Happy to see that The Self-Weighting Model (SWM) paper


was briefly cited in the Virus Evolution journal published by Oxford University Press, in the research paper:

Coevolutionary Analysis Identifies Protein–Protein Interaction Sites between HIV-1 Reverse Transcriptase and Integrase

This is a great example of applying data mining techniques to HIV research, a major public health issue according to WHO, UNAIDS, and other world health organizations.

The study agrees with the SWM thesis; i.e., that correlation coefficients are not additive. Glad to see how SWM influenced their data analysis.

Time to restore online my old tutorials on the non-additivity of correlation coefficients so the next generations of scientists are not misled (@SEO quacks and @MOZ pseudo-scientists).
