  • Publication number: 20190233480
    Abstract: The invention provides methods for improving plant yield, biomass accumulation and stress tolerance. According to the invention applications have discovered that a novel AP2-like transcription factor MPG1, which when modulated impacts grain yield, biomass and abiotic and biotic stress tolerance when compared to non-modulated plants. The invention further provides methods using recombinant expression cassettes, host cells, transgenic plants and breeding methods using the same.

  • Patent number: 5539452
    Abstract: Apparatus and method are provided for the simultaneous transmission of video information and audio information in substantially real time over an ordinary voice grade telephone line having limited bandwidth in the range of about 300-3400 Hz. Because of the limited bandwidth of the ordinary telephone line, the video and audio information are compressed before transmission thereof. Each of the video information and audio information is separately compressed, mixed together and then further compressed. After the further compression, a composite signal, which includes the mixture of video and audio information, is asynchronously transmitted over the same bandwidth of the ordinary telephone line. Upon reception, the compressed information is expanded and separate video information and audio information are reproduced for viewing and hearing by the receiving party. To reduce the size of the apparatus, application specific integrated circuits (ASICs) are employed.

  • Patent number: 4995036
    Abstract: A multichannel data compressor (20) for a data transmission system having a plurality of data sources. The multichannel data compressor has a plurality of data latches (44,46,48) for temporarily storing the data generated by each data source and a plurality of difference circuits (52,54,56), one for each data source, which subtract the data stored in the data latches from the next subsequent data value generated by the data sources to generate a difference data value. A plurality of summing circuits (58,60,62) sum the difference data values to generate a plurality of composite data values. A selector switch (64) transfers the composite data values or selected current data values to a multiplexer (72) when the magnitude of at least one of the composite data values exceeds a predetermined value. The multiplexer (72) formats the received data into a predetermined format, converts it to a serial format, then forwards the data to a transmitter for transmission.
