R FOR ABSOLUTE BEGINNERS (6TH EDITION)
R is a powerful statistical computing language, widely used among scientists for quick and reproducible data analysis. Its main advantages are (i) the fact that it runs easily on all computer platforms, and (ii) there are many biologyrelated packages deposited in freely available repositories, such as Bioconductor. The course is equivalent to 1 European ECTS credits.
The workshop will be divided into 2 full day sessions. It will gently introduce you to the R language, using RStudio as the development platform, and will cover some basic graphical functions and elementary descriptive statistics. The whole workshop will be hands-on oriented. Participants taking the optional final exam get a certificate with evaluation.
No prior R knowledge is required, but bring your own laptop with RStudio installed.
