The course will introduce the basic statistical tool and concepts of descriptive and inferential statistics. The lectures will be based on the book "Data Analysis for the Life Sciences with R". The learning approach will also be through the direct use of the software "to relate the concepts to data analysis". The book used for the course focuses on the use of the computer for doing data analysis rather than on mathematics. However some mathematical aspects will be explained to get better intuition of the algorithms behind the software itself. During the course the free R software will be introduced.
