Monday 18th November – 1-2pm – Seminar Room, Byrne House

You are invited to the next session of the Biological Interest Group on Monday 18th November. As usual it will be held in the seminar room at Byrne House, from 1-2pm. Participants can bring lunch and drinks if they wish.

Nadine Levin will be leading the session, which will be based on work entitled ‘What’s Being Translated in Translational Research? Making and Making Sense of Data Between the Laboratory and the Clinic’.

The paper is an adapted (and abbreviated/condensed) version of the fifth chapter of her dissertation, which details all of the fun complexities and negotiations involved in making and making sense of data in metabolomics (particularly with reference to multivariate statistics).

What she’d like particular comments on are (1) are there any places people get confused because of density/lack of explanation, and (2) how can she really emphasize the main points and relate them to slightly bigger issues in the conclusion.  Other than that, Nadine is happy to have any and all forms of constructive criticism (keeping in mind the paper has to be less than 8000 words including all notes and references).

The article can be obtained by emailing Jim Lowe at jwel201 [at] – As this is a work in progress please do not disseminate further without Nadine’s express permission.
