Certain applications have recently appeared in industry where a traditional bar code printed on a label will not survive because the item to be tracked has to be exposed to harsh environments. Laser direct-part marking is a manufacturing process used to create permanent marks on a substrate that could help...
To reduce the environmental impacts caused by gene flow from transgenic trees, reproductive sterility genes have been developed that use a floral regulatory element linked to a cell toxin. This results in dysfunction or ablation of floral tissues, causing sterility. However, floral promoters often permit low levels of expression in...
This paper discusses two main trends in the development of virtual
machine systems: full system virtualization, where an entire hardware
architecture is replicated virtually, and paravirtualization, where an
operating system is modiﬁed so that it can be run concurrently with
other operating systems that have also been designed for paravirtualization.
