Here we will cover the advanced techniques being used by data analysis experts in the life sciences. These methods are required to analyze some of the more complex datasets, such as those found in genomics.
We will cover several topics including statistical modeling, multiple test correction, clustering, prediction methods, factor analysis and empirical Bayes methods. We will also elaborate on the use of R markdown to conduct reproducible research.
