Target Audience:


23 March 2020

General context

This course is live today on YouTube: (Start at 09h30)


In this hands-on session, you will apply the theory that you learnt in the Basic statistics theory training in Prism. The following topics will be covered:

  • How to use Prism for simple statistical analyses: t tests, one-way ANOVA and non-parametric counterparts
  • How to use Prism for more advanced statistical analyses: two-way ANOVA 
  • How to use Prism to create graphs
  • Curve fitting in Prism
  • Survival analysis in Prism

Participants can bring their own data to the training.

Event intended for

VIB Bioinformatics Core distributes the Prism software for free to VIB scientists, for more information you can visit the GraphPad Prism page on This is the reason why the training is limited to VIB scientists. 

Required skills

In this course we will not explain the basic statistical concepts that are used by Prism such as categorical versus quantitative data, normal distribution, mean, median, confidence intervals, statistical tests, p-values ... We will simply show how to use the software for statistical analyses. If you're not familiar with these concepts you should attend the Basic statistics theory training.
