Statistics? We Don't Need No Stinkin' Statistics!
The paper described in this blog entry is "awesome". Indeed, it has the best 'Results' section ever. The 'Results' section in the original published version of the paper started out with the following sentence: In this study, we have used (insert statistical method here) to compile unique DNA methylation signatures from normal human heart, lung, and kidney using the Illumina Infinium 27 K methylations arraysand [sic] compared those to gene expression by RNA sequencing. D'oh! (Tip of the cap to Krešo Josić.)
