Forecasting Caspian Sea level changes using satellite altimetry data (June 1992–December 2013) based on evolutionary support vector regression algorithms and gene expression programming
Chung-Yen Kuo

The Caspian Sea, which is surrounded by five countries, including Azerbaijan, Iran, Kazakhstan, Russia, and Turkmenistan, is the largest enclosed inland water body in the world. Because of the interactions of geographical environment and meteorological phenomena such as river discharge, evaporation, precipitation, and water temperature, the seasonal and interannual Caspian Sea level variations …

The genomic substrate for adaptive radiation in African cichlid fish.
N. Okada

Cichlid fishes in Great Lakes of East Africa are famous for their diversification and replicated adaptive radiation during evolution. To elucidate their mechanisms, in this article we determined genome sequences of several cichlid fishes from different lakes including Tanganyika, Malawi and Victoria together with those of river origins. The paper also includes comprehensive molecular data that …

Autophagy and microRNA in hepatitis B virus-related hepatocellular carcinoma
Hsiao-Sheng Liu

Over 350 million people in the world are the carriers of hepatitis B virus (HBV). The symptoms of HBV infection include cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). On average about 25% of infected patients, HBV infection further induces liver tumor formation. Intensive research efforts have been focused on the mechanisms by which HBV affects the host cell to promote viral replication and its …

Polyglot Speech Synthesis Based on Cross-Lingual Frame Selection Using Auditory and Articulatory Features
Chung-Hsien Wu

This study proposes an approach for polyglot speech synthesis based on cross-lingual frame selection using only mono-lingual speaker corpora. The basic idea is to generate artificial parallel utterances based on optimal frame selection, and use the generated utterances to adapt a synthesis model in a language foreign to the target speaker. As a result, a polyglot synthesis system can be developed …

Ionospheric Space Weather and Aviation
Chia-Hung Chen

As the typhoon will cause the disaster to endanger our human life, the solar geomagnetic storm will cause the variation of plasma in the high atmosphere region (around 50 ~ 1000 km altitude) to affect the radio communication. For a severe geomagnetic storm event, the satellite communication will further be interfered or broken down and the accuracy of navigation positioning will also be affected …
