Introductory Biostatistics for Biologists
14-15 March 2024
Debora Zoia, CUSO MPS coordinator
Romain-Daniel Gosselin, Dr., CHUV
The objective of this workshop is to highlight the systematic and universal nature of the vast majority of statistical flaws and their solutions. The course aims to explain the importance of biostatistics for science reproducibility/reliability and teach good practices.
The lectures are tailored to biologists and concentrating on logic thinking behind biostatistics. Particular emphasis is placed on experimental design, analysis and presentation. The sessions include lectures and a workshop where attendees can apply their newfound skills in critically analysing the statistics in published articles.
Biostatistics: A short (and digestible) introduction to biostatistics; Statistical inference: good understanding of p-values and NHST; Statistical design: power, independence of variables, randomization
The last afternoon is largely dedicated to common discussion on biostatistical questions and problematics related to students' research projects. Questions will be sent to the teacher some weeks before the course through a form.
