      The software I use the most if graph-pad for doing statistics but I hate it! It hurts my head!

      Definitely Matlab – it is a powerful bit of software, kind of a pseudo programming language, that is great for statistics, analysing data, producing graphs, anything really. Because it is so flexible, it takes a while to get good at using it, but its well worth it. It’s used across many different science areas too.
