Mathematics and Biology: Toxicogenomics as the New Frontier

June 30, 2005 8:00 pm | by John A. Wass, Ph.D. | Articles | Comments

The latest installment of my crusade to bring the biologists and mathematicians/statisticians together was given a small assist from a very interesting and scientifically "hot" area known as toxicogenomics. Recently, Morgan et. Al .[1] had published a paper entitled "Complementary Roles for Toxicologic Pathology and Mathematics in Toxicogenomics

The Unscrambler: A Different Approach to Multivariate Data Analysis and Experimental Design

June 30, 2005 8:00 pm | by John A. Wass, Ph.D. | Articles | Comments

This is a program you may hate the first few hours and love forever after John A. Wass, Ph.D. Unscrambler is specifically directed to multivariate analysis and experimental design, with emphasis on problems in chemistry and industrial production. It is one of the more unusual packages that I have seen in terms of its logic and, in this regard, may be a welcome change

My New Laptop Does Not Have Any RS232 Ports & #151 What Should I Do??

June 30, 2005 8:00 pm | by Thomas Lutz | Articles | Comments

Easy solutions for connecting to a USB port Thomas Lutz Although USB stands for “universal serial bus,” the USB interface does not work anything at all like a standard RS232 serial port. Like RS232 serial ports, the USB ports on a PC are designed for interfacing external devices. However, any piece of equipment that is designed to connect to a USB port must come with a Windows device driver that essentially informs

The Importance of Nothing... Identifying character errors through font substitution

June 30, 2005 8:00 pm | by John R. Joyce, Ph.D. | Articles | Comments

No! Calm down, this isn't going to be a nihilist diatribe, I have something much more concrete in mind — data validation, in fact. Hang in there, you'll see the connection soon. The bane of the laboratory is data entry errors. These can take many forms, sometimes they are simple transcription errors, sometimes it is a substitution error, where one character is mistaken
