The majority of disease resistance genes in plants encode nucleotide-binding site leucine-rich repeat (NBS-LRR) proteins. This large family is encoded by hundreds of diverse genes per genome and can be subdivided into the functionally distinct TIR-domain-containing (TNL) and CC-domain-containing (CNL) subfamilies. Their precise role in recognition is(More)
Nucleotide binding site-leucine rich repeat (NBS-LRR)-encoding genes comprise the largest class of plant disease resistance genes. The 149 NBS-LRR-encoding genes and the 58 related genes that do not encode LRRs represent approximately 0.8% of all ORFs so far annotated in Arabidopsis ecotype Col-0. Despite their prevalence in the genome and functional(More)
A dissection of plant defense pathways was initiated through gene expression profiling of the responses of a single Arabidopsis thaliana genotype to isogenic Pseudomonas syringae strains expressing one of four different cloned avirulence (avr) genes. Differences in the expression profiles elicited by different resistance (R)-avr interactions were observed.(More)
Verticillium dahliae (Vd) and Verticillium albo-atrum (Va) are cosmopolitan soil fungi causing very disruptive vascular diseases on a wide range of crop plants. To date, no sexual stage has been identified in either microorganism suggesting that somatic mutation is a major force in generating genetic diversity. Whole genome comparative analysis of the(More)
We report the results of a genome-wide analysis of transcription in Arabidopsis thaliana after treatment with Pseudomonas syringae pathovar tomato. Our time course RNA-Seq experiment uses over 500 million read pairs to provide a detailed characterization of the response to infection in both susceptible and resistant hosts. The set of observed differentially(More)
The cotton sesquiterpene cyclase, (+)-δ-cadinene synthase, is encoded by a gene family, which can be divided into two subfamilies:CAD1-A and CAD1-C. The geneCAD1-A was isolated fromG. arboreum. In situ hybridization performed on seven-day-old cotton seedlings localized transcripts of both the CAD1 -A and CAD1 -C mainly in lateral root primordium and apical(More)
Corpus annotation is an important research subject in corpus linguistics, however, annotation research for teaching Chinese as a second language (TCSL) is scarce. It is difficult to retrieve data which are suitable for teaching from the general Chinese corpus. To deal with this problem, firstly, this paper proposed the concept of grammar points annotation(More)
Crop productivity needs to substantially increase to meet global food and feed demand for a rapidly growing world population. Agricultural technology developers are pursuing a variety of approaches based on both traditional technologies such as genetic improvement, pest control and mechanization as well as new technologies such as genomics, gene(More)
Corpus Concordancing is a popular research topic. The function of retrieving data from corpus by providing non-adjacent keywords is widely used by users. However, the precision of retrieval results is not very high because the machine can't recognize the relationship of the non-adjacent keywords. To deal with this problem, this paper proposed a rule-based(More)
