Antibodies and their fragments are attractive binding proteins because their
high binding strength is generated by several hypervariable loop regions,
and because high-quality libraries can be prepared from the vast gene clus-ters expressed by mammalian lymphocytes. Recent explorations of new
genome sequences and protein structures have revealed various small,
nonantibody scaffold proteins.
Chinese characters that are similar in their pronunciations or in their internal structures are useful for computer-assisted language learning and for psycholinguistic studies. Although it is possible for us to employ imagebased methods to identify visually similar characters, the resulting computational costs can be very high. We propose methods for identifying visually similar Chinese characters by adopting and extending the basic concepts of a proven Chinese input method--Cangjie. We present the methods, illustrate how they work, and discuss their weakness in this paper. ...
Fusidic acid (FA) is a bacteriostatic antibiotic that locks elongation factor G
(EF-G) on the ribosome in a post-translocational state. It is used clinically
against Gram-positive bacteria such as pathogenic strains of Staphylo-coccus aureus, but no structural information has been available for EF-G
from these species.
Metallothioneins (MTs) are cysteine-rich, metal-binding proteins known to
provide protection against cadmium toxicity in mammals. Metal exchange
ions for Cd
ions in metallothioneins is a critical process for
which no mechanistic or structural information is currently available.
Vertebrate metallothioneins are found to contain Zn(II) and variable
amounts of Cu(I),in vivo, and are believed to be important for d
control. To date, structural information is available for the Zn(II) and
Cd(II) forms, but not for the Cu(I) or mixed metal forms. Cu(I) binding to
metallothionein-1 has been investigated by circular dichroism, luminescence
H NMR using two synthetic fragments representing thea- and the
We propose a statistical dialogue analysis model to determine discourse structures as well as speech acts using maximum entropy model. The model can automatically acquire probabilistic discourse knowledge from a discourse tagged corpus to resolve ambiguities. We propose the idea of tagging discourse segment boundaries to represent the structural information of discourse. Using this representation we can effectively combine speech act analysis and discourse structure analysis in one framework.
In Semantic Role Labeling (SRL), it is reasonable to globally assign semantic roles due to strong dependencies among arguments. Some relations between arguments signiﬁcantly characterize the structural information of argument structure. In this paper, we concentrate on thematic hierarchy that is a rank relation restricting syntactic realization of arguments. A loglinear model is proposed to accurately identify thematic rank between two arguments.
In this paper we present a novel, customizable IE paradigm that takes advantage of predicate-argument structures. We also introduce a new way of automatically identifying predicate argument structures, which is central to our IE paradigm. It is based on: (1) an extended set of features; and (2) inductive decision tree learning. The experimental results prove our claim that accurate predicate-argument structures enable high quality IE results.
JBuilder provides several features and incorporates various tools to
provide support for the Extensible Markup Language (XML). XML is a
platform-independent method of structuring information. Because XML
separates the content of a document from the structure, it can be a useful
means of exchanging data. For example, XML can be used to transfer data
between databases and Java programs.

This book is written for marine structural engineers and naval architects, as well as mechanical
engineers and civil engineers who work on struch~ral design. The preparation of the book is
motivated by extensive use of the finite element analysis and dynamidfatigue analysis, fast paced
advances in computer and information technology, and application of risk and reliability methods.
In this tutorial you will learn about C Programming - Structures and Unions, initializing structure, assigning values to members, functions and structures, passing structure to functions, passing entire function to functions, arrays of structure, structure within a structure and union.
Structures are slightly different from the variable types you have been using till now. Structures are data types by themselves. When you define a structure or union, you are creating a custom data type.
Previous editions of Neuroanatomy have endeavored 1) to provide a
structural basis for understanding the function of the central nervous
system; 2) to emphasize points of clinical relevance through use
of appropriate terminology and examples; and 3) to integrate neuroanatomical
and clinical information in a format that will meet the educational
needs of the user. The goal of the sixth edition is to continue
this philosophy and to present structural information and concepts in
an even more clinically useful and relevant format.
The Sixth Edition of Dr. Haines's best-selling neuroanatomy atlas features a stronger clinical emphasis, with significantly expanded clinical information and correlations. More than 110 new images--including MRI, CT, MR angiography, color line drawings, and brain specimens--highlight anatomical-clinical correlations. Internal spinal cord and brainstem morphology are presented in a new format that shows images in both anatomical and clinical orientations, correlating this anatomy exactly with how the brain and its functional systems are viewed in the clinical setting.
Structural Bodywork has been written to provide an advanced
introduction to the field of structural bodywork. This is the
book that the author wished had been available to him when
he embarked on his career as a practitioner in the field. At that
time mu.ch of this information was available only in medically
oriented books that were often too technical or jargonistic for
the non-medical reader to understand, or in much-photocopied
'underground compendia' originating from handouts distributed
to those attending training courses.
Typical algorithms and data structures textbooks are seven or eight hundred pages long, include chapters
about software engineering and the programming language used in the book, and include appendices
with yet more information about the programming language. Often they include lengthy case studies
with tens of pages of specifications and code. Frequently they are hardcover books printed in two colors;
sometimes they have sidebars with various sorts of supplementary material.
The field of health informatics is taking center stage in the 21st
century. As the information age evolves into the knowledge age, the
enabling technologies will give us access to the data, information, and
knowledge we need, whatever our discipline or field. Within nursing and
across the healthcare team, we will look to these enablers to strengthen
our ability to act knowledgeably on behalf of — and in concert with —
the patient. Although informatics has already changed the way we
practice our professions, we will continue our journey of transformation
The business of government is complex. What matters to the public about performance of government
cannot meaningfully captured in one, or even a dozen performance measures. Given the sophisticated
demands for information from a wide range of stakeholders, including Parliament, government must
respond in kind with world-class performance measurement and reporting systems.
Performance information is a cornerstone of our commitment to modernise government.
The database community has insulated itself from the information
retrieval community, and has largely eschewed dealing with
messy data types like time and space (not everyone has, just most
of us.) We had our hands full dealing with the “simple stuff” of
numbers, strings, and relational operators on them. But, real ap-
plications have massive amounts of text data, have temporal prop-
erties, and have spatial properties.
The DBMS extensibility offered by integrating languages with the
DBMS makes it relatively easy to add data types...
