2017 John S. Dunn Foundation Collaborative Research Award Program Informational Workshop April 5

The sessions will comprise three parts:
1. Overview of John S. Dunn Collaborative Research Award RFA.
2. A short workshop focused on how to prepare the components of a competitive pre-proposal.
3. An opportunity to review, discuss, and learn from previous applications.

Why is n always 3? An Introduction to Statistics in Computational Biology in R

This hands-on workshop led by Charles Lin, Baylor College of Medicine, will introduce biostatistics approaches to novice users. The goal is to “de-mystify” approaches to manipulate, understand, and analyze large datasets that might otherwise seem like “black boxes”. The workshop will take place from 11-3, and will consist of one 90 minute session before lunch and one 90 minutes session after lunch. In the first session, attendees will use the R statistical computing software to understand characteristics of large multidimensional datasets. Here they will explore how outliers and distributions can affect underlying assumptions of data, and will implement a variety of statistical approaches to quantitatively characterize datasets. In the second session, they will learn to use simulations to explore the concept of statistical power, specifically how noise and replicates shape the statistical power of different analyses. Attendees will be provided example code and datasets. R is required for the workshop, but no prior experience is needed. Sponsored by the Gulf Coast Consortium for Bioinformatics. BioScience Research Collaborative, Room 280. Questions, please contact Suzanne Tomlinson.
