Advancing in statistical modelling for evolutionary biologists and ecologists using R (ADVR07)

4 December 2017 - 8 December 2017

https://www.prstatistics.com/course/advancing-statistical-modelling-using-r-advr07/

Course Overview:
This course will provide an introduction to working with real-life data typical of those encountered in the field of evolutionary biology and ecology. The course will be delivered by Dr. Luc Bussiere, Dr. Tom Houslay and Dr. Ane Timenes Laugen who are all practicing academics in the field of evolutionary biology.  This five day course will consist of series of modules (each lasting roughly half a day) covering model selection and simplification, generalised linear models, mixed effects models,  and non-linear models. Along the way you will gain in depth experience in data ‘wrangling’, data and model visualisation and plotting, as well as exploring and understanding model diagnostics. Classes will comprises of a mixture of lectures and practicals designed to either build required skills for future modules or to perform a family of analyses that is frequently encountered in the biological literature.

Intended Audience
The course is aimed at biologists with a basic to moderate knowledge in R. The course content is designed to bridge the gap between basic R coding and more advanced statistical modelling.

Monday 4th – Classes from 09:00 to 17:00
Course introduction; techniques for data manipulation, aggregation, and visualisation; introduction to linear regression. Packages: {tidyr}, {dplyr}, {ggplot2}

Tuesday 5th – Classes from 09:00 to 17:00
Linear models (diagnostics, collinearity, scaling, plotting fitted values); fitting and interpreting interaction terms; model selection and simplication; general linear models and ANCOVA.
Packages: {stats}, {car}

Wednesday 6th – Classes from 09:00 to 17:00
Generalized linear models (logistic and Poisson regression); predicting using model objects and visualizing model fits. Packages: {broom}, {visreg}, {ggplot2}

Thursday 7th – Classes from 09:00 to 17:00
Mixed effects models in theory and practice; visualising fixed and random effects.
Packages: {lme4}, {broom}, {ggplot2}, {sjPlot}

Friday 8th – Classes from 09:00 to 16:00
Fitting nonlinear functions (polynomial & mechanistic models); brief introduction to more advanced topics & combining methods (e.g., generalised linear mixed effects, nonlinear mixed effects, and zero-inflated and zero-altered models). Packages: {nlsTools}
