The PLS regression, 1 day training (in French)


The Partial Least Square Regression (PLS regression) is a powerful statistical method that can be used in many situations where the classical regression is not applicable. For example, it can be used even if there is a strong multicollinearity in the data or if there are more variables than observations or if there are missing data. It is typically used in chemometrics or in OMICs data analysis. Subscribe to this training session that will let you understand precisely the principles of this method and learn how to use it in XLSTAT.

The PLS regression, 1 day training

A training on the PLS (Partial Least Square) regression that works in situations where classical regression techniques cannot be applied, for example when there is strong multicollinearity in your data, or if you have more variables than observations or if there are missing data. The training is followed by practical application exercises and tests to be submitted online for correction.
