Sunday Data/Statistics Link Roundup (1/21)

  1. Is the microarray dead? Jeremey Leipzig seems to think that statistical methods for microarrays should be. I’m not convinced, the technology has finally matured to the point we can use it for personalized medicine and we abandon it for the next hot thing? Not to Andrew for the link.
  2. Data from 5 billion webpages available from the Common Crawl. Want to build your own search tool - or just find out whats on the web? Get your Hadoop on. Nod to Peter S. for the heads up. 
  3. Simon and Tibhsirani criticize the greatly publicized MIC statistic. Nod to John S. for the link.
  4. A public/free statistics class being offered through the IQSS at Harvard.
