Course objectives
The course is basic introduction into practical data analysis for students of biology and clinical study specialisations. The course accompanies theoretical lectures of biostatistics and shows the computation of presented methods on PC using statistical software (descriptive statistics, one sample and two sample tests, categorical data analysis, ANOVA, correlation and regression analysis, data visualisation, basics of experimental design).
Learning outcomes
In the end of the course student should be able to apply basic principles of biostatistical analysis and utilize them in his/her research work:
Using MS Excel for data preprocessing
Using Statistica for Windows for data analysis
Application of charts in MS Office and Statistica software for data visualisation
Application of descriptive statistics in Statistica for Windows
Application of statistical tests in Statistica for Windows
  • 1. Computer aided data analyses - introduction and principles of hierarchical data analysis. 2. Software for data analyses, data manipulation within MS-Windows. 3. Graphical features of statistical softwares - graphical presentation of continuous and categorical data, examples - model data files. 4. Exploratory and summary statistics - mean, median, confidence intervals, variance - calculations, presentation and interpretation. 5. Data distribution - graphical presentations (histograms, distribution functions), fitting to model distributions, testing of data normality. 6. One-sample testing (one- and two-tailed comparisons). 7. Two-samples comparisons (independent and dependent samples) - assumptions (normality, homogeneity of variances) and testing. Parametric tests (independent and paired t-test), nonparametric tests (Mann-Whitney, median test, Wilcoxon test). 8. Introduction to parametric and nonparametric correlation analysis. 9. Binomially distributed data - frequencies comparisons, chi-square and its applications, contingency tables. 10. Introduction to analysis of variance - assumptions, experimental design, calculations and results interpretations. 11. Analysis of model data -examples of complex data analysis (exploratory analysis, graphs and plots. 12. experimental design, hypotheses, selection of appropriate test, calculations and interpretations): two-sample testing, correlations, contingency tables.
