Childhood psoriasis: Disease spectrum, comorbidities, and challengesSoumajyoti Sarkar, Sandipan Dhar, Siba P RaychaudhuriIndian Journal of Paediatric Dermatology 2019 20(3):191-198Psoriasis is a chronic, inflammatory, papulosquamous disorder with a variable clinical spectrum. Although it affects population of all age groups, the significance and negative impact of childhood psoriasis is often neglected worldwide. In nearly one-third of the psoriatic population, psoriasis appears during the childhood....

However, it brings many challenges, mainly issues about privacy preservation and lightweight cryptography. Many schemes have been designed so far but none of them simultaneously takes into account these aspects. In this paper, we propose an efficient attribute-based credential scheme for IoT devices. We use elliptic curve cryptography without pairing, blind signing,...

Genes, Vol. 10, Pages 492: Cloudy with a Chance of Insights: Context Dependent Gene Regulation and Implications for Evolutionary StudiesResearch in various fields of evolutionary biology has shown that divergence in gene expression is a key driver for phenotypic evolution. An exceptional contribution of cis-regulatory divergence has been found to contribute to morphological diversification. In the light of these findings, the analysis of genome-wide expression data has become one of the central tools...
