A rice CDPK gene, OsCDPK14 (AY144497), was cloned from developing caryopses of rice (Oryza sativa cv. Zhonghua 15). Its cDNA sequence (1922 bp) contains an ORF encoding a 514 amino acids protein (56.7kD, pl 5.18). OsCDPK14 shows the typical structural features of the CDPK family, including a conserved catalytic Ser/Thr kinase domain, an autoinhibitory(More)
Water pipe failures can not only have a great impact on people’s daily life but also cause significant waste of water which is an essential and precious resource to human beings. As a result, preventative maintenance for water pipes, particularly in urbanscale networks, is of great importance for a sustainable society. To achieve effective replacement and(More)

Web-delivered service is an emerging approach for IT service by leveraging the partnership and Web technology to reduce IT service cost and improve delivery efficiency. To make it more effective, business design is also very important besides technology innovation. This paper proposes a three-tier analytical framework to improve business design based on the(More)
Load forecasting is an attractive and complicated application of machine learning theory and algorithms. Continuous efforts have been made from both academics and industry, by using various methods such as Regression, Artificial Neural Network (ANN), Time Series Models like Auto Regressive Moving Average Models (ARMA), Gaussian Process (GP) and Genetic(More)
Spatial association rule mining is an important technique of spatial data mining and business intelligence. Nevertheless, traditional spatial association rule mining approaches have a significant limitation that they cannot effectively involve and exploit non-spatial information. As a result, many interesting rules mixing spatial and non-spatial information(More)
