SUMMARY:LISA Statistics Short Course: Generalized Linear Models
DESCRIPTION:
LISA SHORT COURSES IN STATISTICS\n
LISA (Laboratory
for Interdisciplinary Statistical Analysis)
is providing a series of evening short courses
to help graduate students use statistics
in their research. The focus of these two-hour
courses is on teaching practical statistical
techniques for analyzing or collecting data.
See www.lisa.stat.vt.edu/?q=short_courses
for instructions on how to REGISTER and to

Title: Generalized
Linear Models;\n
Course Information:\n
Many
response variables are handled poorly by regression
models when the errors are assumed to
be normally distributed. For example, modeling
the state damaged/not damaged of cells after
treated with a certain chemical; and modeling
the number of insects caught by a certain
kind of trap. These types of situations can often
be modeled well by a large class of regression
models called generalized linear models
(GLM). We will go over some of the basic statistical
concepts of GLM and how it is relates
to regression using normal errors. We will
also go through some data analysis examples
of GLMs in popular software such as R and SAS
(possibly JMP if time allows) and explain how
we interpret some of the output from each software.
If time allows, the Bayesian approach
to GLM will also be discussed.\n
\n
This course
will also be taught on 7/19/11.\n
