Ifyou work with any large datasets, you have probably heard of bootstrapping. If you are a burgeoning statistician or bioinformatician, it is part of your computational toolset. What is the point of using this function? More importantly, what is bootstrapping anyway?
Bradley Efron first published the idea of bootstrapping in 1979¹. This computer-intensive technique became more popular and useful as computing power became cheaper and more available. Indeed, researchers have cited the bootstrapping method more than 20 000 times.
