GraphPad Prism provides users with an full-featured, comprehensive biostatistics application that aims to assist biologists and researchers in analyzing complex sets of data and generating understandable graphs.
The application bundles a wide array of features and tools designed to guide you through all the necessary steps of organizing the information and performing detailed statistical analysis. While is is not intended to replace a professional statistics software, it can handle large data sets and allows you to perform various tests and measurements.
What makes GraphPad Prism worth your time is that it is not intended solely to statisticians, although having basic knowledge about the significance of the performed calculations is somewhat mandatory.
Its spreadsheet-like interface allows you to visualize the data in a structured manner, while providing quick access to all the tools you need. One cannot argue about its data organization capabilities, which is a rather important aspect, especially when it comes with scientific information.
GraphPad Prism helps you perform non-linear regressions and significantly simplifies curve fitting, since it can fit multiple data sets with a single operation.
Despite its easy approach, the application provides advanced analysis options. It is capable of automatically interpolating unknown values, performing statistical tests (F, T and ANOVA) to compare fits or test residuals for normality and much more. One of its most important advantages is that it uses a totally understandable language, avoiding statistical vocabulary.
GraphPad Prism bundles all the tools that you would expect from an application of its type. It runs detailed, thorough analysis and then enables you to check the resulting data for errors by retracing each performed step. It is a must-have tool for any researcher that conducts important experiments, generating complete projects that include more than simple graphs.
