The presence of Foxp3(+) regulatory CD4(+) T cells in tumor lesions is considered one of the major causes of ineffective immune response in cancer. It is not clear whether intratumoral T(reg) cells represent T(reg) cells pre-existing in healthy mice, or arise from tumor-specific effector CD4(+) T cells and thus representing adaptive T(reg) cells. The(More)
SUMMARY Several outlier and subgroup identification statistics (OASIS) have been proposed to discover transcriptomic features with outliers or multiple modes in expression that are indicative of distinct biological processes or subgroups. Here, we borrow ideas from the OASIS methods in the bioinformatics and statistics literature to develop the 'most(More)
We derive herein the limiting laws for certain stationary distributions of birth-and-death processes related to the classical model of chemical adsorption-desorption reactions due to Langmuir. The model has been recently considered in the context of a hybridization reaction on an oligonucleotide DNA microarray. Our results imply that the truncated gamma-and(More)
Background High-dimensional biological data presents the opportunity to discover novel forms of biological heterogeneity, such as overexpression or suppression of expression of a particular gene in a subset of a cohort. This novel biological heterogeneity appears in the data as outliers or distinct subgroups. Here, we describe and evaluate three procedures(More)
