Xylose fermentation is necessary for the bioconversion of lignocellulose to ethanol as fuel, but wild-type Saccharomyces cerevisiae strains cannot fully metabolize xylose. Several efforts have been made to obtain microbial strains with enhanced xylose fermentation. However, xylose fermentation remains a serious challenge because of the complexity of(More)
The emergence of depth sensor facilitates the real-time and low-cost depth capture. However, the quality of its depth map is still inadequate for further applications due to holes, noises and artifacts existing within its depth information. In this paper, we propose an iterative depth boundary refinement framework to recover Kinect depth map. We extract(More)
To identify innovative ways for better utilizing flushed dairy manure wastewater, we have assessed the effect of dairy manure and supplementation with synthetic medium on the growth of Chlorella vulgaris. A series of experiments were carried out to study the impacts of pretreatment of dairy wastewater and the benefits of supplementing dairy manure(More)
