An increasing number of university lectures and a vast majority of company presentations are being digitally archived for redistribution today. Most of these presentations take the form of a speaker lecturing while guided by the accompanying display of pre-composed presentation slides such as Microsoft PowerPoint. As these presentations are digitized, the(More)
The mature fruit skin of ‘Dangshansuli’ pear (Pyrus bretchnederi Rehd.) is yellow-green, but the fruit of the mutant, ‘Xiusu’, is russetted. To understand the mechanism of russet formation, the suppression subtractive hybridization libraries were used to screen for differentially expressed genes between the wild type pear and the mutant. Three hundred and(More)
Browning disorder, which usually occurs post-harvest in pears subjected to long-term storage, can cause browning of the pear flesh and/or core. In 2011, investigators in China found a novel type of brown spot (designated as surface brown spot, SBS) in pre-harvest 'Dangshansuli' pears (Pyrus bretschneideri Rehd.). SBS has a large impact on the exterior(More)
The gametophytic self-incompatibility system in Rosaceae is controlled by a single highly polymorphic gene complex, termed the S locus, which is comprised of tightly linked stylar-expressed gene, S-RNase, with a pollen-expressed gene. In this study, seven novel S haplotype-specific F-box protein genes, PmSFB 10 to PmSFB 16 in Prunus mume, have been(More)
