Course registration by email to Elizabeth Schroeder-Reiter firstname.lastname@example.org
Time: November 20, 2014 from 9:00-16:00
Location: Room G00.031 Biozentrum, Martinsried
This course is directed toward those molecular biology researchers that are interested in getting an introduction in statistical handling of quantitative data. Focus will be both the creation as well as the interpretation of statistical data. Various interactive showcase exercises will be provided to cover e.g. qPCR, quantitative imaging, and treatment-response cases.
Mathematical knowledge is not required; the course will be formula-free.
