Dear All,

We are pleased to announce the following SIB course on:

Advanced Statistics: Statistical Modelling<https://www.sib.swiss/training/course/20210816_ASSM>

which will be live streamed on 16 - 19 August 2021.

While the statistical models and tools presented in an introductory statistics course (such as linear regression) can be used to answer a wide range of questions in life sciences, many types of data can not be analyzed using these simple approaches.
This 4-day course presents advanced topics, such as generalized and mixed-effects linear models. We will further discuss the application of mixed-effects linear models in analyzing longitudinal data. Finally, in an attempt to move beyond linearity, we will explore extensions of linear models, such as polynomial regression, splines, local regression, and generalized additive models. Throughout the course, the emphasis will be put on concrete applications in clinical and biological data analysis using real world examples.

Further detailed information, prerequisites and application form are available here<https://www.sib.swiss/training/course/20210816_ASSM>.

Should you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact us at training at sib.swiss<mailto:training at sib.swiss>.

Best wishes,
