Master Bio-informatiqueUE Probabilities and statistics for modelling 1


This course is a quick revision of the basics of probability and statistics. The concepts will be taught in relation to concrete biology exemples (genome analysis, complex systems). The following concepts will be taught :

  • Combinatorial analysis
  • Probabilities concepts
  • Discrete distributions (Bernouilli, binomial, geometric, hypergeometric, Poisson)
  • Quick review of the basic continuous laws (normal and Student’s distribution)
  • Estimation and sampling
  • Statistical hypothesis tests

Some biological examples of applications could concern the probability of patterns in genomic sequences, the detection of differentially expressed genes.
