Course Overview:

This course will provide attendees with the opportunity to learn how (a) to understand and read modern statistics reported in scientific studies, (b) use basic modern statistics for analysing their own data, using the open access R statistical software. The course will focus more on data deriving from life sciences namely medicine, biology, and ecology. The course will initially revise basic statistical knowledge of what is a sample and a distribution, and what is hypothesis testing. Sequentially, attendees will be introduced to the R statistical software. Then the course will proceed with the use of generalised linear models and their equivalency with t-tests, ANOVA, MANOVA and ANCOVA for analysing normally as well as non-normally distributed data and ultimately quantify results, errors, and uncertainty. Attendees will also learn how to produce quality graphs and figures.

Intended Audience

This workshop is ideal for scientists any scientists seeking an introduction to statistical inference and data analysis coming from diverse scientific disciplines such as medicine, biology, and ecology. No prior knowledge of R is required. However, some prior knowledge of basic statistics is required (e.g. types of distribution, what is a dependent and independent variable (explanatory variables, e.g. body weight).
