Short description: After the course student will know how to do the survival analysis for the real medical data sets and generate variables having different distribution functions. The student will know how to plan the statistical experiment based on medical data sets.
Full description: the use of statistical packages, survival analysis, repeated data, simulation study based on variables having from different distribution fucntions, planning the experiment.

Learning outcomes: Knowledge: The student has knowledge of advanced data analysis methods for continuously distributed data BI2_W01, The student knows how to use selected statistical packages for advanced data analyses. BI2_W03, Skills: The student develops computer programms. BI2_U02,The student has the ability to analyze the continuously distributed data including the construction of models, parameter estimation and hypothesis testing in the context of probabilistic theory. BI2_U03, The student performs research tasks in the field of bioinformatics independently and as part of group work and demonstrates the ability to perform inference on the basis of complex models and hypotheses. BI2_U05, BI2_U06 Social competences: The student regularly update the knowledge of exploring biological data using bioinformatics tools. BI2_K07
Assessment methods and assessment criteria: Assessment of tutorials: Based on the average grade calculated from three written tests The final grade can be enhanced by students active participation in tutorials. The presence at tutorials is compulsory. The student may have one unauthorized absence. Completion of the course: Students with a valid credit for a tutorial undergo a theoretical exam (4 questions) using in the examination session. The examination lasts up to 90 minutes. During the exam the student has no right to use lecture notes and cannot communicate with other students. If the exam is not passed, a student has the right to retry it.
