Phylogenic analysis based on partial sequences of NS4 and E1 genes showed that all earlier isolates (1963-1973) were Asian genotype, whereas the current and Yawat (2000) isolates were African genotype.
In this paper a Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO) based technique for generating a heterogeneous network configuration comprising assignment of shouters and whisperers to available node positions is proposed. The generated network configuration is optimized to obtain desired network characteristics. The proposed technique is compared with contemporary… (More)
