Thirty polymorphic microsatellite markers for swimming crab P. trituberculatus are developed from EST sequences, genomic libraries and cross-species amplification in P. pelagicus, respectively. They are characterized using 24 P. trituberculatus individuals from Yingkou natural population. The number of alleles per locus range from 4 to 21 with a mean number(More)
Microsatellites have been a powerful genetic tool in determining pedigree relationships among individuals. A microsatellite marker suite can be used to reliably assign parentage in the Portunus trituberculatus selective breeding programs. Thirty published microsatellites were screened for their suitability to be included in a DNA parentage marker suite.(More)
Reliable and real-time information on soil and crop properties is important for the development of management practices in accordance with the requirements of a specific soil and crop within individual field units. This is particularly the case in salt-affected agricultural landscape where managing the spatial variability of soil salinity is essential to(More)

We describe a compact double-layer waveguide grating splitter that not only achieves efficient coupling between single mode fiber and a silicon-on-insulator optical waveguide but also realizes effective splitting. By appropriate choice of waveguide/grating parameters, including thicknesses, periods, height, and fill factor to optimize the mode matching,(More)
