BACKGROUND Plant roots are the primary site of perception and injury for saline-alkaline stress. The current knowledge of saline-alkaline stress transcriptome is mostly focused on saline (NaCl) stress and only limited information on alkaline (NaHCO3) stress is available. RESULTS Using Affymetrix Soybean GeneChip, we conducted transcriptional profiling on(More)
WiBro (Wireless Broadband) is a Korean version of Mobile WiMAX/IEEE 802.16e system, which is designed for mobile broadband wireless access. Being a subset of IEEE 802.16e, WiBro employs orthogonal frequency division multiple access (OFDMA) and time division duplexing (TDD) schemes operating at 2.3 GHz bands. In mid 2006, the world first commercial Mobile(More)
— This paper deals with the optimal packet loss protection issue for streaming the fine granularity scal-able (FGS) video bitstreams over IP networks. Unlike many other existing protection schemes, we develop an error-resilient unequal error protection (ER-UEP) method that adds redundant information optimally for loss protection and, at the same time,(More)
Calcium/calmodulin-dependent kinases play vital roles in protein phosphorylation in eukaryotes, yet little is known about the phosphorylation process of calcium/calmodulin-dependent protein kinase and its role in stress signal transduction in plants. A novel plant-specific calcium-dependent calmodulin-binding receptor-like kinase (GsCBRLK) has been isolated(More)
High salinity and drought are major abiotic factors limiting productivity of alfalfa. GsWRKY20 encodes a WRKY-type transcription factor from Glycine soja. In our previous study, heterologous expression of GsWRKY20 in Arabidopsis significantly increased the drought tolerance of Arabidopsis. In order to assess whether GsWRKY20 is also involved in salt stress(More)
This paper presents a novel motion estimation (ME) framework that offers fine-granular computational-complexity scalability. In the proposed framework, the ME process is first partitioned into multiple search passes. A priority function is used to represent the distortion reduction efficiency of each pass. According to the predicted priority of each(More)
Flowering is a critical event in the life cycle of plants; the WRKY-type transcription factors are reported to be involved in many developmental processes sunch as trichome development and epicuticular wax loading, but whether they are involved in flowering time regulation is still unknown. Within this study, we provide clear evidence that GsWRKY20, a(More)
BACKGROUND Salinization causes negative effects on plant productivity and poses an increasingly serious threat to the sustainability of agriculture. Wild soybean (Glycine soja) can survive in highly saline conditions, therefore provides an ideal candidate plant system for salt tolerance gene mining. RESULTS As a first step towards the characterization of(More)
Performance diagnosis is labor intensive in production cloud computing systems. Such systems typically face many real-world challenges, which the existing diagnosis techniques for such distributed systems cannot effectively solve. An efficient, unsupervised diagnosis tool for locating fine-grained performance anomalies is still lacking in production cloud(More)
