Abstract :

The stage-wise agreement between two long ranked lists is characterized by adapting Fligner and Verducci?s (1988) multistage ranking model into the moving average maximum likelihood estimator (MAMLE), a locally smooth estimator that is used to measure the strength of association between the lists and to provide a stopping rule to detect the stage where the signal ultimately degenerates into noise. This MAMLE stopping rule is further applied to bivariate data arranged in tau-path order to measure the length of the relationship instrongly associated subsets of gene expression and chemical potency data from the National Cancer Institute.
