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.
