This paper brings together a multidisciplinary initiative to develop advanced statistical and computational techniques for analyzing, assessing, and extracting information from raster maps. This information will provide a rigorous foundation to address a wide range of applications including disease mapping, emerging infectious diseases, landscape ecological(More)
Cholesterol plays a vital role in human body. Its unbalanced homeostasis, however, leads to health related problems. The elevated blood cholesterol levels are now considered a classic coronary risk factor and are suspected to lead to coronary artery diseases, causing 2.6 millions of deaths each year. Here, we develop a two-compartment mathematical model to(More)
Cholesterol is a vital structural and functional molecule in the human body that is only slightly soluble in water and therefore does not easily travels by itself in the bloodstream. To enable cholesterol's targeted delivery to cells and tissues, it is encapsulated by different fractions of lipoproteins, complex particles containing both proteins and(More)

13 Cholesterol plays a vital role in human body and thus its unbalanced homeostasis leads to health problems. Elevated blood cholesterol levels are now considered a classic coronary risk factor and are suspected to lead to coronary artery diseases, causing 2.6 millions of deaths each year. However, many of the mechanisms behind cholesterol-related processes(More)
