Dr Bernd-Wolfgang Igl
Statistical Analysis of the Comet assay
Research and Clinical Sciences Statistics, Bayer AG, Berlin, Germany
The single cell gel electrophoresis assay, also known as Comet assay, is a widespread test within genetic toxicology and sensitive to detect chemically induced DNA damages in various tissues. This webinar will start with an introduction to the toxicological background and the test principle itself, including a description of the standard experimental design. Different statistical strategies will then be presented; the focus will be on the in-vivo Comet assay. Finally, the use of median instead of average tail intensities per slide will be described and discussed; this is suggested in the updated OECD Guideline for the Testing of Chemicals No. 489, thus directly affecting the statistical analysis.
PSI Webinar: Wearable Technologies - Challenges and Opportunities
Wearable technologies and digital health data offer great opportunities for studying patients functionally in real life settings. Actigraphy, for example, can be used as part of clinical trials to collect continuous movement data, but the frequency of data collection results in dense datasets requiring extensive processing and signal detection. In this webinar, a panel of expert speakers will discuss how such aspects can be addressed to help realize the promise of these technologies.
Our annual PSI Medical Statistics Careers Event, will be held online using the Career Fair Plus app on Wednesday 3rd March 2021. The event will include a live online panel discussion and a virtual exhibition session.
