Programmed cell death (PCD) is of fundamental importance to development and defense in animals and plants. In plants, a well-recognized form of PCD is hypersensitive response (HR) triggered by pathogens, which involves the generation of reactive oxygen species (ROS) and other signaling molecules. While the mitochondrion is a master regulator of PCD in(More)
Glabrous rice, which lacks trichomes on the rice epidermis, is regarded as an important germplasm resource in rice breeding. Trichomes are derived from aerial epidermal cells and used as a model to study the cell fate determination in plant. In Arabidopsis, the molecular mechanisms of trichome development have been well studied. However, little is known(More)
We study the design of portfolios under a minimum risk criterion. The performance of the optimized portfolio relies on the accuracy of the estimated covariance matrix of the portfolio asset returns. For large portfolios, the number of available market returns is often of similar order to the number of assets, so that the sample covariance matrix performs(More)
We study the design of portfolios under a minimum risk criterion. The performance of the optimized portfolio relies on the accuracy to the estimated covariance matrix of portfolio asset returns. For large portfolios, the sample size is often of similar order to the number of assets, and the traditional sample covariance matrix performs poorly. Additionally,(More)
We study the design of minimum variance portfolio when asset returns follow a low rank factor model. Using results from random matrix theory, an optimal shrinkage approach for the isolated eigenvalues of the covariance matrix is developed. The proposed portfolio optimization strategy is shown to have good performance on synthetic data but not always on real(More)
