Plants respond and adapt to drought, cold and high-salinity stresses in order to survive. In this study, we applied Arabidopsis Affymetrix tiling arrays to study the whole genome transcriptome under drought, cold, high-salinity and ABA treatment conditions. The bioinformatic analysis using the tiling array data showed that 7,719 non-AGI transcriptional(More)
Among 100 childhood brain tumors treated at Kobe Children's Hospital from May 1970 to June 1985, 18 of the children presented with symptoms during the first year of life. This paper analyzes these 18 cases. Supratentorial tumors (78%) were more common than infratentorial ones, and 67% of all the tumors were located in the central neural axis. Initial(More)
PosMed (http://omicspace.riken.jp/) prioritizes candidate genes for positional cloning by employing our original database search engine GRASE, which uses an inferential process similar to an artificial neural network comprising documental neurons (or 'documentrons') that represent each document contained in databases such as MEDLINE and OMIM. Given a(More)
Plants respond and adapt to drought, cold, and high-salinity stresses. Stress-inducible gene products function in the stress response and tolerance in plants. Using cDNA microarrays and oligonucleotide microarrays, stress-inducible genes have been identified in various plant species so far. Recently, tiling array technology has become a powerful tool for(More)
SUMMARY In this paper we describe collaborative constraint functional logic programming and the system called Open CFLP that supports this programming paradigm. The system solves equations by collaboration of various equational constraint solvers. The solvers include higher-order lazy narrowing cal-culi that serve as the interpreter of higher-order(More)
We conducted a molecular phylogeographic analysis of Aegialites beetles sampled on the coasts of Hokkaido, northern Japan, using a partial sequence (553 bp) of the mitochondrial ND2 gene. The beetles are flightless and are adapted to the supralittoral zone of rocky shores. In all, 249 individuals from 17 populations were included in the molecular analysis.(More)
Ladybird beetles in the tribe Epilachnini include notorious crop pests and model species studied intensively in various fields of evolutionary biology. From a combined dataset of mitochondrial (ND2) and nuclear (28S) DNA sequences, we reconstructed the phylogeny of 46 species of Epilachnini from Asia, Africa, America, and the Australian region: 16 species(More)
UNLABELLED OmicBrowse is a browser to explore multiple datasets coordinated in the multidimensional omic space integrating omics knowledge ranging from genomes to phenomes and connecting evolutional correspondences among multiple species. OmicBrowse integrates multiple data servers into a single omic space through secure peer-to-peer server communications,(More)
A rare case of cervical syringomyelia related to breech delivery is reported. The initial diagnosis was bilateral brachial plexus palsy due to birth injury, which was revealed by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to be traumatic syringomyelia. The usefulness of MRI in the early diagnosis of cervical cord birth injury, especially in differentiating between(More)
The purpose of this study was to investigate the accuracy of distance measurements of implant length based on periapical radiographs compared with that of other modalities. We carried out an experimental trial to compare precision in distance measurement. Dental implant fixtures were buried in the canine and first molar regions. These were then subjected to(More)
