ABOUT THE BIOMETRY PROGRAM

Biometry is the development and application of statistical methods to biological problems. At UW-Madison, biometry denotes this application to problems from plant, animal and agricultural biology. (Biostatistics denotes this application to human biology.) The Biometry Program is an M.S. degree program. The program is interdisciplinary, providing formal coursework in statistics and biology, consulting experience, and supervised research combining the two areas.

ADDITIONAL POLICY

The Biometry Program is distinct from the M.S. Statistics Program in its interdisciplinary emphasis and corresponding reduced depth in statistics. (Students interested in training with statistical consulting as the primary focus should apply for the M.S. in Statistics through the Statistics Department.) The Program is intended for two groups of students: (1) students simultaneously working towards or intending to work towards a Ph.D. in some biological discipline, and (2) non-Ph.D. students.
