To decipher and manipulate the 14 000 identified Drosophila genes, there is a need to inject a large number of embryos with transgenes. We have developed an automated instrument for high throughput injection of Drosophila embryos. It was built on an inverted microscope, equipped with a motorized xy stage, autofocus, a charge coupled device camera, and an(More)
We provide the raw data for protein and peptide identification and quantization of superior and inferior spikelets in hybrid rice during grain filling. The mass spectrometry proteomics data have been deposited to the Proteome Xchange Consortium via the PRIDE partner repository with the dataset identifier PXD001046. Our data presented here is also related to(More)
UNLABELLED The biological functions of the differentially abundant proteins between superior and inferior spikelet grains were investigated based on the isobaric tags for relative and absolute quantification to further clarify the mechanism of rice grain filling at the proteomic level, as well as the response of inferior spikelets to drought dress (-20kPa(More)
Stress has effect on speech characteristics and can influence the quality of speech. In this paper, we study the effect of Sleep-Deprivation (SD) on speech characteristics and classify Normal Speech (NS) and Sleep Deprived Speech (SDS). One of the indicators of sleep deprivation is 'flattened voice'. We examine pitch and harmonic locations to analyse(More)
Large-capacity wind power will have impact on transmission line protection when short circuit occurs. This paper built the dynamic simulation model of different wind turbine generator through physical devices, and tested through operation and faults. By analysis of characteristics of wind farm model, this paper analyzed the influences of wind power to(More)
Natural pitch fluctuations are essential to human singing. To effectively synthesize singing voice, the generation of these pitch fluctuations is necessary. Previous synthesis methods classify and reproduce them individually. These fluctuations, however, are found to be dependent and vary under different contexts. This paper proposes a generalized framework(More)
This paper describes our recent efforts in exploring effective discriminative features for speaker recognition. Recent researches have indicated that the appropriate fusion of features is critical to improve the performance of speaker recognition system. In this paper we describe our approaches for the NIST 2006 Speaker Recognition Evaluation. Our system(More)
The paper presents a unit selection-based speech synthesis approach for mandarin Chinese. Unit selection-based approach generates speech by selecting proper units from a speech corpus and connecting them together. In this approach, a set of features are defined to describe the speech units in the corpus and the expected units in the synthesized utterance.(More)
