How do Plants Sense Heavy Metal Pollutants?
Hao-Jen Huang

Environmental stresses, including biotic and abiotic stresses, are important factors that affect growth and development of land plants. Heavy metal toxicity is one of the major environmental health problems in modern society, ...

High-Temperature Stable HfLaON p-MOSFETs With High-Work-Function Ir3Si Gate
S. J. Wang

Based on the International Technology Roadmap for Semiconductors, the metal-gate/high- is the required technology for the future generation complementary MOSFETs to reduce the undesired large gate leakage current and continue the gate oxide scaling. ...

Real-time probabilistic forecasting of flood stages
Pao-Shan Yu

In Taiwan, typhoons and southwestern convective storms that bring heavy rainfall frequently cause severe disasters due to the flash floods. The flood stage rises shortly following the beginning of a rainstorm because catchments are steep and rainfall are of high intensity. ...

Impact of Procedualized Peer Review Training on Revision Quality
Hui-Tzu Min

The practice of peer response/review has been burgeoning in both L1 and ESL/EFL writing classes since last decade, given its strong support from social learning and rhetorical theories. Yet studies which have examined the extent to which peer feedback is incorporated into students’ subsequent revisions revealed a low ratio. ...

Design and Evaluation of a Low-Latency Checkpointing Scheme for Mobile Computing Systems
LihChyun Shu

It is well recognized that fault-tolerant solutions developed for conventional distributed systems are not appropriate in the mobile environments due to the characteristics of mobile networks and devices. We propose a concurrent checkpointing technique which aims to reduce the checkpoint latency in the mobile environment. ...

Microsatellite in the 3’ untranslated region of human fibroblast growth factor 9 (FGF9) gene exhibits pleiotropic effect on modulating FGF9 protein expression
H. Sunny Sun

Bckground- Many mammalian FGFs are expressed abundantly in a specific spatial and temporal pattern and considered to play substantial roles in development, ...

High Sensitive Microfluidic Chips for Estrogen-Related Protein Binding
Shu-Hui Chen

Estrogen (17β-estradiol, E2) is an ovarian hormone necessary for the development of secondary sexual characteristics and function of the reproductive system in females. The estrogen action, however, is complicated by the interaction of E2 with two receptors, ERα and ERβ. ...
