All-to-all broadcast scheduling problems are considered in WDM optical passive star networks where k wavelengths are available in the network. It is assumed that each node has exactly one tunable transmitter and one xed tuned receiver. All transmitters can tune to k di erent wavelengths, and have the same tuning delay to tune from one wavelength to another.(More)
Aspirin-intolerant asthma (AIA), a major clinical presentation of aspirin hypersensitivity, affects 10% of adult asthmatics. The genetic risk factors involved in the susceptibility to AIA have recently been investigated, but multilocus single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) associated with this susceptibility has not been evaluated. We examined 246(More)
There are many algorithms for detecting epistatic interactions in GWAS. However, most of these algorithms are applicable only for detecting two-locus interactions. Some algorithms are designed to detect only two-locus interactions from the beginning. Others do not have limits to the order of interactions, but in practice take very long time to detect higher(More)
BACKGROUND Recent advances in high-throughput technology and the emergence of large-scale genomic datasets have enabled detection of genomic features that affect clinical outcomes. Although many previous computational studies have analysed the effect of each single gene or the additive effects of multiple genes on the clinical outcome, less attention has(More)
Network-based approaches have recently gained considerable popularity in high- dimensional regression settings. For example, the Cox regression model is widely used in expression analysis to predict the survival of patients. However, as the number of genes becomes substantially larger than the number of samples, the traditional Cox or L2-regularized Cox(More)
Aspirin Exacerbated Respiratory Disease (AERD) is a chronic medical condition that encompasses asthma, nasal polyposis, and hypersensitivity to aspirin and other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. Several previous studies have shown that part of the genetic effects of the disease may be induced by the interaction of multiple genetic variants. However,(More)
