The test statistic for a gene set is based on score statistics for generalized linear models and takes advantage of the directed acyclic graph structure of the gene ontology to create gene sets. The method can use other gene-set structures, such as the Kyoto Encyclopedia of Genes and Genomes (KEGG), or even user-defined sets. The approach of Dr. Schaid's Statistical Genetics and Genetic Epidemiology Lab combines SNPs into genes, and genes into gene sets, but ensures that positive and negative effects on a trait do not cancel.

Causal webs in epidemiology

Epidemiology does aim to go beyond mere association and, arguably, statistics in epidemiology is driven by a causal goal, be it to provide a causal explanation of a disease or to inform actions such as public health policies.

Computational Epidemiology

As opposed to mathematical and statistical epidemiology, computational epidemiology is in its infancy.

That is, a statistic is computed and then compared to a model of what the world would look like if the experiment was repeated an infinite number of times when there were no effects. In this case the statistic computed is called the chi-square statistic. This statistic will be discussed first, followed by a discussion of its theoretical distribution. Finding critical values of chi-square and its interpretation will conclude the chapter.

Standardized distributions have a mean = 0 and a s = 1. Always calculate descriptive statistics on all your key research variables because your variables will have to approximate the same distribution as the test statistic that you want to use.

EXTOXNET TIBs - Epidemiology

Epidemiology is the study of diseases in populations of humans or other animals, specifically how, when and where they occur. Epidemiologists attempt to determine what factors are associated with diseases (risk factors), and what factors may protect people or animals against disease (protective factors). The science of epidemiology was first developed to discover and understand possible causes of contagious diseases like smallpox, typhoid and polio among humans.

Statistical Formula Notation in R

The corresponding mathematical notation would be. Yi = ?0 + Xi?1 + Zi?2 + i. Importantly, the use of the “+" symbol in this context is different than its usual meaning; the R formula notation is just a short-hand for which variable to include in the statistical model. and how. The following table lists the meaning of these symbols when used in an R modeling formula.

Chapter 9: Introduction to the t Statistic

First of all, you need to know who developed the t statistic. His name was William S. Gossett, but he published under the pseudonym Student. (His employer wouldn’t let him publish under his own name.) Thus, the statistic is often called Student’s t. But that’s not the good part. Gossett actually had the world’s best job…even better than L’il Abner’s job as a mattress tester. Can you guess how he earned his living?

Overview of Statistical Tests

Virtually every statistic, parametric or nonparametric, has assumptions which must be met prior. to the application of the experimental design and subsequent statistical analysis. ... Test statistic is W; roughly a measure of the straightness. of the quantile-quantile plot. The closer W is to 1, the more normal the sample is. Available in R and most other major stats applications.

The t Statistic

Conceptually, t = observed difference between the two means / difference expected by chance. A. The t-statistic is a substitute for z (z is same as t except z requires more information about the population. We rarely have much information about the population, so we end up using t much more often than z. - to use z, you must know- s (the population standard deviation). - what do you do if you don't know s ?
