The identification of molecular markers linked to genes controlling drought resistance factors in rice is a necessary step to improve breeding efficiency for this complex trait. QTLs controlling drought avoidance mechanisms were analyzed in a doubled-haploid population of rice. Three trials with different drought stress intensities were carried out in two(More)
We report here the RFLP mapping of quantitative triat loci (QTLs) that affect some important agronomic traits in cultivated rice. An anther culturederived doubled haploid (DH) population was established from a cross between an indica and a japonica rice variety. On the basis of this population a molecular linkage map comprising 137 markers was constructed(More)
Drought is one of the main abiotic constraints in rice. A deep root system contributes efficiently to maintaining the water status of the crop through a stress period. After identifying QTLs affecting root parameters in a doubled-haploid (DH) population of rice derived from the cross IR64/Azucena, we started a marker-assisted backcross program to transfer(More)
Drought is an important constraint to productivity in rainfed rice environments. Improvement in the various components of rice drought tolerance is now possible through the identification and manipulation of DNA markers linked with genes controlling these quantitative traits. A recombinant inbred line population was derived from the cross IAC165 × Co39. A(More)
The high solution costs and non-uniqueness difficulties in the boundary element method (BEM) based on the conventional boundary integral equation (CBIE) formulation are two main weaknesses in the BEM for solving exterior acoustic wave problems. To tackle these two weaknesses, an adaptive fast multipole boundary element method (FMBEM) based on the(More)
A new adaptive fast multipole boundary element method (BEM) for solving 3-D half-space acoustic wave problems is presented in this paper. The half-space Green’s function is employed explicitly in the boundary integral equation (BIE) formulation so that a tree structure of the boundary elements only for the boundaries of the real domain need to be applied,(More)
Parametric and implicit forms are two common representations of geometric objects. It is important to be able to pass back and forth between the two representations, two processes called parameterization and implicitization, respectively. In this paper, we study the parametrization and implicitization of quadrics (quadratic parametric surfaces with two base(More)
To investigate how the response labels of the 5-level EQ-5D (EQ-5D-5L) items are interpreted and used by English-speaking Chinese and non-Chinese Singaporeans, as a means to assessing whether those items are cross-culturally equivalent health-status measures in this Asian population. In face-to-face interviews, Chinese, Malay and Indian visitors to a(More)

The myocardial tissue covering the artery is termed a myocardial bridge. But so far many researches on the myocardial bridge have been involved with clinical patients or animals, which have some limitations (e.g. lack of systematicness, difficulties in measuring the flow in the mural coronary artery and so on). Designing a “Heart—Mural coronary(More)
