Generalised linear models

Binomial GLM

In our experiments we often count how many times something happened: how many mice died, how many people got infected by a pathogen etc. You need "counting statistics" techniques to analyse these data. This course teaches you one such technique, "generalised linear models" (GLMs). Please note that we cannot go into the specific data analysis problems of your particular project.


Somewhat morbidly the examples in this course revolve around life and death.

Out of scope

This course will not teach you bioinformatics. In particular, no high-throughput sequencing data will be used because they are impractically large, and not everyone on campus is working with sequencing.


Practical information

Number of participants: minimum 5, maximum 10.

Length: The course takes one half-day, from 09:00 to 13:00 with 2 breaks.
