As part of the School of Science and Technology Mathematical Sciences Research Seminar Series, Ruth Staunton, Mars Petcare UK presents: Companion animal faecal microbiota: A messy multivariate data set.

Abstract

How external factors influence the micro-organisms that live in the canine or feline digestive tract is of immense interest to a pet food manufacturer such as Mars Petcare. However, data generated to quantify the abundance and diversity of these bacteria present many issues to be considered by a statistician including experimental design considerations, interpreting compositional data and dealing with overdispersion. In this presentation I will talk through an example study explaining how we approach the analysis of a microbiota data set but also focussing on life as an industry statistician.
