Biol. 571/671 Selected Topics: Research Design and Analysis. This course is designed for advanced undergraduate students and graduate students who have taken a Statistics or Biometry course. Students will gain exposure to the process of moving from a biological question, through experimental design and analysis and presentation options. Discussions of experimental design will focus on tradeoffs arising among statistical power, ease of data collection and simplicity of presentation. Exercises in statistical analysis will focus on students' abilities to identify appropriate vs. inappropriate analysis routes, choosing among multiple acceptable models, and presentation of analyses for publication.
