About the Workshop Series
In this workshop series, we introduce various types of regression models and how they are implemented in R. We will cover linear regression, ANOVA, ANCOVA and mixed effects models for continuous response data, logistic regression binary response data, and Poisson and Negative Binomial regression for count response data.
You will learn:
- the assumptions behind the different models,
- how to interpret the main effects and interaction terms in a model,
- various experimental design concepts that help maximize the power.
In R, you will learn:
- the different functions used to build a statistical model,
- how the formula object is used to specify all the model terms,
- how to use the lsmeans package to answer specific questions.
