Obtaining high flexibility to performance-loss ratio is a key challenge of today's HPC virtual environment landscape. And while extensive research has been targeted at extracting more performance from virtual machines, the idea that whether novel virtual machine usage scenarios could lead to high flexibility Vs performance trade-off has received less(More)
Introduction The study of Quantum Chromodynamics (QCD), a branch of Particle Physics, is considered a Grand Challenge application [2]; a Grand Challenge is a fundamental problem in science and engineering, with broad applications, whose solution would be enabled by the application of high performance computing resources [1]. Commercial and custom-built(More)
OBJECTIVES To assess the association of adenomyotic foci with co-existing benign ovarian cysts.  METHODS This prospective cross-sectional study consisted of 100 consecutive hysterectomy specimens referred to Histopathology Section of Pathology Department, Peshawar Medical College, Peshawar, Pakistan by its attached teaching hospitals from January 2011 to(More)
portable and flexible manner. Specifically we investigate how to overcome some of the limitations currently imposed by the standard tools such as the complete lack of C++11 support in CUDA C and outdated 32 bit versions of OpenCL. We also demonstrate how Clang-LLVM tools, for example, the static analyzer can bring additional capabilities to the Cray(More)
Hydrogen peroxide (H 2 O 2), a reactive oxygen specie (ROS), is most commonly associated with oxidative stress causing cytotoxic effects on living cells. Oxidative stress has been implicated in various conditions including neurodegenerative diseases, autoimmune diseases and cancer. In addition H 2 O 2 is produced as a defense mechanism against pathogens, as(More)
Interdisciplinary Computer Scientists represent a bridge between computer systems and their potential users. They are professionals with the ability to not only develop new applications, but who also have the knowledge to transfer this technology to various fields. Their domain expertise enables them to appreciate the needs of their users, while their(More)
