Soybean [Glycine max (L.) Merr.] is an important crop which contributes approximately 58% of the world’s oilseed production. Palmitic and stearic acids are the two main saturated fatty acids in soybean oil. Different levels of saturated fatty acids are desired depending on the uses of the soybean oil. Vegetable oil low in saturated fatty acids is preferred(More)
Soybean (Glycine max) is a photoperiod-sensitive and self-pollinated species. Days to flowering (DTF) and maturity (DTM), duration of flowering-to-maturity (DFTM) and plant height (PH) are crucial for soybean adaptability and yield. To dissect the genetic architecture of these agronomically important traits, a population consisting of 309 early maturity(More)
Point-of-Interest (POI) recommendation is a new type of recommendation task that comes along with the prevalence of location-based social networks in recent years. Compared with traditional tasks, it focuses more on personalized, context-aware recommendation results to provide better user experience. To address this new challenge, we propose a Collaborative(More)
As available services accumulate on the Internet, QoS-aware service selection (SSP) becomes an increasingly difficult task. Since Artificial Bee Colony algorithm (ABC) has been successful in solving many problems as a simpler implementation of swarm intelligence, its application to SSP is promising. However, ABC was initially designed for numerical(More)
Soybean [Glycine max (L.) Merr.] is an important oilseed crop which produces about 30 % of the world’s edible vegetable oil. The quality of soybean oil is determined by its fatty acid composition. Soybean oil high in oleic and low in linolenic fatty acids is desirable for human consumption and other uses. The objectives of this study were to identify(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIMS It is generally assumed that plants respond to natural enemies by either allocating resources to resistance traits or compensating for damage. This study evaluated how different methods of artificial shoot removal influence two alternative strategies (i.e. tolerance and defence) of Caragana korshinskii in the semi-arid area of China. (More)
Truth-finding is the fundamental technique for corroborating reports from multiple sources in both data integration and collective intelligent applications. Traditional truth-finding methods assume a single true value for each data item and therefore cannot deal will multiple true values (i.e., the <i>multi-truth-finding</i> problem). So far, the existing(More)
Web services provide a successful way to communicate distributed applications, in a platform-independent and loosely coupled manner. Even though there are examples of good practice for the design, development, and management of web services, getting services to be context-aware is still under investigation. Current proposals require communication with an(More)
Soybean seeds contain high levels of oil and protein, and are the important sources of vegetable oil and plant protein for human consumption and livestock feed. Increased seed yield, oil and protein contents are the main objectives of soybean breeding. The objectives of this study were to identify and validate quantitative trait loci (QTLs) associated with(More)
Amazon and Taobao publish product introduction online for customers’ personal choice and become the successful examples of modern service based on information and communication technologies. However, if they want to achieve a complex service through composing some simple services, the research of service composition platform is still rudimental. In order to(More)
