We study Sequenced Group Trip Planning Queries (SGTPQs). Consider a road network where some vertices represent Points of interest (POIs) and each POI belongs to exactly one Category of Interest (COI), e.g., A COI can be "Restaurants" and each POI in this COI is a specific instance of a restaurant. Given a group of users, each starting from a (possibly(More)
These days mobile target tracking is considered as one of the important applications of wireless sensor networks. In this regard, the clustering structure is one of the most applicable network structures. In this paper, we suggested a new method for target tracking that makes adaptation with target mobility model. This method utilizes two tools to create(More)
BACKGROUND Group A Rotaviruses (GARV) are the main viral cause of acute gastroenteritis, leading to 870,000 deaths annually in the developing world and representing a major health problem. Therefore, diagnosis and treatment of this disease are crucial. Gene rearrangement within segmented viruses as well as rotavirus is seen throughout chronic rotavirus(More)
The northwest of Iran shares long borders with three neighboring countries; therefore, it is considered one of the main entry portals of Newcastle disease virus (NDV) into the country. Ten virulent NDVs were recovered from 19 poultry farms of various prefectures in northwestern Iran during Newcastle disease outbreaks in 2010. The isolates were genotypically(More)
In this paper, we investigate a novel query type for road networks, namely the <i>k-Optimal Meeting Points based on Preferred paths</i> (k-<i>OMP</i><sup>3</sup>) query. Consider a group of friends currently at different places, e.g., their offices. Before going to their respective homes, using their own preferred paths in the underlying road network, the(More)
The aim of this study is to isolate and identify Lactobacillus plantarum isolates from traditional cheese, Kouzeh, and evaluate their antimicrobial activity against some food pathogens. In total, 56 lactic acid bacteria were isolated by morphological and biochemical methods, 12 of which were identified as Lactobacillus plantarum by biochemical method and 11(More)
OBJECTIVE Color match between fiber-reinforced composite (FRC) restorations and teeth is an imperative factor in esthetic dentistry. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the influence of veneering composites and fibers on the color change of FRC restorations. MATERIALS AND METHODS Glass and polyethylene fibers were used to reinforce a direct(More)
