This web site, developed by Muhammad Sharaf, Ph.D., covers topics of interest to scientists, engineers, venture capitalists and investors who are generating, interpreting or trying to make sense of analytical data.

Dr. Sharaf has extensive industrial experience developing analytical instruments and chemometric, signal processing, calibration, pattern recognition and data analysis algorithms. These analytical systems address diverse scientific and engineering application areas including chromatography, spectroscopy, mass spectrometry, biotechnology, genomics, gene expression, medical diagnostics, pathogen identification, environmental monitoring, trace analysis and quality control.

In addition to covering the methods and tools that can be used to analyze data generated in R&D laboratories as well as in clinical, engineering, manufacturing and quality control facilities, these discussions will also draw your attention to the common, but often incorrect, ways of analyzing and interpreting analytical results.
