Great book on statistical inference

Great book on statistical inference

During the last days I noticed a really nice book that gives an updated respective a refreshment on statistical inference. It is ‘Computer Age Statistical Inference: Algorithms, Evidenve and Data Science’ by Bradley Efron and Trevor Hastie

On the webpage of Trevor Hastie is even a download link to the pdf of the book, I can highly recommend it!

New version of the bitools docker container

New version of the bitools docker container

I updated the docker container that I maintain (bitools) to keep all the bioinformatics tools together that I recently use. Yesterday I added the tool FEELnc to it, a tool to detect lncRNAs from RNA-seq data.

UPDATE: Apparently there was an issue with the Forkmanages perl module in the docker container, I fixed that on 7.12.2017 and udated the docker image v0.1.6 on Docker Hub.
