BACKGROUND Wheat is a major crop in the world, and the high temperature stress can reduce the yield of wheat by as much as 15%. The molecular changes in response to heat stress are poorly understood. Using GeneChip Wheat Genome Array, we analyzed genome-wide gene expression profiles in the leaves of two wheat genotypes, namely, heat susceptible 'Chinese(More)
Heat stress is an important agricultural problem around the world. In pepper (Capsicum annum L.), heat stress seriously affects pollination and yield. However, to date, the molecular basis of heat stress has not been extensively studied. Using the HiSeq™ 2000 sequencing platform, the seedling transcriptome of heat-susceptible C.annuum ‘S590’(CaS) and(More)
Mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR), a serine/threonine kinase, regulates many processes, including cell growth and the immune response. mTOR is also dysregulated in several neurological diseases, such as traumatic brain injury (TBI), stroke, and neurodegenerative disease. However, the role of mTOR in intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) remains unexplored. The(More)
—We propose a new no-reference image quality assessment model nPSNR (No-reference PSNR) for JPEG compressed images. The model performs in DCT domain and the DCT coefficient distribution is used. This method estimates the MSQE (mean-squared quantization error) of a decoded image with the distributions of AC coefficients and DC coefficients of the encoded(More)
