Wild-derived mice have long offered invaluable experimental models for mouse genetics because of their high evolutionary divergence from laboratory mice. A number of wild-derived strains are available from the RIKEN BioResource Center (BRC), but they have been maintained as living stocks because of the unavailability of assisted reproductive technology(More)
We present an environment that enables non-programmers to quickly author interactive augmented reality projects without writing code or waiting to compile. Major changes to models, animation, behaviors and interactivity can be made while the application is running, and the results immediately seen on a HMD or screen. We do this by combining marker-tracking(More)
We propose a method to extract traffic information from videos of road intersections, taken from a low-resolution camera fixed 2 to 7m above ground. First, feature points are detected and tracked with the Kanade-Lucas-Tomasi tracker to obtain trajectories. These trajectories are then segmented into groups corresponding to vehicles so that the vehicle's(More)
SnO 2-Ag composite nanomaterials of mass ratio 1:4, 2:3, 3:2 and 4:1 were fabricated and tested for toxicity to E. coli using the pour-plate technique. The said nanomaterials were mixed with laminating fluid and then coated on glass slides. The intensity of UVA transmitted through the coated glass slides was measured. Results revealed that the 1:4 ratios of(More)
By using optical sampling with repetition frequency modulation of pump/probe laser pulses on photoconductive emitter/detector antennas, the high-speed time/frequency domain gigahertz imaging is reported due to the absence of opto-mechanical delay line in this optical scheme. The clear contrast for a 3-cm wide metal plate, which was placed behind a 5-cm(More)
The infrared laser direct absorption spectrum of H(2)DO(+) in the OH stretching region was reported quite recently revealing large amplitude tunneling dynamics. The large rotational constants make the jet-cooled spectrum relatively sparse at low rotational temperatures and assignments thus challenging. Transitions were assigned through ground state(More)
Inversion-rotation spectral lines of the dideuterated hydronium ion, HD2O+, have been observed by a source-modulation millimeter- to submillimeter-wave spectrometer. The ion was generated by a hollow-cathode discharge in a gas mixture of D2O and H2O in a free-space cell. Ten inversion-rotation lines were measured precisely for the lowest pair of inversion(More)
Inversion-rotation spectral lines of the monodeuterated hydronium ion, H(2)DO(+), have been observed by a source-modulation spectrometer in the millimeter- to submillimeter-wave region. The ion was generated by a hollow-cathode discharge in a gas mixture of H(2)O and D(2)O. Nine inversion-rotation lines were measured precisely for the lowest pair of(More)
We report a case of basaloid carcinoma of the thymus, confirmed by histopathological examination, in a 52-year-old man who underwent complete resection. Local recurrence and lung metastases developed, which were obliterated by radiation therapy. The patient survived for 81 months after surgery. We reviewed the 13 other cases of basaloid carcinoma of the(More)
While terahertz time domain spectroscopy (THz-TDS) is a well-established technique, polarization sensitive measurements are challenging due to the need of broadband polarization devices. Here, we characterize our recently introduced multi-contact photoconductive detector antenna with a response matrix analysis. We show that the lead lines attached to(More)
