Description

The open source software R (http://www.r-project.org) has revolutionized the statistical data analysis for most bioscience disciplines.The required time to learn the R software is well invested, since the R environment covers an unmatched spectrum of statistical tools including an efficient programming language for automating time-consuming analysis routines. Due to its popularity, R is continuously updated and extended with the latest analysis tools that are available in the different research fields. The R environment is completely free and runs on all common operating systems. 

This course provides an elementary-level introduction into the R environment covering the following topics:
(1) Object-oriented programming & command line interface
(2) Work environment & data import/export,

(3) Data structures

(4) Data exploration

(5) Data visualisation

(6) Basic hypothesis testing

(7) R Programming


The attendees will practice their newly learned skills using exercises on the computer. Participants could also bring their own data sets for a first exploratory round.


Please bring your laptop to the course with the last version of the R software (https://www.r-project.org/) and R Studio (rstudio.com) installed!
