WRKY III genes have significant functions in regulating plant development and resistance. In plant, WRKY gene family has been studied in many species, however, there still lack a comprehensive analysis of WRKY III genes in the woody plant species poplar, three representative lineages of flowering plant species are incorporated in most analyses: Arabidopsis(More)
This work examines the relationship between 3-year pedestrian crash counts across Census tracts in Austin, Texas, and various land use, network, and demographic attributes, such as land use balance, residents' access to commercial land uses, sidewalk density, lane-mile densities (by roadway class), and population and employment densities (by type). The(More)
This paper develops an estimation strategy for and then applies a spatial autoregressive multinomial probit (SAR MNP) model to account for both spatial clustering and cross-alternative correlation. Estimation is achieved using Bayesian techniques with Gibbs and the generalized direct sampling (GDS). The model is applied to analyze land development decisions(More)
Members of the plant-specific IQ67-domain (IQD) protein family are involved in plant development and the basal defense response. Although systematic characterization of this family has been carried out in Arabidopsis, tomato (Solanum lycopersicum), Brachypodium distachyon and rice (Oryza sativa), systematic analysis and expression profiling of this gene(More)
Self-organized gallium nitride nanodots have been fabricated using droplet heteroepitaxy on c-plane sapphire by plasma-assisted molecular beam epitaxy at different substrate temperatures and Ga fluxes. Nanoscale Ga droplets were initially formed on the sapphire substrate at high temperatures by Ga deposition from an effusion cell in an ultrahigh vacuum(More)
18 This work examines the relationship between 3-year pedestrian crash counts across Census tracts 19 in Austin, Texas, while controlling for land use, network, and demographic attributes. The model 26 having a high share of residences near transit stops is associated with higher pedestrian crash 27 risks, presumably since such access encourages more(More)
This study aims to determine the specificity of anti-human epidermal growth factor receptor antibody (anti-HER2) modified monomethoxy polyethylene glycol-chitosan (mPEG-CS) nanoparticles (anti-HER2/mPEG-CS NPs) in delivering small interfering RNA (siRNA) to the human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2) positive cancer cells. Physicochemical properties(More)
36 37 Geographically weighted regression (GWR) enjoys wide application in regional science, 38 thanks to its relatively straightforward formulation and explicit treatment of spatial effects. 39 However, its application to discrete-response data sets and land use change at the level of 40 urban parcels has remained a novelty. This work combines logit(More)
Whole-genome duplication events played important roles in the evolution of angiosperms. Many modern angiosperms genomes have experienced one or more rounds of paleopolyploidy. Given that an ancient large-scale duplication will result in an excess of relatively old duplicated genes with similar ages, we analyzed the timing of duplication pairs in four model(More)
