These systems collect data from pre-selected data sources somehow related to the subject. However, other sources, like web social networks, may present early evidences of an infection event. With the increasing popularity of(More)
Candidate gene identification deals with associating genes to underlying biological phenomena, such as diseases and specific disorders. It has been shown that classes of diseases with similar phenotypes are caused by functionally related genes. Currently, a fair amount of knowledge about the functional characterization can be found across several public(More)
The increasing use of productivity and impact metrics for evaluation and comparison, not only of individual researchers but also of institutions, universities and even countries, has prompted the development of biblio-metrics. Currently, metrics are becoming widely accepted as an easy and balanced way to assist the peer review and evaluation of scientists(More)
The increasing use of citation impact metrics for evaluation and comparison not only of individual researchers but also of institutions, universities and even countries has prompted the development of bibliometrics. Currently, these metrics are becoming widely accepted as an easy and balanced way to compare and rank scientists and/or research units. This(More)
Despite the advances in the development and certification of binary code for high criticality environments, these are not yet transposable to the systems configuration development domain. From spreadsheets to scripts, many tools are used in a sometimes unstructured development process for configuration artefacts. To answer this challenge, a sophisticated(More)
