Petunias are important ornamentals with the capacity for cold acclimation. So far, there is limited information concerning gene regulation and signaling pathways associated with the cold stress response in petunias. A custom-designed petunia microarray representing 24816 genes was used to perform transcriptome profiling in petunia seedlings subjected to(More)
<sup>1</sup> In this paper, collaborative use of relays to form a beamforming system and provide physical-layer security is investigated. In particular, amplify-and-forward (AF) relay beamforming designs under total and individual relay power constraints are studied with the goal of maximizing the secrecy rates when perfect channel state information (CSI)(More)
Data intensive applications, such as high energy physics, usually have a large amount of input data requires analysis. These data are often shared and replicated across the data grid. As the computing power increases, the delay caused by "waiting for input data" will become more pronounced. In this paper, we study the impact of parallel download on job(More)
The inevitable move from a single large scale server to a distributed grid environment is beginning to be realized across international grid test-bed like Pacific Rim Applications and Grid Middleware Assembly (PRAGMA). Although jobs submitted to a single large server have been widely analyzed, job characteristics in a grid environment are different as we(More)
KiBank is a database of inhibition constant (Ki) values with 3D structures of target proteins and chemicals. Ki values were accumulated from peer-reviewed literature searched via PubMed. The 3D structure files of target proteins were originally from Protein Data Bank (PDB), while the 2D structure files of the chemicals were collected together with the Ki(More)
