An allele of intersex (ix5) of Drosophila melanogaster has been characterized. The genetic analysis of the allele demonstrated that like other point mutations of ix, the ix5 allele also transformed diplo-X individuals into intersexes. The ix5 mutation also affects the arrangement of sex comb bristles on the forelegs of males, although they had(More)
In this work, we present a novel region-based active contour technique to extract the breast boundary in mammograms. Skin-line extraction in mammograms is non-trivial due to the presence of noise and scanning artifacts. Also, weak contrast near the skin-line boundary, especially in the case of low-density breasts, poses a lot of difficulty in its(More)
This paper addresses two critical questions on the performance of Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) i.e., whether its implementation adds value to the firm and whether it takes stages to mature. It confirms both arguments that ERM creates value when the infrastructure is fully embedded into a company's operations and matured. The traditional methods of(More)

Mind reading or thought prediction is a promising application of functional neuroimaging studies. The emergence of functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) has, in the last two decades given a boost to these studies. In order to improve the accuracy, predictability and repeatability of thought prediction, it is important to have a representation that(More)
