Basic Biostatistics & Bioinformatics

practical concepts and coding for everyone

SLUBI and the SLU Centre for Statistics are bringing you a workshop series focused on R and applications in bioinformatics.
Mondays in even weeks, 09:45
Campus Alnarp, Horticum
or via Zoom (Password: 410 410)

We are running a topic-driven discussion series where Adam Flöhr from the Centre for Statistics discusses the statistical magic behind some of the common methods we use, and Lizel Potgieter from SLUBI uses data to show a hands-on example of how to execute the analyses.

All data and codes of past sessions is available at
