Description

 

GraphPad Prism is one of the most used software in life sciences for statistical analysis and data presentation.

It is a graphical user interface (GUI) that requires no coding or programming skills. The workshop aims at teaching the main functionalities of Prism. The course is structured on a mix of theoretical introduction to fundamental statistical concepts (eg: frequentist inferential statistics, types of variables, types of tests, p-value interpretation, correlation/regression, multiple comparisons), a presentation of related Prism tools and (mostly) illustrative examples to apply and practice the newfound skills.

Individual and group practical works will both be used, either under a guided form or as problem-based learning. Beyond the different procedures to implement statistical analyses, the practical exercises will put a particular emphasis on:

- a sound interpretation of tabular readouts;
- the many graph options;
- and caveats about data dredging and p-hacking (that may be facilitated by the ease of use of GIU software)

 

PARTICIPANTS MUST COME WITH THEIR LAPTOPS AND THE INSTALLED SOFTWARE GraphPad Prism.
The GraphPad Prism Trial version is FREE and valid for 30 days. Make sure to downlaod it just before the course.
