Statistical Tutorial (ST)

Recent advances in cancer biology have resulted in the need for increased statistical analysis of research data. The Statistical Tutorial course is designed as a follow-up to the Statistical Analysis of Research Data (SARD) course, which was held in April 2017. The tutorial will apply the general principles of statistical analysis of research data, including descriptive statistics, z- and t-tests of means and mean differences, simple and multiple linear regression, ANOVA tests, and Chi-Squared distribution.
