Software for ststistical analysis
GraphPad Prism is a software package for statistical analysis which can be highly useful to analyse experimental data. Its interface is quite intuitive, and the program is also easy to use, featuring few steps in order to obtain results (data entering, choice of statistical function, results display and graph elaboration). I have used it in my lab several times, obtaining publication-grade graphs. Prism help files are very useful, so that even a novice in statistics can learn how to perform data analysis. Moreover, the software provides guidance for both test choice and results interpretation. I think that this software package is a valid alternative to more expensive ones, above all for a number of statistical analyses (t tests, one- and two-way ANOVA, log-rank comparison of survival curves).
I would recommend this product to everyone who needs to analyse complex data sets without hiring a statistician.
A 30 day fully-functional trial version can be downloaded from www.graphpad.com.
