BIOL 3380/5466 – Quantitative Science to Solve Global Problems – Contemporary Biology – Matthew R. Helmus
This course provides an overview of how researchers use biological data to solve global problems such as climate change, mass extinction, pandemics and poverty. Students explore interdisciplinary data, from economics to public health and learn a marketable skill: communicating data in R, an intuitive statistical computer language. The course is project based, no prior coding experience is necessary, and no tests are given. Instead, assessment is on project progress and communication of a global change problem of their choice. The most successful students leave class with the quantitative skills to go out and solve our most pressing problems. Instructor permission is required. See the application here.
