This week has been absolutely exhausting. I’ve been having PhD classes (statistics, effective writing, and more statistics) almost every day (save tomorrow) and also heaps of work piled up. I’ve got new data to work on, and also I’ve been assigned to do something else along with my current bioinformatics work.
I also need to get in touch with the Partek software representative to let him know what I think of their genomics software. In all honesty it’s quite nice, however it lacks the ability of apply Significance Analysis of Microarrays (SAM) which is essential for our work. It’s a shame, because both the gene expression module (very fast Robust Multichip Analysis - RMA - implementation) and the copy number variation module are good, but alone they won’t justify the price.
