Statistical Tools Help Solve a Challenge in Biology

Researchers develop a strategy for analyzing incomplete data sets

Missing data is a common and challenging problem in a broad range of scientific studies.  This is particularly true in the analyses of real-world data. For example, in the study of biological systems it is difficult to completely sample a population with a wide variety of traits (characteristics like body size, age and habitat).  It is impossible to sample everything, and missing data is almost inevitable.

Can Math save the planet?

Not alone, but... Math can do some cool things to help us. So many of us struggle with math and fail to see the beauty of patterns, and the power of big data. While the wicked problems of today cannot be solved by math alone, it plays a critical role in a multi-disciplinary approach to finding the solutions we need.
