  • Publication number: 20190316142
    Abstract: The invention relates to gene expression regulatory sequences, specifically introns that act as enhancers of gene expression, the promoter and terminator sequences endogenously associated with these introns. Presence of these intronic enhancer sequences in proximity to promoter sequences leads to enhancement of gene expression. Methods of finding such new intronic enhancer sequences and using them to generate transgenic plants are also described.

  • Patent number: 10423999
    Abstract: Techniques are described for determining personalized category-based product information for a user. The described techniques may in some situations be used by or on behalf of an online retailer to determine a sorted order of at least some products within a product category for the online retailer to display to a customer user on a category-specific Web page of the online retailer, such as based on a browse request by the customer for that category or on another identification of the category by the customer. The determination of particular personalized category-based sorted products for such a customer may in some situations be performed based at least in part on prior activities of the customer, including prior interactions by the customer with the online retailer (e.g., actions by the customer to view and/or purchase particular products, product brands, product sub-categories, product sizes, etc.).

  • Patent number: 9639846
    Abstract: An arrangement for providing targeted content includes data repositories storing information from which targeted content may be selected. The data repositories store at least one contextual relationship graph. The arrangement also includes an input/output interface through which a request for targeted content is made. The arrangement further includes a controller that receives the request for targeted content and selects targeted content using the contextual relationship graph. The controller further provides the selected targeted content through the input/output interface.

  • Publication number: 20160024513
    Abstract: A truncated stress-responsive transcription factor can be overexpressed without causing unfavorable pleiotropic effects. The truncation may result in deletion of a nuclear localization signal. The truncation may result in deletion of one or more regulatory motifs. The truncated transcription factor may be expressed under the control of a constitutive or tissue-preferred promoter. The transcription factor may be from maize.

  • Patent number: 8735652
    Abstract: The present disclosure concerns methods and compositions relating to UXS polypeptides and/or nucleic acids encoding UXS polypeptides. In certain claims, the methods and compositions are of use to improve digestibility and/or ease of grain processing. Such improvements relate to a modulation in arabinoxylan and/or hemicellulose content in transgenic plants. Such plants can, for example, comprise one or more nucleic acid sequences that inhibit expression of one or more UDP-Xylose Synthase (USX) genes.

  • Patent number: 8316201
    Abstract: The embodiments described herein provide methods for executing a command to write data from a source location to a destination location in a memory device. In one embodiment, a memory device receives, from a host device, a command to write data from a source location to a destination location in the memory device. The memory device executes the command by changing the memory device's logical-to-physical address map without reading the data from the source location and writing the data to the destination location and without a need of further involvement of the host device after the host device sends the command to the memory device.

  • Patent number: 8185685
    Abstract: An electronic memory module according to the invention provides non-volatile memory that can be used in place of a DRAM module without battery backup. An embodiment of the invention includes an embedded microprocessor with microcode that translates the FB-DIMM address and control signals from the system into appropriate address and control signals for NAND flash memory. Wear-leveling, bad block management, garbage collection are preferably implemented by microcode executed by the microprocessor. The microprocessor, additional logic, and embedded memory provides the functions of a flash memory controller. The microprocessor memory preferably contains address mapping tables, free page queue, and garbage collection information.
