New SARS-CoV-2 mutants have been continuously indentified with enhanced transmission ever since its outbreak in early 2020. As an RNA virus, SARS-CoV-2 has a high mutation rate due to the low fidelity of RNA polymerase. To study the single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) dynamics of SARS-CoV-2, 158 SNPs with high confidence were identified by deep meta-transcriptomic sequencing, and the most common SNP type was C > T. Analyses of intra-host population diversity revealed that intra-host quasispecies’...

Vibration-Based Fault Detection in Drone using Artificial Intelligence

Mohamad Hazwan Mohd Ghazali
Recent years have seen a huge increase in the study of drones. There is a lot of published articles regarding drone, focusing on control optimization, fault detection, safety mechanisms, etc. In fault detection, most of the studies focused on the effects of faulty propellers and rotors, and there is very limited academic research on drone arms. In this paper, a fault detection based on the vibration of the multirotor arms using artificial intelligence (AI) is...

A further look at quantitative trait loci for growth and fatness traits in a White Duroc × Erhualian F3 intercross population

Zheng Deng, Tao Huang, Guorong Yan, Bin Yang, Zhiyan Zhang, Shijun Xiao, Huashui Ai & Lusheng Huang
Genetic analysis of porcine growth and fatness traits is beneficial to the swine industry and provides a reference to understand human obesity. Here, we obtained 29 growth and fatness traits for 473 individuals from a White Duroc × Erhualian F3 intercross population. Basic statistical analyses showed that: (1) Positive correlations between different-stage body weights were detected, the shorter the time interval the stronger the correlation. (2) Strong correlations existed in the paired fatness traits. (3)...

A Unified Framework for Specification Tests of Continuous Treatment Effect Models

Wei Huang, Oliver Linton & Zheng Zhang
We propose a general framework for the specification testing of continuous treatment effect models. We assume a general residual function, which includes the average and quantile treatment effect models as special cases. The null models are identified under the unconfoundedness condition and contain a nonparametric weighting function. We propose a test statistic for the null model in which the weighting function is estimated by solving an expanding set of moment equations. We establish the asymptotic...

Battery discharge characteristics for IEEE 802.15.4 based radio load profile

Omer Ali, Mohamad Khairi Ishak, Chia Ai Ooi & Muhammad Kamran Liaquat Bhatti
This dataset reports the discharge profiles of 4 battery chemistries under IEEE 802.15.4 radio load profiles. The batteries were independently subjected to a five-step method to record the discharge characteristics. These discharge currents, their effect on battery capacity, and surface temperature may affect the overall battery lifetime, which was the major aim to discover. The following batteries were used in these experiements Tag Manufacturer Model Battery Chemistry Capacity (mAh) Nominal Voltage C-Rate Batt1 Powerizer MH-AAA1000APZ...

Implementing social network analysis to understand the socio-ecology of wildlife co-occurrence and joint interactions with humans in anthropogenic environments

Krishna Balasubramaniam, Stefano Kaburu, Pascal Marty, Brianne Beisner, Eliza Bliss-Moreau, Malgorzata Arlet, Nadine Ruppert, Ahmad Ismail, Sahrul Anuar Mohd Sah, Lalith Mohan, Sandeep Rattan, Ullasa Kodandaramaiah & Brenda McCowan
1. Human population expansion into wildlife habitats has increased interest in the behavioral ecology of human-wildlife interactions. To date, however, the socio-ecological factors that determine whether, when or where wild animals take risks by interacting with humans and anthropogenic factors still remains unclear. 2. We adopt a comparative approach to address this gap, using social network analysis (SNA). SNA, increasingly implemented to determine human impact on wildlife ecology, can be a powerful tool to understand...

Deep eutectic solvent-based emulsification liquid-liquid microextraction coupled with HPLC-UV for the analysis of phenoxy acid herbicides in paddy field water samples

, Nurul Yani Rahim, Rania Edrees Adam Mohammad, Noorfatimah Yahaya & Mazidatulakmam Miskam
An emulsification liquid-liquid microextraction (ELLME) method was successfully developed using phenolic based deep eutectic solvent (DES) as an extraction solvent for the determination of phenoxy acid herbicides, dicamba and MCPA in environmental water samples. Five different phenolics based DES were successfully synthesized by using phenol (DES 1), 2-chlorophenol (DES 2), 3-chlorophenol (DES 3), 4-chlorophenol (DES 4) and 3,4-dichlorophenol (DES 6) as the hydrogen-bond donor (HBD) and choline chloride as the hydrogen-bond acceptor (HBA). The DESs...
