Introduction to R
4-7 June 2019
|Lang||Workshop language is English|
In collaboration with the Doctoral Programs in Organismal Biology, CUSO Ecology-Evolution, CUSO Molecular Plant Sciences & CUSO Microbiology
Prof. Jérôme Goudet, UNIL
The course is organized in collaboration with the Interuniversity Doctoral Program in Organismal Biology of Neuchâtel (DP-Biol) and the CUSO doctoral programs StarOmics, Ecology & Evolution and Microbial Sciences.
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:
(1) Command syntax, basic functions,
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.
Schedule: 9:00-12:00 and 13:30-17:00
