Quantitative Skills for Biomedical Science

Data Visualisation and Analysis

No items found.

Learn to properly process and present data in a wide range of biomedical science contexts and scenarios. This includes understanding when and how to use different graphs, basic statistics, and understanding and calculating precision and accuracy.

Learning Outcomes

  • Select suitable graphs for different types of dataset
  • Design high-quality scatter plots and interpret lines of best fit
  • Calculate different measures of average and spread for provided datasets
  • Distinguish between high and low experimental precision and accuracy
  • Calculate precision (% CV) and accuracy (% difference) of biomedical experimental data
No items found.


Concepts Principles and Theories

  • Working familiarity with terms including different types of graph/visualisation, trendlines, mean, median, mode, range, standard deviation, scientific precision and accuracy, % CV and more
  • Applying this familiarity to answer a range of questions in biomedical contexts

Manipulating and Presenting Data

  • Exploring how scientific data can be represented in different ways e.g via text, tables and visualisations. How to make high-quality scientific graphs
  • Finding fundamental statistics from biomedical datasets, and calculating scientific precision and accuracy

Interpreting and Analysing Data

  • Making use of numerical data and text information from a biomedical lab scenario
  • Using the skills learned throughout the sheet to interpret and analyse this data
