Magnaporthe grisea (Hebert) Barr causes rice blast, one of the most devastating diseases of rice (Oryza sativa) worldwide. This fungus is an ideal organism for studying a number of aspects of plant-pathogen interactions, including infection-related morphogenesis, avirulence, and pathogen evolution. To facilitate M. grisea genome analysis, physical mapping,(More)
Colloidal nanoplatelets, quasi-two-dimensional quantum wells, have recently been introduced as colloidal semiconductor materials with the narrowest known photoluminescence line width (∼10 nm). Unfortunately, these materials have not been shown to have continuously tunable emission but rather emit at discrete wavelengths that depend strictly on atomic-layer(More)
[1] Longitudinal profiles from six alluvial fans surveyed in southwestern California have quantitative attributes that can distinguish formation processes. The radial slope of fans where debris flow processes dominated is constant while fluvially-fed fans have a concave-upward shape. We find the power law regression of upstream slope-distance profiles is(More)
[1] Ground-penetrating radar (GPR) helps to constrain the origin of relict and largely buried fluvial channels in the Bir Kiseiba region of southern Egypt. Our results indicate that the trunk channel to a tributary system identified in Shuttle Imaging Radar data is incised 10–12 m into bedrock, was southwest draining in its final configuration and laterally(More)
