      So I don’t collect the data myself! Other scientists collect this data and send it to me to apply mathematical models that will help identify relationships between different variables.
      For example, is there a relationship between the proteins found in blood tests and the presence of some disease?
      I do store lots of data, but that’s usually in some sort of spreadsheet or compressed text file, so that I can read into the software I use to analyse it.
