Tags: C3. Statistical concepts

Description

C3. Apply statistical concepts used in bioinformatics. In addition to the basic statistics found in many biology curricula, modern life scientists should have an understanding of the statistics of large datasets and multiple comparisons. 

  • Understand that there is a probability of finding a given sequence similarity score by chance (the P value) and that the size of the target database affects the probability that you will see a particular score in a particular search (the E-value).
  • Explain the statistical modeling used to identify differentially expressed genes.
  • Interpret data from a well-designed drug trial.
