The iPlant Collaborative (iPlant) is a United States National Science Foundation (NSF) funded project that aims to create an innovative, comprehensive, and foundational cyberinfrastructure in support of plant biology research (PSCIC, 2006). iPlant is developing cyberinfrastructure that uniquely enables scientists throughout the diverse fields that comprise(More)
This study makes use of this distinction to analyze the exhaust gas concentration and fuel of the circulating fluidized bed (CFB) boiler that mainly uses wood biomass, and to develop the emission factors of Methane (CH(4)), Nitrous oxide (N(2)O). The fuels used as energy sources in the subject working sites are Wood Chip Fuel (WCF), RDF and Refused Plastic(More)
This paper presents a low power, low complexity IR-UWB radar transceiver for short range object detection. The transceiver provides robustness against false alarms without increasing power consumption, chip size, or complexity. The receiver (RX) and the transmitter (TX) dissipate only 50 pJ/pulse and 470 pJ/pulse under a 1.2V supply, respectively. The(More)
The current paper proposes 3D mesh watermarking using projection onto convex sets. As such, a 3D mesh is iteratively projected onto two constraint convex sets until the convergence condition is satisfied. The sets consist of a robustness set and invisibility set designed to embed the watermark. The watermark can be extracted without the original mesh using(More)
In this study, we show that reduction of glucose concentration increases TR4 expression in 3T3-L1 cells via stimulation of the GSK-3β-CREB pathway. While GSK-3β and CREB increased TR4 expression in 3T3-L1 cells, inhibition of CREB expression or activity resulted in loss of GSK-3β-mediated enhancement of TR4 expression. In addition, CREB enhanced murine TR4(More)
