Logistic regression: moving from significant results to meaningful insight

Association studies are a favourite tool for geneticists to understand the genetics that determine our health. It is simply routine now to test every mutation amongst your patients for association with a given trait (for example BMI or breast cancer).

Docker: plugging into the jupyter/datascience-notebook

Again, quick notes for myself as this is subtly different depending on whether I am on a windows host or a linux host. Install Pulling down the datascience-notebook image is easy-peasy: $ docker pull jupyter/datascience-notebook Starting the notebook Again, this

Docker – RStudio server

Quick note for myself – installing and starting RStudio via docker: install: $ docker pull rocker/rstudio starting: $ docker run -d  -p 8787:8787 rocker/rstudio accessing (from browser): localhost:8787 username and password are: rstudio

Using bcftools to merge and filter VCF files

GOALS to merge genotype calls from separate VCF files (e.g. one VCF file per sample) into one master VCF file with a column for each sample. and filter this master VCF file and extract regions of interest EDIT: have edited

Quantum mechanics & purgatory

“Quantum mechanics theorises that there is unlimited number of universes. Which means, there is infinite amount of me making this talk and, infinite amount of you… listening. Think about that.” “Andrea”, Limitless, season 1, episode 18.   #hilarious!

Manipulating VCF Files

In this post we are going to cover some very basic scenarios for manipulating VCF files. We will begin with a (very) brief description of the VCF format, look at how to extract targeted regions using tabix. In a future post

“data scientists are going to replace business analysts”

Here is an interesting question posed by Michael Stonebreaker: Now suppose that instead of hiring a business intelligence person you hired a data scientist instead. He will build a predictive model of what will sell. So ask yourself, would you
