Advanced Course on Experimental Design and Analysis of Multivariate Data


From January 22 to 26, 2024, the advanced course on Experimental Design and Analysis of Multivariate Data will take place, coordinated by Professor Victor Quintino (CESAM/DBIO) from the University of Aveiro. The course will be conducted remotely via Zoom, with a total workload of 35 hours.

The course follows a problem-solving approach, exploiting teaching and learning case studies. The teaching case studies present the baseline theoretical concepts and the software (PRIMER v7 with the add-on PERMANOVA+). The learning case studies use real datasets and allow participants to apply the theoretical concepts and acquire autonomy in the choice and workflow of the methods. The course aims to develop skills in exploring and analyzing data, designing experimental setups to address specific questions, and using software to achieve these objectives.

The course is primarily devoted for students attending UA doctoral programs but can accommodate other participants. PhD students that already have their own data, should find enough time to exploit it and discuss the methods. Assessment is restricted to participants attending UA doctoral programs. To register, e-mail Prof. Victor Quintino (, no later than January 17, 2024.
