Gamete donation is a part of assisted reproductive technology (ART) with third party reproduction used to conceive. Using donor gamete sample provides medically infertile woman to increase her chance of conceiving and delivering a child. In couple seeking IVF treatment, especially female partner is distressed with pressure from the family, relatives and society. And hence the couples expect to have the gamete donor who may have physical resemblance with the women partner. The gamete bank collects the recipient attributes and matches with the donor profiles that closely resemble recipient partner, including ethnicity, height, body-build, complexion, eye color, hair color and texture. Once a possible match is found, the recipient is given information about the gamete donor and decides whether to proceed or wait for another donor. The practice followed by ART specialist for selecting the gamete donor demands that the profiles are very popularly selected based on attribute priority. The couple expects that the gamete donor should have certain physical resemblance with couple partners. Many a times couple gives preferences for certain attribute for resemblance. By understanding this problem we have designed an attribute priority algorithm that selects the donor profile based on the attributes set with priority. We have selected total 543 records collected from gamete banks. This technique is useful when the couples prioritize the attributes while selecting the gamete donor profiles.

Important Announcements

All the authors, conference coordinators, conveners, and guest editors kindly check their articles' originality before submitting them to IJCERT. If any material is found to be duplicate submission or sent to other journals when the content is in the process with IJCERT, fabricated data, cut and paste (plagiarized), at any stage of processing of material, IJCERT is bound to take the following actions.
1. Rejection of the article.
2. The author will be blocked for future communication with IJCERT if duplicate articles are submitted.
3. A letter regarding this will be posted to the Principal/Director of the Institution where the study was conducted.
4. A List of blacklisted authors will be shared among the Chief Editors of other prestigious Journals
We have been screening articles for plagiarism with a world-renowned tool: Turnitin However, it is only rejected if found plagiarized. This more stern action is being taken because of the illegal behavior of a handful of authors who have been involved in ethical misconduct. The Screening and making a decision on such articles costs colossal time and resources for the journal. It directly delays the process of genuine materials.
