Japanese gentians (Gentiana triflora and Gentiana scabra) are amongst the most popular floricultural plants in Japan. However, genomic resources for Japanese gentians have not yet been developed, mainly because of the heterozygous genome structure conserved by outcrossing, the long juvenile period, and limited knowledge about the inheritance of important(More)
We developed molecular markers for discrimination of white and blue flower color in Japanese gentian plants. White-flowered gentians can be classified into two types, based on genetic and physiological features. One type includes four allelic variations (gtmyb3-1, gtmyb3-2, gtmyb3-3, and gtmyb3-4) of an anthocyanin biosynthetic regulator gene (GtMYB3),(More)
Electromagnetic field (EMF) distributions created by a 5.2 GHz wireless transmitter inside train cars are analyzed and propagation characteristics are determined from the analysis results. We use the FDTD technique and a large-scale parallel computing technique to precisely estimate the EMF distributions inside cars with passengers.
— The purpose of this study is to estimate the Electromagnetic Field (EMF) distributions excited by Cellular Radios in environments which are almost completely surrounded by conductive surfaces. Some examples of these types of environments are train carriages, elevators and airplanes. Since portable radios may be used in various environments, accurate and(More)
Overwinter survival has to be under critical regulation in the lifecycle of herbaceous perennial plants. Gentians (Gentiana L.) maintain their perennial life style through producing dormant and freezing-tolerant overwinter buds (OWBs) to overcome cold winter. However, the mechanism acting on such an overwinter survival and the genes/proteins contributing to(More)
