Hua Liang - Basic Statistics for Immunologists and Virologists

This lecture covers basic but commonly used statistical methods. Specifically, I will first briefly introduce important families of test distributions like t-, chi-squares, and F-distributions; Second, I will present basic methods for comparison of independent data samples, for example, comparing means of two populations/groups, comparing variations of two populations/groups, and comparing means of K groups. ANOVA will be mentioned. Third, I will talk about measures of association such as correlation and regression. Basic survival concept will be introduced as well. I will try to emphasize the common errors non-statisticians easily made, and find the data sets from immunology and virology research for illustrations. If you have such data and feel comfortable to distribute, please send them to me via email. Any suggestions and comments are always welcome.
