Microsatellites (or SSRs: simple sequence repeats) are among the most frequently used DNA markers in many areas of research. The use of microsatellite markers is limited by the difficulties involved in their de novo isolation from species for which no genomic resources are available. We describe here a high-throughput method for isolating microsatellite… (More)
One considers systems made of synchronizers to which distributed reactive machines are connected. The corresponding model is described with its implementation in Java, using SugarCubes and the RMI mechanism.
The field of distributed systems is now entering a stage of maturity with work focusing on standards for Open Distributed Processing (ODP). However, it is still important that standardisation remains responsive to emerging technological demands such as the emergence of distributed multimedia computing. This new field introduces continuous media data types… (More)
Reactive scripts are designed to get a exible approach for responsive systems; they are based on the reactive/synchronous approach, well suited to real time programming. A reactive script interpretor is a broadcast event-driven interpretor which can react to several commands in parallel. Generating events and waiting for occurrence of events are the basic… (More)
Hereditary symbioses between fungal endophytes and grasses are relatively recent in the history of plant life. Given < 80 million yr of co-evolution, symbioses are likely to have impacted plant microevolutionary rather than macroevolutionary processes. Therefore, we investigated the microevolutionary role of the fungal endophyte Neotyphodium lolii in the… (More)
Two main mechanisms are thought to affect the prevalence of endophyte-grass symbiosis in host populations: the mode of endophyte transmission, and the fitness differential between symbiotic and non-symbiotic plants. These mechanisms have mostly been studied in synthetic grass populations. If we are to improve our understanding of the ecological and… (More)
This paper presents a Java-based reactive programming framework well adapted to the construction of complex behaviors for CG objects within virtual environments. This reactive approach is based on an instantaneously broadcast event model and a semantically-sound synchronous/reactive formalism. The reactive framework degree of expressiveness is illustrated… (More)
