This paper presents the design principles, implementation, and evaluation of the RETOS operating system which is specifically developed for micro sensor nodes. RETOS has four distinct objectives, which are to provide (1) a multithreaded programming interface, (2) system resiliency, (3) kernel extensibility with dynamic reconfiguration, and (4) WSN-oriented(More)
Three new (2-4) and one known (1) sphingolipid were identified in the MeOH extract of Bombycis Corpus 101A. Their structures were elucidated as (4E,2S,3R)-2-N-octadecanoyl-4-tetradecasphingenine (1), (4E,6E,2S,3R)-2-N-eicosanoyl-4,6-tetradecasphingadienine (2), (4E,2S,3R)-2-N-eicosanoyl-4-tetradecasphingenine (3), and(More)
Piwi-interacting RNAs (piRNAs) are recently discovered, endogenous small non-coding RNAs. piRNAs protect the genome from invasive transposable elements (TE) and sustain integrity of the genome in germ cell lineages. Small RNA-sequencing data can be used to detect piRNA activations in a cell under a specific condition. However, identification of cell(More)
The exponential increase of genomic data brought by the advent of the next or the third generation sequencing (NGS) technologies and the dramatic drop in sequencing cost have driven biological and medical sciences to data-driven sciences. This revolutionary paradigm shift comes with challenges in terms of data transfer, storage, computation, and analysis of(More)
This paper introduces a component-based network management system for wireless sensor networks. The research is motivated by a variety of problems that occur due to the unpredictable behavior of wireless sensor networks. Once sensor nodes are deployed, the inner behavior of a sensor field can only be analyzed by monitoring incoming data packets at the sink(More)
Three phospholipids (4-6) and three aromatic amines (1-3) were obtained from the methanol extract of Bombycis corpus. Based on spectral data, their structures have been elucidated as nicotiamide (1), cytidine (2), adenine (3), 1-O-(9Z-octadecenoyl)-2-O-(8Z,11Z-octadecadienoyl) sn-glycero-3-phosphorylcholine (4),(More)
This demonstration shows the programming development suite of the RETOS operating system for sensor networks, which provides a robust and multithreaded programming interface to application programmers. We first demonstrate how to build the RETOS kernel on the TI MSP430, Atmel ATmega 128 and Chipcon CC2430 family of microcontrollers. The application or a(More)
Drought-stress can cause major economic loss and is a serious issue to address in agriculture. Defining the molecular pathways in how a plant responds to drought-stress may prove valuable in developing new drought-resistant plants. In this study, we identified several novel drought-responsive regulatory coding and noncoding transcripts in rice, Oryza sativa(More)
MOTIVATION Identifying biologically meaningful gene expression patterns from time series gene expression data is important to understand the underlying biological mechanisms. To identify significantly perturbed gene sets between different phenotypes, analysis of time series transcriptome data requires consideration of time and sample dimensions. Thus, the(More)
