BIOL 206 - Advanced Biostatistics


During Advanced Biostatistics, students will build on the basic statistical skills they gained in Quantitative Methods and learn to apply more advanced techniques to real data.  Students will also learn to read biostatistical literature, which will build their ability to learn other statistical techniques on their own.  Students will learn a variety of techniques that are frequently used by Biology Faculty at Clark University, and so will enhance the skills students have to effectively do research in the department.  Students will learn to do these statistics in the statistical computing language R, which has become the standard in the sciences for conducting complex statistical analysis.  Students will get the opportunity to analyze data generated in Clark Biology laboratories to reinforce their learning and get valuable hands-on experience doing statistics.
