Hi everyone!

Please find attached a paper by De’ath and Fabricus (2000) on CART (Classification and Regression trees). I think this paper really outlines what CART is and how it can be used.  I suggest everyone read it before thursdays class so that you get an understanding of what we will be teaching.

A paper on ordinations is coming soon!

Paper Idea (Sam)

Hey everyone,

I came up with an idea for my stats paper that combines both the work-flow concept and a review of statistical analyses. Because my thesis involves a lot of spatial statistics, I though it would be great for me to explore the different types of analyses used with spatial data.

I will be writing a review paper/workflow paper on how to work with spatial data and the statistics that can be used to analyze this data

The questions that I will ask are:

  • What kind of data do I have?
  • What do I have to do with my data before I start analyses?
  • What spatial statistics methods can I use with my data to answer my research questions?

Let me know what you guys think!




Hello Guys,

My research project is to understand how post-translational modifications (PTMs) of the transcriptional activator Gcn4 are coordinated and regulated on promoters of target genes.

To accomplish this, I extract my protein of interest from Yeast. Then performed immunoprecipitations followed by Western blot analysis.


Research Interests

Hi all, first time using wordpress so we’ll see how this goes. I am interested in restoration ecology and plant-animal interactions including foraging. I am currently working on developing my thesis questions.  For my systematic review I will be looking at how stats are used in restoration ecology in arid regions, since my research will take place in the desert. I look forward to the view from the top.
