Sunday data/statistics link roundup (8/26/12)

First off, a quick apology for missing last week, and thanks to Augusto for noticing! On to the links: Unbelievably the BRCA gene patents were upheld by the lower court despite the Supreme Court coming down pretty unequivocally against patenting correlations between metabolites and health outcomes. I wonder if this one will be overturned if it makes it back up to the Supreme Court.  A really nice interview with David Spiegelhalter on Statistics and Risk.
