Powdery mildew is one of the most important diseases of cucumber (Cucumis sativus L.). For many years, researchers have studied and attempted to isolate resistance genes for this disease for breeding powdery mildew-resistant cucumber. In this study, bulked segregant analysis and an initial quantitative trait loci (QTLs) analysis based on a local linkage map(More)
OBJECTIVES To automatically evaluate the quality of health information on the Internet, we presents a method for detecting indicators for quality of health information. METHODS An automatic indicator detection tool (AIDT) was developed in the following steps: (1) 18 initial technical criteria were chosen; (2) multiple measurable indicators were defined(More)
Simple clustering methods such as hierarchical clustering and k-means are widely used for gene expression data analysis; but they are unable to deal with noise and high dimensionality associated with the microarray gene expression data. Consensus clustering appears to improve the robustness and quality of clustering results. Incorporating prior knowledge in(More)
Dull/glossy fruit skin is a highly valuable external quality trait that affects the market value of cucumbers. In this study, genetic analysis showed that one single dominant gene, D (dull fruit skin), determines the dull fruit skin trait in cucumber. By combining bulked segregant analysis with 11 published polymorphic molecular markers on chromosome 5, the(More)
A three-dimensionally (3D) ordered freestanding porous platinum (Pt) nanowire array electrode (PPNWAE) with pores of several nanometers in size and a Pt nanowire array electrode (PNWAE) without pores were facilely fabricated by metal electrodeposition and direct integration with a Pt disk electrode. The unusual PPNWAE with high active area showed excellent(More)
