Enago Academy’s previous webinar covered the introductory concepts in Biostatistics such as the importance of statistics, commonly used statistical software programs, types of data and charts, and frequency distribution. In continuation of the same, we are glad to announce our next webinar as part of the series on Biostatistics by Dr. Traci Marin (Ph.D., University of California, USA), who will further throw light upon some important phenomena.

Note: In case you have missed the first part of the Biostatistics series, you can attend the session now via https://www.enago.com/academy/a-crash-course-on-biostatistics-introduction/. This crash course will have 1 more session covering other important concepts such as odds ratio, regression analysis, and multiplicity.
