    This book can be roughly divided in three parts. In the first part (comprising the first eight chapters) the author lays out the foundation for the mixed effects model. The second part of the book (comprised by Chapter 9) discusses methods of model diagnostics and influential analysis, whereby influence is the equivalent of sensitivity analysis, in that they both aim to determine the effect of a s...

    Two new criteria for identifying differentially expressed genes, the average difference score (ADS) and the mean difference score (MDS), are formulated. The performance of ADS and MDS were compared to that of several commonly used criteria, including Welch t-statistic (WTS), Fisher correlation score (FCS), Wilcoxon rank sum (WRS) and independently consistent expression (ICE) on simulated and real ...

    The authors have proposed an extension to the Q-learning algorithm that incorporates the existing clinical expertise into the trial-and-error process of acquiring an appropriate administration strategy of recombinant human erythropoietin (rHuEPO) to patients with anemia due to end-stage renal disease (ESRD). The specific modification lies in multiple updates of the Q-values for several dose/respon... View full abstract»

    Abduction and induction are two forms of reasoning that have been widely used in machine learning. The combination of abduction and induction has recently been explored from a number of angles, one of which is the area of systems biology. The research reported in this article is being conducted as part of the MetaLog project, which aims to build causal models of the actions of toxins from empirica... View full abstract»

    The application of anesthetic agents is known to have significant effects on the electroencephalogram (EEG) waveform. Information extraction now routinely goes beyond second-order spectral analysis, as obtained via power spectral methods, and uses higher-order spectral methods. In this article, we present a model that generalizes the autoregressive class of polyspectral models by having a semipara... View full abstract»

    In this study, radial basis function (RBF) neural networks are used to identify seizure or preseizure states. As input to the RBF networks the study used raw EEG data, coefficients from a Fourier transform, and wavelet decomposition of the raw data. An RBF network consists of an input layer, a single hidden layer, and an output node. The use of half-second windows of raw data as input demonstrates... View full abstract»

    Bioinformatics tools are designed to help researchers sift through vast amounts of data and identify previously unseen relationships. Unfortunately, the limited sophistication of many of these tools can make this process a struggle to manage an extensive search that branches into multiple sets of results. Bioinformatics tools implemented as rich internet applications (RIA) will have behavior simil... View full abstract»
