    Abstract: The measurement of tree similarity based on structure comparison has been long used in diverse fields. We applied the evolutionary tree method to study the cancer genome. Cancer evolutionary trees, representing cancer diversity, provide information on the clonal evolution and the clinical outcome of cancer patients. This study considered 107 colore... Show More

    Abstract: In recent years, great progress has been made in the research of RNA function, and more and more RNA functions have been discovered. The function of RNA is highly dependent on its 3D structure, the RNA tertiary structure includes the RNA 3D structure and RNA tertiary interaction, so the RNA tertiary structure prediction has also attracted extensive...

    Abstract: Prey fragmentation and transport modalities were studied in Myrmicaria opaciventris, Platythyrea conradti, Cremtogaster sp., Crematogaster clariventris, Tetramorium aculeatum and Oecophylla longinoda, six tropical ant species with varying levels of adaptation to foraging in the tree canopy. Termites and grasshoppers of different sizes were used as ... Show More
