BIOS 221: Modern Statistics for Modern Biology (STATS 366)

Application based course in nonparametric statistics. Modern toolbox of visualization and statistical methods for the analysis of data, examples drawn from immunology, microbiology, cancer research and ecology. Methods covered include multivariate methods (PCA and extensions), sparse representations (trees, networks, contingency tables) as well as nonparametric testing (Bootstrap, permutation and Monte Carlo methods). Hands on, use R and cover many Bioconductor packages. Prerequisite: Minimal familiarity with computers.

BIOS 270: Planetary Health: Socioeconomic & Ecological Links Between Human Health & Earth's Natural Ecosystems

Two of the biggest challenges humanity has to face - promoting human health and halting environmental degradation are are strongly connected and too big to be addressed in an incremental, sector-specific way. Breakthroughs can be achieved through a creative, interdisciplinary approach that fully recognizes the complex nature of links between human health and healthy, functioning ecosystems. Through a series of lectures and case-study discussions with experts from multiple Schools and Departments, students will develop an in-depth understanding of the "Planetary Health" concept, its foundation, goals, priority areas of action and methods of investigation, and the most relevant immediate and long-term challenges.

BIOS 300: Advance 1

This is a journal club course where each student is required to present on an original scientific publication. Th student is mentored by a postdoctoral fellow in that area of research on the ¿¿cience. The student is also coached on how to make slides, how to present in a rigorous and scientific manner. Students are also required to ask and answer questions about each paper so that class participation is also a major component of the training. A goal of the course is to expose students to a broad range of scientific topics and technologies and to develop in them the ability to rigorously evaluate them. A second goal is to have students learn presentation skills ranging from figure making to story telling to answering difficult questions. A third goal is to train students in asking rigorous questions in a professional manner.
