Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

This course introduces the most important basic concepts in statistics and their application to biological and behavioral research. It covers topics in univariate statistics (univariate descriptive statistics and graphical display of data, correlation, regression, hypothesis tests, ANOVA) and multivariate statistics (PCA, factor analysis, discriminant analysis & classification, MANOVA, CCA, PLS). The course focuses on a geometric understanding of the methods and on a critical discussion of their application for scientific research.
The practical part should foster the understanding of theoretical concepts via basic examples from different research fields (mainly biology related research topics). We will try to "produce" our data, visualize and analyze them.
Expectations and learning outcomes from the practical part:
- overview of the plethora of statistcal methodologies
- use of different statistical programs (SPSS, R, R Studio)
- Scientific visualization in practice
- Applied scientific reasoning and critical discussion of their statistical methodologies for scientific research

Assessment and permitted materials

The finale grade consists of an exam, active participation and practical work during the course, personal attendance and homework exercises.
