We are about to reach the one year anniversary of Predicting the Future: The Steamrollers (Part 2 is here:Predicting the Future: Randomness and Parsimony). I note two elements: First, the viewership statistics of the presentation by Elaine Mardis (mentioned in The Steamrollers) dwarfs the statistics of all the other presentations at the same meeting, Second, the top image summarizes in one slide an argument developed in the The Steamrollers. The slide is extracted from this fascinating presentation by Rob Knight entitled From Correlation to Causation in Human Microbiome Studies. Go watch it, it is absolutely fascinating.
The video is part of the meeting on Human Microbiome Science: Vision for the Future. View all videos in the video playlist on GenomeTV
