This paper describes the characterization of Oshox1, a cDNA clone from rice encoding a member of the homeodomain-leucine zipper (HD-Zip) class of putative transcription factors. Oshox1 maps to chromosome 10 and belongs to a family of related rice genes. Two-hybrid assays showed that Oshox1 protein can homodimerize, but can also form heterodimers with an(More)
A GFP excision assay was developed to monitor the excision of Ac introduced into rice by Agrobacterium-mediated transformation. The presence of a strong double enhancer element of the CaMV 35S promoter adjacent to the Ac promoter induced very early excision, directly after transformation into the plant cell, exemplified by the absence of Ac in the T-DNA(More)
We realize an open, programmable paradigm for application-driven network control by way of a novel network plane — the " service plane " — layered above legacy networks. The service plane bridges domains, establishes trust, and exposes control to credited users/applications while preventing unauthorized access and resource theft. The Authentication,(More)
For data intensive Grid applications, such as shown at iGrid2002, users may require short-lived guaranteed high bandwidth connections. These types of connections, providing a certain Quality of Service (QoS) will need to be authorized and provisioned, often through multiple administrative domains. We present a case study of a Bandwidth on Demand service(More)
The recent emergence of advanced network infrastructures for e-Science enables tuning of network performance at the application level. The Network Service Interface (NSI) has been created as a result of collaborative development of network and application engineers primarily associated with the Research and Education (R&E) community. The NSI allows(More)
Cloud computing gives users much freedom on where they host their computation and storage. However the CO2 emission of a job depends on the location and the energy efficiency of the data centers where it is run. We developed a decision framework that determines to move computation with accompanying data from a local to a greener remote data center for lower(More)
Transposition of the maize En/Spm system in rice was investigated using a two-component construct consisting of an immobilised transposase source driven by the CaMV 35S-promoter, and a modified I/dSpm transposon. Mobilization of I/dSpm in somatic sectors was demonstrated by sequencing of excision products and isolation of flanking genomic sequences in T0(More)
This paper presents ongoing research and current results on the development of flexible access control infrastructures for complex resource provisioning in grid-based collaborative applications and on-demand network services provisioning. We investigate the use of workflow concepts for the required orchestration of multiple grid resources and/or services(More)
Storing data in the cloud is becoming a common trend, for both end-customers and data center operators. We propose a method for deciding where to host data storage tasks under the constraint of minimal greenhouse gas emission. The decision on whether to store data locally or store it remotely at a cleaner data center relies on the models for the local and(More)
