This training gives an introduction to the use of statistics for basic analyses of life sciences data. This training is a prerequisite introduction to a series of hands-on trainings on the statistical analysis of life sciences data: 'Basic statistics in R' and 'Basic statistics in Graphpad Prism'. If you want to follow one of these trainings, you have to follow this introduction. ├ìt will give you all the theoretical background that you need.
Those that already have a strong statistical background may register directly for the 'Basic statistics in R, part II' training.

During this 3-day introduction to bioinformatics, BITS will take you along a guided tour that covers all basic aspects of biological sequence analysis. This workshop is an ideal opportunity to get familiar with bioinformatics and its many faces! At the end, you should be able to start tackling any basic bioinformatics problem: how to obtain relevant information about your gene, you know where to get the required sequence data, manipulate the sequences, and how basic software and algorithms function so you can fine-tune it in order the get the most out of your analysis.
