Improving Structural Variation Detection Accuracy in Repetitive Regions Using Hybrid Algorithms and SFS Signatures
SVDSS combines ideas from traditional mapping-based and assembly-based SV detection algorithms with the novel mapping-free Substring-free Sample-specific Strings (SFS) framework to achieve a 15% recall improvement over state-of-the-art methods in detecting SVs in repetitive regions of the genome.
Following the draconian measures already put in place throughout the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic, a very relaxed approach has been recently adopted by Chinese health authorities in order to stop the people's angry protests against the "zero Covid" strategy.
Reactive Metal Boride Nanoparticles Trap Lipopolysaccharide and Peptidoglycan for Bacteria-Infected Wound Healing
Antibacterial wound healing approaches often target bacteria but overlook the inflammation response caused by products released by dead bacteria. The authors develop MB nanoparticles to prevent both infection and excessive inflammation by trapping the key component of bacteria, LPS/PGN.
