BSU-RCMI Biostatistics Core Laboratory

Director: Ahmad, Anwar


"Applied statistical methodologies and data analysis techniques are critical under-girding factors in research and knowledge advancement. Appropriate experimental design lays foundation of sound research plans; sample size determines the power of significance and efficient utilization of scarce resources; and adequate data analysis generate results that are valid and true representative of the population in question. The Biostatistical Support Unit (BSU) provides statistical services and research support to RCMI investigators, other faculty, as well as to graduate and undergraduate students."(http://www.jsums.edu/cset/rcmi/bsu.htm)

  • Evolver ( Software )

    "Genetic algorithm optimization add-in for Microsoft Excel."

  • Mathematica ( Software )

    "Almost any workflow involves computing results, and that's what Mathematica does—from building a hedge fund trading website or publishing interactive engineering textbooks to developing embedded image recognition algorithms or teaching calculus.

    Mathematica is renowned as the world's ultimate application for computations. But it's much more—it's the only development platform fully integrating computation into complete workflows, moving you seamlessly from initial ideas all the way to deployed individual or enterprise solutions."

  • MATLAB ( Software )

    "A high-level language and interactive environment that enables you to perform computationally intensive tasks faster than with traditional programming languages such as C, C++, and Fortran."

  • Minitab ( Software )

    "Statistical and Process Management Software for Six Sigma and Quality Improvement."

  • Neural Tools ( Software )

    "NeuralTools brings a sophisticated new capability for forecasting and prediction in Microsoft Excel: Neural Networks. You'll make new predictions based on the patterns in your known data with uncanny accuracy. NeuralTools imitates brain functions in order to 'learn' the structure of your data. Once NeuralTools understands your data, it can take new inputs and make intelligent predictions. Your spreadsheet can 'think' for you like never before."

  • Neuroshell ( Software )

    Fast neural network software.

  • Precision Tree ( Software )

    "Performs decision analysis in Microsoft Excel using decision trees and influence diagrams."

  • RISK ( Software )

    "Risk analysis using Monte Carlo simulation to show you many possible outcomes in your Microsoft Excel spreadsheet."

  • Risk Optimizer ( Software )

    "Combines the Monte Carlo simulation technology of @RISK, Palisade's risk analysis add-in, with genetic algorithm optimization technology to allow the optimization of Excel spreadsheet models that contain uncertain values."

  • SAS ( Software )

    Business analytics software. SAS packages available include SAS/Graph, SAS/GIS, SAS/STAT, Tools, BASE SAS, SAS/ACCESS, SAS/ASSIST, Miner, SAS/SHARE, SAS/ETS, and SAS/Genetics.

  • SPSS ( Software )

    "A set of data and predictive analytics tools for business users, analysts and statistical programmers."

  • StatTools ( Software )

    A Microsoft Excel statistics add-in.

  • TopRank ( Software )

    "Performs automated 'what if' sensitivity analysis on Microsoft Excel spreadsheets."
