|Description:||About the course
This course will provide delegates with an introduction to the principles of statistics, and an appreciation of why they might want to use statistics as part of their scientific research. At the end of the course, delegates should be able to use statistical measures and graphs to describe populations, apply simple hypothesis tests to analyse a variety of data types, and describe the relationship between two variables using statistical measures.
Who is it for?
The course is aimed at researchers in the biological sciences, at all levels of R&D, who find that they need to be able to use statistics to describe and analyse their data. No prior knowledge of statistics or statistics software is assumed, as the course starts from the basics and builds up. The course is highly practical in nature, with half of the course time dedicated to computer practicals so that delegates can apply the techniques they are learning to real biological problems.
