Life is a relationship among molecules and not a property of any molecule. On the timescale of history of science, Systems Biology is so new that a precise consensus defi nition for the term is yet to be developed. However, the common-sense concept behind systems biology that a living organism is more than a mechanical sum of its parts has been noted,(More)
This study continues our research to further validate the idea that ADHD (Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder) interferes with transition from one task to another and this interference can be quantified by a Consistency Index (CI) derived from a specific mathematical representation of EEG data. We reanalyze 32 previously reported data sets present new(More)
I n 2003, the National Research Council’s BIO2010 report recommended aggressive curriculum restructuring to educate the “quantitative biologists” of the future ( 1). The number of undergraduate and graduate programs in mathematical and computational biology has since increased, and some institutions have added courses in mathematical biology related to(More)
When analyzed separately, data from small studies provide only limited information with limited clinical generalizability, due to small sample size, differing assessments, and limited scope. In this methodological paper we outline a theoretical framework for performing meta-analysis of data obtained from disparate studies using disparate tests, based on(More)
We describe an ongoing collaborative curriculum materials development project between Sweet Briar College and Western Michigan University, with support from the National Science Foundation. We present a collection of modules under development that can be used in existing mathematics and biology courses, and we address a critical national need to introduce(More)
The remarkable advances in the field of biology in the last decade, specifically in the areas of biochemistry, genetics, genomics, proteomics, and systems biology, have demonstrated how critically important mathematical models and methods are in addressing questions of vital importance for these disciplines. There is little doubt that the need for utilizing(More)
Manifestations of ADHD are observed at both psychological and physiological levels and assessed via various psychometric, EEG, and imaging tests. However, no test is 100% accurate in its assessment of ADHD. This study introduces a stochastic assessment combining psychometric tests with previously reported (Consistency Index) and newly developed (Alpha(More)

Accurate diagnosis of attentional disorders such as attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is imperative because there are multiple negative psychosocial sequelae related to undiagnosed and untreated ADHD. Early and accurate detection can lead to effective intervention and prevention of negative sequelae. Unfortunately, diagnosing ADHD presents a(More)
Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is an inflammatory joint disease, in which, unlike systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), renal involvement is uncommon. The major causes of renal disease in RA are usually linked to amyloid or secondary effects of drugs. Nevertheless the relation between IgA, IgA-rheumatoid factor (RF) and renal disease in patients with RA is not(More)
