BACKGROUND Cocos nucifera (coconut), a member of the Arecaceae family, is an economically important woody palm grown in tropical regions. Despite its agronomic importance, previous germplasm assessment studies have relied solely on morphological and agronomical traits. Molecular biology techniques have been scarcely used in assessment of genetic resources(More)
MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are important regulators of gene expression at the post-transcriptional level in a wide range of species. Highly conserved miRNAs regulate ancestral transcription factors common to all plants, and control important basic processes such as cell division and meristem function. We selected 21 conserved miRNA families to analyze the(More)
Simple sequence repeat (SSR) markers have been widely used to evaluate genetic resources and assist crop breeding in plant systems: they are codominant, easy to score and have abundant polymorphisms. In this study, we used coconut transcriptome sequences to determine the distribution characteristics of gene-based microsatellite loci in Cocos nucifera L. and(More)
Dynamic oxygen vacancies play a significant role in memristive switching materials and memristors can be realized via well controlled doping. Based on this idea we deposite Nb₂O₅-NaNbO₃ nanocomposite thin films on SrRuO₃-buffered LaAlO₃ substrates. Through the spontaneous phase separation and self-assembly growth, two phases form clear vertical(More)
Parallel garbage collection has been used to speedup the collection process on multicore architectures. Similar to other parallel techniques, balancing the workload among threads is critical to ensuring good overall collection performance. To this end, work stealing is employed by the current state-of-the-art Java Virtual Machine, OpenJDK, to keep GC(More)
