One thing that regularly stumps scientists is the handling of data. We seem to be very good at generating obscene amounts of it, but representing it meaningfully can be a little off putting if you don’t happen to be a bioinformatician. Let’s continue our tutorial series by introducing Two-Sample t-Tests and Paired t-Tests to see how we can easily incorporate statistical analysis into our work.
One thing that regularly stumps scientists is the handling of data. We seem to be very good at generating obscene amounts of it, but representing it meaningfully can be a little off putting if you don’t happen to be a bioinformatician. Let’s wet our toes with a simple One Sample t-test to see how we can easily incorporate statistical analysis into our work.
For all you car owners out there, doesn’t it drive you crazy not knowing what the heck you are filling your cars up with? Well, stop wondering and start learning about the composition of fuels and how its chemistry affects the performance of your car!
Like many others out there, I require at least one cup of coffee a day to function – in fact I am drinking a cappuccino as I type this. Interestingly, there is more chemistry involved in the brewing and consumption of coffee than just getting your caffeine fix. We also explore death by coffee, because that’s what the masses want. Right?
Technically speaking, a human penis can’t actually be ‘broken’. That’s because it’s made up not of bone, but of soft, spongy tissue. But what about animals? Do our close and not-so-close relatives possess boney penises? And if so, what is the function of a penis bone? The answer isn’t as simple as you might think.
Virtually all scientific reports and articles deal with numbers of some sort, and what better way to represent large amounts of data than on a well made graph? Unfortunately not all graphs are created equal; this post will introduce the basics of graph building and common pitfalls to avoid.
Pharmaceutical AbbVie’s Humira for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis recorded sales of USD 16 billion in 2016 alone. As the pharmaceutical industry as a whole looks beyond small molecules to biologicals as therapeutics, there has been increasing interest and investment in research in the biotech sector. In this post a new approach to synthesizing small peptides is outlined, featuring an abstract written by a chemist doing active research in this area. Exciting Stuff!
