Cryptococcus neoformans is an important fungal pathogen of man. The incidence of cryptococcal disease has increased dramatically in patients immunocompromised because of HIV infection, organ transplantation, or treatment with cytotoxic chemotherapy or corticosteroids. This organism is an excellent model for molecular dissection of fungal pathogenesis and(More)
Specific protein interactions are responsible for most biological functions. Distinguishing Functionally Linked Interfaces of Proteins (FLIPs), from Functionally uncorrelated Contacts (FunCs), is therefore important to characterizing these interactions. To achieve this goal, we have created a database of protein structures called FLIPdb, containing proteins(More)
Researchers are attempting to architect and implement a continuously adaptive query engine suitable for global-area systems and sensor networks. As query engines are scaled and federated, they must cope with highly unpredictable and changeable environments. Numerous limitations such as poor cost models, data correlations, changing system resources, changing(More)
An appropriate cost metrics for estimating development effort of the database part of an application at conceptual design stage using ER model is an important consideration. We propose four cost metrics based on the level of complexity of an ER diagram. Our effort estimation technique is based on these metrics using an empirical mathematical expression(More)
Performance is an important non-functional attribute of the software system to be considered for producing quality software. Performance analysis by estimating development effort of the database application and workload estimation during preliminary design stages is an important consideration. In this paper It is propose a methodology for estimation of(More)
Zingiber officinale enriched jaggery of three sugarcane varieties (Co 86032, Co 419 and Co 62175) at 0.05, 0.1 and 0.2 % Z. officinale concentrations were evaluated for physico-chemical properties, 1,1-diphenyl-2-picrylhydrazyl (DPPH) radical scavenging and reducing power ability, in addition to sensory evaluation by quantitative descriptive analysis(More)
