A much-needed effort in this new premise is a better understanding of how attackers might behave within a well-protected network. Attack behavior analysis can benefit from(More)
Maturity Onset Diabetes of the Young (MODY) is a monogenic form of diabetes. It consists of a heterogeneous group of autosomal dominant inherited disorders, with typical onset in individuals aged less than twenty five years. There are several different sub-types of MODY which can be precisely identified using molecular genetic testing. Modes of presentation(More)
