Subject: [BioC] similarity between two gene lists with varied length

Dear listers,

a little off-topic:

I am looking for and compare algorithms which can calculate "distance" or
"similarity" between two gene lists with different lengths.

Any paper, any implementation in R and any suggestion is welcome!
