PART FUNDED SCHOLARSHIPS - Advancing in statistical modelling for evolutionary biologists and ecologists using R - April 2017

Oliver Hooker
PR STATISTICS ARE PLEASED TO ANNOUNCE THAT THROUGH THEIR FUNDING SCHEME
THEY CAN OFFER 5 PART-FUNDED SCHOLARSHIPS FOR OUR UP-COMING COURSE
“Advancing in statistical modelling for evolutionary biologists and
ecologists using R (ADVR06)"

SCHOLARSHIPS CONTRIBUTE TOWARDS TUITION FEES AND ACCOMMODATION WITH 5
‘ALL INCLUSIVE PLACES’ AVAILABLE AT £450.00 (Fees have been
subsidised by 35% from £700.00).

Applications should be sent to [hidden email] and contain
the following.
1. Full name
2. Institute name
3. PhD subject title or Post doc research questions
4. Do you hold a funded position
5. 150 words why this course would be relevant to your research or how
it would help.

Application deadline is Tuesday 4th April 2017

We still have ‘normal’ places available for anyone else interested.

Full course details are given below

http://www.prstatistics.com/course/advancing-statistical-modelling-using-r-advr06/

This course will run from 24th – 28th April at Margam Discovery
Centre,
Wales.

This is an introduction to model selection and simplification,
generalised linear models, mixed effects models and non-linear models.

The course is aimed at biologists with a basic to moderate knowledge in
R. The course content is designed to bridge the gap between basic R
coding and more advanced statistical modelling. This five day course
will consist of series of modules, each lasting roughly half a day and
comprised of lectures and practicals designed to either build required
skills for future modules or to perform a family of analyses that is
frequently encountered in the biological literature.

Course content is as follows

Day 1 Course introduction
• Techniques for data manipulation, aggregation, and visualisation;
introduction to linear regression. Packages: {tidyr}, {dplyr}, {ggplot2}

Day 2 Linear models
• Diagnostics, collinearity, scaling, plotting fitted values); fitting
and interpreting interaction terms; model selection and simplification;
general linear models and ANCOVA.
• Packages: {stats}, {car}

Day 3 Generalized linear models
• Logistic and Poisson regression; predicting using model objects and
visualizing model fits.
• Packages: {broom}, {visreg}, {ggplot2}

Day 4 Mixed effects models
• Theory and practice of mixed effect models; visualising fixed and
random effects.
• Packages: {lme4}, {broom}, {ggplot2}, {sjPlot}

Day 5 Fitting nonlinear functions
• Polynomial & Mechanistic models; brief introduction to more advanced
topics & combining methods (e.g., generalised linear mixed effects,
nonlinear mixed effects, and zero-inflated and zero-altered models).
• Packages: {nlsTools}.
• Afternoon to discuss own data if time permits
or visit our website www.prstatistics.com

Please feel free to distribute this material anywhere you feel is
suitable.
