Video Analysis of Invertebrates’ Movement

In this course you will learn how to analyse the movement of invertebrates from videos. The aim is to offer you a new analytical tool to study causes and consequences of movement in small organisms , ranging from insect to zooplankton. The course will cover all the salient aspects of video analysis, starting with basic and advanced video filming techniques (data acquisition), experimental design, and analytical pipelines for testing behavior under different environmental conditions. 

  • filming techniques and video setup
  • experimental design
  • data extraction, cleaning and visualization
  • statistical methods of movement analysis

Data Exploration and Visualization in R with tidyverse & ggplot2

Data exploration and visualization is a fundamental component of data science and scientific research. Extracting knowledge and insights from structured and unstructured data is a key skill and requires not only a good understanding of the scientific methods, but also the ability to process and visualize data in a reproducible way. In this course, you will learn how to explore, transform, analyze and visualize different data sets to gain knowledge and to communicate these insights to a scientific and/or general audience. Main themes:

  • Introduction to R, RStudio and Version Control
  • Working with different data types
  • Exploration and transformation of data using `tidyverse`
  • Fitting simple models to analyse data
  • Data visualization using `ggplot2`
