BIO 298 - Biostatistics

Biologists use data to understand life. This course will introduce you to the kinds of data biologists collect, how they summarize those data, and how they use statistics to interpret data and tell a biological story. We will explore data and statistics using the computer program R, which is one of the most common tools biologists use to visualize and analyze data. You will work with real biological datasets and real biological questions as you explore summary statistics, common statistical tests in biology, and graphical representations of biological data. This course should not be taken by students who have already taken another introductory statistics course, such as Math 141, because the content overlaps.
