What do you use data analysis tools for?

I am in the field of High Throughput Screening. It is an area that tends to generate what I call high volume low density data. Two or three hundred thousand n = 1 data points can be generated against a cell based target in a couple of weeks. Yet, what is the fundamental quality of this data? HTS is only beginning to adopt tools from DNA microarray analysis and other fields to answer these questions. I use R to explore new and creative statistical techniques like the Minimum Significant Difference (MSD) or Minimum Significant Ratio (MSR) to explore variance in primary and post-primary HTS screens.

What statistical/data analysis tools do you use?

I use GraphPad Prism and Excel to a limited extent. Mostly I use R/RStudio and on occasion Mathematica.


I'm a "wet" biologist interested in data analysis, mining, and machine learning. A sophomore in terms of R who's just started learning python.
