The end goal is to drive confident engagement with data analysis and further training - increasing the quality and reliability of interpretation, and putting that interpretation and subsequent presentation into the hands of the researcher. Each day of the course will deliver a mixture of lectures, workshops and hands-on practicals – and will focus on the following specific elements. Day 1 focuses on basic approaches and the computer skills required to do downstream analysis. Covering: Basic skills for data manipulation in R. How to prepare your data effectively. Principles of experimental design and how this influences analysis. On day 2, participants will explore the core concepts of statistics – so that they can begin to see how they can be applied to their own work, and to also help with better critical evaluation of the work of others. Covering: Basic statistics concepts and practice: power, variability, false discovery, t-test, effect size, simulations to understand what a p-value means. On day 3 we will continue to explore core concepts of statistics, focusing on linear regression and multiple testing correction. Course materials are available [here](https://github.com/cambiotraining/stats-intro). This event is supported by a BBSRC Strategic Training Awards for Research Skills (STARS) grant.

OME has three components: * OME-TIFF, standardised file format and data model; * Bio-Formats, a software library for reading proprietary image file formats; and * OMERO, a software platform for image data management and analysis. In this one day course, we will present the OMERO platform, and show how to import, organise, view, search, annotate and publish imaging data. Additionally, we will briefly introduce how to use a variety of processing tools with OMERO. This course is organized alongside a one day course on Biological Imaging Data Processing for Data Scientists. More information on this event are available [here](https://training.csx.cam.ac.uk/bioinformatics/event/2280783). This course will be delivered by members of the OMERO team. The OME project is supported by BBSRC and Wellcome Trust.

In the morning session, we will briefly go over the basic syntax, data structures and control statements. This will be followed by an introduction to writing user-defined functions. We will finish the course by looking into how to incorporate existing python modules and packages into your programs as well as writing you own modules. Course materials can be found [here](https://github.com/pycam/python-functions-and-modules/blob/master/python_fm_intro.ipynb). Note: this one-day course is the continuation of the [Introduction to Solving Biological Problems with Python](http://training.csx.cam.ac.uk/bioinformatics/course/bioinfo-python/); participants are expected to have attended the introductory Python course and/or have acquired some working knowledge of Python. This course is also open to Python beginners who are already fluent in other programming languages as this will help them to quickly get started in Python.
