BTRY 3020

Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2018-2019.

Applies linear statistical methods to quantitative problems addressed in biological and environmental research. Methods include linear regression, inference, model assumption evaluation, the likelihood approach, matrix formulation, generalized linear models, single-factor and multifactor analysis of variance (ANOVA), and a brief foray into nonlinear modeling. Carries out applied analysis in a statistical computing environment.

When Offered Spring.
