A comparison of coil combination strategies in 3D multi‐channel MRSI reconstruction for patients with brain tumors

The goal of this study was to find the most robust algorithm for a phase‐sensitive coil combination of 3D single‐cycle and lactate‐edited, multi‐channel H‐1 point‐resolved spectroscopy (PRESS) localized echo planar spectroscopic imaging (EPSI) data for clinical applications in the brain.

Cargo-cult statistics and scientific crisis

In this new article in Significance magazine, BIDS Senior Fellow Philip B. Stark and co-author Andrea Saltelli (an adjunct professor in the Centre for the Study of the Sciences and the Humanities at the University of Bergen) comment on the poor practices that result in the failure of scientific results to be reproducible and replicable, and offer an historical account of how these issues may have originated.  


Slingshot: cell lineage and pseudotime inference for single-cell transcriptomics

Single-cell transcriptomics allows researchers to investigate complex communities of heterogeneouscells. It can be applied to stem cells and their descendants in order to chart the progression from multipotentprogenitors to fully differentiated cells. While a variety of statistical and computational methods have been proposedfor inferring cell lineages, the problem of accurately characterizing multiple branching lineages remains difficultto solve.
