Rare sugars, referred to as monosaccharides and their derivatives that rarely exist in nature, can be applied in many areas ranging from foodstuffs to pharmaceutical and nutrition industry, or as starting materials for various natural products and drug candidates. Unfortunately, an important factor restricting the utilization of rare sugars is their limited(More)
The first doubled haploid (DH) population of Porphyra haitanensis was created by crossing a wild-type line with a red type, artificial pigmentation, mutant line, by means of single somatic cell clone cultivation. Six quantitative traits (frond length (FL), frond width (FW), frond thickness (FT), fresh weight (W), growth rate of frond length (LGR), and(More)
Brown tides caused by the excessive growth of the pelagophyte Aureococcus anophagefferens have occurred frequently in Qinhuangdao, China, since 2009. In this study, the temporal and spatial variations of A. anophagefferens and Minutocellus polymorphus were analyzed using real-time fluorescent quantitative PCR. The relationship between nutrient contents and(More)
The use of whole-genome resequencing to obtain more information on genetic variation could produce a range of benefits for the dairy cattle industry, especially with regard to increasing milk production and improving milk composition. In this study, we sequenced the genomes of eight Holstein bulls from four half- or full-sib families, with high and low(More)
Our initial RNA sequencing (RNA-seq) revealed that the Serum amyloid A1 (SAA1) gene was differentially expressed in the mammary glands of lactating Holstein cows with extremely high versus low phenotypic values of milk protein and fat percentage. To further validate the genetic effect and potential molecular mechanisms of SAA1 gene involved in regulating(More)
(2015) Characterizing the Interactions Among a Dinoflagellate, Flagellate and Bacteria in the Phycosphere of Alexandrium tamarense (Dinophyta). A small flagellate alga was isolated from the phycosphere of a toxic red tide dinoflagellate Alexandrium tamarense. Phylogenetic analysis and ultrastructural observations demonstrated that the small flagellate alga(More)
In this work, a method for automatic identification of round diatoms based on image texture features is presented. This method combines segmentation adjustment by curve fitting and texture measures based on the spectrum features. The classification accuracy was tested using leave on out methods. With classification carried out using a BP neural network we(More)
