The Eclipse platform presents an opportunity to openly collaborate and share visualization tools amongst the research community and with developers. In this paper, we present our own experiences of "plugging-in" our visualization tool, SHriMP Views, into this environment. The Eclipse platform's Java Development Tools (JDT) and CVS plug-ins provide us with(More)
Clouds have evolved as the next generation platform that facilitates creation of widearea on-demand renting of computing or storage services for hosting application services that experience highly variable workloads and requires high availability and performance. Inter-connecting Cloud computing system components (servers, VMs, application services) through(More)
More and more real-time applications need to handle dynamic continuous queries over streaming data of high density. Conventional data and query indexing approaches generally do not apply for excessive costs in either maintenance or space. Aiming at these problems, this study first proposes a new indexing structure by fusing an adaptive cell and KDB-tree,(More)
To understand well the morphology and reproductive mode of Blastocystis hominis, with the help of transmission electron microscopy and scanning electron microscopy the ultrastructural details of B. hominis from fresh diarrheal specimens and cultured strains were observed. In both fecal samples and culture conditions, there were vacuolar and granular forms.(More)
BACKGROUND Studies have revealed that visiting poultry markets and direct contact with sick or dead poultry are significant risk factors for H5N1 infection, the practices of which could possibly be influenced by people's knowledge, attitudes and practices (KAPs) associated with avian influenza (AI). To determine the KAPs associated with AI among the Chinese(More)
Most traditional reverse engineering tools focus on abstraction and analysis of source code, presenting aion and analysis of source code, presenting a visual representation of the software architecture. This approach can be both helpful and cost effective in software maintenance tasks. However, where large software teams are concerned, with moderate levels(More)
Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) has become a new worldwide epidemic whose origin was until recently unknown. It is the unpredictable nature of this epidemic that makes people want answers to some important questions about what they can do to protect themselves. This study presents an inquiry into people's knowledge and self-reported changes in(More)
Cytochrome c maturation (Ccm) is a sophisticated post-translational process. It occurs after translocation of apocytochromes c to the p side of energy transducing membranes and forms stereo-specific thioether bonds between the vinyl groups of heme b (protoporphyrin IX-Fe) and the thiol groups of cysteines at their conserved heme binding sites. In many(More)
A water-soluble polysaccharide (STPC2) was isolated from the boiling-water extract of Sargassum thunbergii, purified by CaCl2 precipitation and chromatography on DEAE-cellulose and Sephacryl S-300 column. It was found that STPC2, with a molecular weight of 57kD, was composed of fucose, xylose, galactose and glucuronic acid, in a ratio of 8.1: 3.8: 2.1: 1.0.(More)
