Reproducibility talk in Houston this afternoon

I just found out that Keith Baggerly will be speaking at Rice University this afternoon. His talk is entitled “Cell Lines, Microarrays, Drugs and Disease: Trying to Predict Response to Chemotherapy.” Here is part of the seminar announcement most relevant to reproducibility.

In this talk, we will describe how we have analyzed the data, and the implications of the ambiguities for the clinical findings. We will also describe methods for making such analyses more reproducible, so that progress can be made more steadily.

The talk will be at 4 PM in Keck Hall room 102.

    it may be a good idea (if it works well and cheap).One point is that we may cut the vessel in small paktecs, tolerating some losses, reducing the severity of crash. Then assembling in space, with robots, if not self assembling.With 3Dprinting revolution, maybe sending raw material can be enough, telling a space factory finish the job.A Ford T revolution may be usefull too, making a vessel from standards parts like Mecano or Lego.If done so, a space lift, a magnetic launcher, of cheap rockets, or space plane, may allow to establish a earth-to-space highway, with few % losses.after some skepticism and horror to see NASA losing leadership in space, I have great hope that private space industry introduce cost reduction, small-is-beautiful, standardization, redundancy for me the key of Enterprise-class vessel is cost reduction WW2 was won partly because of liberty ships, and modular floatable port (like installed in Omaha beach and Avranche).Japan sustained war effort because of cheap Zero plane.Price is an important factor.
