DNA-based markers in plants by Ronald L Phillips( Book )

24 editions published between 1994 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 403 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Until very recently genetic maps of higher plants were based almost entirely on morphological and biochemical traits. These maps are rapidly being replaced and/or supplemented with DNA-based marker maps based on the use of powerful new molecular techniques. <br/> The new high precision maps can be developed with comparative ease and rapidity. They have a much higher density of markers, which allows revelation of more and more restricted segments of the genome. One of the many revolutionary aspects of this technology is that linkage between molecular markers and traits of interest often can be detected in a single cross. The ability to hybridize probe after probe to the DNA of the same individuals of a segregating population allows one to pursue the analysis until linkage becomes evident. With morphological and biochemical markers used previously, a separate cross was required to test linkage with each new marker. It was seldom that more than three markers could be tested for linkage with the trait of interest in a single cross because of viability problems. With the new techniques described in this volume, a new gene could be placed on the linkage map within a few days instead of the much longer time required with the previous techniques. <br/> In this book, a group of leading researchers provide background information and the latest versions of DNA-based marker maps for a variety of important crops. These maps illustrate the state of the art today. The progress made during the past five years has been truly phenomenal. <br/>

Field guide to probability, random processes, and random data analysis by Larry C Andrews( Book )

5 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mathematical theory developed in basic courses in engineering and science usually involves deterministic phenomena, and such is the case in solving a differential equation that describes some linear system where both the input and output are deterministic quantities. In practice, however, the input to a linear system, like an imaging system or radar system, may contain a "random" quantity that yields uncertainty about the output. Such systems must be treated by probabilistic methods rather than deterministic methods. For this reason, probability theory and random process theory have become indispensable tools in the mathematical analysis of these kinds of engineering systems. Topics included in this Field Guide are basic probability theory, random processes, random fields, and random data analysis

Laser Marksmanship Evaluation: A Universal Math Model and Experimental Verification( Book )

1 edition published in 1980 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The MILES 105 mm main tank gun transmitter was tested for the potential of using the system as a markmanship trainer. The tests were carried out over a 3000 meter range at the Space Shuttle runway at Kennedy Space Center. Experimental evidence collected in CW laser experiment show that the statistical distribution used in the MILES development, i.e., Log-Normal, is valid only over short ranges. At long ranges the Negative Exponential distribution was measured. A new universal math model was developed which accurately described the statistics of the fluctuation laser signal along the entire range up to 3000 meters. Using this new universal model, the cumulative fading was calculated. This analysis showed that it is the intermediate ranges which have the greatest fading. Based upon the experimental evidence and the math model we conclude that the MILES system is not sufficiently accurate for long range gunnery marksmanship training, but that a new CW laser transmitter and receiver, developed by NTEC in a parallel project, should meet the required accuracy.

Genetics and genomics of the Triticeae by Gary J Muehlbauer( Book )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Together, with the development of the genomic resources, the isolation of the first genes of agronomic interest by map-based cloning has been enabled and has proven the feasibility of forging the link between genotype and phenotype in the Triticeae species. Moreover, the first analyses of BAC sequences from wheat and barley have allowed preliminary characterizations of their genome organization and composition as well as the first inter- and intra-specific comparative genomic studies. These later have revealed important evolutionary mechanisms (e.g. unequal crossing over, illegitimate recombination) that have shaped the wheat and barley genomes during their evolution. These breakthroughs have demonstrated the feasibility of developing efficient genomic studies in the Triticeae and have led to the recent establishment of the International Wheat Genome Sequencing Consortium (IWGSC) (http// and the International Barley Sequencing Consortium ( that aim to sequence, respectively, the hexaploid wheat and barley genomes to accelerate gene discovery and crop improvement in the next decade. Large projects aiming at the establishment of the physical maps as well as a better characterization of their composition and organization through large scale random sequencing projects have been initiated already. Concurrently, a number of projects have been launched to develop high throughput functional genomics in wheat and barley. Transcriptomics, proteomics, and metabolomics analyses of traits of agronomic importance, such as quality, disease resistance, drought, and salt tolerance, are underway in both species. Combined with the development of physical maps, efficient gene isolation will be enabled and improved sequencing technologies and reduced sequencing costs will permit ultimately genome sequencing and access to the entire wheat and barley gene regulatory elements repertoire

Laser beam propagation through random media by Larry C Andrews( Book )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Since publication of the first edition of this text in 1998, there have been several new, important developments in the theory of beam wave propagation through a random medium, which have been incorporated into this second edition. Also new to this edition are models for the scintillation index under moderate-to-strong irradiance fluctuations; models for aperture averaging based on ABCD ray matrices; beam wander and its effects on scintillation; theory of partial coherence of the source; models of rough targets for ladar applications; phase fluctuations; analysis of other beam shapes; plus expanded analysis of free-space optical communication systems and imaging systems
Laser Marksmanship Potential Evaluation: Math Modelling and Experimental Verification( Book )

1 edition published in 1980 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

An analysis of the potential of using MILES systems for long range gunnery training was performed. The analysis centered on the evaluation of the design equations used for the MILES system design. Experiments were conducted at Kennedy Space Center which showed the MILES propagation equations to be accurate at only short ranges i.e. for distances only up to 180 meters. New math models were developed for the propagation of laser light over the long ranges which would be used in gunnery training. These math models were verified in the Kennedy Space Center experiments. An accurate analysis was also performed on the decoding technique of Binary Union Decoding used in the MILES system. This decoding technique was designed to defeat the laser signal fading effects of atmospheric turbulence. At long ranges the Binary Union Decoding technique proved to be less effective then at short ranges. (Author)
