The purpose of the present study was to evaluate the effects of aerobic physical training (APT) on heart rate variability (HRV) and cardiorespiratory responses at peak condition and ventilatory anaerobic threshold. Ten young (Y: median = 21 years) and seven middle-aged (MA = 53 years) healthy sedentary men were studied. Dynamic exercise tests were performed(More)
We propose a birth-death-merge data-driven reversible jump (DDRJ) for multiple-QTL mapping where the phenotypic trait is modeled as a linear function of the additive and dominance effects of the unknown QTL genotypes. We compare the performance of the proposed methodology, usual reversible jump (RJ) and multiple-interval mapping (MIM), using simulated and(More)
We present a generalization of the usual (independent) mixture model to accommodate a Markovian first-order mixing distribution. We propose the data-driven reversible jump, a Markov chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) procedure, for estimating the a posteriori probability for each model in a model selection procedure and estimating the corresponding parameters.(More)
A common interest in gene expression data analysis is to identify from a large pool of candidate genes the genes that present significant changes in expression levels between a treatment and a control biological condition. Usually, it is done using a statistic value and a cutoff value that are used to separate the genes differentially and nondifferentially(More)
Paper-based assays are an attractive low-cost option for clinical chemistry testing, due to characteristics such as short time of analysis, low consumption of samples and reagents, and high portability of assays. However, little attention has been given to the evaluation of the performance of these simple tests, which should include the use of a statistical(More)
Paper-based devices are a portable, user-friendly, and affordable technology that is one of the best analytical tools for inexpensive diagnostic devices. Three-dimensional microfluidic paper-based analytical devices (3D-μPADs) are an evolution of single layer devices and they permit effective sample dispersion, individual layer treatment, and multiplex(More)
