Biomedical sciences continue to evolve. In the constantly changing environment of modern research, it is important for investigators to maintain both knowledge and familiarity with statistical computer applications. Much like the research itself, statistical software and methods continue to evolve rapidly.

This brief research guide provides a description of the most useful and relevant non-traditional statistical resources available to the 21st Century scientist.
