We still have a few spots available for the course "Applied Statistics and Bioinformatics with R and Bioconductor", which will take place in Berlin from the 22nd to the 26th of January 2018.
Registration deadline: December 20th , 2017.
Dr. Levi Waldron and Dr. Ludwig Geistlinger from the Waldron lab for computational biostatistics CUNY School of Public Health in New York City (http://waldronlab.org/)
This course will provide biologists and bioinformaticians with practical statistical and data analysis skills to perform rigorous analysis of high-throughput biological data. The course assumes some familiarity with genomics and with R programming, but does not assume prior statistical training. It covers the statistical concepts necessary to design experiments and analyze high-dimensional data generated by high-throughput sequencing, including: exploratory data analysis, principal components analysis, unsupervised clustering, batch effects, linear modeling for differential expression, gene set analysis.
Each day will include a hands-on lab session, that students should attempt and hand in before the following day by committing to the course Github repository. A selection of labs will be reviewed the following day.
