Bar-Ilan University is a public university in Ramat Gan of the Tel Aviv District, Israel.Established in 1955, Bar Ilan is now Israel's second-largest academic institution. It has nearly 26,800 students and 1,350 faculty members. Bar-Ilan University has eight faculties: Exact science, Life science, Social science, Humanities, Jewish Studies, Medicine, Engineering, and Law. There are also interdisciplinary studies.The University aims to forge closer links between Torah and universal studies, "to blend tradition with modern technologies and scholarship, and teach the compelling ethics of Jewish heritage to all... to synthesize the ancient and modern, the sacred and the material, the spiritual and the scientific."

The invention relates to inhibitors of a bacterial biofilm formation that target the N loop extension of the periplasmic subunit of a bacterial Phosphate Specific Transfer system (PstS), specifically, of P. aeruginosa. The inhibitors of the invention may be either derived from the N loop extension of PstS or directed against the N loop extension. The invention further provides compositions and methods using said inhibitors in inhibiting biofilm formation and in treating pathologic conditions associated therewith.

Cyclic D,L--peptides were shown to have an anti-amyloid aggregation effect. The cyclic peptide (designated cyclic peptide-2) having the sequence [1JwHsK], had a drastic effect on amyloid aggregation. However, the linear equivalent of cyclic peptide-2 did not inhibit amyloid formation. Cyclic peptide 2 was also effective in reducing A-induced toxicity in PC12 cells. According to embodiments of the invention, cyclic peptides may comprise between 6 or 8 amino acids. In an embodiment, half of the amino acid residues are in the D-formation, and the other half are in the L-formation. In an embodiment of the invention, the amino acids alternate between the D and L-formations.

An RMTL gate includes at least two logic blocks, where at least one of the logic blocks operates in multiple modes. The respective logic block mode(s) are selected by a topology selector which applies mode control signals to the logic blocks in order to obtain a selected topology for logic circuit operation. RMTL logic gates may be cascaded and/or interconnected to form an RMTL logic circuit with multiple logic gates which may operate with dynamically varying topologies. Use of random, semi-random or specified control sequences may protect the logic circuit against security attacks.

A system and methods are provided for dynamic classifying in real time cases received in a stream of big data. The system comprises multiple remote autonomous classifiers. Each autonomous classifier generates a classification scheme comprising a plurality of classifier parameters. Upon receiving a case, the system determines from among the plurality of classifier parameters a most similar classifier parameter and the case may be added to a buffer of cases represented by the most similar classifier parameter. When a measure of error between the case and the most similar classifier parameter is greater than a threshold, the buffer is dynamically regrouped into one or more new buffers, according to a criterion of segmentation quality. One or more new classifier parameters, representing the one or more regrouped case buffers, are added to the classification scheme.
