Intro to Modern Statistics

529 Boyer Hall 611 Charles E Young Dr E,, Los Angeles, CA

Through this seminar, attendees will walk away knowing when and how to run modern versions of traditional statistical analysis. These tests and the underlying bioinformatical lesson about resampling will be of use to most scientific disciplines. The course makes no assumptions about familiarity with traditional statistics – we will simply go through relatable experimental examples...

Digital Imaging Processing in Python

529 Boyer Hall 611 Charles E Young Dr E,, Los Angeles, CA

Imaging datasets are becoming easier to acquire and more difficult to analyze. This workshop will provide an introduction to some of the computational tools available for manipulating images and extracting quantitative information from them. The main focus of this workshop will be on cellular imaging however much of the techniques are broadly applicable to other...
