Lectures and recorded videos provide context, background and step-by step guidance on how to conduct and interpret a selection of statistical analyses.
By working through a series of exercises, you will learn how 1) to conduct data exploration and determine an appropriate approach to data analysis, and 2) to analyse and interpret results from a range of parametric and non-parametric statistical analyses. After three weeks of a compulsory unit on statistics, you will choose one of four options meant to introduce you to advanced topics. The compulsory statistics unit is assessed through online tests; the options are assessed separately.
The course is designed to extend the learning from BI2018 Biological Enhanced Skills Training by reinforcing basic principles and introducing statistical modelling. Throughout the course we aim to instill a robust approach to statistical analysis.
|Session||First Sub Session||Credit Points||15 credits (7.5 ECTS credits)|
Review of basics of data exploration and analysis using linear modelling; depending on the option taken - fundamentals of using geographic information systems; bioinformatics and their application; statistical computing using R; and, experimental design.
Information on contact teaching time is available from the course guide.
