Statistics for (Micro/Immuno)Biologists
Created Sep 2020, Last updated: 14 December, 2022
My group is based at the MRC CMBI at Imperial College London. This document is used for the Workshop on Statistics for MRes in Bacterial Pathogenesis & Infection. This workshop is especially catered for microbiologists and immunologists (or biochemists/cell biologists in general) doing/training in basic research.
This companion to the Workshop sessions outlines code for statistical analyses in R programming language. Understanding these basic concepts can help in the design of experiments in the laboratory by carefully thinking of protocols, controls, reagents and so on.
Also check out the
grafify package (on CRAN or GitHub) for plotting graphs, performing ANOVAs and post-hoc comparisons with fewer lines of code! Detailed user guides on the vignettes website.
