BACKGROUND Asian lotus (Nelumbo nucifera Gaertn.) is the national flower of India, Vietnam, and one of the top ten traditional Chinese flowers. Although lotus is highly valued for its ornamental, economic and cultural uses, genomic information, particularly the expressed sequence based (genic) markers is limited. High-throughput transcriptome sequencing(More)
Microbial fuel cells (MFCs) are a class of ideal technologies that function via anaerobic respiration of electricigens, which bring current generation and environmental restoration together. An in-depth understanding of microbial metabolism is of great importance in engineering microbes to further improve their respiration. We employed flux balance analysis(More)
Lignocellulose facilitates the fungal oxidization of recalcitrant organic pollutants through the extracellular ligninolytic enzymes induced by lignin in wood or other plant tissues. However, available information on this phenomenon is insufficient. Free radical chain reactions during lignin metabolism are important in xenobiotic removal. Thus, the effect of(More)
Rosa odorata var. gigantea is one of the most important ancestors of modern roses, which owns many merit traits including large flower, early flowering, and tea scent. Due to habitat loss and fragmentation, it has been listed as a rare and endangered species in China. In this study, a total of 424 accessions from 27 locations across its major distribution(More)
Globalization pushes production and consumption to geographically diverse locations and generates a variety of sizeable opportunities and challenges. The distribution and associated effects of short-lived primary fine particulate matter (PM2.5), a representative of local pollution, are significantly affected by the consumption through global supply chain.(More)
Aconitum vilmorinianum is a very important Chinese traditional medicinal plant, which is one of the main raw materials in Yunnan Baiyao as an analgesic and anti-inflammatory agent. Recently, it has been threatened by overexploitation and human disturbances. Genetic background of this species is essential for the efficient conservation and rational(More)
A four-year trial was set up to test the feasibility of growing oleic sunflower in a very strongly saline wasteland with drip irrigation in the Ningxia plain of Northwest China. The soil salinity expressed as electrical conductivity of the saturation paste extract (EC e ) was around 28 dS/m, and soil nutrient was deficient in the upper 120 cm depth. The(More)
