Education and Training


BISR faculty are members of several graduate programs and often serve on dissertation or fellowship mentoring committees. We organize or lecture in many of the computational and quantitative science courses in the graduate school.

Course GS-532: Biostatistics Foundation B
This course introduces biostatistical principles and technology (R and RStudio) that are most likely to be useful to laboratory scientists interested in biomedical and translational research, including ANOVA, linear regression, logistic regression, survival analysis, and nonparametric statistics, basic designs for clinical trials, and introduces genomic RNA-sequence analysis.
