Apolipoprotein A5 (APOA5) and apolipoprotein E (APOE) play important roles in the metabolism of cholesterol and triglycerides. The aim of this study was to determine the allelic and genotypic distributions of the APOA5-1131T>C (rs 662799) and the APOE HhaI polymorphisms and to identify the association of both individual and combined APOA5–APOE genetic(More)
In this paper we describe a visualization system for an emergency simulation. We start by presenting a flooding emergency case scenario and all the elements that are involved in it. Then we describe the design decisions that were made in order to create a credible representation of the scene. This includes using a game engine to render the scenario using a(More)
We describe a visual language focused on the design of agent-based simulation models, considering a simulation environment where agent modeling is mainly concerned with the spatial aspects and constraints of the scenario. Such environment is used to test and validate specific action plans designed for execution in specific real word situations, e.g.,(More)
Helping users to find useful contacts or potentially interesting subjects is a challenge for social and productive networks. The evidence of the content produced by users must be considered in this task, which may be simplified by the use of the meta-data associated with the content, i.e., The categorization supported by the network--descriptive keywords,(More)
In this paper we describe a proposal for information organization for computer supported cooperative work, while working with spatial information. It is focused on emergency response plan construction, and the requirements extracted from that task. At the centre of our proposal is the analysis of the structure of the cooperative workspace. We argue that the(More)
Recommending interesting locations to users is a challenge for social and productive networks. The evidence of the content produced by users must be considered in this task, which may be simplified by the use of the meta-data associated with the content, i.e., the categorization supported by the network -- descriptive keywords and geographic coordinates.

Recent studies have shown an association between thrombosis and factor VII (FVII), tissue factor (TF), and angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE). This suggests that individuals with FVII-402 G/A, FVII-401 G/T, TF+5466 A/G, and ACE-287 insertion/deletion (I/D) polymorphisms present an increased risk of venous thrombosis, heart disease, and ischemic stroke(More)
Runnup and overtopping are the two main sea wave originated events that threat coastal structures. These events may cause destruction of property and the environment, and endanger people. To build early warning forecast systems, we must take into account the consequence and risk characterization of the events in the affected area, and understand how these(More)
