Arachnomelia syndrome (AS), mainly found in Brown Swiss and Simmental cattle, is a congenital lethal genetic malformation of the skeletal system. In this study, a network-based disease gene prioritization approach was implemented to rank genes in the previously reported ∼7 Mb region on chromosome 23 associated with AS in Simmental cattle. The top 6 ranked(More)
Paratuberculosis, or Johne's disease, is a chronic, granulomatous, gastrointestinal tract disease of cattle and other ruminants caused by the bacterium Mycobacterium avium, subspecies paratuberculosis (MAP). Control of Johne's disease is based on programs of testing and culling animals positive for infection with MAP while concurrently modifying management(More)
Improvement for carcass traits related to beef quality is the key concern in beef production. Recent reports found that epigenetics mediates the interaction of individuals with environment and nutrition. The present study was designed to analyze the genetic effect of single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in seven epigenetic-related genes (DNMT1, DNMT3a,(More)
A fault-tolerant tension allocation framework is suggested for ship mobile system consisting of eight anchor windlasses. The fault-tolerant performance is evaluated under sea wind disturbance. The simulation results indicate that ship mobile mooring systems have certain fault-tolerant ability. When one windlass failed, the ship is able to completely(More)
High power supply equipments for frequency and power transforming are designed due to the state that voltage and frequency are incompatible with the status of ships in China's ports. Firstly, this paper makes some reviews about the power systems of the world typical ports. Then the configurations of the mobile power supply system are given. For the(More)
This paper investigates both the knowledge model and the mechanism model for correcting carbon potential using an oxygen sensor (CPUOS). CPUOS is widely used and there exists a deviation between the true value and the measured value. Therefore it is very important to study the correction model for CPUOS. Experiments are planned and carried out to generate(More)
Observing the weld pool and measuring its geometrical parameters are important issues for automated and robotic welding, wherein the visual detection and localization of weld pool are critical steps. Previous methods of visual measurement of weld pool usually assume that the weld pool exists in a predefined area, and its contour should be a specific(More)
