There are constraints on a protein sequence/structure for it to adopt a particular fold. These constraints could be either a local signature involving particular sequences or arrangements of secondary structure or a global signature involving features along the entire chain. To search systematically for protein fold signatures, we have explored the use of(More)
This paper illustrates the use of simulation for evaluating and analyzing air cargo operations at one of the new state-of-the art cargo facilities at Toronto Pearson Airport. The establishment of a facility equipped with some of the latest in modern material handling systems available today and a computerized-based inventory control system that interfaces(More)
The SLD detector consists of five major subsystems, each with associated front-end electronics and an integrated FASTBUS control and data acquisition system. This paper highlights the choices among electronic technologies that have been developed for the SLD detector electronics. The common control, calibration, and data acquisition architectures are(More)
Along with marketing and maintenance implications, hub optimization is an important part of the flight schedule development process. The Air Canada flight schedule at its Toronto hub is based on two-hour non-directional connection banks. The purpose of this research is to analyze an alternative to this rule consisting of directional connection banks and,(More)
