Book Review: Statistics for Biologists

This is sort of a book review: Statistics for Biologists is a collection of articles from the Nature journals including the Nat Meth Points of Significance column. This collection brings together the POS articles published since 2013, which aim to provide biologists with a basic introduction to stats. There are practical guides and other resources including a box-plot tool for R (try creating one in Excel).

  1. This is one of my go to references when I am running analysis or planning an experiment. I have always been really bad at remembering the tiny details in statistics, this book presents them in a way that is intuitive and easy to understand. Better yet it has deepened my understanding of some core concepts that let me choose the right statistical model and given me the tools to argue for why I chose that particular model. I would highly recommend as a desktop reference.
