Sacred lotus is a basal eudicot with agricultural, medicinal, cultural and religious importance. It was domesticated in Asia about 7,000 years ago, and cultivated for its rhizomes and seeds as a food crop. It is particularly noted for its 1,300-year seed longevity and exceptional water repellency, known as the lotus effect. The latter property is due to the(More)
The genus Nelumbo Adans. comprises two living species, N. nucifera Gaertan. (Asian lotus) and N. lutea Pers. (American lotus). A genetic linkage map is an essential resource for plant genetic studies and crop improvement but has not been generated for Nelumbo. We aimed to develop genomic simple sequence repeat (SSR) markers from the genome sequence and(More)
The booming of Internet has brought new challenges to software engineering. In the network age, software industry has undergone a transition from manufacturing industry to the service trade, software doesnpsilat have clear hierarchy structure, specific life cycle and definite system border any longer. On the contrary, both software itself and the(More)
There has been considerable interest in designing algorithms for detecting community structure in real-world complex networks. A majority of these algorithms assume that communities are disjoint, placing each vertex in only one cluster. However, in nature, it is a matter of common experience that communities often overlap and members often play multiple(More)
Traditional measurements provide an effective tool to study the complex large systems in the real world. These global quantities only analyze the general statistical properties and interconnectivity structure of the entire network. However the complicated interactions among the locals are indeed the origin to emergent complex behavior. So in this paper we(More)
In this work, we tested a novel iron metal matrix composite (MMC) synthesized by mechanically introducing quartz sand (SiO2) into an iron matrix (denoted as SiO2-Fe MMC). The pseudo-first-order reaction rate constant of the SiO2-Fe MMC (initial pH 5.0) for 20 mg/L of 2-chlorophenol (2-CP) was 0.051 × 10(-3) L/m(2)/min, which was even higher than that of(More)
Recently, energy harvesting technology has been introduced into wireless sensor networks to solve the traditional battery-powered energy bottleneck problem. However, due to battery capacity limitation, the harvested energy would overflow while the nodes are in the energy saturation status. Aiming at this, we consider topology control approach in the EHWSNs(More)
