    Abstract: A methodology is proposed to automatically detect significant symbol associations in genomic databases. A new statistical test assesses the significance of a group of symbols when found in several genesets of a given database. To each pair of symbols, a p-value depending on the frequency of the two symbols and on the number of joint occurrences, is... Show More

    Abstract: This hypothesis research work shows that the induction and the remanent phenomena of the magnetic properties govern the mechanism of the processes of DNA replication and the shortening of the telomere. The solenoid–like formation of each parental DNA strand, which exists at the initial stage of the replication process, enables an electric charge tr... Show More
  • Ending the Karl Pearson Controversy (1904): Over the Incomplete Couplets Produced by Mendel’s Fraction-Addition Method

    Abstract: Early in the 20th Century, leading mathematicians found a link between Mendel’s Laws and Newton’s Binomial. This enabled multigenerational studies of entire populations. In this regard, K. Pearson in 1904 raised objections to Mendel’s predictions that the ‘pure’ (dominant and recessive) descendants of hybrid ancestors turn out to be incomplete asse... Show More
