Course Detail
Course Components:
Statistics is the underpinning of scientific research. This course offers a broad introduction to methods for statistical analysis of biological and biomedical data with emphasis on the fundamental concepts of probability analysis and statistical inference and the practical application of these concepts to experimental design and data analysis. The focus will be on real-world examples that students are likely to encounter in their own research. By the end of the course, students will gain a solid foundation for understanding how to apply statistical analysis to their own data, rigorously interpreting the biomedical literature, and seeking out additional knowledge when needed. An additional component of this class will be an introduction to the statistical software R, which is one of the most used statistical packages in many disciplines.
