BACKGROUND Nitrate is the major source of nitrogen available for many crop plants and is often the limiting factor for plant growth and agricultural productivity especially for maize. Many studies have been done identifying the transcriptome changes under low nitrate conditions. However, the microRNAs (miRNAs) varied under nitrate limiting conditions in(More)
General-purpose graphics processing units (GPGPU) brings an opportunity to improve the performance for many applications. However, exploiting parallelism is low productive in current programming frameworks such as CUDA and OpenCL. Programmers have to consider and deal with many GPGPU architecture details; therefore it is a challenge to trade off the(More)
The Unfolded Protein Response (UPR) is elicited under cellular and environmental stress conditions that disrupt protein folding in the endoplasmic reticulum (ER). Through the transcriptional induction of genes encoding ER resident chaperones and proteins involved in folding, the pathway contributes to alleviating ER stress by increasing the folding capacity(More)
