abstract: 

<p style="text-align:justify;">The basis of individualised divergences for shape analysis is explained. The rediscovery and popularisation of these probabilistic distance measures has been fostered by Professor Kantilal Mardia, MSc, PhD, DSc, '94…a statistician specialising in directional statistics, multivariate analysis, geostatistics, statistical bioinformatics and statistical shape analysis '94 (Wikipedia 30th December 2013) for the last 10 years. Recent developments and diverse outstanding challenges in the use of these informational measures when simultaneously analysing discriminatory evidence in biological and medical profiles are outlined. A new multidimensional example in understanding the genetic aetiology of drug‐induced adverse events is given.</p>
