Ubiquitous availability of cellular network and cheap mobile phones have made them promising sensing platforms for various application domains including healthcare, environment, and astronomy among others. However, existing mobile phone platforms, including even smartphones, provide limited in-built sensing capabilities and lack standard interfaces to(More)
The role played by overexpression of tyrosine kinase epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR), the transmembrane receptor central to numerous cellular processes comprising cell migration, adhesion, apoptosis, and cell proliferation, has been highlighted in various cancers such as prostate, breast, lung, and ovarian cancers as well as in mutations in the EGFR(More)
The archaic centralized software systems, currently used to manage buildings, make it hard to incorporate advances in sensing technology and user-level applications, and present hurdles for experimental validation of open research in building information technology. Motivated by this, we --- a transnational collaboration of researchers engaged in(More)
The cell cycle is a ubiquitous, multi-step process that is essential for growth and proliferation of cells. The role of membrane lipids in cell cycle regulation is not explored well, although a large number of cytoplasmic and nuclear regulators have been identified. We focus in this work on the role of membrane cholesterol in cell cycle regulation. In(More)
Suppression of T cell response is thought to be involved in the pathogenesis of visceral leishmaniasis (VL). Regulatory T cell (Treg) mediated immune-suppression is reported in animal models of Leishmania infection. However, their precise role among human patients still requires pathologic validation. The present study is aimed at understanding the(More)
A major problem in developing ubiquitous computing applications is the simulation of the required infrastructure and the environment in which they are to be deployed. Developers have to rely on either low-fidelity techniques (such as paper prototypes and mental walk-throughs) or simply wait for a full scale deployment. Similarly, even where an existing(More)
A key issue in mobile and ambient computing is the effort required to rapidly prototype and evaluate user interfaces and applications. Existing technologies for these tasks suffer either from low fidelity (e.g. paper prototypes, mental walkthroughs) or effectively require a near full-scale deployment. We propose an approach using immersive video with(More)
Content sharing and social networking are two activities that users now routinely engage in on a range of connected devices. However users have to face arcane configuration panels for setting up connectivity, heterogeneity in the human-machine interaction models, differences in devices' capabilities and a profusion of tools/services/applications to perform(More)
