We are witnessing a proliferation of massive visual data. Unfortunately scaling existing computer vision algorithms to large datasets leaves researchers repeatedly solving the same algorithmic, logistical, and infrastructural problems. Our goal is to democratize computer vision; one should not have to be a computer vision , big data and distributed(More)
Members of transforming growth factor-beta (TGF-beta) superfamily play pivotal roles in development in multicellular organisms. We report the functional characterization of the Schistosoma mansoni type II receptor (SmTbetaRII). Mining of the S. mansoni expressed sequence tag (EST) database identified an EST clone that shows homology to the kinase domain of(More)
Cryptosporidium is a significant cause of diarrheal disease in developing and industrialized nations. Cryptosporidium hominis and Cryptosporidium parvum are the main agents of cryptosporidiosis in humans. In Egypt, very little is known about genetic structure of Cryptosporidium spp. Therefore, this study was designed to examine samples from sporadic cases(More)
This paper presents different flow-based transmission cost allocation (TCA) schemes for distributing the transmission usage costs to system individuals. Different independent system operator (ISO) visions are suggested using the proportional rata method. In addition to the suggested schemes, three other approaches are proposed. The first proposed approach(More)
Determination of optimum feed forward artificial neural network (ANN) design and training parameters is an extremely important mission. It is a challenging and daunting task to find an ANN design, which is effective and accurate. This paper presents a new methodology for the optimization of ANN parameters as it introduces a process of training ANN which is(More)
Nano selenium-Lovastatin mixture (Lov-Se) has antioxidant and free radical scavenging activities. A laboratory preparation of nano selenium-lovastatin mixture was examined against oxidative injury in gamma irradiated rats. Rats were exposed to whole body gamma radiation (2 Gy every 3 days up to total dose of 8 Gy) and received daily oral administration of(More)
