Bioinformatics and Statistics Resources: Statistics

Information and resources on bioinformatics and statistics for the UCSF research community


The Reading tab in this guide lists eBooks, blogs, Q&A sites, and other resources for those of you who want a statistics refresher or just some inspiration.


The Software tab in this guide is a list of statistical software programs that are either open source, free of charge, or that UCSF supports through discounted academic licenses.

For more resources on programming, check out the Data Science Initiative's Programming page. We also regularly offer short courses and workshops, and "Hacky Hour" meet-ups where you can get coding help from peers and find collaborators. Check the calendar for upcoming events here.
