conference on Infrared Millimeter Waves and 14th International Conference on Teraherz Electronics, 2006

The FIR spectra of molecules contain absorption peaks that can serve to identify unknown, illicit or dangerous substances. However, it is still difficult to calculate the absorption spectra of biomolecules in the solid state. We examine the conditions under which a GAUSSIAN modeling becomes realistic by comparing THz TDS and FTIR measurements to DFT results for a set of test ...

  • Biophysics of the Generation of EMG Signals

    This chapter describes the basic concepts of generation and detection of EMG signals. Specific emphasis is devoted to the generation of muscle fiber action potentials at the fiber end plates, their propagation along the sarcolemma, and their extinction at the tendons. The chapter addresses the topics of crosstalk between nearby muscles and selectivity of the recording systems. It discusses the relationships between muscle force and the surface EMG. The EMG signal is generated by the electrical activity of the muscle fibers active during a contraction. The signal sources are the depolarizing and repolarizing zones of the muscle fibers. EMG signal features depend on a number of anatomical, physical, and detection system parameters. Considering all the factors related to the volume conductor and the signal sources that influence the characteristics of the EMG signal, a reliable relation between EMG amplitude and force needs a subject specific and condition specific calibration.
