    Polychlorinated biphenyls are a group of hydrocarbons that are composed of two benzene rings and chlorine admixture on it. Due to their special properties, these materials were added to oils for years to improve their properties. These compounds have many industrial applications in various industries, such as the production of fluorescent lamps, adhesives, dyes, and especially as a cooling and insulating liquid as the Askarel oil in power transformers. Due to the properties of these compounds, which include stability and bioaccumulation in fatty tissues, the wide use of these substances causes environmental contamination and leads to a variety of cancerous diseases. Among the cleaning...

    Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) includes different neurodevelopmental disorders characterized by deficits in social communication, and restricted, repetitive patterns of behavior, interests or activities. Based on the importance of early diagnosis for effective therapeutic intervention, several strategies have been employed for detection of the disorder. The artificial neural network (ANN) as a type of machine learning method is a common strategy. In the current study, we extracted genomic data for 487 ASD patients and 455 healthy individuals. All individuals were genotyped in certain single-nucleotide polymorphisms within retinoic acid-related orphan receptor alpha (RORA), gamma-aminobutyric...
