Data Exploration and Analysis

JMP 101: Teaching Statistics with JMP

Are you a statistics instructor who's new to JMP and wondering, "Where do I start?" Or perhaps you've taught with JMP before but could use a refresher on the fundamentals. Either way, this webinar aims to give you the foundational knowledge you need to use JMP effectively in your teaching. We provide an overview of JMP and explain the JMP interface, data importing, summarization and graphing, foundational analyses such as regression and ANOVA, and saving and exporting your work. Along the way, we highlight some tips for teaching with JMP and briefly review our collection of free teaching tools and resources.

Tools for Data Exploration

Each new data set we encounter brings with it the need for initial data exploration. Before building models or running tests, we need to summarize the data numerically and graphically, screen for patterns or anomalies, and ensure that the data are suitable for further analysis. Put more generally, we need to "get to know" our data. In this webinar, you’ll learn JMP tools and techniques you can use for  the initial exploration of every new data set you analyze.

Data Summary and Analysis

This webinar reviews methods of summarizing and graphing data in JMP, including tables, box plots, scatterplots, and geographic maps.  We also cover analyses for univariate and bivariate data (ANOVA, regressions, logistic regression, and contingency tables) and extending these to multiple predictor models. Finally, we briefly cover multivariate summary (correlations) and clustering, plus creating word clouds to summarize text data. 

  • Who should watch? 
    Any student, researcher or faculty member interested in using JMP for data summarization and/or analysis.
  • What can I expect to get out of the webinar? 
    You will learn how to conduct univariate, bivariate, and multivariate data summarization and analysis in JMP.

Preparing Data for Analysis with JMP

Guest Speaker:
Robert H. Carver, Ph.D.
Professor of Management and Data Science Program Director
Stonehill College

The 2016 GAISE College Report advocates the incorporation of technology, real data, multivariate thinking, and the importance of the full analytic process in college-level statistics courses. It is clear that data management –including acquisition, merging, subsetting, and preparation -- is a key part of the process.  Yet it is a challenge for college instructors to add data management to an already-full course. Data management tasks can be daunting for a student, and the prospect of teaching SQL in Intro Stat can appear overwhelming.

Advanced Research Methods

Research Methods with JMP: Clustering, Factor Analysis, and SEM

In this webinar we will explore techniques needed for Research Methods, including high-dimensional data visualization and modeling using JMP's graphing and multivariate analysis platforms (e.g. Multivariate, Cluster, PCA, Factor Analysis, and SEM).

Advanced Research Methods with JMP

With JMP Pro for Academic Research, you get all the sophisticated techniques and advanced analytics available in JMP Pro. For academic researchers, this translates into a greater ability to efficiently extract meaning from complex data and build better-performing models. In this webinar we see how to estimate a priori power for complex designs using the new Simulate facility in JMP Pro 13. We also expore tools for finding outliers, calculating new variables, shaping and restructuring data, as well as analysis methods for multiple comparisons in the context of large ANOVA designs.

Analyzing Functional (aka Curve) Data with JMP Pro

Researchers in numerous domains often encounter functional data, or one continuous measure that unfolds across another. Prominent examples include chemical spectra, financial series, and sensor data; think any data where the unit of analysis is not a single point, but a curve. Functional data analysis (FDA) offers techniques to analyze these curves in order to characterize their shapes and to understand how other variables affects their shapes, how their shape characteristics affect other variables, and even how to optimize their shapes. JMP Pro's Functional Data Explorer  enables researchers to use FDA techniques to solve analytic problems involving this potentially challenging type of data. This webinar will provide an overview of FDA and Functional Data Explorer in order to help you add FDA to your research tool belt.

JMP for Social Science Research

Overview of tools and analyses useful for research in the social sciences, including tabulating, graphing, ANOVA and regression.

Genetics and Genomics with JMP Genomics

An Overview of JMP Genomics: Expression, GWAS, and Plant Breeding

JMP Genomics is a statistical discovery software package for universities and research organizations that enables statistical geneticists, biologists, bioinformatics experts and statisticians to uncover meaningful patterns in high-throughput genetics, methylation and expression (metabolomic, transcriptomic and proteomic) data. In this webinar we look at three topic areas in genetic and genomic research and see how JMP Genomics speeds up the analysis and discovery process for (1) Expression Analysis, (2) GWAS, and (3) Plant Breeding. 

Running and Interpreting a Basic Expression Analysis

This video shows how to set up, run, and interpret a basic expression analysis in JMP Genomics. In this example I use the Basic RNAseq Workflow, which is a pipeline of some simple exploration on the markers and samples (looking at expression distributions for samples, removing "bad" samples, normalizing the samples' expression, exploring correlations and principle variance components) directly into an ANOVA analysis on the log2(expression) to find markers that are statistically significantly differentially expressed. We explore the resulting output as volcano plots (which we can filter further), Venn Diagrams to find markers significant in multiple comparisons, and tables of information about the final set of selected significant markers. This analysis can apply to any kind of continuous data across any kind of biological markers, such as metabolomics, proteomics, or expression.

Getting Started with JMP Genomics: Overview of Studies, Import, and Workflows

In this video we take a tour of the Genomics Started in JMP Genomics software.
Use this Genomics Starter to explore examples, add studies, import data, and use workflows for common analytical processes.

Getting Started with JMP Genomics: Creating the EDF and Importing SAM and BAM Files

Learn to import SAM or BAM files into JMP Genomics, taking raw (but aligned) data files and creating appropriate count data files that can be used in further analyses within JMP Genomics.

JMP Genomics: Move or Share Results

When you move or share a folder of JMP Genomics results, the paths will break. This is a short video to show you how to easily fix those paths.

Special Topics

The Scientific Workflow in JMP: Creating Reproducible Analyses

In the webinar we will see how to use JMP journals and scripting to keep track of an analysis workflow in a professional research environment. Our attention will be on how to create analyses that are easily reproducible if data were to change, and the documentation of an analysis process for reporting in journals or to professional colleagues.

JMP Integration and Extensibility

In this webinar we explore many ways to extend core JMP functionality through its integration with R and Python. We show how to connect JMP to R and Python, how to create your own add-ins for JMP that take advantage of these connections, and where to find more examples and help on this topic. We also reference the JMP integration with SAS, CAS, and Matlab, and even code-generation in Python, C, SAS, SQL, and Javascript.

This webinar is geared for JMP users who need an analysis available only in R or Python, or users of R and Python who also want to make use of time-saving, interactive, and powerful features in JMP, as well as JMP users who want to package a JMP GUI front-end for an R or Python routine, to allow other JMP users to “use” R and Python in a JMP point-and-click interface.

Finding the variables that most impact a response when there are more variables than observations (using Bootstrap Forest). 4. Comparing variation between two groups of highly-dimensional data (using Principal Component Analysis).

Generalized Linear Mixed Models in JMP: GLMM Add-In

Jan 27, 2021. Presented by: Ruth Hummel

This webinar covers how to use Generalized Linear Mixed Models in JMP using a new JMP Add-In. These models are commonly needed by researchers, practitioners, professors, and students in the life sciences and related fields. Example will cover mixed models with continuous normally distributed data and then with count data (with integer values 0, 1, 2, …), and with proportion data (with the number of successes out of a specified number of trials). We also cover the basics of random effects, the concept of LSMeans, back-transforming estimates and CIs, creating interaction plots on the original data scale, warnings about the interpretation of differences, and the idea of overdispersion and accounting for this in the Poisson distribution with an experimental unit effect. The webinar is divided into five parts.
