The complete nucleotide sequence including precise 5′- and 3′-terminal non-coding regions (NCRs) of the attenuated lapinized Chinese strain (HCLV) of Classical Swine Fever Virus (CSFV) was determined from overlapping cDNA clones constructed by separated RT-PCR and rapid amplification of cDNA ends (RACE) methods. The genomic RNA of the HCLV strain consists(More)
Spiroplasma kunkelii, the causative agent of corn stunt disease in maize ( Zea mays L.), is a helical, cell wall-less prokaryote assigned to the class Mollicutes. As part of a project to sequence the entire S. kunkelii genome, we analyzed an 85-kb DNA segment from the pathogenic strain CR2-3x. This genome segment contains 101 ORFs and two tRNA genes. The(More)
We present a convergence analysis of a stochastic method for numerical modeling of complex fluids using Brownian configuration fields (BCF) for shear flows. The analysis takes into account the special structure of the stochastic partial differential equations for shear flows. We establish the optimal rate of convergence. We also analyze the nature of the(More)
