The fungus Marssonina brunnea is a causal pathogen of Marssonina leaf spot that devastates poplar plantations by defoliating susceptible trees before normal fall leaf drop. We sequence the genome of M. brunnea with a size of 52 Mb assembled into 89 scaffolds, representing the first sequenced Dermateaceae genome. By inoculating this fungus onto a poplar(More)
—This paper describe our approaches to real-time filtering task in the TREC 2015 Microblog track, including push notifications on a mobile phone task and periodic email digest task. In the push notifications on a mobile phone task, we apply a recommendation framework with rank algorithm and dynamic threshold adjustment which utilizes both semantic content(More)
BACKGROUND Internet addiction can seriously affect the social functioning and studies of college students in China but measures for addressing this problem have not yet been developed or tested. OBJECTIVE Assess the personality characteristics of college students with internet addiction. METHODS Two self-report scales, the Tridimensional Personality(More)
Despite our expanding knowledge about the biochemistry of gene regulation involved in host-pathogen interactions, a quantitative understanding of this process at a transcriptional level is still limited. We devise and assess a computational framework that can address this question. This framework is founded on a mixture model-based likelihood, equipped with(More)
Small secreted proteins (SSPs) are employed by plant pathogenic fungi as essential strategic tools for their successful colonization. SSPs are often species-specific and so far only a few widely phylogenetically distributed SSPs have been identified. A novel fungal SSP family consisting of 107 members was identified in the poplar tree fungal pathogen(More)
The developmental variation in stem height with respect to stem diameter is related to a broad range of ecological and evolutionary phenomena in trees, but the underlying genetic basis of this variation remains elusive. We implement a dynamic statistical model, functional mapping, to formulate a general procedure for the computational identification of(More)
The aim of the current study was to investigate the presence of human papillomavirus (HPV) and evaluate its association with Ki-67 and cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) expressions in keratocystic odontogenic tumor (KCOT). Nineteen cases were included in the present study. Conventional PCR method and immunohistochemical analysis were performed for the detection of(More)
Aims: The aim of the current study was to detect and compare Human papillomavirus (HPV) in dentigerous cyst and ameloblastoma. Materials and methods: The study included 32 samples, which distributed into dentigerous cysts (n=16) and ameloblastomas (n=16). Conventional PCR assay using SPF1/2 consensus primers and immunohistochemical analysis were performed(More)
BACKGROUND Children with Developmental Coordination Disorder (DCD) have multiple impairments in movement, in learning, and in the activities of daily living. Studies from other countries have associated these impairments with cognitive function, particularly executive functioning, but these findings have not been confirmed in China. AIM Compare the(More)
