BIOL 039 – Epigenetics

Online

This course will address the basic principles of epigenetics, the role of epigenetic mechanisms in normal development and human disease, and the development of epigenetically-effective drugs. The objective of the program is to provide a solid foundation of information enabling participants to design experiments when returning to their own research lab. Furthermore, to provide a [....]

BIOF 093 | Machine Learning with MATLAB

Online

This two-day workshop focuses on data analytics and machine learning techniques in MATLAB® using functionality within Statistics and Machine Learning Toolbox™ and Deep Learning Toolbox™. The workshop demonstrates the use of unsupervised learning to discover features in large data sets and supervised learning to build predictive models. Examples and exercises highlight techniques for visualization and [....]

BIOF 098 | Introduction to Statistical Analysis in R

Online

Statistical analyses are regularly required for nearly every quantitative scientific study. Although simple data analysis tools are tenable for small-scale analyses, more rigorous software can enhance analysis replicability, improve data management, and facilitate more advanced analysis techniques in addition to scaling up to larger datasets. One such program, R is a free, open-source software that [....]

PPOL 074 | Program Evaluation for Scientists, Engineers, and Health Professionals

Online

In this “LEARN BY DOING” class, students will enhance their understanding of: 1)What program evaluation is and why it is important 2)Program evaluation framework (e.g., stakeholder participation) 3)Methods for evaluating programs (e.g., population-based vs. program-based) 4)Program evaluation standards 5)Development of a program evaluation plan 6)Understanding the difference between a good and poor program evaluation

BIOF 076 | Visualization with R
