I have been planning to do this small data science project & finally got sometime to actually do it.
Biostars data (Question title, day asked & associated tags) since the site is live until today (2009 - 23/02/2019) and asked some questions. Here is the brief overview
1. Which programming language is most frequently used in Bioinformatics
Depending on the tags used with the questions. I looked at
perl. The result is obvious and the major contribution goes to
2. Number of question per year
This should, in a way, reflect number of new researchers getting into bioinformatics / bioinformatics becoming an essential component of life science research.
3. Frequency of tags
This is already discussed here, a few days back (I'm just posting it as the data is very new but the results are mostly similar from that thread)
I will write a blog post with some additional analysis & share the code :)
P.S: Mods, if this thread doesn't fit into category
Blog, feel free to change / suggest appropriate category.
