Introduction in GraphPad Prism

The MolMed School organizes for the first time this one-day introductory course in GraphPad Prism, together with BITS (BioInformatics Training and Services), an institutional service facility from VIB, a life sciences research institute in Flanders, Belgium.

This one day hands-on introduction course will be taught by Janick Mathys from VIB Leuven.

Date: 21 September 2015

Program: Course topics:

After the basic statistics theory session in the morning, you should be able to:

  • Understand basic statistical concepts and methods for statistical analysis of life sciences data
  • Interpret and critically assess the results of basic statistical analyses

In the afternoon, we will apply the theory in Prism in a hands-on session, so you will learn:

  • What Prism is, where to find more information, how to install and use it
  • How to use Prism to handle data: reading data
  • How to use Prism to create graphics
  • How to use basic statistical techniques in Prism: mean, variance, confidence intervals, correlations, hypothesis testing…

This training gives an introduction to the use of statistics for basic analyses of life sciences data. The theoretical background will be applied in a hands-on session on real-life data using the statistical software GraphPad Prism. GraphPad Prism combines scientific graphing, curve fitting (nonlinear regression), statistics and data organization.
