Avian polyomavirus (APV) causes an acute fatal disease in a variety of avian species. DNA laddering indicating apoptosis was demonstrated in APV-infected chicken embryo (CE) cells. DNA laddering, however, was not observed in Vero cells infected with mammalian polyomavirus simian virus 40. Expression of APV agnoprotein 1a and agnoprotein 1b induced apoptosis(More)
The kinetics of infectious bursal disease virus (IBDV) replication and induction of apoptosis were investigated in vitro and in vivo. After infection of chicken embryo (CE) cells with IBDV strain Cu-1, the proportion of apoptotic cells increased from 5.8% at 4 h post-infection (p.i.) to 64.5% at 48 h p.i. The proportion of apoptotic cells correlated with(More)
The as a Service paradigm reflects the fundamental idea of providing basic coherent functionality in terms of components that can be utilized on demand. These so-called services may also be interconnected in order to provide more complex functionality. Automation of this service composition process is indeed a formidable challenge. In our work, we are(More)
As long as visual features for recognition are known in advance and remain static due to a controlled environment, object tracking is state-of-the-art. Tracking objects in dynamically changing environments is still a challenge. Even harder is the tracking of moving objects with a moving camera. Our algorithm realizes a deterministic approach to track any(More)
On-the-fly composition of service-based software solutions is still a challenging task. Even more challenges emerge when facing automatic service composition in markets of composed services for end users. In this paper, we focus on the functional discrepancy between “what a user wants” specified in terms of a request and “what a user gets” when executing a(More)
Automatically composing service-based software solutions is still a challenging task. Functional as well as non-functional properties have to be considered in order to satisfy individual user requests. Regarding non-functional properties, the composition process can be modeled as optimization problem and solved accordingly. Functional properties, in turn,(More)
In this paper an approach for automatic feature classification based on their motion in the image plane is introduced. By combining concepts of the human perception of motion with techniques belonging to the area of cluster analysis, we subsequently abstract the visual data in order to separate features, whose motion is caused by the sensor motion from(More)
