DNA Microarray Technology
  • Powerful tools for understanding mechanisms and enabling predictive medicine
  • Challenges ability of biomedical scientists to analyze and interpret data
  • Challenges mathematical scientists with new problems for which existing analysis paradigms are often inapplicable
difficulties resulting from inadequate training and organization for 21 st century biomedicine
Difficulties Resulting from Inadequate Training and Organization for 21st Century Biomedicine
  • Hype
  • Excessive skepticism and inappropriate criticism
  • Mis-information
    • Amature statisticians
    • Professional statisticians not sufficiently involved in collaborative studies

possible reasons for the success of brb array tools
Possible Reasons for the Success of BRB Array Tools
  • It wasn’t designed by committee
  • It wasn’t a response to user’s dictating what should be developed. Few of our 6000 users really know what they needed, although most probably think that they do
  • It wasn’t developed in response to management decision of what was needed
  • It offers substance, not pro-forma software engineering
  • It offers correct approaches to data analysis in contrast to the vast majority of commercial and free software available
