Cours générique

Bioinformatics and Biostatistics / U900 - 2013

The program includes an introduction:

- to approaches in biostatistics and research, explaining to participants the principles, methodologies, use of statistical methods and applications in biology and clinical research. Courses on software R will be delivered in the form of additional exercises. The basis of the programming language R will be discussed and the statistical approaches, presented in the theoretical part will be implemented.
- to appropriate tools for studying Systems Biology approaches by exposing participants to the principles, methodologies, uses and applications of appropriate tools. In addition, this training course will be offered as practical trainings.

The U900 offers a series of courses in biostatistics and bioinformatics to the staff of the Institut Curie, Research Center and Medical Section.
