Various methods for finding confidence intervals for the ratio of binomial parameters are reviewed and evaluated numerically. It is found that the method based on likelihood scores (Koopman, 1984, Biometrics 40, 513-517; Miettinen and Nurminen, 1985, Statistics in Medicine 4, 213-226) performs best in achieving the nominal confidence coefficient, but it may(More)
The cell cycle of Saccharomyces cerevisiae in populations growing at different rates was analyzed by flow microflourometry. The results demonstrate that (i) variation in growth rate of the population depends mainly on variation in the G1 phase of the cell cycle, and (ii) atall growth rates initiation of DNA synthesis occurs concomitantly with initiation of(More)
