This five weeks graduate level course will give participants basic skills and hands-on training in biostatistics. It will cover all the steps of an analysis workflow : design, collection, curation, hypothesis testing and data mining. The course can be divided into four different topics whose practice is mandatory for those seeking to implement a relevant analysis workflow. Thus, it will cover basics and practice in unix, text file management, R and biostatistics. We will focus on the topics useful for scientists working in a wet lab: experimental design, hypothesis testing, production of good scientific plots.
