In recent studies, non-coding protein RNAs have been identified as microRNA that can be used as biomarkers for early diagnosis and treatment of cancer, that decrease mortality in cancer. A microRNA may target hundreds or thousands of genes and a gene may regulate several microRNAs, so determining which microRNA is associated with which cancer is a big challenge. Many computational methods have been performed to detect micoRNAs association with cancer, but more effort is needed with higher accuracy. Increasing research has shown that relationship between microRNAs and TFs play a significant role in the diagnosis of cancer. Therefore, we developed a new computational framework (CAMIRADA) to identify cancer-related microRNAs based on the relationship between microRNAs and disease genes (DG) in the protein network, the functional relationships between microRNAs and Transcription Factors (TF) on

22:06 WhatReallyHappened.com‘Elixir of Immortality’ Uncovered in 2,000-Year-Old Chinese Tomb

A yellowish liquid found in a bronze pot dating back some 2,000 years is not wine, as Chinese archaeologists initially thought. It’s actually an “elixir of immortality” concocted during ancient times.
The bronze pot was discovered last October by archaeologists working at the tomb of a noble family in the Henan Province of central China. The 210-square-meter site in the city of Luoyang dates back to the Western Han Dynasty (202 BCE to 8 CE) and, in addition to the pot, yielded the well-preserved remains of a nobleman, painted clay pots, materials made from jade and bronze, and a lamp in the shape of a wild goose.
Intriguingly, the pot contained 3.5 liters (0.9 gallons) of a yellowish liquid exhibiting a very strong alcohol-like smell. At the time, archaeologists figured it was wine—a conclusion consistent with other discoveries dating back to the same period. Back then, wine made from
