A Simple Approach to Ranking Differentially Expressed Gene Expression Time Courses through Gaussian Process Regression
Background: The analysis of gene expression from time series underpins many biological studies. Two basic forms of analysis recur for data of this type: removing inactive (quiet) ...

An analysis of the LRE-Algorithm using Sojourn times
The classical method of evaluation of simulations surely is the batch means method, see e.g. [Bratley et al. 1987], giving confidence intervals to express the precision of the sim...
