Hi every one, I am in final year of my PhD in bio sciences (cancer genetics). I need help in statistics. Does anyone knows how to apply spear man correlation ? Also how to do haplotype analysis on case control study of polymorphisms. I have data and want to apply these. Please help.

Hi romana_sarwar, this thread might not be the best one to post in for a response to your specific question. If you post this inquiry as a new thread and give it a heading that highlights 'statistical inquiry', you may receive responses. I'm a statistics amateur (qualitative researcher) and can't help. Try re-posting though, there would be people out there who have knowledge in the area you are seeking. Best wishes, P.

Hi everyone...newbie to this thread, here.

I've just started my 4th year (has to be my final year due to finance and the fact that I couldn't cope with a 5th!)

I have to finish some analysis (been awaiting (substantive) supervisor input for months) and then all the writing up! Had huge anxiety issues over the summer which are still continuing and I keep feeling like I'm losing time.

Hi there, sorry to read about the anxiety with the waiting for feedback and then the writing to follow. Are you able to write or do some lit review upgrades or reference checks while waiting for the feedback? This might help with some of the anxiety that arises from not working and might also help knock off some of the less interesting but important organisational tasks. You will get there though, I'm sure.

I have had a three month or so extension added to my preferred submission date due to my second supervisor who has been very busy and taken a long time to return chapters. I did follow up with emails and while I felt like I was pestering, was worried that it might slip off her agenda if I didn't follow up, especially as my final 6 months of this doctorate has been via distance due to a new job and an interstate move.

Second Supervisor now only has one chapter (my final main chapter) and the conclusion to return, and I am expecting these in the next day or so. Corrections only take an hour or so as they are very minor corrections. It has been a long exercise in patience. Hoping to post I've submitted very very soon...

Don't be too afraid of asking for a timeline from your supervisor regarding feedback. It is possible to do this and still be polite and have reasonable expectations I think. Good luck PerceptualLenna.

I have just submitted! So happy about this. My second supervisor raced through the final chapters in record time in the last couple of days once she had managed to work her way through some responsibilities and I made the corrections every time I received some feedback. Worked round the clock in the last day and evening and it has been uploaded and officially submitted.

Whew!! I will let people know of outcomes/corrections when it's marked. Most likely at least another 3 months or so before I even hear, but ah well. Best of luck to all on this thread-its a great feeling to be here at long long last. Just under 6 years to the day of starting the PhD as a part time student :) :) :).

Congratulations on submitting.

Thank you PM133! It helped completing the PhD in the area that I work in. That can make a real difference to time lines I think. Thanks for your response, cheers P.

Congrats, Pjlu. Well done.

I submitted my thesis as well almost three weeks ago and I am still waiting for dispatch confirmation. Could not enjoy the submission moment yet.
