Welcome to DataScope, a web site devoted to the art and science of statistical graphics, with special attention to multivariate data analysis. The web site is also home for materials related to research organization and drug design.
This web-site has been initiated and is maintained by Paul Lewi and Luc Wouters.
Table of Contents
- Drug Design with Dr. Paul Janssen:
- Speaking of Graphics
An ebook on graphicacy in science, technology, and business by Paul Lewi. The book covers the history and development of data visualization methods starting with the Quipu of the Incas and going through to the sophisticated methods of multivariate data analysis.
- Multivariate Data Analysis
A short introduction to multivariate analysis starting from univariate and bivariate methods to factorial data analysis, including principal component analysis, correspondence analysis, and spectral map analysis (also referred to as log-ratio analysis).
An open source library written in the R programming language devoted to multivariate projection methods (mpm). The library was originally developed for the analysis of gene expression data, but the multivariate projection methods that are implemented in it have been succesfully applied to other fields of quantitative science such as: biology, pharmacology, medicinal chemistry, archeology, marketing research, etc.
- Graphical Exploration of Gene Expression Data by Spectral Map Analysis
A presentation held at the DIA (Drug Information Association) 3rd International Workshop on Statistical Methodology in Non-Clinical R&D, September 26-27, 2002, Barcelona, Spain.
- Succesful Pharmaceutical Discovery
An article submitted to the Journal R&D Management, describing the concept of research organization of Dr. Paul Janssen, founder of Janssen Pharmaceutica. The concept comprises organization around competent people and continuous critical questions.
- Statistical Thinking and Reasoning in Experimental Research (presentation)
A one day workshop on how statistical thinking permeates the process of biomedical research.
