Applied Statistics for Molecular Biologists

06.11.2017 – 07.11.2017

Workshop Details:
Date: Monday, 06 November - Tuesday, 07 November 2017 (2 days)
Venue: BMC, Großhaderner Str. 9, Planegg-Martinsried
Language: English
Trainer: Tobias Straub

Workshop content:

This course is directed toward those molecular biology researchers that are interested in getting an introduction in statistical handling of quantitative data. Focus will be both the creation as well as the interpretation of statistical data. Various ineractive showcase excercises will be provided to cover e.g. qPCR, quantitative imaging, treatment-response cases.

  • Mathematical knowledge is not required, the course will be formula-free.
  • Types of Quantitative Data in Molecular Biology
  • Descriptive Statistics, Reporting and Visualizing Quantitative Data
  • Population Space, Statistical Inference, Induction
  • Error Bars
  • Statistical Tests
  • Test Theory
  • P-Values, Generation and Interpretation
  • Common Statistical Tests
