BIOL 617 - Biostatistics and Experimental Design Lab

1.0 Credit(s) | Laboratory | Graded
for credit

This lab will cover the practical application of statistical programming for data analysis in biology. As BIOL 607 itself focuses on the conceptual material surrounding experimental design, observational survey design, and the fundamentals of the analytic techniques required to analyze said experiments and surveys, this lab will focus instead on implementation of those technique. This lab is intended to be taken along with BIOL 607, to allow students to spend time developing mastery of programming and data analytic skills. It will stress computational techniques for how to deal with modern complex data sets, efficient computation, big data, and algorithmic approaches to likelihood and Bayesian statistical problems. See the lecture and lab website at http://biol607.github.io for more.
