Not much I can publish on here yet, but we’re making real progress on a few different morphological phenotype classification problems.
In other news, a couple of interesting workshops and research days are coming up that I’m excited about. On the 29th, Rob Tibshirani‘s coming to town for the U of T biostatistics research day. While Rob Tibshirani’s keynote will assuredly be worth going to, all the talks that day are promising ones.
Looking further ahead, there’s a summer school in statistical genetics at the University of Washington. One of my statistical role models John Storey is co-leading a short course on statistical approaches to data analysis in gene expression profiling. It’s not cheap and it’s a little out of the way, but I’d really love to try and catch this course.
