Heat shock proteins (Hsps) perform a fundamental role in protecting plants against abiotic stresses. Although researchers have made great efforts on the functional analysis of individual family members, Hsps have not been fully characterized in rice (Oryza sativa L.) and little is known about their interactors. In this study, we combined orthology-based(More)
Experimentally-determined or computationally-predicted protein phosphorylation sites for distinctive species are becoming increasingly common. In this paper, we compare the predictive performance of a novel classification algorithm with different encoding schemes to develop a rice-specific protein phosphorylation site predictor. Our results imply that the(More)
Cadmium (Cd), a non-essential and toxic heavy metal element, is extremely harmful for rice growth, food safety and even public health. In this paper, two rice varieties, Shanyou 63 (Tolerant to Cd stress) and Nipponbare (Susceptible to Cd stress), were employed as materials to investigate the protein expression and protein–protein interaction in rice in(More)
