Description

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,
(2) Data import/export and data types,
(3) Using R for data mining and statistical analysis,
(4) Introduction to programming in S,
(5) Graphical display,
(6) Usage of R packages and libraries

 

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/) installed!
