Applied Statistics in Molecular Biology with Dr Strauß

When: 19th to 23rd of February 2018, 5 full days (actually starting time TBC)

Where: in room N02.008 in the BMC

Course Content:

"Applied statistics in molecular biology" is a practical course designed to provide you with a smooth way in handling, visualising, and statistically testing data.                                                                                                                         It is run with real world data collected in the lab in the last years. The software we use is R and Rstudio, open source statistical programming language.                                                                                                                   Neither knowledge in statistics nor in R is required to follow the course, although it is very useful to have your own data in mind when thinking about statistics.
The purpose of the course is not to show you fancy high class statistics but to help you with everyday questions regarding the data you often collect.
