Energy consumption plays a crucial role in wireless sensor networks as these networks are designed to be placed in hostile and non-accessible areas. While battery-driven sensors will run out of battery sooner or later, the use of renewable energy sources such as solar power extends the lifetime of a sensor network. We propose a solar-aware, scheduled(More)
The elasticity of substitution between labor and capital (σ) is a crucial parameter in growth theory. A host of important issues, including the possibility of perpetual growth or decline, depend on the precise positive value of σ. This paper examines the role of σ in the neoclassical growth model and estimates σ by combining a low-pass filter with standard(More)
Hexaploid wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) is derived from a complex hybridization procedure involving three diploid species carrying the A, B and D genomes. The proteome patterns of diploid, tetraploid and hexaploid wheat were analyzed to explore the genome interaction in protein expression. At least two species from each of the diploid and tetraploid were(More)
Since the completion of genome sequences of several organisms, attention has been focused to determine the function and functional network of proteins by proteome analysis. This analysis is achieved by separation and identification of proteins, determination of their function and functional network, and construction of an appropriate database. Many(More)
The biofilm forming bacterium Staphylococcus aureus is responsible for maladies ranging from severe skin infection to major diseases such as bacteremia, endocarditis and osteomyelitis. A flow displacement system was used to grow S. aureus biofilms in four physiologically relevant fluid shear rates (50, 100, 500 and 1000 s-1) to identify proteins that are(More)
Cotton is under the constant threat of leaf curl virus, which is a major constraint for successful production of cotton in the Pakistan. A total of 3338 cotton genotypes belonging to different research stations were screened, but none were found to be resistant against the Burewala strain of cotton leaf curl virus (CLCuV). We explored the possibility(More)
I. INTRODUCTION The rainy season in and around Bangladesh is divided into three [1]: (i) pre-monsoon (March-May), (ii) monsoon (June-September) and (iii) post-monsoon (October-November). The Bangladesh is a flat-land called land of rivers and very favorable for the development of convection. Pre-monsoon convections are characterized by short lifetime and(More)
