Scientific Computing Review Hails JMP® 8

Scientific ComputingCalling JMP "an old friend," statistician John Wass reviewed JMP 8 for Scientific Computing and pronounces it a "major upgrade." The cover story for the magazine includes several visualizations and discusses many of the important new features of JMP 8. "This latest version is stunning in the quality of the graphics, and JMP has pioneered the advancement of statistical graphics by heavily linking most number-crunching operations to a graphic," Wass concludes.

Award-Winning Study Used JMP® Genomics

The National Center for Genome Resources (NCGR), which uses JMP Genomics to glean more information from its research findings, recently won a 2009 Bio-IT World Best Practices Award for research into the genomics of schizophrenia. NCGR integrates JMP Genomics into its analysis process to put results into statistical context after NCGR's Alpheus analysis pipeline detects important genes or regions in next-generation sequencing data.

Saving Money While Becoming Climate Neutral

Find out how the Energy Services Department at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill uses JMP to assess, monitor and help reduce the greenhouse gas emissions of an organization as large and complex as a midsize city. In a data visualization gallery, you'll see how JMP displays the university's greenhouse gas inventory, helps track energy use and helps identify opportunities for energy efficiency. So, not only does the university demonstrate its commitment to becoming climate neutral -- but it also saves tens of thousands of dollars in annual energy costs.

Uncovering Surprises in Solar Farm Data

JMP's data visualization expert, Xan Gregg, is always looking for interesting data to explore. So when SAS' 1-megawatt solar farm near headquarters in Cary, NC, started up a few months ago, he got the data and visualized it using Graph Builder, the new drag-and-drop graphing feature in JMP 8. He found a couple of surprises in the data. See if you can explain what's happening in the data! You can even download the solar farm data set.

Research Yields Ideas for Software Features

University of Texas at AustinTom Juenger, an Associate Professor in the Section of Integrative Biology at the University of Texas at Austin, feels a certain sense of ownership in JMP Genomics -- as well he should. After all, he has contributed to its design, as have quite a few other dedicated users of this customized statistical discovery software from SAS. Juenger, a longtime SAS user, began using JMP when he began studying genomics. "When you're going from looking at 10 genes to looking at thousands of genes, making biological sense of the results isn't easy -- it's impossible to do if you don't have the tools that help you easily visualize and explore the annotation of the results," he says.
