Sequence of the Tsetse Fly (Glossina morsitans): Vector of African Trypanosomiasis.
Watanabe J., Hattori M., Berriman M., …Osamor V. C., Balyeidhusa, A., et al.,
Published at Science 344(6182) , Volume 344 , Issue 6182 , Pages 380-386 , Published in 2015
Tsetse flies are the sole vectors of human African trypanosomiasis throughout sub-Saharan Africa. Both sexes of adult tsetse feed exclusively on blood and contribute to disease transmission. Notable differences between tsetse and other disease vectors include obligate microbial symbioses, viviparous reproduction, and lactation. Here, we describe the sequence and annotation of the 366-megabase G...
Tuberculosis–Diagnostic Expert System: An architecture for translating patients information from the web for use in tuberculosis diagnosis.
Osamor V.C., Azeta A.A., Ajulo O.
Published at Health Informatics Journal , Volume 20 , Issue 4 , Pages 245-287 , Published in 2014
Background: Over 1.5–2 million tuberculosis deaths occur annually. Medical professionals are faced with a lot of challenges in delivering good health-care with unassisted automation in hospitals where there are several patients who need the doctor’s attention. Objective: To automate the pre-laboratory screening process against tuberculosis infection to aid diagnosis and make it fast and acc...

Body mass index (BMI) is a measure of adiposity . A raised BMI is a risk factor for several diseases such as type 2 diabetes mellitus [2, 3]. Generally, prevalence and complications of diabetes is more pronounced in females than males as result of gender associated obesity. Our multi-disciplinary research group is involved in assessment and study of diseases and associated issues of public h...

Background. Anthropometric measures have been widely used for body weight classification in humans. Waist circumference has been advanced as a useful parameter for measuring adiposity. This study evaluated the correlation between body mass index (BMI) and waist circumference and examined their significance as indicators of health status in adults. Design and Methods. The subject included 489 h...
Reducing the Time Requirement of k-means
Osamor V.C., Adebiyi E., Oyelade J. O., Doumbia S.
Published at PloS One , Volume 7 , Issue 12 , Pages e49946 , Published in 2012
Traditional k-means and most k-means variants are still computationally expensive for large datasets, such as microarray data, which have large datasets with large dimension size d. In k-means clustering, we are given a set of n data points in d-dimensional space Rd and an integer k. The problem is to determine a set of k points in Rd, called centers, so as to minimize the mean squared distance...
Experimental and Computational Applications of Microarray Technology for Malaria Eradication in Africa.
Published at Sci. Res. Essays , Volume 4 , Issue 7 , Pages 652-664 , Published in 2009
Various mutation assisted drug resistance evolved in Plasmodium falciparum strains and insecticide resistance to female Anopheles mosquito account for major biomedical catastrophes standing against all efforts to eradicate malaria in Sub-Saharan Africa. Malaria is endemic in more than 100 countries and by far the most costly disease in terms of human health causing major losses among many Afric...

Published at CENTRAL BANK OF NIGERIA ECONOMIC AND FINANCIAL REVIEW , Volume Vol. 51 No 2 , Issue June 2013 , Pages 63-91 , Published in 2013
Banks are the most important example of a class of institutions called financial intermediaries, firms that extend credit to borrowers using funds raised from savers. However, credit is not an end in itself; it is a means to an end. The ultimate goal is to affect productivity. For both developing and developed countries, micro, small and medium scale enterprises (MSMEs) play important rol...
