Probability & Statistics
Probability and statistics are most important subjets for all sciences. Many processes in nature are stochasic (have a random element) and require proper treatment. As an example, the motion of a molecule in solution is random, and leads to a prediction rule on the molecule position that is different than the deterministic Newton equations.
In the life sciences, probability is of major importance and concepts like molecular diffusion, molecular interaction and binding affinity stands at the heart of every biological process.
The course follows the fundamental concepts of probability, estimation theory, hypothesis testing and statistical inference.
