Distribution of insertion sequences in Tn1546 element in vancomycin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus in Sulaimani, Kurdistan of Iraq

  In 2008, nine clinical isolates of vancomycin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus containing Tn1546 were recovered in Sulaimani, Iraq. The genetic diversity in Tn1546-like elements has been documented previously. The differences described thus far have included the integration of insertion sequence (IS) elements IS1216V and IS1251. With polymerase chain...

Pattern clustering of forest fires based on meteorological variables and its classification using hybrid data mining methods

This paper outlines two hybrid approaches to investigate the nonlinear relationship between size of a forest fire and meteorological variables (temperature, relative humidity, wind speed and rainfall). Self organizing map was used to cluster the historical meteorological variables. The clustered data were then used as inputs for two different approaches, the back-propagation neural network and the rule generation...
