Cucumber is an economically important crop as well as a model system for sex determination studies and plant vascular biology. Here we report the draft genome sequence of Cucumis sativus var. sativus L., assembled using a novel combination of traditional Sanger and next-generation Illumina GA sequencing technologies to obtain 72.2-fold genome coverage. The(More)
In recent years, several methods have been developed to utilize hierarchical features learned from a deep convolutional neural network (CNN) for visual tracking. However, as features from a certain CNN layer characterize an object of interest from only one aspect or one level, the performance of such trackers trained with features from one layer (usually(More)
The Visual Object Tracking challenge VOT2016 aims at comparing short-term single-object visual trackers that do not apply pre-learned models of object appearance. Results of 70 trackers are presented, with a large number of trackers being published at major computer vision conferences and journals in the recent years. The number of tested state-of-the-art(More)
A genetic map was developed with microsatellite (simple sequence repeat, SSR) markers and 148 recombinant inbred lines (RILs) derived from a cross between two cultivated cucumber (Cucumis sativus L.) inbred lines 9110Gt and 9930, which was also segregating for seven horticulturally important traits including bitterfree foliage (bi), gynoecious sex(More)
The Kruppel-associated box (KRAB)-associated co-repressor KAP1 is an essential nuclear co-repressor for the KRAB zinc finger protein superfamily of transcriptional factors. Ataxia telangiectasia mutated (ATM)-Chk2 and ATM- and Rad3-related (ATR)-Chk1 are two primary kinase signaling cascades activated in response to DNA damage. A growing body of evidence(More)
α-Synuclein (α-SYN) is a very important neuronal protein that is associated with Parkinson's disease. In this paper, we utilized Au-doped TiO(2) nanotube arrays to design a photoelectrochemical immunosensor for the detection of α-SYN. The highly ordered TiO(2) nanotubes were fabricated by using an electrochemical anodization technique on pure Ti foil. After(More)
Scab, caused by Cladosporium cucumerinum, is an important disease of cucumber, Cucumis sativus. In this study, we conducted fine genetic mapping of the single dominant scab resistance gene, Ccu, with 148 F9 recombinant inbred lines (RILs) and 1,944 F2 plants derived from the resistant cucumber inbred line 9110Gt and the susceptible line 9930, whose draft(More)
Cucurbitacins are triterpenoids that confer a bitter taste in cucurbits such as cucumber, melon, watermelon, squash, and pumpkin. These compounds discourage most pests on the plant and have also been shown to have antitumor properties. With genomics and biochemistry, we identified nine cucumber genes in the pathway for biosynthesis of cucurbitacin C and(More)
Background subtraction in dynamic scenes is an important and challenging task. In this paper, we present a novel and effective method for dynamic background subtraction based on covariance matrix descriptor. The algorithm integrates two distinct levels: pixel level and region level. At the pixel level, spatial properties that are obtained from pixel(More)
We present a novel approach to non-rigid object tracking based on a supervised level set model (SLSM). In contrast with conventional level set models, which emphasize the intensity consistency only and consider no priors, the curve evolution of the proposed SLSM is object-oriented and supervised by the specific knowledge of the target we want to track.(More)
