SUMMARY QTLNetwork is a software package for mapping and visualizing the genetic architecture underlying complex traits for experimental populations derived from a cross between two inbred lines. It can simultaneously map quantitative trait loci (QTL) with individual effects, epistasis and QTL-environment interaction. Currently, it is able to handle data(More)
Twelve genes of the PIN family in rice were analyzed for gene and protein structures and an evolutionary relationship with reported AtPINs in Arabidopsis. Four members of PIN1 (designated as OsPIN1a-d), one gene paired with AtPIN2 (OsPIN2), three members of PIN5 (OsPIN5a-c), one gene paired with AtPIN8 (OsPIN8), and three monocot-specific PINs (OsPIN9,(More)
Hepatic fibrosis is the common wound-healing response to chronic liver injury. In this process, activation of hepatic stellate cells is characteristic of cell proliferation and migration, production of collagen and other extracellular matrix (ECM) molecules, and contraction after transforming into myofibroblasts. It has been shown that the fibrogenic(More)
The rice (Oryza sativa L.) genome contains at least six genes exclusively with an SPX (SYG1/PHO81/XPR1) domain at the N-terminal, designated as OsSPX1-6. Here we report the diverse expression patterns of the OsSPX genes in different tissues and their responses to Pi-starvation. Among them, five genes, OsSPX1, 2, 3, 5 and 6 are responsive to Pi-starvation in(More)
Subspace clustering is a powerful technology for clustering data according to the underlying subspaces. Representation based methods are the most popular subspace clustering approach in recent years. In this paper, we analyze the grouping effect of representation based methods in depth. In particular, we introduce the enforced grouping effect conditions,(More)
Data in many image and video analysis tasks can be viewed as points drawn from multiple low-dimensional subspaces with each subspace corresponding to one category or class. One basic task for processing such kind of data is to separate the points according to the underlying subspace, referred to as subspace clustering. Extensive studies have been made on(More)
The blooming online social networks have revolutionized the way information is created, disseminated and consumed, positing significant challenges to the conventional information propagation carriers, especially for the television land-scape. In this paper, we design and develop a multi-screen cloud social TV integrated with social media via a second screen(More)
Recent years, image-based crack detection has attracted more and more attentions for its potential applications on the inspection, diagnosis, and maintenance of various products, e.g. metal workpiece, concrete structure, asphalt road and etc. Generally, the applications are inevitably confronted with noises such as non-uniform illuminated conditions,(More)
