BIOL 39500DIST Experimental Design & Quantitative Analysis in Life Sciences

Session Offered:

Summer Credit 3


None, but one is suggested: high motivation to learn experimental design and quantitative analysis.


This course is aimed at preparing our students in experimental design and quantitative analysis specifically applied to the Life Sciences in order to read the scientific literature critically, generate scientific questions, hypotheses and predictions, design research studies, analyze the data statistically, and communicate results. The course will use R and RStudio, which are open-source platforms that are increasingly used in the scientific community to analyze data quantitatively.
