Online Workshop Details

PRIMER version 7 will be presented by Dr Paul J. Somerfield (Plymouth Marine Laboratory)

This online workshop will provide an intensive and extensive overview of statistical methods in non-parametric analysis of multivariate data, encapsulated in the software: PRIMER version 7. It will cater to both those who are new to PRIMER and to those who are “old hands”, but have not yet had a chance to get up to speed with the latest developments in version 7. Important new tools include: shade plots with flexible ordering & clustering of axes; coherence plots to show species displaying statistically distinguishable response patterns; unconstrained binary or divisive flat clustering (as in k-means) along with SIMPROF tests; metric, threshold metric, non-metric or combined MDS in any dimensions; bootstrap averages to show variation among averages in metric MDS space; 2-way versions of BEST and RELATE; new plot types (bar, box, means, line, histogram, scatter, surface, shade) in 2-d or 3-d; animations of ordinations captured to video files; multi-factor and multi-variable segmented bubble plots in 2-d and 3-d; ANOSIM extended for ordered factors and 3-factor designs and much more.

Much of the final day of the workshop (Friday) will be devoted to Masterclass / Own-data sessions, where participants can ask questions, interact with other workshop participants in small (breakout) groups, and also consult one-on-one with the presenter to analyse their own datasets, using the tools learned during the week.
