Fast algorithms are important for efficient image processing systems for handling large set of calculations. To speedup the processing, parallel implementation of an algorithm can be done using Graphics Processing Unit (GPU). GPU is general purpose computation hardware; programmability and low cost make it productive. Binarization is widely used technique(More)
Purification and characterization of halotolerant, thermostable alkaline L-glutaminase from a Bacillus sp. LKG-01 (MTCC 10401), isolated from Gangotri region of Uttarakhand Himalaya, is being reported in this paper. Enzyme has been purified 49-fold from cell-free extract with 25% recovery (specific activity 584.2 U/mg protein) by (NH₄)₂SO₄ precipitation(More)
Ethanol production from sugarcane bagasse pith hydrolysate by thermotolerant yeast Kluyveromyces sp. IIPE453 was analyzed using response surface methodology. Variables such as Substrate Concentration, pH, fermentation time and Na2HPO4 concentration were found to influence ethanol production significantly. In a batch fermentation, optimization of key process(More)
The first ribonuclease (RNase) from the Cytophaga-Flavobacterium-Bacteroides phylum, dominant in the marine environment, and also from the first Bizionia species isolated from the tropics was purified and characterized. Extracellular RNase production occurred when the culture medium contained 5-7% (w/v) NaCl. The 53.0 kDa enzyme was purified 29 folds with a(More)
Fast and accurate algorithms are necessary for Optical Character Recognition (OCR) systems to perform operations on document images such as pre-processing, segmentation, feature extraction, training and testing of classifiers and post processing. Text line and word segmentation are two important steps in any OCR system. Wrong segmentation may affect the(More)
Image processing and pattern recognition algorithms take more time for execution on a single core processor. Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) is more popular now-a-days due to their speed, programmability, low cost and more inbuilt execution cores in it. Most of the researchers started work to use GPUs as a processing unit with a single core computer system(More)
Binarization is widely used technique in many of the image processing applications. Fast algorithms are needed for fast and efficient image processing systems. Many algorithms of image processing and pattern recognition have recently been implemented on Graphic Processing Unit (GPU) for faster computational times. GPUs are most prominent hardware in
In this paper, we present JADE, a framework that allows a developer to mix C and JavaScript constructs with JADE supplied keywords to construct a complete program to solve a particular computing activity in a `thing'. We describe the language constructs introduced by JADE and explain how they can be used to implement different software interaction patterns(More)
This study analyzes the single cell oil (SCO), fatty acid profile, and biodiesel fuel properties of the yeast Rhodotorula mucilaginosa IIPL32 grown on the pentose fraction of acid pre-treated sugarcane bagasse as a carbon source. The yeast biomass from nitrogen limiting culture conditions (15.3 g L-1 ) was able to give the SCO yield of 0.17 g g-1 of xylose(More)
There are numerous stylish documents which do not have the traditional text layouts where printed text regions are not parallel to each other. Such complex layouts make text line extraction challenging due to multi-orientation of paragraphs. This paper introduces a system for the text line extraction from the complex layout documents. Proposed method is(More)
