The course will take place on four mornings:

- Friday, 4 June 2021, 10:00 – 13:00 CET

Each day consists of a lecture, a practical demonstration in R and a set of exercises.
This course teaches basic statistical concepts that will immediately help you to better understand your data, and which are also the foundation for many advanced topics.
- Data exploration and visualization in R
- What are common statistical distributions of biological data?
- What distribution do my data follow?
- How do statistical tests work in general?
- Tests for comparing two groups
- Contingency tables
- How can we measure association of two variables?
- Pre-installed R and R-Studio
The course is offered by EMBL Heidelberg and will be held online.
To avoid Zoom-fatigue, we’ll do our best to keep the lectures short and give more time for exercises.
We will be working in R, but we will not learn – nor require – advanced programming. The focus of the course is on the statistical concepts. Please help us to adapt the content to your pre-knowledge by answering the questions in the booking form.
Researchers from all EMBL sites are welcome to participate.
