[HTML][HTML] Mapping copy number variation by population scale genome sequencing

…, MP Stromberg, AM Stütz, AE Urban, JA Walker, J Wu… - Nature, 2011 -
Summary Genomic structural variants (SVs) are abundant in humans, differing from other
variation classes in extent, origin, and functional impact. Despite progress in SV
characterization, the nucleotide resolution architecture of most SVs remains unknown. We

Demographic history and rare allele sharing among human populations

…, X Guo, Y Li, R Luo, S Tai, H Wu… - Proceedings of the …, 2011 - National Acad Sciences
Abstract High-throughput sequencing technology enables population-level surveys of
human genomic variation. Here, we examine the joint allele frequency distributions across
continental human populations and present an approach for combining complementary

Highly active V–TiO 2 for photocatalytic degradation of methyl orange

S Liu, T Xie, Z Chen, J Wu - Applied Surface Science, 2009 - Elsevier
Two kinds of vanadium-doped TiO2 powders photocatalysts were prepared by sol–gel
method in even doping and uneven doping modes, and were characterized by X-ray
photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS), X-ray diffraction (XRD), transmission electron microscopy

[HTML][HTML] Copy Number Variation detection from 1000 Genomes Project exon capture sequencing data

J Wu, KR Grzeda, C Stewart… - BMC …, 2012 - bmcbioinformatics.biomedcentral …
Background DNA capture technologies combined with high-throughput sequencing now
enable cost-effective, deep-coverage, targeted sequencing of complete exomes. This is well
suited for SNP discovery and genotyping. However there has been little attention devoted to

[HTML][HTML] Deoxycholic acid induces the overexpression of intestinal mucin, MUC2, via NF-kB signaling pathway in human esophageal adenocarcinoma cells

JT Wu, J Gong, J Geng, YX Song - BMC cancer, 2008 -
Background Mucin alterations are a common feature of esophageal neoplasia, and
alterations in MUC2 mucin have been associated with tumor progression in the esophagus.
Bile acids have been linked to esophageal adenocarcinoma and mucin secretion, but their

[HTML][HTML] Tangram: a comprehensive toolbox for mobile element insertion detection

J Wu, WP Lee, A Ward, JA Walker… - BMC …, 2014 -
Background Mobile elements (MEs) constitute greater than 50% of the human genome as a
result of repeated insertion events during human genome evolution. Although most of these
elements are now fixed in the population, some MEs, including ALU, L1, SVA and HERV-K

Fine mapping of the awn gene on chromosome 4 in rice by association and linkage analyses

GL Hu, DL Zhang, HQ Pan, B Li, JT Wu, XY Zhou… - Chinese science …, 2011 - Springer
Abstract Awnness is a key trait in rice domestication, yet no studies have been conducted on
fine mapping or association mapping of the rice awn gene. In this study, we investigated the
awnness and genotype of a core collection of 303 cultivated rice varieties and a BC 5 F 2

TiO 2/V–TiO 2 composite photocatalysts with an n–n heterojunction semiconductor structure

S Liu, J Wu, X Liu, R Jiang - Journal of Molecular Catalysis A: Chemical, 2010 - Elsevier
Highly active TiO2/V–TiO2 composite photocatalysts with an n–n heterojunction
semiconductor structure have been prepared by mixing TiO2 sol with sol–gel derived V–
TiO2 powders that have adsorbed ammonium oleate in advance, followed by drying and

[PDF][PDF] The influence of mineral aggregates and binder volumetrics on bitumen ageing

J Wu - Nottingham: University of Nottingham, 2009 -
ABSTRACT Age hardening of bitumen has long been perceived as one of the main factors
that can significantly affect the durability of bituminous paving materials. When the bitumen
is age hardened, the asphalt mixture will become brittle and its ability to support traffic-

[PDF][PDF] Nitrogen-doped graphene-rich catalysts derived from heteroatom polymers for oxygen reduction in nonaqueous lithium–O2 battery cathodes

G Wu, NH Mack, W Gao, S Ma, R Zhong, J Han… - ACS nano, 2012 - Citeseer
ABSTRACT In this work, we present a synthesis approach for nitrogen-doped graphene-
sheet-like nanostructures via the graphitization of a heteroatom polymer, in particular,
polyaniline, under the catalysis of a cobalt species using multiwalled carbon nanotubes
