Course Information

This course is designed to introduce the statistical theory and methods for next generation sequencing data (NGS). In recent years, NGS has been the choice of platform for genomic studies. Due to the high dimensionality of NGS, it provides unique challenges in statistical analysis and requires different statistical methods. Although NGS data are the main focus, the theory and methods are applicable to other high dimensional data such as microarray and proteomics. This course will cover statistical theory and methods specialized for NGS and other high dimensional data. It is strongly recommended that students bring their own laptop computers to classes given.

Prerequisites

BSTA 512 / 612, "Linear Models"
