Open Journal of Genetics (OJGen) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/ojgen.2015.54010
Abstract: The bovine fatty acid desaturase (FADS) gene cluster consists of FADS1, FADS2, FADS3, and FADS6, which acts as key enzymes in fatty acid metabolism. Of these, the genetics effects of variants in FADS1, FADS2 and FADS3 have been previously studied. However, the genetic effects of variants of FADS6 gene have not been studied. The aim of this study was to identify genetic variants in the bovine fatty acid desaturase 6 (FADS6) gene and study their association with fatty acid composition in Hanwoo cattle. Six genetic variants were observed, three each in intron 2 and exon 6 by DNA sequencing analyses. The association of genetic variants with fatty acid composition was evaluated in 90 Hanwoo steers. The variants were confirmed and the animals were genotyped by RFLP (Restriction Fragment Length Polymorphism) and AS-PCR (Allele Specific PCR) analyses. The analysis revealed that palmitoleic acid (C16:1n7) was associated with g.3391G > A, g.3660A > C and g.15657C > T, and stearic acid (C18:0) showed highly significant association with g.3660A > C segments. Both g.3391G > A, g.3660A > C also had strong additive and dominance effect for Palmitoleic acid, while g.3660A > C also had a strong dominance effect for stearic acid. These results could be useful for modulating fatty acid composition in beef and produce meat with higher monounsaturated fatty acid to saturated fatty acid ratio (MUFA/SFA), which had been shown to have positive health effect in humans.

Agricultural Sciences (AS) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/as.2012.33045
Abstract: Bangladesh is a subtropical monsoon climate characterized by wide seasonal variations in rainfall, moderately warm temperatures, and high humidity. Rainfall is the main source of irrigation water everywhere in the Bangladesh where the inhabitants derive their income primarily from farming. Stochastic rainfall models were concerned with the occurrence of wet day and depth of rainfall for different regions to model the daily occurrence of rainfall and achieved satisfactory results around the world. In connection to the Markov chain of different order, logistic regression is conducted to visualize the dependence of current rainfall upon the rainfall of previous two-time period. It had been shown that wet day of the previous two time period compared to the dry day of previous two time period influences positively the wet day of current time period, that is the dependency of dry-wet spell for the occurrence of rain in the rainy season from April to September in the study area. Daily data are collected from meteorological department of about 26 years on rainfall of Dhaka station during the period January 1985-August 2011 to conduct the study. The test result shows that the occurrence of rainfall follows a second order Markov chain and logistic regression also tells that dry followed by dry and wet followed by wet is more likely for the rainfall of Dhaka station and also the model could perform adequately for many applications of rainfall data satisfactorily.

Abstract: Abstrak Anjuran lewat nasehat, dakwah, khotbah atau yang lain, sering diabaikan. Ini bukan semata karena anjurannya yang tidak benar, juga dapat merupakan pertanda adanya krisis kepercayaan orang terhadap komunikator. Persoalannya terletak pada hubungan antara komunikator dan target, orang yang menerima anjuran tersebut. Kepercayaan terhadap suatu informasi merupakan pangkal dari perubahan sikap. Oleh karena itu kepercayaan atas suatu informasi menandakan kualitas suatu persuasi. Komunikator tidak hanya dipandang oleh target sebagai individu terlepas dari diri target, tetapi juga seseorang yang memiliki kaitan dengan target. Pendekatan kognitif memberi penjelasan mengenai pemikiran target terhadap siapa dirinya dan siapa komunikator. Tujuan dari penelitian ini adalah apakah ada pengaru unsur kesamaan komunikator dan target terhadap kualitas persuasi. Kesamaan itu meliputi jenis kelamin, suku, dan agama. Kesamaan tersebut merupakan identitas diri yang umum, biasanya tergambar oleh nama komunikator. Secara praktis metodologis, apakah informasi yang disampaikan oleh komunikator yang memiliki unsur kesamaan dengan dirinya lebih dipercayai dari pada komunikator yang tidak memilki unsur kesamaan dengan target.

A note on perinormal domains
Tiberiu Dumitrescu,Anam Rani
Mathematics , 2015,
Abstract: Recently, N. Epstein and J. Shapiro introduced and studied the perinormal domains: those domains A whose going down overrings are flat A-modules. We show that every Pr\"ufer v-multiplication domain is perinormal and has no proper lying over overrings. We also show that a treed perinormal domain is a Pr\"ufer domain. We give two pull-back constructions that produce perinormal/non-perinormal domains.

Abstract: With the advancement in the technologies around the world over the past few years, the microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) have gained much attention in harvesting the energy for wireless, self-powered and MEMS devices. In the present era, many devices are available for energy harnessing such as electromagnetic, electrostatic and piezoelectric generator and these devices are designed based on its ability to capture the different form of environment energy such as solar energy, wind energy, thermal energy and convert it into the useful energy form. Out of these devices, the use of a piezoelectric generator for energy harvesting is very attractive for MEMS applications. There are various sources of harvestable energy including waste heat, solar energy, wind energy, energy in floating water and mechanical vibrations which are used by the researchers for energy harvesting purposes. This paper reviews the state-of-the-art in harvesting mechanical vibrations as an energy source by various generators (such as electromagnetic, electrostatic and piezoelectric generators). Also, the design and characteristics of piezoelectric generators, using vibrations of cantilevered bimorphs, for MEMS have also been reviewed here. Electromagnetic, electrostatic and piezoelectric generators presented in the literature are reviewed by taking into an account the power output, frequency, acceleration, dimension and application of each generator and the coupling factor of each transduction mechanism has also been discussed for all the devices.
Personal Identification using Ear Recognition
Anam Tariq,M. Usman Akram
TELKOMNIKA : Indonesian Journal of Electrical Engineering , 2012, DOI: 10.11591/telkomnika.v10i2.685
Abstract: The use of biometrics for personal identification or authentication is very common now days. The technology of human ear recognition system is a latest technology in this field. In case of ear biometrics, the shape and appearance remains same throughout the life time of an individual contrary to facial recognition in which change of appearance with expression and age is a major problem. That is why it is advantageous to use it for personal identification. In this paper, we have proposed a new approach for an automated system for human ear identification. Our proposed method consists of three stages. In the first stage, preprocessing of ear image is done for its contrast enhancement and size normalization. In the second stage, features are extracted through Haar wavelets followed by ear identification using fast normalized cross correlation in the third stage. The proposed method is applied on USTB ear image database and IIT Delhi ear image database. Experimental results show that our proposed system achieves an average accuracy of 97.2% and 95.2% on these databases respectively.
