The course will be highly interactive as it will contain a combination of interactive lectures, work groups, discussions and computer practice. During computer practice, real data from animal studies, qPCR experiments, cell-line data, immunohistochemistry, flow cytometry, etc. will be used to get familiar with the methods, the interpretation, and the visualization of the outcome of the analysis. We will make use of SPSS for the analysis. We will also briefly discuss the information you should provide in the method section of a scientific paper.
After this course you are able to:
Design laboratory and small animal studies, including sample size calculations.
Identify the type of data that you get out of your experiments.
Select the best way of analysing and interpreting your in vitro and in vivo data.
Write a proper method section for manuscripts.
