Huangzaosi, Qi319, and Ye478 are foundation inbred lines widely used in maize breeding in China. To elucidate genetic base of yield components and kernel-related traits in these elite lines, two F2:3 populations derived from crosses Qi319 × Huangzaosi (Q/H, 230 families) and Ye478 × Huangzaosi (Y/H, 235 families), as well as their parents were evaluated in(More)
We report on Raman spectroscopy of few quintuple layer topological insulator bismuth selenide (Bi2Se3) nanoplatelets (NPs), synthesized by a polyol method. The as-grown NPs exhibit excellent crystalline quality, hexagonal or truncated trigonal morphology, and uniformly flat surfaces down to a few quintuple layers. Both Stokes and anti-Stokes Raman(More)
Grain yield is one of the most important and complex quantitative traits in maize breeding. In the present study, a total of 11 connected RIL populations, derived from crosses between elite inbreed “Huangzaosi” as the common parent and 11 elite inbreeds, were evaluated for five yield components and kernel-related traits under six environments. Quantitative(More)
Simultaneous improvement in grain yield and related traits in maize hybrids and their parents (inbred lines) requires a better knowledge of genotypic correlations between family per se performance (FP) and testcross performance (TP). Thus, to understand the genetic basis of yield-related traits in both inbred lines and their testcrosses, two F 2:3(More)
Flowering time is one of the major adaptive traits in domestication of maize and an important selection criterion in breeding. To detect more maize flowering time variants we evaluated flowering time traits using an extremely large multi- genetic background population that contained more than 8000 lines under multiple Sino-United States environments. The(More)
Flexible electronic and photonic devices have been demonstrated in the past decade, with significant promise in low-cost, light-weighted, transparent, biocompatible, and portable devices for a wide range of applications. Herein, we demonstrate a flexible metamaterial (Metaflex)-based photonic device operating in the visible-IR regime, which shows potential(More)
The problem of privacy-preserving data mining has become more and more important in recent years. Many successful and efficient techniques have been developed. However, in collaborative data analysis, part of the datasets may come from different data owners and may be processed using different data distortion methods. Thus, combinations of datasets(More)
We report a strategy for achieving epitaxial, vertically aligned cadmium chalcogenide (CdS, CdSe, and CdTe) nanowire arrays utilizing van der Waals epitaxy with (001) muscovite mica substrate. The nanowires, grown from a vapor transport process, exhibited diameter uniformity throughout their length, sharp interface to the substrate, and positive correlation(More)
In this paper, we report a facile method for preparation of polystyrene/titania/urea-formaldehyde resin (PS/TiO(2)/UF) multilayer core-shell hybrid microspheres with high stability through in situ condensation polymerization. The TEM images show that the thickness of UF shells is about 10 nm. The Zeta potential is close to zero. The density of PS/TiO(2)/UF(More)
Nonnegative matrix factorization method is a kind of new matrix decomposition method. It is an effective tool for large data processing and analysis. At the same time, NMF has an important performance on intelligent information processing and pattern recognition. This paper first analyses and discusses the NMF algorithms based on its basic theory. We then(More)
