Eleven tandemly repetitive sequences were identified from a Cot-1 library by FISH and sequence analysis of alfalfa (Medicago sativa). Five repetitive sequences (MsCR-1, MsCR-2, MsCR-3, MsCR-4, and MsCR-5) were centromeric or pericentromeric, of which three were satellite DNAs and two were minisatellite DNAs. Monomers of 144, 148, and 168 bp were identified(More)
Siberian wildrye, Elymus sibiricus L., is an important perennial forage crop in temperate regions of the world, especially in the Qinghai–Tibet plateau. However, it is now threatened by climate warming, excessive grazing, and damage to its natural habitat. A total of 53 polymorphic genomic-SSR markers were isolated and characterized in E. sibiricus. The(More)

In nature, plants are often exposed to multiple stress factors at the same time. Yet, little is known about how plants modulate their physiology to counteract simultaneous abiotic and biotic stresses, such as soil salinity and insect herbivory. In this study, insect performance bioassays, phytohormone measurements, quantification of transcripts, and protein(More)
This paper addresses the issue of hosting multiple clusters of Virtual Machines (i.e., multiple Virtual Clusters) in a single physical cluster system. Multiple Virtual Clusters (VCs) cohabit in the physical cluster, with different VCs serving different types of requests. There are two levels of VC managers in the framework: local manager and global manager.(More)

Cuscuta spp. (i.e., dodders) are stem parasites that naturally graft to their host plants to extract water and nutrients; multiple adjacent hosts are often parasitized by one or more Cuscuta plants simultaneously, forming connected plant clusters. Metabolites, proteins, and mRNAs are known to be transferred from hosts to Cuscuta, and Cuscuta bridges even(More)
Wild Triticeae grasses serve as important gene pools for forage and cereal crops. Based on DNA sequences of genome-specific RAPD markers, sequence-tagged site (STS) markers specific for W and Y genomes have been obtained. Coupling with the use of genomic in situ hybridization, these STS markers enabled the identification of the W- and Y-genome chromosomes(More)
