Statistics help

What is the Biology Statistics Emergency Room?

This is a service available to all biologists at the Dept. of Biology, Lund. The basic idea is to have a fellow biologist available for all kinds of questions or discussions regarding statistical issues connected to biological research. The service is open once a week – every Tuesday between 9 am and noon. Each week a particular biologist, with above-average knowledge in statistics, is available. See schedule below.

The service is free of charge, but each errand should be limited to half an hour, especially if there are other people waiting. It might be worthwhile to call in advance and book a time. Should a question require further analysis, complex modelling or other extraordinary handiwork, the biologist on duty can assist in forwarding the question to a suitable specialist.
