The ancestors to the Australian marsupials entered Australia around 60 (54-72) Ma from Antarctica, and radiated into the four living orders Peramelemorphia, Dasyuromorphia, Diprotodontia, and Notoryctemorphia. The relationship between the four Australian marsupial orders has been a long-standing question, because different phylogenetic studies have not been(More)

Despite numerous large-scale phylogenomic studies, certain parts of the mammalian tree are extraordinarily difficult to resolve. We used the coding regions from 19 completely sequenced genomes to study the relationships within the super-clade Euarchontoglires (Primates, Rodentia, Lagomorpha, Dermoptera and Scandentia) because the placement of Scandentia(More)
The largest living carnivorous marsupial, the Tasmanian devil (Sarcophilus harrisii), is the sole survivor of a lineage originating about 12 Ma. We set out to investigate the spectrum of transposable elements found in the Tasmanian devil genome, the first high-coverage genome of an Australian marsupial. Marsupial genomes have been shown to have the highest(More)
Cloud computing is coming-up as a new generation business paradigm with significant potential to increase the agility and lower the costs. Business people are looking for better ways to migrate their existing applications to a cloud-based infrastructure to enjoy the immense cloud potential. However, the security risks, lack of mature technology and(More)
The genus Vulpes (true foxes) comprises numerous species that inhabit a wide range of habitats and climatic conditions, including one species, the Arctic fox (Vulpes lagopus) which is adapted to the arctic region. A close relative to the Arctic fox, the red fox (Vulpes vulpes), occurs in subarctic to subtropical habitats. To study the genetic basis of their(More)
With the evolution of Web 2.0, ICT has become the primary need of human beings. There is a gap between the farmers and the knowledge of agricultural experts. ICT can fill the gap between farmers and the experts. In this paper, we have proposed a semantic web based architecture to generate agricultural recommendations, using spatial data and agricultural(More)
The popularity of cloud computing has increased by tremendous amounts within last few years. By replacing huge amount of traditional IT infrastructure in very short time, cloud computing has brought itself to a supreme position in IT industry. Various factors such as easy availability, pay as you use model and cost effective nature of cloud computing have(More)
