The Data Science Initiative offers workshops and consultations that help you learn how to analyze data from bioinformatics or clinical research projects. We welcome questions about any stage of analysis from planning to presentation, regardless of your level of experience with data analysis. Our goal is to help you produce valid and reproducible results.
Meet our bioinformatics and statistics expert
Dr. Lindquist teaches and consults on topics related to statistics and bioinformatics, as well as programming in R. She also has expertise with shell scripting and other languages.
Supporting research and publishing
Dr. Lindquist guided a medical student on the statistical analysis for a recent publication in The Bone & Joint Journal. Mixed effects regression models were used to identify factors associated with developing complications after staged hip replacement surgeries. These findings will help clinicians and patients better prepare for these surgeries.
