Single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) have shown promise as in vivo contrast nanoagents for medical theranostics, in particular photoacoustic and photothermal imaging and therapy, as well as targeted drug delivery systems. However, SWNTs have not proved able to evade biological obstacles, such as opsonization and phagocytosis by macrophage and nonspecific(More)
Microarray is one of the most powerful detection systems with multiplexing and high throughput capability. It has significant potential as a versatile biosensing platform for environmental monitoring, pathogen detection, medical therapeutics, and drug screening to name a few. To date, however, microarray applications are still limited to preliminary(More)
Independent sets of DNA oligonucleotides, which only bind with their Watson-Crick complements, have potential use in self-assembly of nanostructures, since they minimize errors and inefficiency from unwanted binding. A software tool implemented a thermodynamic model for DNA duplex formation and was used to generate large independent sets of DNA(More)
BACKGROUND Genetic material extracted from in situ microbial communities has high promise as an indicator of biological system status. However, the challenge is to access genomic information from all organisms at the population or community scale to monitor the biosystem's state. Hence, there is a need for a better diagnostic tool that provides a holistic(More)
Soybean [Glycine max (L.) Merr.] is one of the major legume crops in the world and two types of soluble sugars, sucrose and oligosaccharides, are important determinants for consumer acceptance of soybean products. Thus, understanding soluble sugar profiling in seeds is important in breeding. The recombinant inbred lines have a number of advantages in(More)
Maize (Zea mays L.) is a major crop with different uses but shows significant susceptibility to drought stress. Recent climate change has caused prolonged drought stress, but in most countries maize production relies on rain-fed cultivation. This study was to investigate the impact of the consecutive days of visible wilting (DAW) during tassel initiation(More)
The amount of ultraviolet-B radiation (UV-B: 280–320 nm) reaching Earth’s surface is expected to increase due to stratospheric ozone depletion. This could cause significant biological damage in plants, and serious yield losses in crops. Soybean [Glycine max (L.) Merr.], a major legume crop, is known to be sensitive to UV-B radiation. Thus, developing a(More)
Under future climate conditions, the frequency and severity of drought are expected to increase. Maize (Zea mays L.) is susceptible to drought, especially at flowering. The objective of this study was to investigate the effect of consecutive days of visible wilting (DAW) during tassel emergence using two types of Korean maize hybrids, Gwangpyeongok (Gwp;(More)
The Raso2 , novel QTL for Korea biotype foxglove aphid resistance in soybean from PI 366121 was identified on chromosome 7 using GoldenGate SNP microarray. Foxglove aphid, Aulacorthum solani (Kaltenbach), is a hemipteran insect that infects a wide variety of plants worldwide and causes serious yield losses in crops. The objective of this study was to(More)
