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 timeconsuming 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:
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.
More information will follow
The course is organized in collaboration with the CUSO doctoral programs in Molecular Plant Sciences (MPS), Ecology and Evolution (CUSO E&E), StarOmics (CUSO StarOmics) Microbiology (CUSO Microbiology) and the Doctoral Program in Organismal Biology of the University of Neuchâtel.
Information:Please make sure that your laptop has installed the last version of the R software (https://www.r-project.org/).
