A Tour of the Computer Worm Detection Space

Nelson Ochieng, Waweru Mwangi, Ismael Ateya
2014 International Journal of Computer Applications  
This is partly because of the difficulty of accurately modeling either the normal behavior of computer networks or the malicious actions of computer worms.  ...  The paper broadly categorizes the worm detection approaches into content signature based detection, polymorphic worm detection, anomaly based detection, and behavioral signature based detection.  ...  Worms are different from Viruses in that Viruses piggy-back on files and therefore require user action to enable their propagation. Because of this, viruses propagate at a slower rate than worms.  ...

The unity of the whole and freedom of parts: Facultativeness principle in the hereditary system

M. D. Golubovsky
2011 Russian Journal of Genetics Applied Research  
Facultativeness in the genome structure and function reflects the general principle of life organization and evolution: the unity of the whole and the freedom of parts.  ...  The genome, or cell hereditary system code, maintains and transfers hereditary information both structurally and dynamically.  ...  Based on the comparative molecular anatomy of various MEs, Khesin (1984) postulated the general principles of their organization: terminal repeats, genetic punctuation marks (promoters and terminators  ...

The evolution of Ebola virus: Insights from the 2013–2016 epidemic

Edward C. Holmes, Gytis Dudas, Andrew Rambaut, Kristian G. Andersen
2016 Nature  
Preface The 2013-2016 epidemic of Ebola virus disease in West Africa was of unprecedented magnitude and changed our perspective on this lethal but sporadically emerging virus.  ...  This outbreak also marked the beginning of large-scale real-time molecular epidemiology.  ...  Acknowledgments We honor and thank all the African doctors, nurses, scientists, and outbreak responders who worked to control the 2013-2016 EVD epidemic, many of whom tragically died in the process.  ...

Strategies for cancer prevention: the role of diet

J. A. Milner
2002 British Journal of Nutrition  
The complexity of defining the role of diet is underscored by the numerous and diverse essential and non-essential components that may alter one or more phases of the cancer process.  ...  Collectively these studies provide rather compelling evidence that dietary components modify the incidence and biological behavior of tumors.  ...  Since more than one of these responses may occur simultaneously it is difficult to determine which is most important in dictating the change in cancer risk and/or tumor behavior.  ...
