User-friendly p-values

Posted by on February 13th, 2019

A good statistic is the one that you can understand. Mean values are understandable and everybody knows how to calculate them. Most people also realize how the mean value can be skewed by an outlier. So we know what the mean represents and we are aware of its limitations. In sharp contrast, the Null Hypothesis[…]

“En Fase Experimental”: a fresh podcast with an insiders view of science

Posted by on February 13th, 2019

Every fortnight, between the British Library and the St Pancras station, inside a wooden room in the ground floor of the Francis Crick Institute, four scientists discuss the present breakthroughs in science. Unlike other discussions happening in this room, this one will reach many other Spanish-speaking people around the world. We are talking about “En[…]

CRISPR babies: a view from the centre of the storm

Posted by on February 8th, 2019

This article by Robin Lovell-Badge, published this week in Development, gives a front-row view of the CRISPR babies scandal from last year. When the story broke, we collated reactions from the field – be sure to check them out too.  Towards the end of November 2018, news broke that the Chinese researcher He Jiankui had[…]
