Objectives The aim of the course is to introduce the principles of statistical thinking and the use of statistics in science. In addition to this theoretical background, special emphasis is put on practical use of statistical analyses for data processing. After completing the course, the students should be able to process their own data and apply basic statistical methods to test hypotheses related to topics of their bachelor theses.
Subject Statistical methods for evaluating experimental results in biology
