This paper gives an overview of the BlueGene/L Supercomputer. This is a jointly funded research partnership between IBM and the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory as part of the United States Department of Energy ASCI Advanced Architecture Research Program. Application performance and scaling studies have recently been initiated with partners at a(More)
A method was developed for plant regeneration from alginate-encapsulated shoot tips of Phyllanthus amarus. Shoot tips excised from in vitro proliferated shoots were encapsulated in calcium alginate beads. The best gel complexation was achieved using 3% sodium alginate and 75 mM CaCl2·2H2O. Maximum percentage response for conversion of encapsulated shoot(More)
Therapeutic efficacy of an "Indigenous vaccine" has been evaluated with respect to a commercial vaccine (Gudair, Spain), for the control of clinical Johne's disease (JD) in naturally infected goatherds. Seventy-one goats (JD positive) were randomly divided into 3 groups ("Bison", "Gudair" and "Sham-immunized"). After vaccination, goats were monitored for(More)
Fusarium wilt (FW), caused by Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. ciceris and Ascochyta blight (AB), caused by Ascochyta rabiei are two major constraints to chickpea production. Therefore, two parallel marker-assisted backcrossing (MABC) programmes by targeting foc 1 locus and two QTL regions, ABQTL-I and ABQTL-II were undertaken to introgress resistance to FW and(More)
A cooperative algorithm based on interference temperature model is proposed for computation of available channels by mesh nodes in a cognitive mesh network. Interference temperature model is used to model occupancy and availability of a channel. Link and end-to-end routing metrics are proposed to select appropriate channels from the computed set of(More)
This paper proposes an improved steganography approach for hiding text messages in lossless RGB images. The objective of this work is to increase the security level and to improve the storage capacity with compression techniques. The security level is increased by randomly distributing the text message over the entire image instead of clustering within(More)
Tea microshoots excised from well-established multiple shoot cultures grown in vitro and 8-week-old, three- to five-leaved seedlings from a local chinery stock (Banuri-96) and UPASI-9 (from southern India) were selected as scions and root stocks, respectively, for grafting. In addition, 4-month- and 12-month-old seedlings of Banuri-96 were also used as root(More)
This paper describes a neural network based direct adaptive control approach to the problem of reconfigurable flight control. A Tailless fighter aircraft configuration with multiple and redundant control actuation devices is used to illustrate the level to which handling qualities can be maintained in the presence of large scale failures in the actuation(More)
Cognitive radio based dynamic spectrum access network is emerging as a technology to address spectrum scarcity. In this study, we assume that the channel is licensed to some primary (licensed) operator. We consider a sensor network with cognitive radio capability that acts as a secondary (unlicensed) network and uses the channel in underlay mode. The(More)
We describe interconnect features for Intel's 22nm high-performance logic technology, with metal-insulator-metal capacitors and nine layers of interconnects. Metal-1 through Metal-6 feature a new ultra-low-k carbon doped oxide (CDO) and a low-k etch stop. Metal-7 and Metal-8 use a low-k CDO. New materials and process optimization provide 13-18% capacitance(More)
