The controlled use of fire was a breakthrough adaptation in human evolution. It first provided heat and light and later allowed the physical properties of materials to be manipulated for the production of ceramics and metals. The analysis of tools at multiple sites shows that the source stone materials were systematically manipulated with fire to improve(More)
Chikungunya virus (CHIKV) is a globally spreading alphavirus against which there is no commercially available vaccine or therapy. Here we use a genome-wide siRNA screen to identify 156 proviral and 41 antiviral host factors affecting CHIKV replication. We analyse the cellular pathways in which human proviral genes are involved and identify druggable(More)
—The advent of deep sub-micron and 3D integration technologies has exacerbated reliability issues in packet-switched on-chip interconnection networks. A lot of researches have been conducted in order to make these systems immune to any short-term malfunction or permanent physical damage while minimizing the performance degradation as much as possible. In(More)
The Network-on-Chip (NoC) paradigm has been proposed as a favorable solution to handle the strict communication requirements between the increasingly large number of cores on a single chip. However, NoC systems are exposed to the aggressive scaling down of transistors, low operating voltages, and high integration and power densities, making them vulnerable(More)
Photonic networks-on-chip (PNoCs) have emerged as a promising alternative to the conventional metal-based networks-on-chip due to their advantages in bandwidth density, power efficiency and propagation speed. Existing works on PNoCs concentrate on architectures of photonic networks with the assumption that the underlying photonic infrastructure operates(More)
As 3D-NoCs keep showing their ability to provide high bandwidth and low-power interconnect, their reliability is one of the main concerns that started significantly to arise during the past few years. This is due to their higher vulnerability to failures that may cause unacceptable performance degradation or even entire system failure. As a consequence, a(More)
