Objectives :  

To introduce probability, descriptive statistics and statistical inference in the context of the study of Biology.   The course covers the typical content of an introductory statistics course plus some additional topics. The notion of statistical inference is introduced very early in the course by means of randomization tests and the exact sampling distribution of the sample proportion based on the Binomial distribution. The examples in probability are mainly oriented toward topics of interest in genetics and bio-informatics s at an elementary level.
