#### BI 230 Biostatistics (Fall/Spring: 3)

This course will introduce biology students to the basic statistical techniques
that are used in conducting biological and medical research. The course
is divided into four parts: (1) descriptive statistics (averages, variability);
(2) probability and probability distributions (basic probability theory
and the binomial, poison, and normal distributions); (3) statistical inference
(parametric and non-parametric tests); and, (4) relationships between variables
(simple and multiple regression). Students will become familiar with a
standard statistical analysis software package and will critique actual
research papers.
