  • 52. MINIMUM COVARIANCE DETERMINANT AND EXTENSIONS

    » Abstract The minimum covariance determinant (MCD) method is a highly robust estimator of multivariate location and scatter, for which a fast algorithm is available. Since estimating the covariance matrix is the cornerstone of many multivariate statistical methods, the MCD is an important building block when developing robust multivariate techniques. It also serves as a convenient and efficient too...Continue Reading »

    » Introduction The process of intrinsic apoptosis is tightly regulated by the BCL 2 family of proteins. In human cancers, the anti apoptotic BCL 2 proteins play a critical role in protecting cells, which are often “primed” for apoptosis, from committing to irreversible cell death1. To date, the most well described of the anti apoptotic BCL 2 genes are BCL 2, BCL XL, and MCL 1, and recent...Continue Reading »
