Function-Valued Trait Modeling

Advanced course

Time-series data (for example, organismal growth, disease progression, or biomolecule accumulation including proteins and gene transcripts) are common in biology, but can be statistically complicated. In this module, you will learn easy ways to leverage computers to handle complex developmental trajectories in what is called a “function-valued trait” approach. Although we will focus on developmental processes, this approach can be applied to diverse data such as responses to increasing temperature, pathogen load, herbivore abundance, or changing community composition metrics.
