I took the Mathematical Biostatistics Boot Camp 1 last offering and I found it great. Now a new version of this course Mathematical Biostatistics Boot Camp 2 starts next week and it is an opportunity to continue interacting with great courses.

Information about the course is found below (retrieved from the course website).

About the Course

This class presents fundamental concepts in data analysis and statistical inference, focusing on one and two independent samples. Students having taken this class should be able to summarize samples, perform relevant hypothesis tests and perform a collection of two sample comparisons. Classical non-parametric methods and discrete data analysis methods are discussed.  The class is taught at a master’s of biostatistics introductory level and requires Mathematical Biostatistics Boot Camp 1 as a prerequisite.
