Revisiting Web Server Workload Invariants in the Context of Scientific Web Sites

Anne Faber, Minaxi Gupta, Camilo Viecco
2006 ACM/IEEE SC 2006 Conference (SC'06)  
The Web has evolved much from when Arlitt and Williamson proposed the ten Web workload invariants more than a decade ago. Many diverse communities now depend on the Web in their day-to-day lives.  ...  We investigate appropriate revisions to the invariants that do not hold and also propose three new invariants for scientific Web servers.  ...  Acknowledgments We would like to acknowledge the help of the following colleagues in acquiring various data sets: Don Gilbert for Flybase logs, John Bollinger and Randy Bramley for ReciprocalNet logs,  ...

A UDP-GalNAc:PolypeptideN-Acetylgalactosaminyltransferase Is Essential for Viability inDrosophila melanogaster

Kelly G. Ten Hagen, Duy T. Tran
2002 Journal of Biological Chemistry  
The third mutant contains an arginine to tryptophan amino acid change, which, when expressed in COS7 cells, resulted in a dramatic reduction of transferase activity in vitro.  ...  Here, we have determined the molecular nature of the mutations in three independent mutant alleles. Two of the mutant alleles contain premature stop codons within the coding region of pgant35A.  ...  The GFP bal-ancer chromosomes allow one to then visualize the chromosomal composition of D. melanogaster embryos and larvae by looking for GFP fluorescence; only embryos or larvae having at least one copy  ...
