MOTIVATION Subcellular localization of proteins is one of the most significant characteristics of living cells. Prediction of protein subcellular locations is crucial to the understanding of various protein functions. Therefore, an accurate, computationally efficient and reliable prediction system is required. RESULTS In this article, the predictions of(More)
—Using analog wireless communication, we demonstrate a master–slave load-sharing control of a parallel dc–dc buck converter system, thereby eliminating the need for physical connection to distribute the control signal among the converter modules. The current reference for the slave modules is provided by the master module using radio-frequency (RF)(More)
Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to assess the use of electronic information resources and facilities by humanities scholars at the University of the Punjab, Lahore, Pakistan. Design/methodology/approach – A questionnaire survey of faculty from arts and humanities departments at the University of the Punjab was conducted. In total, 62 faculty and(More)
—We address the issue of network lifetime maximiza-tion for a special class of wireless sensor networks namely, wireless multi-media sensor networks. High data rates, in these networks at the sensor nodes, compared to the conventional sensor networks and the presence of high temporal correlation in the sampled data make them a suitable candidate for the(More)
—This paper describes a universal fuel-cell-based grid-connected inverter design with digital-signal-processor-based digital control. The inverter has a direct power conversion mechanism with a high-frequency zero-voltage-switched dc/ac primary-side converter followed by a pair of ac/ac cycloconverters that operates either in parallel or in series to(More)
We have developed a three-state discrete-time Markov-chain model for the performance evaluation of contention-based medium access control (MAC) protocol. The proposed Markov-chain model is then used to analyze the carrier sense multiple access (CSMA) type MAC protocol for its delay and throughput characteristics with and without transmitter power control.(More)
This paper presents TactiMote, a remote control with tactile feedback designed for navigating in long lists and catalogues. TactiMote integrates a joystick that allows 2D interaction with the thumb and a Braille cell that provides tactile feedback. This feedback is intended to help the selection task in novice mode and to allow for fast eyes-free navigation(More)
