The use of chemical ligation within the realm of peptide chemistry has opened various opportunities to expand the applications of peptides/proteins in biological sciences. Expansion and refinement of ligation chemistry has made it possible for the entry of peptides into the world of viable oral therapeutic drugs through peptide backbone cyclization. This(More)
Traditionally, Tinospora cordifolia (Willd.) Hook. F. & Thomson (Menispermaceae), Ocimum sanctum L. (Lamiaceae), Moringa oleifera Lam. (Moringaceae), and Phyllanthus niruri L. (Euphorbiaceae) are some of the commonly used medicinal plants in India for curing ailments ranging from common cold, skin diseases, and dental infections to major disorders like(More)
This paper presents an algorithm to automatically determine the number of clusters in a given input data set, under a mixture of Gaussians assumption. Our algorithm extends the Expectation- Maximization clustering approach by starting with a single cluster assumption for the data, and recursively splitting one of the clusters in order to find a tighter fit.(More)
This article describes a mathematically based human circulatory model. The model consists of lumped elements made of venous, arterial, peripheral, pulmonary vein and artery segments. A heart model is simulated using 4 chambers (left and right atriums and ventricles). The heart pump mechanism is operated by a simple piston based models for each of the(More)
The purpose of this study is to develop and evaluate a pediatric patient-specific surgical simulator for the planning, practice, and validation of laparoscopic surgical procedures prior to intervention, initially focusing on the choledochal cyst resection and reconstruction scenario. The simulator is comprised of software elements including a deformable(More)
