Unidad de Bioestadística

Desarrollado por: Instituto de Investigación Sanitaria La Fe


The Biostatistics Unit provides an expert approach to statistical problems that arise in biomedical research. The aim of this unit is to promote quality experimental design and research planning, and ensure the use of the most appropriate methods and statistical techniques for data analysis. Thus, resulting in projects with an optimal approach capable of drawing the right conclusions and end successfully.

The functions of the Biostatistics Unit are to provide support and statistical advice to researchers and to collaborate in the development and statistical design of experiments, as well as in the processing, analysis and interpretation of experimental data. It also provides training in the field of biostatistics.


The main tool used for data analysis at the Biostatistics unit is R, which is an open source programming language and software environment for statistical computing and graphics. R is highlighted by its flexibility and adaptability to any kind of research project as well as the compatibility with other standard programs (SPSS, Stata, SAS, Excel, Access, SQL...), offering a wide variety of potent tools for data analysis.
- Workstation with quad-core processor at 3.4 Ghz and 16 GB RAM (64-bit Windows). 
- Laptop workstations with dual-core processors at 2.2 Ghz and 2 GB RAM (64-bit Windows). 
- Statistical analysis and bioinformatics software: R, Bioconductor, Python and G*Power.
