Rafael Irizarry




Dr. Irizarry received his bachelor’s in mathematics in 1993 from the University of Puerto Rico and his Ph.D. in statistics in 1998 from the University of California, Berkeley. He joined the faculty of the Department of Biostatistics in the Bloomberg School of Public Health in 1998 and was promoted to Professor in 2007. He is now Professor of Biostatistics and Computational Biology at the Dana Farber Cancer Institute and a Professor of Biostatistics at Harvard School of Public Health. Dr. Irizarry has worked on the analysis and pre-processing of microarray, next-generation sequencing, and genomic data, and is currently interested translational work, developing diagnostic tools and discovering biomarkers. Dr. Irizarry is one of the founders of the Bioconductor Project, an open source and open development software project for the analysis of genomic data.

Learn to use R programming to apply linear models to analyze data in life sciences. Matrix Algebra underlies many of the current tools for experimental design and the analysis of high-dimensional data. In this introductory data analysis course, we will use matrix algebra to represent the linear models that commonly used to model differences between experimental units. We perform statistical inference on these differences. Throughout the course we will use the R programming language.
