Fundamentals of Biostatistics for Graduate Students


This course introduces basic coding and statistical skills needed to work with the quantitative data that are increasingly common in all life sciences. The course is designed for first year DBBS students and covers the basics of the Python programming language, and common statistical practices in the biomedical sciences, with a focus on applications in genetics and genomics. By combining hands-on computation with statistical concepts, the course aims to develop intuition for core concepts in statistical hypothesis testing, provide students a flexible set of tools for analyzing their own data, and sharpen their abilities to critically evaluate different statistical approaches. The course is appropriate for students with no prior statistics or programming experience, up to those with intermediate skills in either or both. The course website is at
