The first single-nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) maps for watermelon [Citrullus lanatus (Thunb.) Matsum. et Nakai] were constructed and compared. Three populations were developed from crosses between two elite cultivars, Klondike Black Seeded × New Hampshire Midget (KBS × NHM), an elite cultivar and wild egusi accession, Strain II × PI 560023 (SII × Egusi)(More)
Many personal computers are operated with no backup strategy for protecting data in the event of loss or failure. At the same time, PCs are likely to contain spare disk space and unused networking resources. We present the Apportioned Backup System (ABS), which provides a reliable collaborative backup resource by leveraging these independent, distributed(More)
InvertNet, one of the three Thematic Collection Networks (TCNs) funded in the first round of the U.S. National Science Foundation's Advancing Digitization of Biological Collections (ADBC) program, is tasked with providing digital access to ~60 million specimens housed in 22 arthropod (primarily insect) collections at institutions distributed throughout the(More)
The aim of non-rigid registration as applied to a group of images is to find a 'meaningful' dense spatial correspondence across the set. There are many methods available for finding such a correspondence given a pair of images, but viewing the groupwise case as just successive pairwise is rather na¨ıve. The principled non-rigid registration of groups of(More)
Between 1989 and 2008, there was a significant increase in sugar-sweetened beverage consumption in children. 1 According to the Evidence Analysis Library of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, there is evidence of a link between sugar-sweetened beverage (SSB) intake and childhood overweight and obesity (OW/OB). 2 In addition, a review by Malik et al.(More)
