It can arise that underused data analytic methodology may enjoy wide-ranging applicability.
I showcase use of the Patient Rule Induction Method (PRIM) at two radically different scales:
(1) identifying genomic ‘3D hotspots’ — localized regions wherein an attribute superposed on a 3D genome reconstruction is extreme; and (2) identifying stellar kinematic groups and open clusters in the Milky Way. In the first example a novel principal curve based reconstruction technique is introduced while, in both instances, nuances surrounding coordinate systems and inference are addressed.
Location and Zoom:
