Topics include an introduction to the analysis of correlated data, analysis of response profiles, fitting parametric curves, covariance pattern models, random effects and growth curve models, and generalized linear models for longitudinal data, including generalized estimating equations (GEE) and generalized linear mixed effects models (GLMMs).Course Activities: Homework assignments will focus on data analysis in SAS using PROC GLM, PROC MIXED, PROC GENMOD, and PROC GLIMMIX.Course Note: Lab or section times will be announced at first meeting.Course Prerequisite(s): BST210 or BST213 or BST232 or BST260 or PHS2000A.Formerly BIO226
