We used simulated evolution to study the adaptability level of the canonical genetic code. An adapted genetic algorithm (GA) searches for optimal hypothetical codes. Adaptability is measured as the average variation of the hydrophobicity that the encoded amino acids undergo when errors or mutations are present in the codons of the hypothetical codes.(More)
Today, the challenge for global corporation is to innovate by learning from the world. Tomorrow’s winners will be companies that create value by searching out and mobilizing untapped pockets of technology and market intelligence that are scattered across the globe. This is the message from Yves Doz, Jose Santos and Peter Williamson, three eminent scholars(More)
The Interdisciplinary Telecommunications Program at the University of Colorado has developed an internet based remote laboratory environment for master’s level graduate students; our suite of telecommunications experiments substantially extends prior work focused on networking equipment, by (1) providing a systems focus, (2) enabling multiple reinforcing(More)
Radio Frequency (RF) communications suffer high attenuation underwater, limiting the range of standard IEEE 802.11 networks to a few centimeters underwater. The usage of custom RF solutions at lower frequencies to increase range entails high development costs, and proprietary hardware. This paper evaluates the performance of cost-effective, mass-market(More)
The ubiquity of diatom distribution, species richness, short generation time, and specific sensitivity to several environmental stressors such as metals, make diatoms particularly useful for scientific studies. Anthropogenic activities have increased the concentration of metals in air, soil and water. Due to their toxicity and persistent character, the(More)
Metals accumulated in marine sediments are often a threat to benthic communities. With the recognized importance and wide use of stress biochemical responses as indicators of metal contamination it becomes essential to compare these markers between different species and verify their ubiquity and accuracy. Using wild Diopatra neapolitana and Cerastoderma(More)
Human computer interaction techniques using hand poses are more natural to users than those that rely on devices. In this paper we describe and evaluate two techniques for hand pose recognition, based on a general library for gesture recognition, called CALI. This library was initially designed for calligraphic gesture recognition, however its usage shows(More)
