Apricot Kernels Pose Risk of Cyanide Poisoning
Eating more than three small raw apricot kernels, or less than half of one large kernel, in a serving can exceed safe levels. Toddlers consuming even one small apricot kernel risk being over the safe level.
Cell Transplant Treats Parkinson’s in Mice
A University of Wisconsin—Madison neuroscientist has inserted a genetic switch into nerve cells so a patient can alter their activity by taking designer drugs that would not affect any other cell.
Understanding Female HIV Transmission
Glowing virus maps points of entry through entire female reproductive tract for first time.
Genetic Markers Influence Addiction
Differences in vulnerability to cocaine addiction and relapse linked to both inherited traits and epigenetics, U-M researchers find.
Lab-on-a-Chip for Detecting Glucose
By integrating microfluidic chips with fiber optic biosensors, researchers in China are creating ultrasensitive lab-on-a-chip devices to detect glucose levels.
A lncRNA Regulates Repair of DNA Breaks in Breast Cancer Cells
Findings give "new insight" into biology of tough-to-treat breast cancer.
COPD Linked to Increased Bacterial Invasion
Persistent inflammation in COPD may result from a defect in the immune system that allows airway bacteria to invade deeper into the lung.

Data Analysis for Biomolecular Sciences
Bookmark and Share


This new text is an ideal introduction to statistics for biomolecular science students based on a successful course and relating statistical theory to real life examples. Data Analysis for Biomolecular Sciences covers the statistics of biological tests and assays, communication of the results of analyses and the use of statistical tests to aid decision making. Topics include probability, precision and accuracy of measurements, significance testing, the t-test, analysis of variance and linear/nonlinear regression. Students of biological subjects often think of statistics as difficult or unappealing so Data Analysis for the Biomolecular Sciences aims to demystify the subject and provide motivation for learning data handling techniques. The text demonstrates the value of the subject in situations ranging from prenatal screening for spina bifida to the use of DNA profiling as criminal evidence, putting every statistical concept into context by providing numerous examples taken from medical science. Recognising that scientists now use computers to perform statistical analyses, the author has also been able to avoid some of the more difficult mathematics and put more emphasis on the interpretation of figures produced by computer software. An entire chapter is devoted to worked examples of data handling performed with Microsoft Excel. Data Analysis for Biomolecular Sciences is aimed at first year undergraduates studying Biochemistry, Physiology, Pharmacology, and other biological subjects involving assaying biomolecules.
