One day course on Compositional Data Analysis

The Finnish Society of Biostatistics organizes together with Natural Resources Institute Finland (LUKE) a one day course on Compositional Data Analysis in Tampere on Thursday 2019-05-23.

Course description

Compositional data arises in many different situations where variables represent the parts of the whole. Biostatistical examples include, for instance, body composition (bones, muscles, fat, water, other), time use during a day (sleeping, sitting, standing, exercising), food composition (protein, fat, sugars, etc.), genetics (genotype frequencies) and land use (urban, agricultural, forest, conservated, etc.).

The course is given by Prof. Pepus Daunis-i-Estadella (Research Group in Statistics and Compositional Data Analysis, University of Girona)
