Soil-borne fungal diseases are among the most important factors, limiting the yield of grain legumes in many countries worldwide. Root rot, caused by Aphanomyces euteiches, Rhizoctonia solani, Fusarium solani and wilt, caused by several formae speciales of Fusarium oxysporum are the most destructive soil-borne diseases of pea, chickpea, lentil, fababean and(More)
A number of parasitic plants have become weeds, posing severe constraints to major crops including grain legumes. Breeding for resistance is acknowledged as the major component of an integrated control strategy. However, resistance against most parasitic weeds is difficult to access, scarce, of complex nature and of low heritability, making breeding for(More)
The parasitic weed Orobanche foetida (Poiret) is an emergent agronomical problem on faba bean in Tunisia. The Tunisian breeding programs for faba bean resistance to O. foetida have produced several tolerant lines including the line XBJ90.03-16-1-1-1, which limits both parasite attachments to the host roots and growth of the attached parasites. The present(More)
Genetics of resistance to Ascochyta fabae Speg. in Vicia faba L. was studied with a final objective to develop resistant faba bean varieties to Ascochyta blight. The study was conducted separately on 3 single spore isolates (AF10-2 and AF13-2 from Tunisia and AF4-3 from France) and belonging to different groups of virulence (GV1 and GV2). Important general(More)
It is difficult for a person who cannot swim to call for help while he face a drowning incident. This make from drowning incidents very dangerous as it can occur silently. In this research we consider the use of wearable sensors to identify victims at early drowning stage. For this we attached a pressure sensor logging unit at the head level of a(More)

An experimental apparatus has been developed to study the mechanical response of Total Knee Replacement (TKR) prosthesis under compression loading test (Tibial HDPE component and femoral Vitallium component). Analysis of experimental results indicates that the load-displacement curve depends on the initial contact location. The position of this curve varies(More)
This research aims to measure the radial artery pulse rate using Piezo film sensor. Being thin and lightweight, Piezo film can be particularly useful for wearable applications. However, it suffers from different kinds of noises. We use EEMD analyzing method to estimate the radial pulse from the noisy data. Although EEMD is considered to be an adaptive(More)
We propose here a novel approach for extracting hidden semantic from semi-structured data resources and transformed to RDF triples, to be queried through semantic query languages. Unlike existing approaches that only explore the structure or use ontologies, we present a system that allows us to utilize all available information. Our approach constructs a(More)
