"The next medium, whatever it is - it may be the extension of consciousness - will include television as its content, not as its environment, and will transform television into an art form. A computer as a research and communication instrument could enhance retrieval, obsolesce mass library organization, retrieve the individual's encyclopedic function and flip it into a private line to speedily tailored data of a saleable kind."

Rare Variants Create Synthetic Genome-Wide Associations
The hypothesis is that rare variants could have “synthetic associations” by happening, stochastically, more often in association with one allele at the common site compared to the other allele at that site. The authors use smulations are used to show the conditions underneath which synthetic associations might occur.
"Now it is demonstrated in a simulation study that even those signals that have been detected for common variants could, in principle, come from the effect of rare ones. This has important implications for our understanding of the genetic architecture of human disease and in the design of future studies to detect causal genetic variants."http://www.plosbiology.org/article/info:doi/10.1371/journal.pbio.1000294

Records examined from 100 randomly selected patient admissions.
Documents aligned using a modified version of an established DNA sequence
alignment algorithm (Levenshtein edit distance algorithm). High levels of
redundancy were observed with successive documents of the
same type, and across document types.
