It has been argued that just as one may revise a premise without abandoning deductive logic as a tool, one may revise a prior without abandoning Bayesian updating as a tool.

## SSC 2017 talk on the misleading nature of false discovery rates

Planned for today’s SSC 2017 session Statistical Methods for Omics Data (Room E3 270):

“Correcting false discovery rates for their bias toward false positives”

## About the Statomics Lab

The Complexity and Statistics Research Lab was called “The Statomics Lab” until 4 February 2017. The word *statomics* abbreviates statistical inference and computation in genomics. David Bickel launched the lab in June of 2007 at the Ottawa Institute of Systems Biology.
