During the academic year,a statistician from FIRE or FLAMES will lead a discussion of a statistics topic from a Points of Significance article.

The editors of Nature appreciate that it is tricky enough for a scientist to keep up-to-date in their own field, let alone in the ever expanding field of statistics. To help ease the burden on scientists, they have introduced a column on statistics to one of their publications, Nature Methods, called Points of Significance.

On regular occasions during the academic year, a statistician from FIRE or FLAMES will lead a discussion of a statistics topic from a Points of Significance article. We will start with the basics, that is, with the idea of sampling, work our way through a detailed discussion of ANOVA and end with more advanced topics such as Bayesian statistics.
