This paper provides a survey of the research done on optimization in dynamic environments over the past decade. We show an analysis of the most commonly used problems, methods and measures together with the newer approaches and trends, as well as their interrelations and common ideas. The survey is supported by a public web repository, located at(More)
BACKGROUND Hemoglobin is a rich source of biologically active peptides, some of which are potent antimicrobials (hemocidins). A few hemocidins have been purified from the midgut contents of ticks. Nonetheless, how antimicrobials are generated in the tick midgut and their role in immunity is still poorly understood. Here we report, for the first time, the(More)
In vertebrates, Evx homeodomain transcription factor-encoding genes are expressed in the posterior region during embryonic development, and overexpression experiments have revealed roles in tail development in fish and frogs. We analyzed the molecular mechanisms of posterior neural development and axis formation regulated by eve1. We show that eve1 is(More)
BACKGROUND Chronic refractory angina is a challenging clinical problem with limited treatment options. The results of early cardiovascular stem cell trials using ABMMC have been promising but have utilized intracoronary or intramyocardial delivery. The goal of the study was to evaluate the safety and early efficacy of autologous bone marrow derived(More)
SUMMARY Introduction The first and only nationally representative prevalence estimates of psychiatric disorders in Mexico (the Mexican National Comorbidity Survey) indicate sex differences in the expression of psychopathology and early ages of onset for most disorders, often in the adolescent years. Studies from other countries have shown that sex(More)
Sexism and sexual harassment are not uncommon in online environments such as social networking sites, forums, and video games. This experiment investigated whether users' anonymity and level of interactivity with sexist content on social media influenced sexist attitudes and offline behavior. Participants (N = 172) used a Twitter account that was anonymous(More)
Nature is an unlimited source of resilient, robust, fine tuned, complex mechanisms and phenomena which have been the subject of exploration and exploitation in science and engineering. In particular, understanding complex cooperative systems in nature has driven computer scientists and practitioners to outstanding developments ranging from versatile models(More)
A study was aimed to evaluate the effects of cashew nut meal inclusion (CNM) on nutrient digestibility, performance and carcass characteristics of meat quails. A total of 432 meat quails with 7 days of age, were distributed in a completely randomized design with six treatments and nine replicates of eight birds each. Treatments were obtained with inclusion(More)
