<i>Context:</i> Building defect prediction models for software projects is helpful for reducing the effort in locating defects. In this paper, we share our experiences in building a defect prediction model for a large industrial software project. We extract product and process metrics to build models and show that we can build an accurate defect prediction(More)
This study was conducted in September 2014 to determine the effects of metal accumulation on the Odanata larvae which is a freshwater macro-invertebrate. Polluted area in the lower part of the mine founded on Umurbey Stream (Çanakkale, Turkey) and unpolluted area in the upper part of it are defined as the sampling stations. In this study, GSH (Glutathione),(More)
The interest and demand to foreign language learning are increased tremendously along with the globalization and freedom of movement in the world. Today , the technological developments allow the creation of supportive materials for foreign language learners. However, the language acquisition between languages with high typological differences still poses(More)
In this study, the physiological effects that the increasing carbondioxide concentrations on rainbow trout, Oncorhynchus mykiss is evaluated by using serum biochemical variables and carbonic anhydrase activities. The fish were exposed for 14 days to 14 mg/L concentrations of CO 2. The serum GLU value showed a significant increase in the group exposed to CO(More)
In this study, alterations in glucose, blood enzymes (alkaline phosphatase (ALP), lactate dehydrogenase (LDH), alanine transaminase (ALT), aspartate aminotransferase (AST)) and serum ion (P +++ , Mg + , Cl-, Ca ++ , Fe ++) levels were investigated in Tilapia (Oreochromis mossambicus), which were semi-statically exposed to different lead concentrations in(More)
Although hypocholesterolemia is a reported finding in sickle cell disease (SCD), low-density lipoprotein (LDL)/high-density lipoprotein (HDL) subfractions and HDL-associated enzymes have not been determined in SCD patients. Blood was collected from 38 hemoglobin (Hb)A volunteers and 45 homozygous HbSS patients who had not received blood transfusions in the(More)
We evaluated the prevalence of hepatitis G virus (HGV) infection in patients who had received multiple blood components and in blood donors and the possible coinfection with hepatitis C virus (HCV). Eighty patients who had received multiple blood components and 70 eligible blood donors, as controls were included in this study. HGV RNA was determined by(More)
