Computational Data Analysis

This two-week hands-on advanced course is intended for undergraduate, Master and PhD students, and post-doc researchers of biological/biomedical fields who may have basic knowledge of statistics and data analysis but want to learn the basics of fundamental advanced computational techniques to analyze large complex data sets. The hands-on tutorials will focus on exploratory data analysis of real data generated in neuroscience experiments, which is intrinsically multidimensional often combining molecular, functional/physiological and behavioral dimensions, but the methodologies being taught can be applied to any type of experimental data. The goal of this course is to provide biological/biomedical scientists with knowledge and confidence to implement custom tools to analyze and interpret complex multi-dimensional data generated in their own experiments.

Research Methodologies

This course provides students with the knowledge and skills associated with the scientific activity. The goals are focused on knowledge about strategies of research issues, scientific literature search, and types of scientific articles and impact indicators of scientific publications. Additionally, the course promotes the development of research skills in literature, writing and peer review.
