Course description

This course will take place 21-25 February 10:00-16:00 both in person at Henke Str. and online via Zoom. We will finish at 16:00 at the latest each day and there will be plenty of breaks.

This course focuses on hypothesis testing and reproducibility in science. You will learn how develop and test your own hypotheses, perform basic statistical tests and apply this knowledge to reproduce (and potentially improve) published results. There will be a combination of lectures and group exercises.

Each student is assigned to a working group and each group is assigned a published scientific paper (chosen by some of you).

Before the course

Read the paper assigned to your working group.
