*Robert Gentleman of 23andMe
Statistics in the Era of Big Data – Genetics and Genomics
I will discuss some of the many statistical problems that arise when working with large genetic and genomic data sets. I will give a high level view of some of the applications of statistical reasoning to large data sets. Some views of what has worked well – what has been missed and what opportunities are coming up.
