**Course objectives**- Students will get acquainted with basic statistical methods for evaluation of experimental data in human biology and will learn to use them on real data. After completing the course, they will be able to perform basic statistical analysis of experimental data in R software.
**Learning outcomes**- Student will be able to:

- to choose appropriate statistical methods for evaluating specific experimental data in human biology;

- statistically evaluate the data in the statistical program R with the use of basic statistical methods

- interpret the results of statistical evaluation of the data

- use statistical software R **Syllabus**- Basics of R software: installation, R language
- Types of data: nominal scale, ordinal scale, interval scale, and ratio scale
- Descriptive statistics: modus, median, arithmetic mean, geometric mean, standard deviation
- Hypothesis testing: null hypothesis, alternative hypothesis
- Parametric statistics: T-test, ANOVA
- Non-parametric statistics: Sign test, Wilcoxon test, Kolmogorov-Smirnov test
- Normality tests: Kolmogorov-Smirnov test, Lilliefors test, Shapiro–Wilk test
- Contingency table analysis: Fisher's exact test, Chi-squared test
- Correlation: Pearson' correlation coefficient, Spearman's rank correlation coefficient, basics of linear regression
