Europe PMC: Services for academic authors http://tess.elixir-uk.org/materials/europe-pmc-services-for-academic-authors Researchers are often asked to maintain an up-to-date publication list, whether for job applications, tenure evaluations, or grant proposals. An easy way to do this is by using your ORCID iD and linking it to your published papers. An ORCID is a unique identifier - personalised number that is assigned to you when you register. By using your ORCID in addition to your name you can make sure that you are easily distinguishable from other researchers with the same name, keep track of your work through name changes, and even pull together different kinds of achievements, like grant awards, training, etc. This video shows how you can register for an ORCID, add your publications in three easy steps to build your digital CV, and how to get a personal author profile page that showcases your publications and citations.

Text mining: Key concepts and applications http://tess.elixir-uk.org/materials/text-mining-key-concepts-and-applications EMBL-EBI presents this talk on an introduction to text mining and its applications in service provision. The 1st part of this talk focuses on what text mining is and some of the methods and available tools. The 2nd part looks at how to find articles on Europe PMC - a free literature resource for biomedical and health researchers - and how to build your own text mining pipeline. The final part gives a nice case study showing how Europe PMC's pipeline was integrated into a new drug target validation platform called Open Targets (previously CTTV).

Extracting research evidence from publications http://tess.elixir-uk.org/materials/extracting-research-evidence-from-publications Bioinformaticians are routinely handling big data, including DNA, RNA, and protein sequence information. It’s time to treat biomedical literature as a dataset and extract valuable facts hidden in the millions of scientific papers. This webinar demonstrates how to access text-mined literature evidence using Europe PMC Annotations API. We highlight several use cases, including linking diseases with potential treatment targets, or identifying which protein structures are cited along with a gene mutation.

Analysis of variance

You already know a good bit about hypothesis testing with one or two samples. Now we take things further by making inferences based on three or more samples. We'll use the very special F-distribution to do it (F stands for "fabulous").

Chi-square probability distribution

You've gotten good at hypothesis testing when you can make assumptions about the underlying distributions. In this tutorial, we'll learn about a new distribution (the chi-square one) and how it can help you (yes, you) infer what an underlying distribution even is!

Hypothesis testing with two samples

You're already familiar with hypothesis testing with one sample. In this tutorial, we'll go further by testing whether the difference between the means of two samples seems to be unlikely purely due to chance.

Bernoulli distributions and margin of error

Ever wondered what pollsters are talking about when they said that there is a 3% "margin of error" in their results. Well, this tutorial will not only explain what it means, but give you the tools and understanding to be a pollster yourself!

Confidence intervals http://tess.elixir-uk.org/materials/confidence-intervals We all have confidence intervals ("I'm the king of the world!!!!") and non-confidence intervals ("No one loves me"). That is not what this tutorial is about. This tutorial takes what you already know about the central limit theorem, sampling distributions, and z-scores and uses these tools to dive into the world of inferential statistics. It may seem magical at first, but from our sample, we can now make inferences about the probability of our population mean actually being in an interval. Inferential statistics 2016-08-14
Sampling distribution

In this tutorial, we experience one of the most exciting ideas in statistics--the central limit theorem. Without it, it would be a lot harder to make any inferences about population parameters given sample statistics. It tells us that, regardless of what the population distribution looks like,...

Without it, it would be a lot harder to make any inferences about population parameters given sample statistics. It tells us that, regardless of what the population distribution looks like, the distribution of the sample means (you'll learn what that is) can be normal. Good idea to understand a bit about normal distributions before diving into this tutorial. Inferential statistics 2016-08-14
Normal distribution

The normal distribution (often referred to as the "bell curve" is at the core of most of inferential statistics. By assuming that most complex processes result in a normal distribution (we'll see why this is reasonable), we can gauge the probability of it happening by chance. To best enjoy this...
