The R environment for statistical computing and graphics has become an undisputed reference for data analyses in Biology and many other sciences. It combines unparalleled facilities to learn, design, explore, analyse, graph, tabulate, draft and report computational/statistical data analyses. Its simple and reliable yet powerful extensions' system (packages) makes R the environment where many new methods are developed. The RStudio interface provides an easy to use interface to this very complete system that runs almost equally in a large number of operating systems. Furthermore, R is free software. The course includes some topics in statistics and presents some programming related features of R but it is not intended as a introductory or refresher statistics course or an introduction to programming.
By the end of the course, the participants are expected to:
Previous knowledge/skills: The course assumes no prior knowledge of the R system nor any specific background except being familiar with basic text editing and file manipulation (copy, move) in computer systems.
Technical requirements: You may use the computers provided by the University or bring your own laptop in which case you'll need to make a 10 minutes check-up test two days prior to the course (details provided upon confirmation).
