Dear friends,

In the last day or so I’ve become aware of social media posts by a former UC
Berkeley colleague of mine. In these posts, this former colleague has published
extracts from an investigator’s report that was undertaken as part of a process by
UC Berkeley in relation to complaints made by him and another person. That
process is ongoing and its conduct is consistent with their normal procedures for
dealing with such complaints. I am co-operating with it. It has certainly not come to
an outcome, which is one of the matters complained of by this person. I have not
taken any steps to delay that process and I have co-operated fully with the relevant
university authorities.

The matters posted by this person over the past couple of days do not reflect the full
facts of the situation and I will be working to provide an accurate representation of
the events of that time. The posts do not give an accurate reflection of me as a

I appreciate the expressions of support that I have received from my friends and

Thank you,

Terry Speed's research concerns the application of statistics to problems in genetics and molecular biology. These have provided many novel challenges of both an applied and a theoretical nature. His major interests within this area are in the mapping of genes in mice and humans, including disease genes and genes contributing to the variation of quantitative traits. The Human Genome Project was a stimulus for a number of the problems he has investigated with his students. Other areas of interest include the analysis of DNA and protein sequences, for example, finding genes or motifs in DNA sequence, and the analysis of microarray data. He is currently on the editorial board of the Journal of Computational Biology, JASA, Bernoulli and the Australian and New Zealand  Journal of Statistics.
