This experiment was designed to quantify the relationships between feed chemistry and the proportions of rumen volatile fatty acids (VFA) across a wide range of feedstuffs. In an experiment using 11 rumencannulated sheep, 16 test feeds were fed at three different inclusion rates in rations that were based on grass silage. The 17 periods of the experiment(More)
Cloud based e-Commerce applications are favored over traditional systems due to their capacity to reduce costs in various aspects like use of resources, low operating costs, eliminate capital costs, low maintenance and service costs. Its core functionality of optimizing performance and its automatic system recovery is crucial in web applications. Using a(More)
The traditional function point approach has been well documented. Despite increasing popularity, investigations have shown a number of weaknesses. There is evidence that simple metrics may be as good as function points for early lifecycle estimates. This paper considers the use of a simplified approach to system size estimation that utilises function point(More)
Two-dimensional polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis is a valuable tool for studying genetic variation in the human malaria parasite, Plasmodium falciparum. It involves examining the position of protein spots in gel produced from different isolates. Some spots have been seen to vary, while others have had a constant position in all isolates so far examined.(More)
