Perhaps no book in this generation has had a more profound impact on our intellectual and spiritual lives than The Road Less Traveled. We all have a story to tell. We often judge our own stories as being good or bad, right or wrong Living The 80/20 Way: Work Less, Worry Less, Succeed More. eBooks Download The Road Less Traveled [PDF, ePub, Docs] by M.

Using a machine-learning technique gradient boosting regressions with out-of-sample Monte Carlo cross-validation , they could predict the number of publications per gene with reasonable accuracy Spearman rank correlation: 0.
Thus, it seems that the overall research activity on each human gene as judged by the total number of publications is substantially influenced by properties of genes that affect their tractability by multiple experimental methods.
Remarkably, the authors also show that this skewing of interest toward specific genes is consistent over time and that genes that were initially reported on early tend to continue to accrue enhanced attention through more publications.
As the authors and others put it, the rich get richer. What is more, the same factors used to predict the number of publications on a human gene can, together with information on the initial publication date on its orthologues in model organism, be used in a model that accurately predicts the first year of publication on the human gene.

These same models can also predict the allocation of National Institutes of Health NIH funding to grants for human gene research and the existence of approved and preclinical drugs with the gene as the drug target. Taken as a whole, these results suggest that much of the direction for basic and applied research for human genes and disease is influenced by favorable characteristics of the genes and the availability of model organism data, i.
One could argue that we are concentrating on the most interesting genes, which are most likely to be involved in human disease. Indeed, Stoeger and colleagues test this and show that, to some extent, research is focusing on the genes most likely to be sensitive to loss of function mutations or to be identified in genome-wide association studies GWAS of human disease. However, after taking this into account, there is still a shockingly disproportionate concentration on the genes that have already been studied most.
The advent of genome sequences and unbiased approaches to data generation has given us the ability to survey phenotypic effects across all genes. In certain areas, such as GWAS, this has succeeded spectacularly [ 12 ], but we are all aware of the tendency to cling to what we know when examining large amounts of data. The slide of an impenetrable network analysis hairball with a few familiar named nodes picked out to provide validation must be familiar to many.
Despite these advances, Stoeger and colleagues show that the patterns of focusing on the already well studied has continued over the last decade.

However, there is some hope because single gene studies that refer to unbiased studies across many genes tend to focus on more understudied genes than would otherwise be expected. Helpfully, the authors also try to assist us to escape our attention biases with supplementary information that can guide us toward neglected genes that already have suitable data that might aid their study.
There is also a pressing need to identify new drugs and, by implication, new drug targets for a range of unmet need in human disease, while drug targets with genetic validation are more likely to seed a successful drug discovery program [ 13 ]. The Illuminating the Druggable Genome program has gone some way down this route by focusing on neglected proteins from the approximately 3, members of protein families of which other members have been successful drug targets kinases, G-protein-coupled receptors [GPCRs], and ion channels [ 14 ].
We anticipate that these unbiased approaches can shift the focus of drug target identification and prioritization toward genes with higher chances of underpinning successful drug discovery programs beyond the usual suspects.
Many years ago, my graduate study was in a unit that studied the complement genes, and I contributed in a small way to unpicking some of the complex structural variation of the complement C4 genes within the human MHC [ 17 ].
A great deal was known even then about the role of C4 in the complement pathway of the innate immune system, and while there were some indications of potential roles in autoimmune disease, the genetics, biochemistry, and function of C4 seemed well established [ 18 ].
There was no inkling of what remained to be discovered.
Skipping ahead nearly 30 years, I was astonished when McCarroll and colleagues [ 19 ] were able to show a new role for C4 gene variation in schizophrenia. The strongest GWAS signal for schizophrenia lies in the MHC region, which is notoriously difficult to study because of the strong linkage disequilibrium across the complex.
However, by systematically unpicking the configurations of the C4 genes across patients and controls, McCarroll and colleagues were able to show the causal role of complex variation in the C4 genes, implicating a role for increased complement activity in schizophrenia.
So surprising avenues await even down the more traveled roads, and the lessons learned from years of research on specific genes in one area can enlighten our understanding when placed in a new context. Our educational institutions are not in the business of teaching abundance. Most of us have been subjected to an educational process that distorts our thinking to think unnaturally, that is, when it comes to wealth creation.
The natural process of life is inner before outer, mind over matter, the mental before the material. Most people put matters over mind, the material before the mental. Not knowing that their lives are the reflection of their mental and emotional state. The scarcity mentality still dominates the conscious and subconscious minds of the masses.
Common sense isnt common. But ignorance of the truth doesnt make us less guilty. In this new age, we must be in the business of being abundant. This is not just about thinking positive. This is about conditioning our mind, directing our feelings and embracing our true state of being.Because our pre-ordained destiny is to be conformed into His wonderful image.
And Why? Recognizing that -- in the famous opening line of his book -- "Life is difficult" and that the journey to spiritual growth is a long one, Dr. The truth is there are more opportunities and ways to make money than ever before. Your natural vision being super-naturally extended past the obvious to gaze upon the glorious!
