Our training courses contain a mixture of expository and practical sessions, allowing participants to improve their understanding of quantitative methods, to improve their ability to implement these methods using computer packages, and to improve their knowledge of non-standard situations which require expert intervention.
Our provision of training in statistics, bioinformatics and mathematical modelling has played a central role in developing our long-term collaborations with research scientists for the past two decades. The core of our training effort has been a programme of intensive one or two day courses which have taken place in rooms equipped with the necessary computing facilities, usually at the participants’ site or nearby. These courses are well received by participants, and feedback obtained from our online evaluation is largely positive.
BioSS also provides in-house statistics courses for external organisations in the UK and abroad. These courses can be adapted to the interests of the participants, and can select and mix material from a variety of our ‘off-theshelf’ courses. Workshop sessions discussing the specific interests of participants have also proved useful.
