Malaria is a devastating infection caused by protozoa of the genus Plasmodium. Drug resistance is widespread, no new chemical class of antimalarials has been introduced into clinical practice since 1996 and there is a recent rise of parasite strains with reduced sensitivity to the newest drugs. We screened nearly 2 million compounds in GlaxoSmithKline's(More)
Canada has been the world’s leader in e-Government maturity for the last five years. The global average for government website usage by citizens is about 30%. In Canada, this statistic is over 51%. The vast majority of Canadians visit government websites to obtain information, rather than interacting or transacting with the government. It seems that the(More)
Osmotin or osmotin-like proteins have been shown to be induced in several plant species in response to various types of biotic and abiotic challenges. The protein is generally believed to be involved in protecting the plant against these stresses. Although some understanding of the possible mechanism underlying the defense function of osmotin against biotic(More)
Independent component analysis (ICA) is a novel technique capable of separating independent components from electrocardiogram (ECG) complex signals. The purpose of this analysis is to evaluate the effectiveness of ICA in removing artifacts and noise from ECG recordings. ICA is applied to remove artifacts and noise in ECG segments of either an individual ECG(More)
Qualitative and quantitative estimation of phenolic compounds was done through reverse phase–high performance liquid chromatography (RP-HPLC) from different parts (leaf, stem, and root) of rice plants after inoculation with two rhizobial strains, RRE6 (Rhizobium leguminosarum bv. phaseoli) and ANU 843 (R. leguminosarum bv. trifolii) and infection by(More)
Although Agrobacterium-mediated transformation of sorghum has been reported, the process is rather lengthy and remains difficult, requiring some very stringent conditions to obtain transformants. We have investigated and describe the parameters related to cocultivation, culture, and regeneration that have allowed us to obtain transgenic sorghum plants in as(More)
