Prologue Before we begin, take a second. Open this link in a new tab. Did you do it? I’ll wait. Oh, you opened it? Great. Sorry for the forwardness, but this book is one of the greatest tools I have used in taking myself from a beginner in programming to a full time data scientist.Continue reading “Regression From the Mathematical Perspective: Topics of Data Modeling”

## Descriptive Statistics with Biological Data: Topics of Machine Learning

Introduction to Descriptive Statistics with Biological Data Our series on statistical data modeling has emerged from it’s introductory era into something with a bit more substance. Our initial articles gave an initial foray into the topic, addressing the uses of statistics and a bit of insight into the concept of sampling. Following this, we expandedContinue reading “Descriptive Statistics with Biological Data: Topics of Machine Learning”

## Methods of Biological Data Modeling: Techniques of Statistical Display

Modeling Biological Data Statistics is the cornerstone of science. Data serves as the matter by which statistics operates upon. However, these numerical computations are seldom useful unless they are efficaciously modeled. The purpose of data modeling is to organize data and statistical information in a succinct form such that observation of the model itself providesContinue reading “Methods of Biological Data Modeling: Techniques of Statistical Display”

## A Guide to Modeling Biological Data: Introductory Statistics and Sampling

The Premise When it comes to working with biological systems, a prolific amount of data may be generated. Whether it be working with an animal population, modeling protein interactions, or accessing gene identities, biological systems are hot beds for data. This data is useless unless we have some way to understand it. This modeling biologicalContinue reading “A Guide to Modeling Biological Data: Introductory Statistics and Sampling”

## Pandas Ufuncs: How to Execute Data Operations with Pandas

What are Pandas Ufuncs? Pandas Ufuncs is a label that is short for universal functions. The use of these computations stems from their embedded nature within the NumPy library, and allow a programmer to execute vectorized functions which greatly enhance the efficiency of computation on large data arrays. Before getting in to the nuts andContinue reading “Pandas Ufuncs: How to Execute Data Operations with Pandas”
