This course is designed to expand on the biostatistical methods covered in Applied Biostatistics I. It introduces generalized linear regression including logistic regression, loglinear models (including Poisson and Negative Binomial models of count data), survival analysis, and longitudinal data including random and mixed effect models.
You can download course materials individually from this website, but it is more convenient to clone all course materials at once. However, cloning requires a system installation of
git, and the installation methods depend on your operating system. Here are git installation instructions for RStudio. If you are using RStudio on https://anvil.terra.bio (ask the professor for access with free compute),
git is pre-installed so you don’t have to install it. Once you have git working from RStudio, you can do the following to obtain a local copy of all course materials:
git submodule init
git submodule update
That’s it! You can now find 10 sessions worth of lecture and lab code, e.g. in “File - Open” or the file browser, click on “Session1” and “vignettes” to see the lecture and lab materials. Once you open an Rmd file you can click “Knit” to build it.
This course is supported by free access to DataCamp for registered students.
To add a new git submodule to this repo:
First, add the new session to the Suggests and Remotes sections of the DESCRIPTION file.
Second, invoke the following from within the local waldronbios2 clone (example for session10):
Finally, update the file
youtubeURLs.csv with links to lecture and lab recordings, then push changes:
