Essential Epidemiologic Tools for Public Health Practice (Coursera)

In order to make a difference in the health and well-being of a population, we must understand the burden of all problems and conditions that affect the population, as well as how well our efforts to mitigate these problems are actually working. This course provides you with some essential [...]

A Crash Course in Causality: Inferring Causal Effects from Observational Data (Coursera)

We have all heard the phrase “correlation does not equal causation.” What, then, does equal causation? This course aims to answer that question and more! Over a period of 5 weeks, you will learn how causal effects are defined, what assumptions about your data and models are [...]

Network Analysis in Systems Biology (Coursera)

An introduction to data integration and statistical methods used in contemporary Systems Biology, Bioinformatics and Systems Pharmacology research. The course covers methods to process raw data from genome-wide mRNA expression studies (microarrays and RNA-seq) including data normalization, differential expression, clustering, enrichment analysis and network construction. The course contains practical [...]

Introduction to Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis (Coursera)

We will introduce methods to perform systematic reviews and meta-analysis of clinical trials. We will cover how to formulate an answerable research question, define inclusion and exclusion criteria, search for the evidence, extract data, assess the risk of bias in clinical trials, and perform a meta-analysis. [...]

Statistics for Business Analytics: Modelling and Forecasting (edX)

This is a great course for anyone who wants to gain foundational and critical analysis and statistics skills with no prior background. In this course, we explore statistical methods for examining the relationships between variables. We also consider how data from the past can be used to make forecasts [...]

Advanced statistical physics (edX)

We explore statistical physics in both classical and open quantum systems. Additionally, we will cover probabilistic data analysis that is extremely useful in many applications. This course covers non-equilibrium statistical processes and the treatment of fluctuation dissipation relations by Einstein, Boltzmann and Kubo. Moreover, the fundamentals of Markov processes, [...]

Introducción a Ciencias de Datos y Estadística Básica para Negocios (edX)

En este curso adquirirás los métodos estadísticos para la toma de decisiones en los negocios, así como herramientas tecnológicas para desarrollar habilidades cuantitativas. Áreas como el “big data” requieren un conocimiento muy claro de la estadística; en las áreas de negocios, la tecnología pone a nuestro alcance diversas aplicaciones [...]

Principles, Statistical and Computational Tools for Reproducible Science (edX)

Learn skills and tools that support data science and reproducible research, to ensure you can trust your own research results, reproduce them yourself, and communicate them to others. Today the principles and techniques of reproducible research are more important than ever, across diverse disciplines from astrophysics to political science. [...]

Introduction to Bioconductor (edX)

The structure, annotation, normalization, and interpretation of genome scale assays. We begin with an introduction to the biology, explaining what we measure and why. Then we focus on the two main measurement technologies: next generation sequencing and microarrays. We then move on to describing how raw data and experimental [...]
