MSC1090 Introduction to Computational Biostatistics with R (Fall 2021)
In this course data analysis techniques utilizing the R statistical language, will be discussed and introduced, as well as, the basics of programming and scientific computing. The goal of this course is to prepare graduate students to perform scientific data analysis. Successful students will learn how to use statistical inference tools to gain insight into large and small data sets, as well as be exposed to cutting-edge techniques and best practises to store, manage and analyze (large) data. Topics include: R programming, version control, automation, modular programming and scientific visualization.
Students willing to take the course as part of their graduate program have to enroll through Acorn/ROSI. This course is part of the IMS graduate program and due to be current CoViD19 pandemic, it will be taught fully online.
