BIOL 175 KS - Applied Biostatistics

A hands-on introduction to choosing, applying, and interpreting the results of statistical methods for life scientists. The course will include traditional parametric statistics, such as t-tests, analysis of variance, correlation and regression analysis, together with powerful non-parametric randomization tests. Data presentation and experimental design will be addressed, together with a miscellany of less-common statistical techniques that find use outside of the laboratory setting. The course includes both lectures and a weekly tutorial section in which students analyze data sets and learn to use statistical software.
