Two dominant genes conditioning resistance to the root-knot nematode Meloidogyne arenaria were identified in a segregating F2 population derived from the cross of 4x (Arachis hypogaea x Arachis cardenasii)-GA 6 and PI 261942. Mae is proposed as the designation for the dominant gene restricting egg number and Mag is proposed as the designation for the(More)
Forty-six introgression lines (F10C9) from a cross between Arachis hypogaea L. (2n = 4x = 40) and A. cardenasii Krapov. & W. C. Gregory (2n = 2x = 20) were analyzed for the introgression of A. cardenasii chromosome segments. Seventy-three RFLP probes and 70 RAPD primers, expressing from one to four A. cardenasii-specific bands, were used to evaluate the set(More)
In this paper, we show that the seminal, biologically-inspired saliency model by Itti et al. [21] is still competitive with current state-of-the-art methods for salient object segmentation if some important adaptions are made. We show which changes are necessary to achieve high performance, with special emphasis on the scale-space: we introduce a twin(More)
The E. coli dnaY gene product is an arginine tRNA. Its 77 nucleotide sequence can be folded into a typical cloverleaf structure with a UCU anticodon corresponding to the rare arginine codon AGA. A dnaY+ plasmid confers overproduction of at least one arginine-accepting minor species of tRNAArg. The dnaY promoter was identified by run-off transcription(More)
The dnaY gene of E. coli, thought to be involved in the polymerization phase of DNA replication, was localized on a fragment 118 base pairs in length. This fragment, cloned in two different vectors and tested in a dnaY (Ts) recA host, has dnaY + complementing activity. The nucleotide sequence of the 118 base pairs and flanking bases was determined. The dnaY(More)
We present a novel method based on saliency and segmentation to generate generic object candidates from RGB-D data. Our method uses saliency as a cue to roughly estimate the location and extent of the objects present in the scene. Salient regions are used to glue together the segments obtained from over-segmenting the scene by either color or depth(More)
Incorporation of genetic resistance against several biotic stresses that plague cultivated peanut, Arachis hypogaea (2n=4x=40), is an ideal option to develop disease resistant and ecologically safe peanut varieties. The primary gene pool of peanut contains many diploid wild species (2n=2x=20) of Arachis, which have high levels of disease and insect(More)
