Many studies on the role of merozoite surface protein 3 (MSP3) in immunity against malaria have focused on a conserved section of MSP3. New evidence suggests that polymorphic sequences within MSP3 are under immune selection. We report a detailed analysis of naturally-acquired antibodies to allele-specific and conserved parts of MSP3 in a Kenyan cohort.(More)
The importance of dendritic cells (DCs) for the initiation and regulation of immune responses not only to foreign organisms but also to the self has raised considerable interest in the qualitative and quantitative analysis of these cells in various human diseases. Plasmodium falciparum malaria is characterized by the poor induction of long-lasting(More)
Following infection with Plasmodium falciparum malaria, children in endemic areas develop antibodies specific to antigens on the parasite-infected red cell surface of the infecting isolate, antibodies associated with protection against subsequent infection with that isolate. In some circumstances induction of antibodies to heterologous parasite isolates(More)
The aim of this project is to learn how to make predictions on what genre of movie a user is likely to be interested in based on their raw Facebook data. We collaborated with other groups to collect a dataset of 10k unique users which was then parsed, stemmed and tokenized. We trained two predictors each using a dierent model, SVM and Naive Bayes. In order(More)
Motivation American Football is highly competitive and well financed sport in which the slightest advantage can be exploited for large gains. In high school, college, and professional levels of play, a substantial amount of time is dedicated to film study and analysis. Both players and coaches spend hours analyzing film in order to detect tendencies,(More)
