In particular, we claim that organisms are information-processing(More)
High-performance firewalls can benefit from the increasing size, speed and flexibility of advanced reconfig-urable hardware. However, direct translation of conventional firewall rules in a router-based rule set often leads to inefficient hardware implementation. Moreover, such low-level description of firewall rules tends to be difficult to manage and to(More)
Variations in either the polypeptide sequence or the carbohydrate moieties of transferrin may result in altered electrophoretic mobility of this molecule. We report a case of an allelic (polypeptide) variant of transferrin with mobility similar to that of the beta 2 (sialic acid-depleted) transferrin found in cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) and a few other body(More)
