Multiple alignments of genome sequences are helpful guides to functional analysis, but predicting cis-regulatory modules (CRMs) accurately from such alignments remains an elusive goal. We predict CRMs for mammalian genes expressed in red blood cells by combining two properties gleaned from aligned, noncoding genome sequences: a positive regulatory potential(More)
MOTIVATION Arrays allow measurements of the expression levels of thousands of mRNAs to be made simultaneously. The resulting data sets are information rich but require extensive mining to enhance their usefulness. Information theoretic methods are capable of assessing similarities and dissimilarities between data distributions and may be suited to the(More)
Pulmonary vascular changes were studied in 100 cases of isolated mitral stenosis; these included 90 patients in whom lung biopsies were obtained at valvotomy and 10 patients who came to necropsy. Medial thickness of the pulmonary arteries was measured in each case and in 12 cases was correlated with the haemodynamic data. Most patients were young, 78 being(More)
Power spectral analysis of beat-to-beat heart rate variability (HRV) has provided a useful means of understanding the interplay between autonomic and cardiovascular functionality. Despite their utility, commonly employed frequency-domain techniques are limited in their prerequisite for stationary signals and their inability to account for temporal changes(More)
The study and inference of biological pathways and gene regulation mechanisms has become a vital component of modern medicine and drug discovery. Gene expression studies make it possible to understand these mechanisms by simultaneously measuring the expression level of thousands of genes. These data though rich in information are also prone to many quality(More)
