Recalcitrance of most large-seeded legumes, such as peanut, to regeneration and genetic transformation has hampered studies on gene function and efforts for genetic improvement. Agrobacterium rhizogenes-mediated transformation provides a system for rapid and efficient transformation of plant tissues. In this study, embryonic axes along with cotyledons of(More)
Executive Summary This document describes the design of the Daya Bay reactor neutrino experiment. Recent discoveries in neutrino physics have shown that the Standard Model of particle physics is incomplete. The observation of neutrino oscillations has unequivocally demonstrated that the masses of neutrinos are nonzero. The small-ness of the neutrino masses(More)
A novel family of thiophene-decorated phthalocyanines (M-TPcs) was efficiently synthesized, during which the key intermediate of these compounds was purified through a chemical approach. In the optimized geometries of M-TPcs, the peripherally linked thiophene rings are tilted from the Pc core, which oppose aggregation considering the mutual steric(More)
