What is Biostatistics? http://www.worldofstatistics.org/2013/02/11/biostatistics-unveiled/ What is Biostatistics? Biostatistics is a branch of statistics that allows for the analysis and interpretation of scientific data generated in the clinical, public health, biomedical and translational sciences. "By a small sample, we may judge of the whole piece." Miguel de Cervantes (from Don Quixote)
What is Biostatistics? Business Economics, Engineering, Marketing, Computer Science Health & Medicine Genetics, Clinical Trials, Epidemiology, Pharmacology Physical Sciences Astronomy, Chemistry, Physics Areas where STATISTICS are used
