Growing demand for energy-efficient, high-performance systems has resulted in the growth of innovative heterogeneous computing system architectures that use FPGAs. FPGA-based architectures enable designers to implement custom instruction streams executing on potentially thousands of compute elements. Traditionally, FPGAs have been used as compute elements(More)
With the world's focus on reducing our dependency on fossil-fuel energy, the scientific community can investigate new plastic materials that are much less dependent on petroleum than are conventional plastics. Given increasing environmental issues, the idea of replacing plastics with water-based gels, so-called hydrogels, seems reasonable. Here we report(More)
Enzymes, together with the process of self-assembly, constitute necessary components of the foundation of life on the nanometre scale. The exceedingly high efficiency and selectivity exhibited by enzymes for catalyzing biotransformations naturally lead to the exploration of enzyme mimics and the applications of enzymes in industrial biotransformations.(More)
Rose fragrances play an important role in attracting pollinators and commercial value. However, some genes involved in rose floral scent metabolism are less well understood. Here, wild-type scented rose (WR) and its spontaneous non-scented mutant rose (MR) were analyzed. SPME-GC/MS analysis showed that relative content of 1-ethenyl-4-methoxy-benzene(More)
With the amount of data continuing to grow, extracting "data of interest" is becoming popular, pervasive, and more important than ever. Data mining, as this process is known as, seeks to draw meaningful conclusions, extract knowledge, and acquire models from vast amounts of data. These compute-intensive data-mining applications, where thread-level(More)
Rosa chinensis 'Pallida' (Rosa L.) is one of the most important ancient rose cultivars originating from China. It contributed the 'tea scent' trait to modern roses. However, little information is available on the gene regulatory networks involved in scent biosynthesis and metabolism in Rosa. In this study, the transcriptome of R. chinensis 'Pallida' petals(More)
With the evolution of memory technologies, more types of memories are increasingly becoming available besides traditional DRAM. This paper focuses on the exploration how to organize heterogeneous memories for better performance. Two different models are introduced: Flat and Hierarchy. To evaluate our designs, the system bus trace is collected for(More)
