Analytical network process based optimum cluster head selection in wireless sensor network

Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) are becoming ubiquitous in everyday life due to their applications in weather forecasting, surveillance, implantable sensors for health monitoring and other plethora of applications. WSN is equipped with hundreds and thousands of small sensor nodes. As the size of a sensor node decreases, critical issues such as limited energy, computation time and ...

What are farmers really planting? Measuring the presence and effectiveness of Bt cotton in Pakistan

Genetically modified, insect-resistant Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) cotton is cultivated extensively in Pakistan. Past studies, however, have raised concerns about the prevalence of Bt cotton varieties possessing weak or nonperforming insect-resistance traits conferred by the cry gene. We examine this issue using data drawn from a representative sample of cotton-growing households ...

Thermal degradation of aqueous 2-aminoethylethanolamine in CO2 capture; identification of degradation products, reaction mechanisms and computational studies

Amine degradation is the main significant problems in amine-based post-combustion CO2 capture, causes foaming, increase in viscosity, corrosion, fouling as well as environmental issues. Therefore it is very important to develop the most efficient solvent with high thermal and chemical stability. This study investigated thermal degradation of aqueous 30% 2-aminoethylethanolamine ...

Fuzzy Logic Based Edge Detection in Smooth and Noisy Clinical Images

Edge detection has beneficial applications in the fields such as machine vision, pattern recognition and biomedical imaging etc. Edge detection highlights high frequency components in the image. Edge detection is a challenging task. It becomes more arduous when it comes to noisy images. This study focuses on fuzzy logic based edge detection in smooth and noisy clinical images. The ...

Gibbago trianthemae causes Trianthema portulacastrum (horse purslane) blight in Pakistan

Trianthema portulacastrum (horse purslane) is among the most noxious summer annual weeds in Pakistan. During June 2010–2012, a severe outbreak of leaf and stem blight was observed for the first time on T. portulacastrum in Pakistan. Symptoms on leaves and stems were examined as round to oval straw colored spots with maroon margins. As the disease progressed, affected leaves became ...

Regioselective synthesis of 2-(bromomethyl)-5-aryl-thiophene derivatives viapalladium (0) catalyzed suzuki cross-coupling reactions: as antithrombotic and haemolytically active molecules

Background It is seen that the regioselective functionalizations of halogenated heterocycles play an important role in the synthesis of several types of organic compounds. In this domain, the Suzuki-Miyaura reaction has emerged as a convenient way to build carbon-carbon bonds in synthesizing organic compounds. Some of the most important applications of these reactions can be seen ...

Direct Quadrature Conditional Moment Closure for Modelling of Turbulent Combustion

Shaukat Ali Alexander Vikhansky Terese Lvs We present a method of direct quadrature conditional moment closure (DQCMC) for the treatment of realistic turbulence-chemistry interaction in

Large-Scale Assessment of the Zebrafish Embryo as a Possible Predictive Model in Toxicity Testing

Background In the drug discovery pipeline, safety pharmacology is a major issue. The zebrafish has been proposed as a model that can bridge the gap in this field between cell assays (which are cost-effective, but low in data content) and rodent assays (which are high in data content, but less cost-efficient). However, zebrafish assays are only likely to be useful if they can be ...

Large-Scale Analysis of Acute Ethanol Exposure in Zebrafish Development: A Critical Time Window and Resilience

Background In humans, ethanol exposure during pregnancy causes a spectrum of developmental defects (fetal alcohol syndrome or FAS). Individuals vary in phenotypic expression. Zebrafish embryos develop FAS-like features after ethanol exposure. In this study, we ask whether stage-specific effects of ethanol can be identified in the zebrafish, and if so, whether they allow the ...
