Appearance-based human re-identification is challenging due to different camera characteristics, varying lighting conditions, pose variations across camera views, etc. Recent studies have revealed that color information plays a critical role on performance. However, two problems remain unclear: (1) how do different color descriptors perform under the same(More)
We investigated whether endothelin-2/vasoactive intestinal contractor (ET-2/VIC) gene expression, upregulated by hypoxia in cancer cells, was associated with differentiation in neuronal cells. RT-PCR analysis, morphological observations, and immunostaining revealed that CoCl2, a hypoxic mimetic agent, at 200 microM increased expression of the ET-2/VIC gene,(More)
A motion panorama is an efficient and compact representation of the underlying video. However, the motion panorama construction process is computationally intensive and hence extremely time consuming. Addressing this issue is crucial when one considers using motion panoramas in a real-time environment such as live video transmission. We present two parallel(More)
—One impressive advantage of convolutional neural networks (CNNs) is their ability to automatically learn feature representation from raw pixels, eliminating the need for hand-designed procedures. However, recent methods for single image super-resolution (SR) fail to maintain this advantage. They utilize CNNs in two decoupled steps, i.e., first upsampling(More)
Maize ARGOS8 is a negative regulator of ethylene responses. A previous study has shown that transgenic plants constitutively overexpressing ARGOS8 have reduced ethylene sensitivity and improved grain yield under drought stress conditions. To explore the targeted use of ARGOS8 native expression variation in drought-tolerant breeding, a diverse set of over(More)
