This four-week graduate level course will give participants basic skills and hands-on training in statistics and descriptive data analysis.
This course is (primarily) dedicated to first year PhD students of the Institut Pasteur (each of them entering our institute will be automatically registered to the course), but applications from 2nd and 3rd year PhD students and postdocs working at the Institute are encouraged. Applications are accepted within the limit of the number of places available. First year PhD students with a background in mathematics or physics are allowed to ask for an exemption. The course consists in a series of three-hour lectures per day, four days a week over four weeks mixing closely theory and practical work.
This course is organised twice a year, with a first session in fall (Lwoff building) and a second session in winter (BFJ). Each session can accept 35 students.
