Methods range from the elementary, including descriptive statistics, study design, statistical interference, categorical variables, evaluation of diagnostic tests, comparison of means, linear regression, and logistic regression. These introductory methods create a portfolio of biostatistical techniques for both novice and expert researchers. More complicated statistical methods are introduced as well, including those requiring either collaboration with a biostatistician or the use of a statistical package. Specific topics of interest include microarray analysis, missing data techniques, power and sample size, statistical methods in genetics."@en ;
