Valid statistical analyses and reproducible science in the era of high-throughput biology High-throughput technology (eg, sequencing, mass spec) allows us to quantify biological mechanisms at a resolution that array technology and small scale experiments cannot. In the next 5-10 years, a substantial portion of biological research is expected to leverage some of these technologies. This flexibility comes with a price, however. Modern high-throughput instrumentation relies on built-in data collection protocols that are often biased. For instance, a mass spec selects the most abundant ions, at...
