A number of hypotheses have been proposed about the association between developmental stability phenotypic variability, heritability, and environmental stress. Stress is often considered to increase both the asymmetry and phenotypic variability of bilateral traits, although this may depend on trait heritability. Empirical studies of such associations often(More)
Research in image processing has gained lots of momentum during past two decades. Now-a-days image processing techniques have found their way into computer vision, image compression, image security, medical imaging and more. This paper presents a research on mammography images using wavelet transformation and K – means clustering for cancer tumor mass(More)
Image Preprocessing is an important step in the area of image processing and pattern recognition. This paper aims to present a review of recent as well as classic fingerprint image enhancement techniques. The umbrella of techniques used for evaluation varies from histogram based enhancement, frequency transformation based, Gabor filter based enhancement and(More)
Some studies have found intermediate heritabilities for fluctuating asymmetry (FA) in traits, but almost all of these are flawed and/or based on laboratory experiments. We therefore tested if there was heritable variation for FA in bristle and wing traits in three field collections of Drosophila melanogaster by rearing F1 s from field flies under laboratory(More)
Australian terrestrial elapid snakes contain amongst the most potently toxic venoms known. However, despite the well-documented clinical effects of snake bite, little research has focussed on individual venom components at the molecular level. To further characterise the components of Australian elapid venoms, a complementary (cDNA) microarray was produced(More)
Biologic treatment options such as tumor necrosis factor (TNF) inhibitors have revolutionized the treatment of inflammatory diseases, including rheumatoid arthritis. Recent data suggest, however, that full and long-lasting responses to TNF inhibitors are limited because of the activation of the pro-inflammatory TH17/interleukin (IL)-17 pathway in patients.(More)
