Statistics Tutorials for SWEHSC

The following topics are proposed for 1-hour statistics tutorials aimed at SWEHSC investigators.


  1.   Summarizing data - Why "error bars" are the right answer to the wrong question.
  2.   Biomarkers I - Why 'statistical significance' is not 'classification'.
  3.   Biomarkers II - How change scores, ratios and naive normalization cause problems.
  4.   Measurement, replication, and variability (assay validation?)
  5.   Design issues (blocking, randomization (plates, treatments, etc.)?)
  6.   Exposure measurements (EIV) and biased estimation.
