## BIO 141: Biostatistics (STATS 141)

Introductory statistical methods for biological data: describing data (numerical and graphical summaries); introduction to probability; and statistical inference (hypothesis tests and confidence intervals). Intermediate statistical methods: comparing groups (analysis of variance); analyzing associations (linear and logistic regression); and methods for categorical data (contingency tables and odds ratio). Course content integrated with statistical computing in R.

## STATS 155: Statistical Methods in Computational Genetics

The computational methods necessary for the construction and evaluation of sequence alignments and phylogenies built from molecular data and genetic data such as micro-arrays and data base searches. How to formulate biological problems in an algorithmic decomposed form, and building blocks common to many problems such as Markovian models, multivariate analyses. Some software covered in labs (Python, Biopython, XGobi, MrBayes, HMMER, Probe). Prerequisites: knowledge of probability equivalent to
STATS 116,
STATS 202 and one class in computing at the
CS 106 level. Writing intensive course for undergraduates only. Instructor consent required. (WIM)
