## Course Name: Introduction to Biostatistics

#### Course abstract

Observations from biological laboratory experiments, clinical trials, and health surveys always carry some amount of uncertainty. In many cases, especially for the laboratory experiments, it is inevitable to just ignore this uncertainty due to large variation in observations. Tools from statistics are very useful in analyzing this uncertainty and filtering noise from data. Also, due to advancement of microscopy and molecular tools, a rich data can be generated from experiments. To make sense of this data, we need to integrate this data a model using tools from statistics. In this course, we will discuss about different statistical tools required to (i) analyze our observations, (ii) design new experiments, and (iii) integrate large number of observations in single unified model. We will discuss about both the theory of these tools and will do hand-on exercise on open source software R.

#### Prof. Shamik Sen

Dr. Sen joined IIT Bombay in July 2010 as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Biosciences and Bioengineering. Dr. Sen earned a B.E. in Mechanical Engineering from Jadavpur University, Kolkata, and a M. Tech in Mechanical Engineering from IIT Kanpur. He then completed his PhD in Mechanical Engineering from University of Pennsylvania, where he worked in the area of mechanobiology. He is currently working in the area of mechanobiology where he is integrating mechanics and biology for probing stem cell biology and cancer cell biology. He is combining experiments with simulations for addressing his research questions.
