New: Histograms midterm and final exam results

BioEng/Stat 141C, Spring 2002

Statistics for Bioinformatics

Julia Brettschneider


The course is based on summaries of lectures given by Bin Yu and Terry Speed in Spring 2001 which can be downloaded below. Since we are going a little slower than last year, the lecture's numbers do not match one-by-one, but the order remains the same. Problem sets, computer labs, and other handouts posted below are the ones handed out in class this semester. The material will be posted after it appeared in class, usually at the end of each week.

Information about the class:     (ps pdf)

Histograms midterm and final exam results:
NOTE: The midterm had a total of 100 points. The final exam had a total of 150 points. To make the two histograms comparable, the final exam results were rescaled to a total number of 100 points for the final exam histogram. To figure out where you are you have to rescaled your score accordingly.
