  • Specifically, while the ratio of wild-type (nucleotide T) to mutant (nucleotide G) peaks at position 2573 was approximately 1:1 or 1:2 in the lung biopsy specimen (Figure S2A, upper panels), sequencing of DNA from the pleural fluid cells demonstrated a dominant mutant G peak (Figure S2A, lower panels).

  • If, however, there is a regular rhythm in the signal, then the peaks and troughs in the amplitude of the signal will slip back into register when the lag approximates the periodicity, causing the correlation to increase again.

  • We wrote the code to analyze trends; to perform MESA; to identify peaks in the data and evaluate a phase shift by comparing two data sets; to plot such peaks around a circle and calculate mean vectors associated with a given set of peaks; to perform statistical tests on these vectors; to plot the data as shown above in Results and Discussion.

  • Recently, the use of surface-enhanced laser desorption/ionization (SELDI) time-of-flight mass spectrometry profiling of patient serum proteins, combined with advanced data mining algorithms, to detect protein patterns associated with malignancy, has been reported as a promising field of research to achieve the goal of early cancer detection [ 1 2 3 4 5 ] . Several reports have detailed the ability of this proteomic method to diagnose the difference between ovarian cancer [ 6 7 8 ] , prostate cancer [ 9 10 11 12 13 ] , and bladder cancer [ 13 14 ] . Much of the effort in these analyses has focused on the use of a variety of data mining tools such as the evaluation of prostate cancer using peaks in the mass to charge (M/Z) region between 2 K and 40 K combined with boosted decision tree analysis [ 10 ] to try to detect patterns that allow the diagnosis of cancer versus non-cancer.

  • Equatorial peaks in species richness have characterised the planet since the Devonian (408–362 million years ago) (Crame 2001) and are typical of a wide range of both terrestrial and marine plants and animals (Gaston 1996; Willig et al.
