Use of a Hierarchical Oligonucleotide Primer Extension Approach for Multiplexed Relative Abundance Analysis of Methanogens in Anaerobic Digestion Systems
Jer-Horng Wu

The anaerobic digestion process can degrade the organic substance in waste and wastewater into methane as a renewable energy source. The process is usually operated using a reactor under specific conditions to enrich trophic groups of microorganisms, with which the complex substance is hydrolyzed and fermented to the methanogenic precursors for methane formation. Owing to the key position in the …

Deciphering mycorrhizal fungi in cultivated Phalaenopsis microbiome with next-generation sequencing of multiple barcodes
Tzen-Yuh Chiang

Traditionally, scientists depend on in vitro and in vivo culturing to explore fungal communities. Most species remain unculturable, and rare strains can be easily unexploited in culture. Technically optimizing culture conditions for individual species, especially when the species composition of a community remains unknown, is time-consuming and difficult. Next-generation sequencing, a huge-scale …

Estimation of physical functional disabilities and long-term care needs for patients under maintenance hemodialysis
Jung-Der Wang

Background and objectives: Physical functional disabilities in hemodialysis (HD) patients may increase their mortality and long-term care needs. This study aims to estimate the changes of proportion for different physical functional disabilities and the lifelong care needs along time after beginning HD.

Methods: We used a population-based cohort consisting of 84,657 incident HD …

Two-Level Hierarchical Alignment for Semi-Coupled HMM-Based Audiovisual Emotion Recognition with Temporal Course
Chung-Hsien Wu

A complete emotional expression typically contains a complex temporal course[1] in face-to-face natural conversation. In this study, we focused on exploring the temporal evolution of an emotional expression for audio-visual emotion recognition. A novel data fusion method with respect to the temporal course modeling scheme named Two-Level Hierarchical Alignment-Based Semi-Coupled Hidden Markov model …
