We characterized Uroporphyrinogen decarboxylase (UroD) (E.C. 4.1.1.37) in hepatopancreas of the crab Chasmagnathus granulatus as a first step to establish this enzyme as a possible biomarker for environmental contamination. We performed a comparative study of crab UroD with the enzyme UroD present in Wistar rat liver, which is known as a useful indicator of(More)
We present the results of a project aimed to evaluate 2D and 3D face recognition algorithms. In particular, we focused on the potentialities of 3D-based techniques to overcome typical limitations of 2D methods in non-controlled situations. According to the reference scenario of people identification at airport check points, we built a representative(More)
An efficient method for cross-correlating images, in querying operations over an image database is presented. The method relies on a multiresolution compression method, based on a variant of the wavelet packets best-basis algorithm of Coifman and Wickerhauser. It is shown that a searched image can be correlated with the compressed images of the database in(More)
Abstract The paper presents the experience of porting the PVM message-passing environment to EMMA2E, an industrial, shared-memory multiprocessor architecture. The work is still ongoing in the framework of the ESPRIT "EUROPORT2" project, aiming to demonstrate practical availability of portable parallel applications with related industrial and commercial(More)
