DPWG Statement Of Purpose
It is clear that algorithms do not drive metabolomics investigation, but
rather the question one seeks to answer with metabolomics influences the
data analysis strategy. The goal of this group is to define the
reporting requirements associated with statistical and chemometric
analysis of metabolite data. This will include identifying the type of
algorithm that will be required, and where a model is built, its
construction and its validation. These points must be reported so that
the data analysis is as objective and unbiased as possible.
The DPWG will reach a consensus on the report structures needed for data processing (a) to be repeatable by other scientists and (b) to be statistically valid so that conclusions made are accurate. These shall include:
