Xylose is the main pentose and second most abundant sugar in lignocellulosic feedstocks. To improve xylose utilization, necessary for the cost-effective bioconversion of lignocellulose, several metabolic engineering approaches have been employed in the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae. In this study, we describe the rational metabolic engineering of a S.(More)
Horizontal resistance to late blight with quantitative and durable characteristics is a major objective for potato breeding programs. With the aim of investigating the molecular aspects of horizontal resistance, a cDNA microarray was used to identify Phytophthora infestans-induced genes from 100 expressed sequence tags (ESTs) selected from a subtractive(More)
Phenotyping single cells based on the products they secrete or consume is a key bottleneck in many biotechnology applications, such as combinatorial metabolic engineering for the overproduction of secreted metabolites. Here we present a flexible high-throughput approach that uses microfluidics to compartmentalize individual cells for growth and analysis in(More)
Arvo is a new programming language focuses on concurrency. Its primary goal is to provide the programmer with an simple and concise way to design concurrent systems without explicitly identifying and differentiating concurrent and sequential sections. It does this by preventing the programmer from being able to explicitly define an order between statements(More)
Under a revenue-sharing contract, the paper probes the main factors that affect the performance of supply chain, analyzes how to maintain the stability of the supply chain system. Considering a supply chain with a manufacturer and a distributor, based on game model, revenue sharing, contribute coefficient, innovation cost are discussed. The results indicate(More)
