Iturin A is the most well studied antifungal cyclic lipopeptide produced by Bacillus species that are frequently utilized as biological control agents. Iturin A not only shows strong antifungal activity against phytopathogens but also induces defense response in plants, thereby reducing plant disease severity. Here we report the defense signaling pathways(More)
In this paper we propose a part-based skew estimation method which is more robust to larger varieties of text images, such as camera-captured scene images. Specifically, the skew angle at each local part of the input image is estimated independently by referring the local part of upright character images stored as a database. Then the global skew angle is(More)
This paper tackles the stroke recovery problem, which is a typical ill-posed reverse problem, by an instancebased method. The basic idea of the instance-based stroke recovery is to refer to the drawing order of a similar instance. The instance-based method has a strong merit that it can deal with multi-stroke characters and other complex characters without(More)
We studied social approach behaviour in medaka fish using three-dimensional computer graphic (3DCG) animations based on the morphological features and motion characteristics obtained from real fish. This is the first study which used 3DCG animations and examined the relative effects of morphological and motion cues on social approach behaviour in medaka.(More)
This paper proposes a new part-based approach for skew estimation of document images. The proposed method first estimates skew angles on rather small areas, which are the local parts of characters, and subsequently determines the global skew angle by aggregating those local estimations. A local skew estimation on a part of a skewed character is performed by(More)
BACKGROUND Biological control is a non-hazardous technique to control plant diseases. Researchers have explored microorganisms that show high plant-disease control efficiency for use as biological control agents. RESULTS A single soil application of Bacillus amyloliquefaciens strain S13-3 suppressed tomato bacterial wilt caused by Ralstonia solanacearum,(More)
