Reshef et al. presented a novel measure of dependence-the maximal information coefficient (MIC) aimed to capture a wide range of associations between pairs of variables, and a statistical test for independence based on MIC. They defined a concept of equitability and claim that non-equitable methods are less practical for data exploration. By simple power(More)
A popular approach for testing if two univariate random variables are statistically independent consists of partitioning the sample space into bins, and evaluating a test statistic on the binned data. The partition size matters, and the optimal partition size is data dependent. While for detecting simple relationships coarse partitions may be best, for(More)
The use of artificial joints for the treatment of osteoarthritis is expected to expand considerably over the next decade. While newer technologies can offer yet further improvements in total knee systems, implementation will be strongly affected by the need to satisfy apparently competing requirements. Patients expect quicker rehabilitation, improved(More)
In the literature, different methods have been used to describe the motion of the anatomic knee and total knee replacements (TKR). The major goal of this study was to identify the most suitable methods for comparing TKR motion with that of the anatomic knee, whether for the purpose of developing new TKR designs, or evaluating existing ones. A further goal(More)
Copy number variation (CNV) plays a role in pathogenesis of many human diseases, especially cancer. Several whole genome CNV association studies have been performed for the purpose of identifying cancer associated CNVs. Here we undertook a novel approach to whole genome CNV analysis, with the goal being identification of associations between CNV of(More)
INTRODUCTION Unstable hemoglobin disorders are characterized by a congenital, mostly familial chronic hemolytic anemia with episodes of severe hemolysis during febrile illnesses. Usually, isopropanol and heat stability tests lead to the diagnosis which is confirmed by protein and gene sequencing. Generation of the mutations is still a subject of(More)
