Identification of protein complexes and functional modules from protein-protein interaction (PPI) networks is crucial to understanding the principles of cellular organization and predicting protein functions. In the past few years, many computational methods have been proposed. However, most of them considered the PPI networks as static graphs and(More)
BACKGROUND The use of DNA from archival formalin and paraffin embedded (FFPE) tissue for genetic and epigenetic analyses may be problematic, since the DNA is often degraded and only limited amounts may be available. Thus, it is currently not known whether genome-wide methylation can be reliably assessed in DNA from archival FFPE tissue. (More)
Potato stem canker caused by Rhizoctonia solani commonly occurs in potato-growing regions around the world, but little is known about whether binucleate Rhizoctonia (BNR) can incite this disease on potato plants in China. In the present study, a total of 69 BNR isolates were recovered from cankered subterraneous stems of potato collected from 17 provinces,(More)
Three hundred and fifty six isolates of Rhizoctonia solani were obtained from potato stems and tubers in the main potato growing regions of China between 2011 and 2014. On the basis of the hyphal anastomosis and sequence analysis of the internal transcribed spacers of the ribosomal DNA, 249 isolates (69.94 %) were identified to anastomosis group (AG)-3 PT,(More)
Nine Alternaria species have been reported to be associated with sunflower leaf blight worldwide, and A. helianthi has been recognized as the most prevalent and damaging species. However, the population structure of Alternaria species causing leaf blight of sunflower in China had not been examined thoroughly prior to this study. During 2010 to 2013, a total(More)
With the progress of studies and researches on the biological networks, plenty of excellent clustering algorithms have been proposed. Nevertheless, not only different algorithms but also the same algorithms with different characteristics result in different performances on the same biological networks. Therefore, it might be difficult for researchers to(More)
Identification of protein complexes is crucial to understand principles of cellular organisation and predict protein functions. In this paper, a novel protein complex discovery algorithm IPCIPG is proposed based on the integration of Protein-Protein Interaction network (PPI network) and gene expression data. IPCIPG is a local search algorithm which has two(More)
A binucleate Rhizoctonia (BNR) isolate was recovered from potato subterraneous stems showing canker symptoms, which was collected from Chongqing municipality in southwestern China. This isolate was identified as anastomosis group (AG)-G based on cultural appearance, hyphal anastomosis and sequence analysis of the internal transcribed spacers of ribosomal(More)
A total of 41 Alternaria isolates was recovered from diseased muskmelon leaves with foliar disease symptoms, which were collected from Beijing municipality of China. Thirty-one isolates were identified as Alternaria tenuissima and 10 isolates as A. alternata based on morphological traits, ITS and histone 3 nucleotide sequences. The Alternaria isolates(More)
