Course n°3 - Statistical analysis of big data in systems immunology (SYSTIMMUN)
May 20th – May 24th, 2019
Course content focuses on key ideas about various statistical approaches currently used for the analysis of data generated by systems immunology studies. Systems immunology involves high dimensional data issued from high throughput technologies such as RNA sequencing and flow cytometry data. The statistical analysis of this data, as well as the understanding of the published papers on this topic, requires knowledge in specific statistical approaches.
Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to identify computational bottlenecks in one’s code, optimize a function using C++ integration through Rcpp, harvest multicore’s speed
by easy parallelization of code, and evaluate and compare speed-up gains of competing implementations.
