BIOL 3380/5466 – Global Change Science Analytics with RMatthew R. Helmus
This course provides an overview of how researchers use 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 with 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.
