The central few hundred parsecs of the Milky Way host a massive black hole and exhibit very violent gas motion and high temperatures in molecular gas. The origin of these properties has been a mystery for the past four decades. Wide-field imaging of the (12)CO (rotational quantum number J = 1 to 0) 2.6-millimeter spectrum has revealed huge loops of dense(More)
We developed two labeling methods for the direct observation of single-stranded DNA (ssDNA), using a ssDNA binding protein and a ssDNA recognition peptide. The first approach involved protein fusion between the 70-kDa ssDNA-binding domain of replication protein A and enhanced yellow fluorescent protein (RPA-YFP). The second method used the ssDNA binding(More)
In order to reveal the distribution of the dense gas of ≥ 10 4 cm −3 , C 18 O (J =1–0) observations have been made toward the molecular clouds in the Ophiuchus region of ∼ 6.4 deg 2 with the two 4m telescopes of Nagoya University. Forty dense cores have been identified, providing the first complete sample of such dense cores in Ophiuchus. The C 18 O dense(More)
This paper discusses how to schedule tasks of a parallel program onto heterogeneous machines with non-negligible interprocessor comnmnication. In order t,o get. a I~et.ter estinmte of the scheduling priority of a task in the face of contmunication delays, recent theoretical rest, Its are incorporated in the computation of the tasks' execution ranges.

Mechanism of inactivation of bio-particles exposed to non-thermal plasma (NTP), namely, dielectric barrier discharge (DBD), and plasma jet (PJ), has been studied using E. coli, B. subtilis spore, S. cerevisiae and bacteriophages. States of different biological components were monitored during the course of inactivation. Analysis of green fluorescent(More)
